Connecting with the People of St. Luke's safely
Services are inside & begin at 7:45 AM at the Chapel and 10:30 AM at the Church.
For indoor services:
+ The Sanctuary has been arranged to provide the 6 feet distancing between attendees and a 20-foot distance to the choir members per the Diocese recommendations. Every other pew is closed off from seating and 6-foot designation stickers on the pews for seating.
+ Everyone should act as if they are carriers of COVID-19. We must wear our masks at all times while indoors and maintain physical distance to protect others in case we are carriers and don't know it. Being vaccinated does not mean you cannot be a carrier.
+ A worship booklet that includes the liturgy and music will be provided for all. A stack of booklets will be available with the Greeter. Everyone is allowed to sing with their mask on during the service.
+ There will be a table set up with hand sanitizer and masks-if needed, name tags, offering envelopes with pens, and an offertory basket for donations. Please sanitize your hands when entering the Sanctuary.
+ Our ushers will help everyone to arrange seating to keep everyone at a safe distance. Please take your seats upon arrival and do not socialize in the Sanctuary.
+ Sit together as a family with ample distance between attendees. We have to assume that not everyone has been vaccinated.
+ Individually packaged bread and wine for Communion are provided during the service. Wine/Juice and Bread/Gluten-free options are available.
+ We will attempt to design each service to last between 30 and 45 minutes.
+ Outdoor coffee hour will follow the service on the patio behind the church-weather permitting. Masks are optional only while outdoors for those who have been vaccinated.
The Chapel meets at 7:45 and the Church service will begin at 10:30 followed by coffee hour outside as weather permits. Plan accordingly.
