Below are some of the plans being implemented to make worship as safe as possible out of respect for all attending. Check the newsletter each week for updates and additional information. Our worship services are also available on Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/cumcshelby/. Note: you do not need to have a FB page in order to watch these videos. Sermons and special services will also be available for online viewing on our Latest Sermons page.
We encourage attendees to make registrations for each Sunday. This is so that we can be prepared to handle the size crowd and to expediate check-in at the door. We currently have a max capacity of 125. Those who do not make reservations will need to sign in with name, address, phone, etc. There will be separate sign ups for each Sunday.

Procedures for Entering and Exiting the Sanctuary
Final touches are being made on a protocol for social distancing, sanitizer, masks, taking temperatures, sign-in, offering, seating plan. These will be made available via church communications and a video that is being produced.
Boxes will be placed at the entrances for offerings.
Social distancing is expected in all areas including sidewalks. If persons wish to talk with others, they are invited to social distance in the Scruggs Center/Old Courthouse Square across the street. The intent is for safety and continued flow of people exiting the building.
Sunday School class that have been meeting may continue to do in the same fashion.
Full Sunday School for the rest of the age groups will not reopen after Easter (perhaps mid to late April) at a date to be determined.
The Re-Opening Team will work out details and set a date after assessing the return to in-person worship.
We ask for your patience in this transition. Worship will look and feel different as we continue to maintain a safe environment.
Also, we will continue to stream the service live online for those who do not wish to worship in person. Online streaming will become an ongoing ministry of our church as it has proven to be a vital outreach
