In-Person Worship – What to Expect

As of 11/14/2020 In- Person Worship has been suspended due to a spike in Covid-19 cases in our region. On December 10 the Clinton UMC Covid-19 panel will evaluate whether or not we will start up in house portion of our worship services.

In-Person Worship – What to expect Every Sunday at 9 a.m. in the santucary.

Worship in person allows you to be with other Christians in corporate worship. Hear the gospel preached and the music sung with sounds that flood the sanctuary.

1) Reservations are not required at this time. As we grow to capacity we may have to evaluate a reservation system need. But no reservation is required at this time.

2) Attendees should be willing to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 spread by practicing COVID-19 guidelines of wearing masks (if medically possible) and keeping 6 feet apart. Being willing to do this is the key to safety success.  

3) Attendees will enter through the narthex doors of the sanctuary and exit through those same doors. Handicap door use will be available for those who need it. If a line develops while waiting attendees should keep a 6 foot distance from those ahead of them.  

4) Volunteers will check attendees in and check attendees’ temperatures.

5) Ushers will seat attendees starting with the front of the sanctuary and continue toward the back. Ushers will help same household units to be seated 6 feet away from other household units.  Ushers will dismiss attendees starting with the back of the sanctuary and dismiss the front rows last.

6) Attendees may give their tithes and offering by placing them in the slotted box located in the narthex as they exit the building or continue to give online or mail in.

7) Just when you want to sing the loudest we are recommending that you do not sing along with the worship leaders.

Special considerations for the Open Air Preaching and Sunday Morning In-house

Before attending consider your own risk factor especially if you are 65 years or older or have compromised immunity system, or have respiratory health issues. Know that it is ok if you do not attend and we will see you online.

Do not come if you are ill with fever or have not recovered after testing positive for COVID-19, or you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days. You should continue to remain isolated until you are given the all-clear.

These guidelines are subject to change.
