Sunday Services and Education Classes
Our Sunday services are taking place indoors in the Fellowship Hall AND online via Zoom. Check the website calendar entry for the Zoom link. Masks are required indoors at all times for everyone age 3 and up. Adult Forum is also meeting multi-platform. All Sunday religious education classes for children will meet outdoors, weather permitting. The Murray Room is available for children under 3. CLICK HERE for more information on religious education for children and youth.
Masks are required in the building at all times for everyone ages 3 and up on Sundays. All eating and drinking in groups must be outdoors.
Outdoor events and meetings on the beautiful Fellowship grounds are encouraged. Masks must be worn outdoors when interacting directly with children under age 12. Reminder: you must reserve space using this form just as you would for indoor meeting rooms. This allows equitable access to outdoor areas and contributes to the safety of our community.
How will I know which events are in person?
Some programming may remain virtual. Check the calendar to determine whether your events, programs or meetings will occur online, in-person or both. If still in doubt, contact the organizer of the event, or call the office.
Do I have to wear a mask?
On Sundays, masks are required indoors throughout the building for ages 3 and up at all times regardless of vaccination status.
During the week (Mon-Sat) a person working alone in a closed room may remove their mask. Masking is not required for individuals passing through the building in public spaces (hallways, bathrooms) during the week unless there are children present. For complete details about masking during the week, CLICK HERE.
What about food and beverages?
During the week and on Sunday evenings (no food or beverages permitted indoors at this time during the religious education/Sunday service hours), serving and eating indoors is permitted with the following guidelines:
- Participants must remain masked except when eating and drinking.
- Provide adequate spacing between tables and enhance ventilation by opening windows and using indoor air purifier machines during the event.
- Participants must be symptom-free.
What does “multi-platform” mean?
“Multi-platform” means the event is offered both in-person and online. Check the calendar for details on how to participate and chose the platform that best meets your needs.
