Worship Sign-Ups | September 24, 2020

Worship Sign-Ups are live for this Sunday, September 27. Pastor Dale will be preaching on Galatians in the morning and Dr. Alan Strange will be preaching on Matthew 9 in the evening. 

Physical offerings will not be taken during the services. We ask you to consider donating online or through the tithe.ly app. A wooden donation box is set up at the back of the auditorium if you are on-site and would like to give in person.

We do request that you make sure you sign up rather than just showing up. We also ask that if you sign up to attend and your plans change for either service, please fill out this cancellation form to allow space for additional worshipers.

Safety Protocols2

Indoor Worship

Outdoor Worship

In order to better love our community and promote both their safety and ours, the Session is asking our congregation to observe the following practices:
 
Prior to Sunday

  • If you haven’t yet watched the pastoral video update, please do so.
  • Take time to read the indoor and outdoor worship protocols that have been approved by Session. As you can imagine, in-person worship will be different than it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Public health and safety plays a more visible role than it did before. 
  • You must submit an RSVP if you plan to attend in-person worship at one of the offered locations. Each location has limited capacity.
  • If anyone in your household is not healthy, please worship via livestream to protect the health of others. We also ask the elderly and immunocompromised to consider worshiping via livestream at this time.  (Those who for reasons of health or conscience do not feel comfortable attending in-person gatherings at this time are encouraged to worship via livestream. While we have a command to worship our God, the session wants to preserve the liberty of conscience for all members to fulfill this command either in person or via livestream during these extraordinary circumstances.)
  • If you have any questions or need to change your reservation, please email nikki.veurink@harvestopc.org

Arrival/Departure

  • Please arrive early and proceed directly to the designated, physically spaced seating areas and sit as households.
  • Please express non-contact greetings to one another from an appropriate distance. Here are a few fun suggestions.
  • If you are participating in outdoor worship at any of the locations, please bring your own lawn chairs and/or blanket.
  • If you are participating in indoor worship at Harvest, please bring your own mask.

During Worship

  • Offering baskets will not be used for indoor or outdoor worship this Sunday. We encourage you to continue to give through check by mail or online giving.
  • We request you use your bathroom facilities at home. We hope to limit the use of the bathroom facilities at the church and the offsite locations.
  • We do not currently have a separate area designated for nursing moms during worship. 

 
This is just the second phase of our reopening. We will constantly be evaluating and adjusting our approach as the situation changes. Some of you may be disappointed that there are restrictions in place and others may be fearful that the restrictions will not be followed. Our responsibility before the Lord and to one another is to navigate these differences of opinion with grace, love, and an eagerness to maintain our unity with one another during this time. We also ask you to be flexible and open to change. Many of the decisions we make are to protect the health and safety of the most vulnerable among us, and this is a dynamic situation that will surely change as time goes on.
 
As always, please feel free to contact your shepherding elder if you have questions or concerns.
 
 
Yours in Christ,
 
The Congregational Life Team
