  • All persons will be asked to sign in upon entry and have their temperature taken. A Google form has been developed for our webpage and email to sign in prior to coming to church. 
  • Collection baskets will be located inside the church for depositing offerings on the way in or out. Envelopes will be at the door. 
  • Communion cups for the first Sunday (May 2) will be provided upon entry. (Please dispose of cups as you exit the building.) 
  • It is imperative that ushers be allowed to dismiss the congregation according to the guidelines in place. 
  • The church is starting with “worship only” and will reevaluate after the third Sunday in May.
