WHAT'S IT LIKE TO ATTEND SUNDAY WORSHIP IN PERSON
during the Pandemic?
When you sign up to attend in-person Sunday morning worship, you will receive a confirmation email.
To sign up, email the Church office and Melinda will let you know if there is room. (We have limited the number of attenders to 35 people, but we have yet to reach that number. Right now, it is averaging 20.)
When you arrive at church, you will enter through the front doors and will be greeted by Alan and Deb Wilkinson.
There is a table as you enter the Sanctuary where you will pick up a program and a KN95 mask, if you need one. (They are provided. Double masking is an alternative option.) You may place your offering in the basket on that table. If it is communion Sunday (first and third Sundays) you will also pick up the pre-packaged communion wafer and juice as you enter.
You will then sit where marked by a piece of blue tape.
You will see windows open with fans blowing out on the north side to keep bring in fresh air. There are air purifiers at the front to protect the one preaching.
We ask that you arrive no earlier than 9:45am (for Sunday morning service).
The screen at the front will be showing words to readings and songs. There are two or three singers on mics in the congregation, to help lead the singing.
The bathrooms are available to use. Sanitizing products are available to use if you wish.
There is no nursery available at this time.
If you wish to ask questions of someone who attends in person, feel free to contact Lou Nop.
BECAUSE OF THESE PROTOCOLS we are able to remain open and keep everyone safe.
Note: The Deacons last met in March and decided to keep all the protocols in place and re-assess in May as more people are vaccinated. MBC will remain cautious because we value life and consider it our responsibility to care for each other.
PLEASE EMAIL CHURCH OFFICE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND IN PERSON. Melinda will get back to you to confirm.
