LIVE SERVICES AT NORTHMINSTER

Our move to in-person indoor worship this Sunday is a joyful move for us, and we hope to see as many of you who can or feel so called to join us. We hope we’ve worked out the kinks in the LiveStream system for those of you who for whatever reason are not able to be with us in person.

There are a few things to note regarding Sunday’s service:

  1. The worship service will begin at 9:45 through the summer. To reduce the amount of time folks are in the worship space (one of recommendations still made by the University of Colorado at Boulder droplet studies), we encourage folks to gather outside shortly before 9:40 when the doors will be opened to the sanctuary. The LiveStream will begin at 9:45. For these first few Sundays at least, folks will continue to be seated during the Prelude and will be encouraged to begin leaving when the Postlude begins.
  2. Those who need to use the elevator are encouraged to start arriving any time after 9:15 and to gather in the library until the sanctuary is open.
  3. Social distancing is recommended, and seating will be in every other pew. For now, masks should be worn throughout the service, whether or not you have been vaccinated. Worship leaders will unmask to speak or sing, but remask when not leading worship. Masks will be provided for those who arrive without them.
  4. Bulletins will be spread out on three tables in the narthex, in the library, and at the office entrance.
  5. Please pardon our mess in the Tower Gallery space. The pews that were removed from St. Andrew Chapel to begin the renovations there are stored in that space temporarily. (Pews are still yours for the taking! Contact Mark ([email protected]) or Pastor Michael.)
  6. The pastors will greet worshipers outside on the Tower Plaza rather than in the Narthex. Social hour after worship will not be in Logan Hall, but outside on the lawn, weather permitting. (Some chairs will be provided). For the first Sunday at least, no refreshments will be provided, but we hope that will change as we move deeper into the summer.
  7. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Michael.

We hope that updates in the recommendations from the U of C Boulder study over the summer will provide greater comfort for a lessening of these few remaining restrictions.

We ask for patience from everyone as we take these steps towards being together again for worship as we issue a heartfelt and grateful “Welcome Home!” whether you are joining us in person or on the LiveStream.
