St. Paul's COVID-19 Response

To show our care and concern for the health and safety of our members and community, we continue to follow recommended guidelines for masking, social distancing, and sanitizing.

Social distancing, masking, and pre-registration for worship are optional for those that are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final dose). However, we recommend that all people wear masks in worship regardless of vaccination status due to the number of COVID-19 cases in the community.  We will still reserve a portion of the sanctuary for socially distant, masked seating for those that need or want it. Online worship will also continue. We kindly ask that you pre-register for socially distant seating so that we know how much space to reserve. Click the button below to pre-register.

We are also pleased to announce that Holy Communion has returned to worship! The signup for socially distant communion liturgies has been discontinued. Please contact Pastor Adam or the church office if you would like to receive communion but are unable to attend worship.

Socially-distanced Worship Registration

 


 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Taking precautions and being flexible is a way to serve the Lord and help keep everyone safe! For more info read the guidelines below.

COVID-19 Guidelines for Worship at St. Paul's

  • If showing any symptoms, please stay home.
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please stay home until released from quarantine.
  • If you have been requested to quarantine for any reason, please stay home until released from quarantine.
  • It is strongly recommended that all people wear masks in the building, regardless of vaccination status, due to the number of COVID-19 cases in the community.
  • Masks, social distancing, and pre-registration are optional for those that are fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final dose). Per NYS and CDC guidance, those not fully vaccinated are requested to wear a mask in the building and stay 6 feet from those outside their household. We will be relying on the integrity of the St. Paul's community to follow this guidance.
  • Socially distanced, masked seating will be available for those that need or want it. We kindly ask that you pre-register so that we know how much space to reserve.
  • Kindly follow the directions of the ushers when entering and exiting the worship space.
  • Hand sanitizer is available for use upon entry into the building.
  • High touch surfaces (including pews) are regularly cleaned by our custodial staff.
  • Coffee hour refreshments are being offered "grab and go" style.
  • There will be no paper bulletins, passing of the offering plate, or common cup at communion.

As in all cases of public interaction during the pandemic, each worshipper is responsible for assessing their own level of comfort with the possibility, however remote, of exposure to the coronavirus. If for any reason (age, health concerns, etc.) you do not feel comfortable attending in-person worship, please stay home. Online worship continues to be available.
