With the metrics in good shape, we’re finally having our first in-person service this Sunday, October 31st!
What to Expect
In line with CDC guidelines, all adults and children over 2 years are required to wear a face mask covering the nose and mouth. The Sanctuary will be set up for social distancing, air flow (windows open and fans moving the air, so please dress appropriately), and ask folks to continue practicing social distancing in the church. We will be following the UUA guidelines by not having singing during the service at this time.
Religious Education & Childcare
Our first classes will take place this Sunday. Kids aged 4-11 will meet in the big classroom on the 3rd floor, and youth aged 12+ will be in the Couch Room on the 3rd floor.
To keep our youngest safe, it was decided that we will not have childcare available at this time. The Fellowship Hall will be available for adults with children 3 years and younger who need an alternative place to listen to the service. We will have the speaker turned on in Fellowship Hall so the service can be heard. Adults will need to stay with their children if they are utilizing this space.
Unfortunately, we will not have a Coffee Hour in Fellowship Hall following the service; there will be no food or drinks served in the building. We strongly recommend folks move outside to visit with each other after the service.
We’ve set up the Sanctuary with a camera that will allow us to continue streaming over Zoom on Sunday mornings. This means things will look different if you join us on Zoom, since everyone leading the service will be present in the Sanctuary. Anyone joining us online will still be able to participate in Joys & Concerns through the chat, though Fellowship Time on Zoom following the service will no longer take place.
Thank you to everyone who chose to participate in our survey. To help everyone make informed decisions about attending in-person services, we are publishing the information we’ve gathered.
Overall Vaccination at UUCE:
In More Detail
These numbers reflect approximations of vaccination at Sunday Services, since not everyone in our community chose to participate in the survey, and visitors are welcome to our services. Still, we hope this information is helpful to everyone deciding whether or not to participate as we reopen.
We hope to see you all Sunday!
