Return to In-Person Worship Updates:
May 16, 2021 UPDATE:
Following the new CDC guidelines, Emanuel’s Congregational Council approved the following beginning Sunday, May 23, 2021.
Fully vaccinated persons may choose to not wear masks on the church campus and may gather closer than 6 feet from non-household members.
Non fully vaccinated persons are to wear masks at all times on the church campus and maintain social distancing of more than 6 feet from non-household members.
Our currently modified worship practices will remain in place. These include sitting in every other pew, the taking of Holy Communion while in our pews, refraining from moving while sharing the peace, and not passing the offering plates but providing baskets at each entrance door. Council will reevaluate these practices during the summer months.
You are invited to participate in worship and the life of the church in new ways. Please let Sherry know if you are eager to serve as a worship leader. We need ushers, readers, assisting ministers, Altar Guild, communion assistants, hospitality, radio announcers, and other hands on deck. As you step back into the church think about stepping into a new role of service. We need you.
