In-Person Worship at Peace
Based on the expertise of health professionals, government officials and others, we offer in-person worship with safety and social distancing measures in place. With adherence to safety protocols based on our sanctuary’s seating capacity, we can still accommodate over 100 people at every service (6:30pm Saturdays, and 9am and 11:15am Sundays), and we offer socially distanced seating in the gym for any overflow needs.
Safety and Social Distancing
First and foremost: Please do not attend if you do not feel well or have been around someone who is sick. Please wash and sanitize your hands prior to arriving. Masks are required for attendance, and must be worn throughout the entire service. Social distancing markers throughout the Adams Campus and in the sanctuary help us maintain safe distances from one another.
COVID-19 and Peace
We at Peace have been blessed with advice and consultation from our own member Thad Wolfram, an invaluable resource on infectious diseases. Thad holds an MS in Medical Microbiology and Respiratory Infections and currently serves as Executive Director at PPD, a leading global contract research organization providing comprehensive, integrated drug development, laboratory and lifecycle management services. He has prepared this video for Peace members about how COVID-19 affects our return to worship at Peace.
While You’re Here…
Please come with joy and excitement, but also with love and concern for your neighbor. Doors open 15 minutes prior to service start. Please avoid congregating anywhere on our Adams Campus, and follow social distancing as marked throughout the campus. Enter and exit the main doors off Adams Avenue.
Sit only in pews that are clearly marked as open; only members of the same household may disregard seat markers in order to sit together. Please refrain from any personal contact (hugs, handshakes, etc.).
Communion is offered at drive-thru events (on fourth Sundays) as well as in worship, using prepackaged elements, on the second and fourth weekends of the month. Offering plates are not passed; please drop your offering in the plates at the door on your way out after service, use offering slots on the walls at sanctuary entrances and/or continue to utilize online giving.
Children must remain with parents/guardians during the service. No Sunday Bible Club or child care/nursery is offered as of now, and kids remain seated in pews during the children’s message.
Please reserve use of the gymnasium bathrooms for emergencies only; drinking fountains are unavailable. All non-worship areas of the building remain closed as of now.
Live-streamed worship services are an increasingly important and fast-growing ministry at Peace. We live-stream our 9am and 11:15am Sunday services on our Watch page.
Just as we offered live-streamed services before the pandemic, we continue to offer our services online even as in-person worship resumes. We sincerely want you to worship where you feel safest and most comfortable. No one should feel guilty about not being ready to return in person at this time. If you are worried about returning right now, take your time and worship with us from your home until you feel ready.
