Grace and Peace to You All,

The following will be in effect until further notice.

  1. Mask Wearing – We strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask whenever you leave home or gather with other people. This includes when coming to any church function such as worship, Sunday School, Bible Study, or any other gathering at Main Street UMC.
  1. Vaccine – We strongly encourage everyone to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
  1. Social Distancing – We strongly encourage all at-risk persons to stay home. If you must come out in public, please practice proper social distancing. If in doubt, ask your doctor if you are at-risk.
  1. Worship – Our 8:30 am and 11:00 am worship services are open to anyone who wishes to come.
  1.    Livestream– We will continue to livestream the 11:00 am worship service for those who wish to stay home and yet wish to join us in worship.
  1. If you are sick or are showing any symptoms, please stay home and join us on our livestream of the worship service.
  1. Communion – We will continue to receive communion with pre-packaged elements on the first Sunday of every month. If anyone wishes to receive communion in their homes during the livestream worship service, please have your bread and wine (or grape juice) ready in your home.
  1. Sunday School – The decision to have Sunday School in-person or via Zoom is up to each individual Sunday School class. We recommend that any in-person Sunday School class include a Zoom link for those who do not wish to meet in person.

Please continue to pray that this new wave of sickness passes quickly. Please wear a mask when coming to worship or meetings. Please practice reasonable social distancing at this time. If you are in the “at risk” category, sick, or showing any symptoms, please stay home and join us on our livestream of the worship service. Once again, we are strongly recommending that everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, please be safe, wear a mask, and practice reasonable social distancing. This recommendation is not only when coming to our church, but when out and about in public.

Pastor Joe Shoop
