COVID Restrictions Update

COVID Restrictions Update

As our community has continued to make great progress towards controlling the spread of COVID, the leadership of the church has moved us into the final phase of our re-opening procedures.
UUMC will begin taking the following steps until further notice.
Worship Services 

  • All Sunday morning in-person worship services will continue inside for the summer season
    • 8:30am & 11am in the sanctuary
    • 9:45am in the Fellowship Hall
  • Sunday morning coffee will continue to be available either inside or outside, depending on the weather.
  • Hymnals, Bibles, prayer cards, & other materials will return to the pew backs.
  • Sign-in will continue to be available before you enter the Sanctuary and Offering will continue to be collected via the offering boxes located at the Sanctuary doors or online. 
  • Online services will continue as planned on YouTube, Facebook & the church website. Traditional services are on a one-week delay. Journey Praise Service is live each week.  

Weekday Small Groups & Committee Meetings 

  • All Outside groups (i.e.  AA, Al-Anon, etc) are allowed to resume meetings at the church. All such groups must adhere to all Covid safe practices that are currently in place at the time of their meeting (i.e face masks for those still unvaccinated, social distancing, etc.).  All outside groups must submit new space reservation forms to the church office with current contact information for approval before they will be put on the calendar and assigned a space.
  • All requests for meeting spaces must be communicated to (preferably in writing), and approved by the church office to make sure there is spaces available for all those who need it.
  • All UUMC affiliated Committee & small group meetings are welcome to continue to meet inside the church building or outside as long as a meeting space/area with adequate capacity is available at that time.  
  • Meetings/gatherings can occur outside of normal office hours as long as all members continue to follow whatever Covid safe practices are currently in place at the time of their meeting (i.e face masks for those still unvaccinated, social distancing, etc.)
  • Food and drink service is allowed. However, should a group need to use any of the church kitchens to prepare food or drink services at their gathering there must be someone on site that has a current food handler certification.

Ministry Programs & Special Events

  • All ministry programs & special events are allowed to resume operation as “normal” as long as all Covid safe practices that are currently in place at the time (i.e face masks for those still unvaccinated, social distancing, etc.) are being followed.
  • Food and drink service at any event/program is allowed. However, any group that needs to use any of the church facilities to prepare food or drink for their program/event must have someone on site that has a current food handler certification.
  • All program/event requests must be communicated to (preferably in writing), and approved by the church office to make sure there is space and resources available.
