Resuming On-Site Worship

Welcome back! Our doors have reopened  for on-site worship.

 

Reservations

We are concerned for our Wallace congregation and your health is a priority to us. You will need to make a reservation to join us for worship Sunday mornings. Because physical distancing limits our capacity, reservations are required, seating is limited, and ushers will assist you. Doors open at 10:00 a.m. Please arrive early and before 10:20 p.m., to avoid a large que. There will be no access to the upper level or to the office or children’s wing.  After the benediction, ushers will dismiss you by rows and direct you on how to leave.

On-site Worship

The 10:30 morning worship service will be a different experience than how we have worshiped before.

  • The liturgy will be projected on screens. If you must have a bulletin, we encourage you to print one at home to use and take with you. The bulletin may be found here.

  • Hymns and worship music will be pre-recorded, but those attending on-site will be singing in their hearts, per county guidelines.

  • Please keep your children close to you, since there will be no nursery or children’s worship and the children’s wing is closed.

  • The playground equipment is off limits.  Please keep your children off the playground swings, slides, etc.

  • We will not be serving communion at this time.

  • Restrooms will be limited to single-person use.  Do not gather or wait in the hallway.

  • Please continue making your contributions by sending checks to the church office or via online giving; no offering will be received.

  • There will be no coffee fellowship but once outside you may fellowship with one another provided you do so away from the doors, with masks on, maintaining 6′ physical distance.

 

Please call (301-741-2391) or email Terry Carman if you have any questions or concerns.
