Will the Sunday services be different in any way?
The worship experience will continue to be about one hour long and incorporate different elements — initially, a blend of pre-recorded and live.
Per a Durham Public Health guideline, we will not have congregational singing. Congregants may hum and clap along to the worship music provided.
Prayer will remain an essential and valued element of our service. However, in order to minimize movements in the sanctuary, persons will not be invited to pray at the altar during the service. If you wish to pray at the end of the service, please remain seated in the pew. A member of staff or prayer team may enquire if you wish to have them pray with you, while physically distanced.
All physical contact such as handshakes, fist pumps, hugs, etc. are not allowed under the current physical distancing rules.
The food bank cart remains accessible in the foyer for donations. Other furnishings in the foyer such as the Welcome Desk have been moved aside.
Informational materials are not to be handed out inside the building. Please refer to the Newsletter, Connections Facebook and the church website for announcements.
Food and beverage will not be served inside the building.
The offering plates will not be passed. Pew racks have been emptied.
Coat racks are closed. Kindly take any outer clothing, umbrellas, etc to your seat.
Access is closed to Founders Hall (the Arise congregation is using this space for services), the nursery, the kitchen and rooms in the lower level.
