In-person worship services will continue in July at HUMC — one at 9am and the other at 11am. Previously we had announced that the 9am service is for those who are minimizing their exposure to others. We are now opening the 9am and 11am services to anyone. In addition to having two services, here are some other guidelines to be aware of:
We will not serve beverages or snacks on Sunday morning.
We will not have the nursery available but you are welcomed to use the Cry Room.
We are hopeful to begin HUMC Kids by mid-July for Sunday mornings, but will reassess with a possibility of developing something else later this summer.
Please practice social distancing as you enter/exit and when seated in the sanctuary.
Do not attend worship service if you have a fever or don’t feel well.
Please wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer often.
Masks are encouraged but not mandatory.
We will have the ability soon to provide a live view of the sanctuary during worship for those who would prefer to stay home.
Communion will not be offered through the sharing of one cup. We will provide each person with their own cup and piece of bread in the most sanitary way possible.
We will not pass the offering plate. You are encouraged to give through your bank auto withdrawal, through our website, by mailing in a check or you can leave your offering in our new offering boxes that will be located in the back of the sanctuary.
These changes will be in place until the threat of COVID-19 has been greatly minimized. We believe these changes will allow us to safely meet and once again enjoy worshipping together. The Council and I are open to your ideas and suggestions for being Christian community during this pandemic level event. I look forward to being together with many of you soon.
