Thank you in advance for helping us create a safe space for our in-person worship!
We will need approximately 10-12 volunteers to serve as greeters, ushers and manning the registration tables each Sunday at our two 11am in-person worship services. (sanctuary and table of grace)
I've included the link of our expectations when people rsvp: https://cumc.com/rsvp/, if you want to take a peek at it.
Here are the Sunday morning duties during our new normal worship:
- Bring and wear a mask. Obviously, we’ll have some if you need one
- Meet at 10:30 am at the welcome desk to sign a waiver if you haven't already done so. Also for taking your temperature.
- We’ll be taking staff/volunteers’ temperatures; obviously, please stay home if you’re not feeling well
- All doors (outside and sanctuary) will either be propped open or a greeter will hold open – for a touchless experience
- For ushers: no one to sit in the first 3 rows in sanctuary AND we’ve decided to let folks ‘dismiss’ themselves, instead of dismissing by rows. You still may need to assist and guide!
- For all of us: encourage mask-wearing over nose and mouth, encourage social distancing and discourage loitering – in a friendly way, of course!
- Attendees will either need to bring their printed rsvp ticket OR they’ll need to sign in at the four registration tables that we will have in front of the sanctuary doors and near the stairs of balcony. This is for contact tracing purposes.
- If it's a communion Sunday, then we WILL dismiss by rows starting with the back rows first as folks will receive communion elements from the pastors outside the Sanctuary doors.
- No offering plates will be passed at this time. Offering lockboxes are placed in the back of the sanctuary and throughout the narthex.
- If someone asks for a listening device, don't deny them one, feel free to hand them one and wipe with clorox wipe when they return. Otherwise, we're really not advertising the use of listening devices at this time.
Thank you for your assistance and cooperation in helping make our phased reopening a joyful and safe success. We cannot wait to gather together, even if it looks a bit different right now.
