COVID-19

To protect vulnerable members of our community, following the outbreak of COVID-19, we have made adjustments to our regular Sunday morning worship in-keeping with guidelines from the diocese. Thank you for your understanding.

Indoor Worship

What To Expect

Service attendees sit on outdoor seating

Seating

Parties arriving will be shown to a seat by ushers. Households may occupy one bench with a blank bench between. Smaller parties may occupy one end of each bench per household (maintaining social distancing between separate households).

Liturgy Team

Liturgy

As we begin to return to our regular liturgical style, we are also able to welcome our choir back in person to provide our music, and our organist – Jeffrey Mills. However, we do ask that singing be left to the choir in order to reduce the spread of virus particulate.

No-touch offering

As before, a no-touch offering box will be made available at the rear of the church. You also can donate online at onrealm.org/saintjohnschurch/give

Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer will be provided by the ushers. Please sanitize your hands upon entering and leaving.

Coffee Hour

In-person coffee hour is suspended for the summer and we ask that everyone disperse, following social distancing guidelines.  Outdoor coffee hour will begin on Homecoming Sunday, September 19th 2021.  Please join us.

Communion

At this time, the Eucharist will be served under one kind to congregation members in their pew.
