Sunday, October 31, marks our return to gathering in our sanctuary for services. We will require masks, social distancing, and vaccination for all who attend. The Phoenix Ensemble will sing, but congregational singing will be limited to Circle Round at the end of the service (let’s plan not to hold hands except within families). There will be no food or gathering after the service.
The sanctuary is set up with chairs and pews for individuals/couples/family groups to select as they see fit. Depending on how many are sitting in groups, we’ll have space for 50-100 in the sanctuary, and we’ll have overflow seating in the social hall where the live-streamed service will be shown on a large TV.
Streaming on Zoom will continue for those not yet ready to meet face-to-face.
Many other gatherings, meetings, classes, and other activities continue on Zoom. Some small groups do meet face-to-face. Check individual announcements for specific connection details.
Under normal circumstances, we would offer diverse activities throughout the week such as meditation, concert, social justice events, guest speakers, and community dinners. These will resume when that is possible.
