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.
Update on Mask Requirements
Thankfully, progress continues in fighting COVID-19. Still, we wish to be careful and maintain a safe environment for everyone. Our task force is asking everyone to continue to wear masks by all worshippers even those fully vaccinated for at least another month. Those gathered in small groups (i.e. Sunday School Classes) may remove masks IF EVERYONE IN THE GROUP IS FULLY VACCINATED. Fully vaccinated persons are those who have had at least two weeks since their final shot.
We encourage everyone to become vaccinated so that we can move closer to returning to normal gathering. Thank you for your patience. We greatly appreciate everyone’s cooperation in making CUMC a safe place for worship!
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.
It has been over a year since our halls were filled with everyone going to Sunday School on Sunday mornings…. We are ready to get back!!! There will be a few changes, but we hope you will return to studying the Bible with others. If you are looking for a class, Pastor Fawn will be available to direct you to a group. We are excited to regroup – with social distancing and masks of course!
