Returning to In-Person Worship


Returning to In-Person Worship!!!!

As Hennepin County COVID positivity rates have now dropped below 5%, we are excited to be moving into the first phase of our return to in-person worship! In order to keep everyone’s health and safety a priority, as well as to make the sign-up process as fair and equitable as possible, here is how signing up to attend in-person worship will work:

We are using the platform Sign-Up Genius to keep track of registrations.
The link for signing up will be available on Tuesday, February 16th AT NOON. 

Then, starting at Noon on Tuesday, February 16th, you will be able to sign up for 1 Sunday morning. You will input your information into the form, and include the number of people in your household who will be present.

We are limiting the sign-ups to 15 people. This way we are keeping our total numbers at no higher than 25 (this allows for up to 10 worship leaders, musicians and tech support team members).

If you don’t have access to the internet, you may call the church office at 763-545-1647 starting at the same time, and we will sign you up! However, please only call if you do not have Internet access.

On Friday, February 19th, at Noon, you may sign up for a second Sunday if slots are still available. On Tuesday, February 23rd, you may sign up for any remaining Sundays that are still open. We will be “releasing” 4 Sundays at a time to begin with.

This is the process we will continue to use so long as we are in this phase of our return to worship. Please honor the system, and do not sign up for more than one Sunday right away. We want everyone to have the chance to sign up who would like to. We recognize that not everyone will wish to return in-person just yet, and we understand that!

Sunday services will continue to be streamed live at 9:30am.

If you are coming in for worship, you will be required to wear a mask at all times. You will also be required to maintain a 6 feet social distance between you and any members outside of your household.

Once the Hennepin County COVID positivity rate is consistently below 3% (hopefully soon!), we will re-open at 25% capacity and with safety standards in place. This will also probably require a sign-up (or reservation).

We can’t wait to see you! We count on your careful participation to make it a wonderful—and safe—experience for everyone!
