Save the date for Sunday, October 11 which is the day we have rescheduled Confirmation Sunday for those 8th graders (now 9th graders) whose confirmation day had to be postponed due to the pandemic.  We will be welcoming into full membership that morning Adisson Arnhoelter, Connar Arnhoelter, Emma Pahl, Logan Schneider, & Whitley Schumacher.

Guidelines for Safe In-Person Worship

The following policy was adopted by the Consistory on September 3, 2020.

Here is what to expect when you come to church:

Entry to Building:

  • Only the east entrance will be open for entry beginning at 9:30AM.
  • The door will be propped open (weather permitting) to reduce touch points.
  • Please maintain proper social distancing as you are arriving.
  • You will be met outside by two Greeters who will provide you with a face mask if you do not already have one. Greeters will take your temperature and take down your name so that we have a contact tracing record of who has been in the building.  When the Ushers inside are ready for you, the Greeters will send you to the top of the stairs where the offering plate will be situated.

Entry to Sanctuary:

  • One household at a time will be met by an Usher at the sanctuary doors.
  • Ushers will hand out bulletins and seat families a minimum of 6 feet apart.
  • Seating will happen from the front of the sanctuary to the rear.
  • To maintain proper distancing, everyone must sit where directed and remain there until ushered out following service.

During Service:

  • Hymnals and Bibles will be removed to avoid touch points.
  • There will be no singing, only instrumental music.
  • We will not be shaking hands or passing the microphone for announcements/prayer requests, etc. Please let Rev. Laura know during the week if you have something you would like shared with the congregation.
  • The back Sunday School room/nursery, library, kitchen, downstairs Sunday school rooms, and fellowship area will be closed.
  • Restrooms will remain open, with limited use.
    • Restrooms: Only one person in at a time. Cleaning spray will be available to wipe down seat, door handles, etc. before/after use.

After Service:

  • Ushers will dismiss congregation from back to front.
  • When you are dismissed, walk directly out the door. No stopping, congregating, or socializing.
  • Everyone should bring their bulletin home with them.
  • Maintain social distancing at all times, we encourage you to NOT socialize in the parking lot.

We will continue to monitor the CDC guidelines and adjust this policy as necessary.

**Please remember that this policy is strict and will be strictly adhered to because we love each other.  It is our priority at Immanuel UCC to be found doing everything we can to take care of each other and to protect the wellbeing of our church family and our community.  Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to love.
