COVID Protocol Changes For Redeemer

In view of the CDC’s recent counsel and the ending of the facemask mandate from the Lancaster County Health Department, please note the following changes concerning our COVID protocol.

Registration for worship will cease after May 23/24. However, we still ask all worshippers to complete and return an attendance card.

Ropes on the pews in the main nave will be removed. Worshippers should observe common sense distancing. Ropes will remain for the time being in the west wing. Those who feel more comfortable with every other pew being roped off are invited to sit in the wing. Overflow seating remains in the Fellowship Hall.

Masks are no longer required, but still recommended for those who have not received their vaccinations. Anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask should feel free to do so.

Balcony seating is unavailable at this time.

Greeting fellow worshippers during the announcements will resume.

Sanitizing of pews on Sunday after the 8:30AM service will take place only for the pews in the wing. The entire church will be sanitized once a week on Thursdays.

Three entrances (the two in the main narthex and the one in the west wing) will be open and available for entering or exiting the church on Sundays. Due to security concerns, the doors in the west wing will be available only for exiting the church on Saturday evenings.)

Offering boxes will be available in each narthex, along with boxes containing attendance cards, bulletins, etc., and hand sanitizer.

Communion distribution will be by the continuous style for the present time.

Ushering out will start from the back of the church in both the main nave and the west wing.

Questions? If you have any questions, please direct them to your elder or one of the Pastors. Thank you!
