Covid-19 Service Updates

PHASE VI
INSTRUCTIONS FOR WORSHIP -- COVID 19 PANDEMIC RE-OPENING


Please note, these instructions are subject to change and update.

As the number of people receiving Covid vaccines continues to rise, and State restrictions for in-person gatherings having recently been substantially revised and limited, Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church believes the time has come to modify our Covid Instructions for attending our worship services. Our updated guidelines, as approved by the Session, are in accordance with the best guidance we have from health and medical professionals, government officials, and denominational resources. We have new sanitization methods such as an advanced fogging system and the Halo air sanitizing system installed and in use. We now have streaming capabilities to our Fellowship Hall to allow those who prefer more restrictive protocols to attend worship services at the Church. We welcome all to our worship services each and every Sunday!

YouTube Services: We will continue with worship “live” on YouTube on Sunday mornings (10:30am). Recordings will remain available for later viewing once posted. Anyone who is unable or not comfortable attending in person worship or who falls into a high-risk category is encouraged to continue to take advantage of these virtual worship opportunities. In addition, we can now stream the services to our Fellowship Hall for those who prefer to use more restrictive protocols while attending in person service.

Guidelines for In Person Services:
a. Face Masks: Upon entering, leaving or during Worship Service. wearing of masks is optional, but not required.

b. Seating –Ushers will be in the Narthex and Sanctuary to welcome and assist you in finding a seat, as needed.
Bulletins, Hymnals & Bibles – Printed bulletins will be available in the narthex, or if you prefer, you may view it on your electronic device. Bibles, hymnals and friendship pads will be in the pews. Offering plates will be passed during the service.
Children’s Church and Nursery – A nursery and children’s church will be available. Joy Maple will do a children’s moment up front (with spacing). If possible, as a courtesy to our nursery workers, if you know your children will be attending, please notify Joy Maple ahead of time so they can plan accordingly.

Please use your best judgment about when to return to in person worship. Out of love for your friends and neighbors, if you are not feeling well or have been in contact with someone diagnosed with or suspected to have COVID-19, please remain home and continue to worship with us Sunday mornings online.
