COVID PLAN FOR NLUMC
Our worship services will continue to be aired on Facebook Live, Livestream and uploaded to YouTube. But note, worship live will move 15 minutes back to 10:30 am.
This will continue to be a great way to worship. We encourage you to stay home. If you choose to stay home, we honor your decision and affirm you are doing the right thing. You are very much a valued part of our church family. We will continue to be church together in a variety of meaningful ways.
If you choose to join us for Sunday Outdoor Worship, here are those details:
What You Need To Do:
Prayerfully consider your tolerance and risk factors for attending Drive-In worship. No one should feel pressured in returning to worship at this time. There are several media opportunities for anyone to join us in worship.
If you plan to attend Drive-In worship, help us by following these guidelines:
Register online at our website. This will help us with parking and lawn seating. If you are not pre-registered, no problem! A volunteer will take your attendance once you arrive.
Please wear a mask if you sit outside your vehicle. Participants older than 2 years old must wear a mask. If you forget, there will be masks available at the church. Adults who are not able to wear a mask for medical reasons are encouraged to remain at home and join us online.
Playground will remain closed.
Transportation will not be provided.
Restrooms will not be available unless there is an emergency. Volunteers will instruct you on entering the building.
Please plan to arrive at church a few minutes before worship begins. This will allow time for social distancing and attendance registration. You can also drop off your offering and pick up holy communion elements or other needed information.
Please plan to dismiss and leave promptly following worship. As much as we would all love to FELLOWSHIP, we are asking you to refrain from FELLOWSHIP at this time.
PLEASE STAY HOME IF:
You have been in close contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19.
You are experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat.
You have had a fever within the last 48 hours.
You have had a recent loss of taste or smell.
You have had vomiting or diarrhea in the last 48 hours.
* We need your help to make our Outdoor Worship go smoothly. Patience and Flexibility are important. Worship will look different from the way it did in March. But remember that the way things are done as we re-open will not be the way it will always be. We will return to more normal patterns of worship as conditions allow. Our goal will be to expand worship services, small groups and other activities as we are able.
We have an incredible opportunity to love one another in a new way during this season. God will bless our time together, whether we remain online at home or sit in our cars or in a lawn chair in the church parking lot. When we worship God, God is pleased.
