We do not feel that the time has yet come to incorporate in-person worship to our live-stream experience, but we are looking forward to that time and trust that it will happen soon.
We believe that it is important for the people of God to observe the sacraments that Jesus established. We are still weighing the potential benefits and theological implications of what some refer to as "virtual communion" but our preference is still for a physical, in-person experience. However, we are also very concerned about doing this safely and with a regard for public health. We are committed, for now, to providing these opportunities for communion with the following guidelines. Communion will take place outdoors in a well-ventilated environment. All participants will be masked when not actually taking communion or addressing the group. We will maintain distances of at least 6 feet between households. We are encouraging people to sign up for these events to help us with contact tracing and for our own benefit in planning.
