We are moving out of pandemic! On May 30th, we will return to indoor in-person worship. Here are our current guidelines: All vaccinated people will no longer need to social distance or mask at church events. It is recommended that un-vaccinated people attend our online worship, but if they wish to come for our in-person worship, they should wear masks, social distance, and avoid singing until they are fully vaccinated. Communion will remain in one kind (bread/wafer) for now. And our online live-stream will continue to offer a spiritual communion prayer for those who cannot attend in-person. At present, there are no new cases of COVID-19 being reported in Mathews County. Should something happen with a variant or some unforeseen problem, it is possible that we would have to go back to only outdoor worship and/or online worship, but we hope and pray that will not be the case. Pay careful attention to our schedule of worship as we move out of pandemic. As we move forward, we will need to remain flexible for now. We will also be having substitute organists/choir directors over the next few months as we search for a new chief musician for the parish, but we will be able to start singing and having the choir sing at our in-person worship. All meetings and ministries of the church may schedule with the office for use of space. And again, vaccinated people are no longer required to wear masks in the building or keep social distance at meetings and ministry. Our lay pastoral care will again be available to visit with people. In hospitals and other facilities, masks and reservations are still usually required. Home communion with bread/wafer only is also now possible.
