Status of In-Person Worship

As of September 21, the Ministry Oversight team is requiring that everyone (vaccinated or not) wear a mask when attending our in-person Sunday morning worship services at Pilgrim Church.  Singing is permitted during worship, but please sing quietly.

In addition, our practice of safe distancing in the sanctuary, hallway, and Fellowship Hall is being reinstated. This is regrettable; however, with the increased transmission of the delta COVID variant, we are trying to keep in-person worship alive while keeping everyone as safe as possible.

It is wonderful to see the church community gather in person again! At the same time, we want to be sure that everyone is able to participate over Zoom while others worship in-person, as we know there are those who prefer not to gather due to the virus, because they are far away, or simply because they enjoy a virtual service. The Zoom service is being “simulcast” during the live worship. See our “Worship With Us” page for details.

We are also revising our protocols for how we safely worship in person, and those will be updated and posted shortly. We do anticipate that our revised protocols will still require face coverings/masks for any unvaccinated individuals; hand sanitizing; and requiring anyone with new cold-like symptoms to stay home.

This post will be updated as necessary to reflect our latest practices in dealing with ongoing health issues.

Please contact Kathy in the church office for any questions.
