Event description
WFUMC will offer worship via a family reservation. Space is limited to 38 families.

About this Event

We will offer one Worship service in the Sanctuary at 8:45 am, following our established guidelines and metrics.   Reservations will be required for every attendee, wearing masks will be enforced, and there will be changes to the worship service to be as safe as possible. 

 The complete list of guidelines is below; please read carefully. 

  • Masks will be required for all individuals over the age of 3 years— no exceptions.
  • Masks must cover both nose and mouth at all times (worship leaders may remove masks as necessary, recognizing adequate distancing is in place).
  • There is a simple Check-In process, and you will need to verify your email. This will help us contact you should there be a positive COVID case following a Worship Service.
  • Walk-Ins will be asked to wait until we are certain there is adequate seating for those with reserved seating.
  • Ushers will help you find your designated seat. 
  • The Sanctuary will be reconfigured to allow for adequate social distancing.  Please observe six feet of distance between households. 
  • No admittance until 8:30 am when the doors open.  Please exit your cars with your masks on.  We will offer optional temperature checks at the door.
  • 38 families will be the maximum in a Worship Service. 

Our service will be shortened to limit potential exposure time, and the following is what you can expect:

  • There will be music during Worship, but there will be no congregational singing.
  • Offering plates will not be passed from person to person.  Ushers will be stationed at the exits, and you may leave your tithes/offering with them or continue to give online or mailing checks.
  • There will be no Sunday Morning Nursery or Children’s Church. Children must remain with families at all times.
  • Once you are seated, please remain in your seat.
  • Pastor Emily will not receive congregants after the service.
  • Once the service is concluded, you will be directed to an exit based on where you are seated in the Sanctuary. 
  • Our restrooms in the Sanctuary building are small, so they will be limited to one family per restroom at a time. After using the restrooms, please sanitize behind yourself.  Cleaning products will be available in all bathrooms.  Please stay in the area of the restrooms or the sanctuary.
  • If within five days after you attend worship you develop symptoms or test positive for COVID, please let us know. If someone who has attended tests positive, we will inform those who have attended. Much like the policy of the Oconee County School System, if you are sitting close to someone who has tested positive, you will be notified separately and may be asked to skip a week of worship. Depending on the circumstances, we may also decide to put a pause on in person worship for a week or more.
