Returning to Worship in the Sanctuary

Here are a few things we want to make sure you are aware of before you return to the building:

  • Hands-free face coverings are required inside the building (expect for those leading the service from a distance)

  • Some pews will be blocked off to aid in social distancing between households

  • Please maintain social distancing in the parking lot and hallways

  • The FRONT Memorial Walkway entrance will be our primary entrance. Please reserve the parking lot entrance as an accessible entrance and exit.

  • The MAIN Sanctuary Door will be our exit.

  • There will be no singing and no food or drink (other than communion)

  • Individual communion servings will be available at the very end of the service as you depart. Please use your own comfort level and discretion about receiving. 

  • Air Conditioning will be run prior to the service but no air or fans will be used during worship

  • Sanitizer, disposable masks, and offering baskets will be available as you enter and exit the sanctuary

  • If you are visiting the office, please call in advance so we can limit the number of people in the space at one time

  • Ushers and small groups will be following contact tracing and sanitizing procedures

Revival: Faith as Wesley Lived It by Adam Hamilton

Six Week Small Group about John Wesley's Life and Faith!
 
Take a trip through John Wesley's life with Adam Hamilton! Revival: Faith as Wesley Lived It, is "part travelogue--part history lesson--a lot Bible study." (cokesbury.com) This study seems to meet several of the spiritual needs mentioned by our congregation during this difficult time. The promo video for the study reminds us that Wesley began his ministry in a time of divisive politics and spiritual decline. Sound familiar? 

We will begin an in-person backyard class on Thursday June 25th,

at The Hoffmann Campfire.

596 Purdytown Tpke. Lakeville, PA 18438

 

We plan to meet on 6:30 pm Thursday evenings  – other dates and locations will be determined by the group at the first meeting.

 

Please let us know if you plan to join us and let us know if we should order you a book. hawleymc@verizon.net or 570-226-3875
