COVID-19 SAFELY GUIDELINES
It's been close to two years since the pandemic started and the word COVID, with all its variants, has become an integral part of daily vocabulary. Flexibility, faith, hope, and love are key values needed to navigate the world today. Currently at West Side, Sunday School begins at 9:15 a.m. and worship begins at 10:30 a.m. (Call the church if you would like to join the adult Sunday school class Zoom option.) In addition, "sermon only" videos are available through links on this site and on the West Side Facebook page.
Love is a core value of the Christian faith—so it is not a surprise that the West Side Board recognized the importance of worshiping in a manner that shows love and care for the health and safety of all congregants by following thoughtful safety guidelines:
Each congregant will be asked to wear a mask to care for the health of others -- except while taking communion. Please bring your own mask if you have one. If you do not own a mask, there is a basket filled with masks right inside the front door. Feel free to help yourself.
Offering can be placed in baskets as you enter/leave the sanctuary.
Deacons or Ushers will seat you and your family in a pew that is socially distanced from other families.
Because singing can cause the virus to linger in the air, please wear a mask during congregational singing.
You'll receive a communion packet when you enter the building. Partake of communion after communion prayers.
It is wonderful to worship together! Remember, however, if you are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or its variants, please stay home. If you have health issues that make you more susceptible to the virus, we understand that you may choose to worship at home. God's love holds you close wherever you are.
Thank you for practicing extreme love for others and continuing to adapt to the rapid changes in the world. God’s wisdom shines a light on the path.
With faith, hope, and love,
Rev. Donna Gilchrist
