Gloria Dei Church
We are so thrilled to finally gather as a community of faith in our beautiful house of worship! And we need volunteers like YOU in order to be able to offer this opportunity. We ask that you arrive 30 minutes before the start of the 10:00 a.m. worship service.
Some items to be aware of to keep everyone as safe as possible:
Masks must be worn at all times, and no food or drink will be allowed.
Everyone will enter and exit through the Founders' Way doors ONLY.
As congregants arrive, one usher will remind groups that they need to remain socially distant from each other while a volunteer checks each person's temperature with a no-touch thermometer and another volunteer checks everyone in off of the list. They will need to have RSVPed by noon on Friday, October 30. Then two more ushers will instruct congregants on where to sit socially distanced in the Sanctuary. Following the service, the ushers will dismiss congregants row by row. On Communion Sunday (November 1), one usher will dispense communion "to go" cups to congregants as they leave.
If congregants ask, remind them that there can be NO congregational singing, and that they may mouth or whisper the words for the Litany, Statement of Faith, & Lord's Prayer under their masks.
Please do not plan to volunteer if you are feeling uncomfortable at all about gathering with others, or if you have or a close contact loved one has a compromised immune system or any underlying health concerns. It will be the same service here at church as it is watching from home!
In order to volunteer for this in-door, in-person worship service you must be able to answer "No" to each of the following questions:
