What To Expect When You Worship With Us

If this Sunday is your first time joining us for in-person worship, then we welcome you! Here are a few things to know:

  • Please enter through the 5th Ave red doors. Our Thackeray Ave side entrance is for accessible entry only.
  • Some pews are roped off to allow for physical distance between households. Our greeters can help you find seating.
  • Please plan to wear a well-fitting mask while you are in the building.
  • Communion will be celebrated using individually packaged, single-serve elements.
  • We have reduced the amount of congregational singing, and moved it to the end of the service in an effort to be cautious and responsible.
  • We ask you to check-in, so that we can notify you in the event that someone present was ill.
  • If you are feeling ill, or exhibiting any COVID-related symptoms, we ask you to participate in worship via our online service.

For families with young children:

  • Childcare is available at our 11am service in our infant and toddler nurseries (0-3 yrs). Parents, please go up the Thackeray stairwell, check-in your kids in their nursery, then return to the sanctuary via the stairs at the other end of the hallway. Follow the same one-way traffic pattern to pick up your children after the service.
  • Children 4 years to 2nd grade will be dismissed for Children in Worship midway through the 11am worship service, and be escorted to their room by a childcare volunteer. Please make sure your children have a mask to wear. After the service, please go to the Thackeray lobby where your children will be waiting on the landing with a volunteer.
