St. Andrew By-The-Sea is hosting its first in-person services since the pandemic with Sunrise Services on Easter Sunday at Coligny Beach on Hilton Head and at Oyster Factory Park in Bluffton, both at 7:00 am.
The Bluffton campus will re-launch in-person sanctuary worship on Easter Sunday morning at 9:00 and 10:30 am with Children’s Church during the 10:30 hour.
The first in-person worship service at the Hilton Head campus will be on Sunday, April 18 with one service at 10:00 am and Children’s Sunday School running concurrently. We are excited to welcome our church family back as we ReGather in person!
Since the pandemic shutdown, the COVID Steering Committee has been meeting weekly and monitoring the Beaufort County case count. In keeping with our agreed upon protocol, the four-week decline in case counts plus the rise in vaccinations gives us the confidence to safely welcome members back to in-person worship at both campuses.
We endorse this return to worship and look forward to when we can fully resume all normal service times, Sunday School classes for adults and children, and even some social time!
Worship service livestreams and broadcasts from both campuses will continue for those not yet comfortable serving or worshiping in-person, or for those out of the area.
Thank you for your feedback and positive support regarding this decision, but most importantly, for your prayers as we ReGather.
Sarah Coffin on behalf of the Church Council
