Guidelines for our Return to Worship in Person

July 26, 2020 and forward 

***The most recent update as of July 25- FACE COVERINGS (cloth or disposable masks- both are available at church- gaiters, bandanas, scarves) MUST BE WORN BY ALL IN ATTENDANCE unless under the age of 5 or a known medical condition prevents you from wearing a mask. It is suggested that if you cannot wear a mask, please stay home and watch worship live on Facebook or later in the day or week on YouTube.***  

Guidelines previously published for Maynard Lutheran Church will remain in place: 

+If you are not feeling well or are physically vulnerable in any way, PLEASE stay safe at home. We will be broadcasting on Facebook Live and posting to our YouTube channel as usual. 

+Practice SAFE SOCIAL/PHYSICAL DISTANCING (6 feet between family groups and/or 6 feet between individuals) both inside and outside of the church.  

+Pews will be marked with painter's tape. Please DO NOT sit on any taped area. We must spread out- this means you may not be able to sit in your 'regular' pew 😉 please be flexible. 

+Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at each door. You MUST wear a mask. Lysol wipes are available in each bathroom- for the health of your neighbor, please wipe the faucet, knobs, and toilet lever after using.

+Worship will NOT include: 

-Bulletins or Hymnals- the service will be posted on the screen
-Singing- instrumental music may be a part of the service
-Children's Sermon at the altar
-Passing of the offering plates
-Shaking hands, pastoral greeting as we exit the Sanctuary
-Coffee Fellowship  

+Holy Communion will be shared as we exit the Sanctuary on the First Sunday of each month. 

+Please EXIT the Sanctuary from the back, in family groups or individually. 
+Toys will NOT be available for kiddos
