  • As you enter the building you will be provided a pre-packaged communion set and a cup for its disposal.
  • Deacons will usher you to your seating place. This means you most likely will not be seated in your "normal" seat. Rows will be closed to facilitate social distancing. Please do not enter closed rows.
  • Seats near the cry and quiet rooms will be reserved for parents with young children.
  • At the end of service we will dismiss by rows. Please following these guidelines:
    • Please place your facial covering back on.

    • Please take all trash, including your communion set, with you. Please do not leave anything behind, including personal belongings.
    • A basket will be available if you wish to give upon exiting the building.
    • Using the cup provided, dispose of your communion set in the designated trash receptacle as you leave the building.
