The Team made the decision to resume worship with two caveats in mind.
A. Please take your temperature at home. If it is registering out of your normal range, or above 99.9, please stay home. If you have a fever, feel ill, or feel you are at high risk for COVID-19, please stay home and worship with us online.
B. To make sure we have a place for you and your family-- and to adhere to the CDC guidelines of contact tracing-- you must sign up that you are attending this service online or by calling the church office. Failure to sign up will result in your having to wait outside until the service starts to see if the service is not at capacity. Priority will be given to members of NMUMC. The current capacity is 30 persons on the first floor and 10 persons in the loft.
C. Please wear a mask that fully covers your nose and extends to your chin, from the moment you leave your car until you return to your car.
D. Please maintain 6 feet of physical distance from all those that do not live in your home. (Pews have been separated in the sanctuary to maintain this safe distance.)
E. Please refrain from all physical contact including handshakes, hugs, etc. Air hugs are great!!
F. Please wash your hands with soap and water or utilize hand sanitizer every time you enter our building. (Touchless sanitizer dispensers are available when you enter and exit the building)
G. Please ensure that children 5th grade and younger are always accompanied by an adult who is mindful of their physical distancing and hand/face hygiene.
H. Bathrooms will be available with sanitation stations in each one.
I. All doors will remain open before and after the service for safe entry and will be clearly labeled entrance and exit only. The stairs to the loft are similarly marked.
J. No congregational singing is allowed at this time.
K. To facilitate social distancing, please park in the open parking spaces (every other space is closed). We know that each family has developed its own guidelines for their family based on their needs.
While on our property, we appreciate everyone’s cooperation in following these precautions to keep our community safe. Please know these guidelines may be stricter than mandated. Our priority is your health.
The Zoom worship will continue at 9:30 a.m. until the weather is conducive to return to the parking lot. The on-line worship will be new every week and can be accessed from our web page.
Please continue to keep the Home Safe Team and our worship teams and services in your prayers. We thank you for your patience and your flexibility.
