INSTRUCTIONS FOR RE-ENTRY FOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP
We resume our re-entry for in-person worship at Trinity with one service on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. As we move forward in Phase II of the Diocesan Re-entry Plan, we will likely offer Holy Communion only once or twice each month and use Morning Prayer the other Sundays in order to minimize risk.
Anyone who is experiencing symptoms of sickness or is a person of high risk or vulnerability should stay home and should consider attending virtually. Deacon Dr. Dan Maxwell and our leadership are strongly encouraging folks to get vaccinated and to prayerfully consider attending virtual worship until effectively vaccinated.
In accordance with the directives of our diocese, in-person worshipers must:
Wear a mask (no exceptions): Please bring a mask. Masks will be provided at the door for those who need one. You must wear your mask for the entire time you are in the building. There will be no singing to the music, but you may want to hum along with the tune as you follow the lyrics.
Maintain social distancing:
You will be checked in at the fellowship hall door and reminded to wear masks and distance. Visitors will be asked for their name and phone number.
Households should stay six feet apart from other households when entering and leaving the building. We will enter through the main front entrance with the glass doors only and proceed to the worship area through the fellowship hall and entering from the side at the front of the church. Seating will be assigned by arrival as we seat each household from the back of the church to the front, maintaining six feet between households and avoiding crossing by other parties. We will dismiss in reverse, from front to back. Folks who need to be seated near the front should arrive closer to worship time.
We will be using only the worship area and the fellowship hall (for passage). We will avoid other parts of the building to limit possible points of contact with our germs.
There will be no hand shaking or hugs when communicating with others in order to keep one another safe while maintaining safe distancing. There will be no greeting line, Sunday School, Nursery or Coffee Hour. We will not stop to visit in the building, but proceed directly to worship and out to leave.
Worshipers will remain seated for the entire service in order to maintain proper distancing. Communion (when applicable) will be distributed by the Celebrant to each household at their place in the pew (bread wafer only, using tongs). Masks will be raised or lowered only to place the wafer in the mouth and then put back in place over nose and mouth.
Clean and Sanitize: Hand sanitizer will be available as you enter and at points along the route to and from the worship area. Disinfecting wipes will be available at various points as well.
Use of bathrooms: Bathrooms are close quarters and germ collectors and should be avoided. If you must use a bathroom, please use the sanitary wipes in that space to clean the spaces you touched. If a child requires the bathroom, please accompany them and clean up after them. Please wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after you use the bathroom.
Prayer Books, Hymnals, and other pew rack items will be removed in order to avoid handling things touched by others and allow for more efficient cleaning. You are encouraged to bring the bulletin that was sent to you for the respective service in order to prevent cross handling of items. Take your bulletin(s) with you when you leave.
Offerings will be placed in a stationary container as you enter or leave.
Please be open to directions for your safety and the safety of others. Services will be different due to social distancing, so please come with an open mind/heart and rejoice that we are worshipping in-person again.
