Dear Friend,
This Sunday, May 31 at 10:00 am is the Feast of Pentecost, the birth of the church, and we are opening up for services. The color of the Holy Spirit is red, and we are asking everyone attending service on Sunday to wear red. We are excited, but we are also very cautious because of Covid-19, and do not want anyone to be put at risk.
If for some reason you have a chronic condition that puts you at risk, are physically vulnerable, or do not feel safe or comfortable coming back to church at this time, please know we completely understand and we want you to watch our service on Facebook Live. Go to our website and find Facebook at the top of our home page. Or go straight to the video streaming on our Facebook page. Please continue to evangelize and spread the message of Jesus and PWC!
If you are planning on attending in person, please read the following:
Face masks are strongly, strongly recommended.
According to the CDC, a mask helps to block the spread of respiratory droplets when a person is talking, sneezing, or coughing. You are wearing a mask for others.
The church building will open at 9:30 am. Please do not come any earlier.
Deacons will be at the entrances to greet you.
Collection baskets will be at the doors for you to place your gift.
There will be a limited seating capacity of 150 chairs that are socially distanced. Please do not move the chairs.
There will be no nursery.
Social distancing is important so there can be no hugging (sorry!), only “air hugs”!!! Now, there is a new term!
Bottled water will be available as you enter.
There will be no bulletins; the words to the songs will be on the television screens.
We will not be holding hands at the Our Father.
For communion, only the Body of Christ will be distributed. It will be done by our deacons, who will wear masks, gloves, and use tongs to place the bread in your hand. Deacons will come to you at your seat.
There will be no distribution of the Blood of Christ. We will receive symbolically for the community.
Unfortunately, after our service there will be no coffee and donuts. It will be important to return immediately to your car.
The gift shop will be open; the number of folks will be limited to five people. Please remember to socially distance yourself from others in the gift shop.
Our reading this Sunday is Acts 2:1-11. Please read, reflect, and pray with the scripture passage before Sunday. The music for this Sunday will be: We Believe, For the Sake of the World, Church—Take Me Back, Holy Spirit, Glorious Unfolding, and Alive and Breathing.
