Returning to Indoor Services
Our “new territory” has shifted again, this time with steps toward normalcy with indoor, in-person worship every Sunday and Wednesday.
Below you will find details and instructions on current church protocols, taking into consideration both the CDC and Diocese of Atlanta’s guidelines and recommendations, last updated 6/23/2021.
- Sunday Services will be held at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM. Plan to bring a mask!
- Bulletins are being distributed once again, and both hymnals and prayerbooks are back in the pews.
- The entire church will now be fully open for seating, i.e. no longer skipping or limiting pews. If you would like to sit with your pod only, simply let the usher know and sit nearer to the aisle as an indication to others.
- You will no longer need to reserve a pew before attending worship. As such, all bookapew reservation slots have been closed.
- The congregation may now sing the hymns and service music.
- Note: There will be no communion on Sundays until August. Starting August 1, the congregation will be invited up, one pew at a time, to receive communion at the altar rail. In order to offer communion in two kinds to the congregation, the priest will take the bread, intinct in the chalice, and offer bread and wine together during distribution.
Wednesday Night Eucharist
- These services already feature communion.
- The rest of the instructions are the same as for Sundays: bring a mask, worship materials provided as normal, no more skipping pews, and no more reservations.
