*In-person worship has been put on hold while the covid-19 cases in Minnesota and Rice County continue to rise. Please check back later for more, and join us on facebook live or watch the video from our website in the meantime.

Protocol for Returning to In-Person Worship:

  • Register on-line each week you plan to attend, being mindful if our services fill each week, that you allow others to attend in-person as well.

  • Perform the illness self-check at home on Sunday mornings.

  • Face masks are required. Even if the MN mandate is lifted, we will maintain it.

  • Seating will be available every other pew.

  • You cannot sit by someone else unless you are from the same household.

  • Please sit at either end of the pew to maintain distance.

  • No congregational singing (humming is okay!) and minimal spoken responses.

  • Please maintain 6 feet of distance when seated, and also when entering and exiting.

  • Communion will be served to your pew in single serving packets.

  • The offering plate will not be passed, but will be on a stand in the back of the church.

  • No handshaking or hugging.

  • Wait to be dismissed from your pew at the end of worship.
