We start at 10:30 with contactless offering, announcements, welcome, and contemporary worship. Around 11, we transition to Scripture reading and the weekly sermon. The service closes with a benediction, and perhaps a final song. We end by 12:00.
The church has been professionally sanitized prior to opening. In addition to regular cleaning and maintenance, our custodian and a team of volunteers have commited to disinfecting all contacted surfaces before and after each service.
As always, we will have a team of ushers greeting people at the door. Instead of handing out bulletins, they'll be providing hand sanitizer and masks to those who need them, and performing contactless temperature checks. You will be asked to sign in before entering.
Masks are required throughout the service. Other than that, you may see church members wearing anything from t-shirts and jeans to dresses or ties to traditional Indian saris. As long as you're clothed and wearing a mask, you'll fit right in!
To encourage social distance, the sanctuary and balcony will both be open. We ask that you sit at least three seats away from others, and that you would be willing to give up your "usual" (pre-pandemic) seat if it is too close to someone else.
Currently, we are asking families to worship together. That means children sitting with their own families, maintaining social distance from others. You are welcome to bring snacks or activities to occupy your child during the service.
Yes! We observe the Lord's table the first Sunday of every month. To minimize interaction, individual communion kits will be distributed. These are individually wrapped, single use communion packets that are touched only by the person who is going to use it.
Due to the pandemic, our greeting time during the service and fellowship time afterward have been suspended. We recommend joining one of our Zoom groups during the week to build relationships in a safe way.
We don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable at church, or guilted into attending. That's why we've committed to continuing to livestream our service. Visit youtube.com/2EFCtech to watch the service live on Sunday morning, or to replay a past sermon.
