We are headed back inside for worship!! Please read this entire post to familiarize yourself with our plan for Worship at Prince of Peace for the month of October.
Communal worship has always been a vital part of our faith. The realities of COVID-19 have been disruptive to every part of our lives, including our life together at Prince of Peace. As we move back inside for worship we want to do so as responsibly as possible. This includes self governance. If you feel ill, have been exposed, have recently tested positive (10 days), or are at a high risk please enjoy the video feed of worship. We want to protect you and one another.
9:15am Contemporary | 11:15 Traditional
All Services will continue to be streamed live. Our 9:15 service can be viewed live here. The traditional worship will continue to be streamed via Facebook and posted to the website following worship.
- Seating will be set up to maintain social distancing allowing for families and those who have clustered together to be seated within the same group
- Masks will be REQUIRED while inside the building
- We want to still encourage the fellowship time that takes place before and after worship, but we will encourage these conversations to take place outside
- Cleaning and sanitizing our facility remains a high priority. This will continue between our worship services. Hand sanitizer, as well as masks for those who forget theirs, will be available
- The nursery will not be available
- We encourage wisdom when greeting one another. Please limit handshakes and hugs
- On the Sunday’s that we have communion, we will continue to use the pre-packaged units
- Offerings will be collected in a basket, instead of passing baskets through the aisles
In these interesting times, it is important that we maintain a mutual level of respect for one another. This is a permission giving document. If you are uncomfortable coming inside for worship, we celebrate this decision for you and your family. You remain a vital part of our fellowship and we look ahead to the day when we can all be reunited. Equally, it is apparent that some have more strictly followed the social distancing protocols. As we continue forward together, we do so respecting one another and valuing the decisions that each have made during these days. Finally, our hybrid approach for worship in October seeks to provide a worship plan that encompasses as many of the needs of our people as possible. Please, refrain from judging one another in these difficult times.
