New Worship Procedures
Based on new State and VA Conference guidelines, and the recommendations of our Post-COVID Reentry Group,
STARTING IMMEDIATELY we will:
PLEASE SEE PASTOR DAVID IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT THESE PROCEDURES.
If you haven't returned for in-person worship yet, there is still plenty of space to allow for social distancing. You just need to wear a mask and pre-register. You can pre-register at evc.vaumc.org, or fill out a form in the office, or fill one out at the door. We will continue to stream the service via Zoom at https://zoom.us/j/679224800 with passcode 804. We want to thank Dennis Morgan for his continued support of our Worship Services.
We will continue with the 10 am start time until we get to Phase 3. We will also continue to stream the service live via Zoom and post a recording of the service on Facebook & our website for those that can't attend. We hope to see as many of you as possible but truly understand that everyone needs to make their own risk decisions. We will do everything we can to make it a safe event for everyone. If you want to attend you must fill out a health acknowledgement form which is your pre-registration to attend. You can fill the form out up to a week ahead of time, but we ask that you complete is by Saturday at the latest. Everyone attending, including children must have completed the form so it can be reviewed by Pastor David. It is a simple one-page form and once you complete it online you can immediately complete a new form for another family member. Please go to http://www.evc.vaumc.org/home/ and you will see a yellow button to go to the COVID Health Form. Select Elizabeth River District, then Select Memorial, then fill out the form, and when you finish it, it will only be seen by Pastor David since it contains personal health questions. You can also stop by the church office during the week, fill out a form, seal it in an envelope, and we will pass it on to Pastor David when he arrives to conduct our service. Hope to see you Sunday. God Bless.
Offering and Tithes
Please bring your offerings to our in-person worship, or mail your tithes and offerings to the church, or you can drop them off with Christina Monday - Friday from 9:30am - 12:30pm.
While we are not authorized to have a full choir yet, there are provisions for up to four people to lead the congregation in song. To plan out how we can best accomplish this, there will be a meeting for any current and/or former choir members, plus anyone else interested in our Music Ministry on Wednesday, May 26th at 7pm in the Choir Room. Our new Music Director, Kim Chafee, and our Organist, Ruth Eiffert, will lead this planning meeting. There will not be a monthly Bible video session that evening so that we can have Zoom available for those that want to participate, but cannot attend the in-person meeting.
VIDEO SERMON SERIES
Our video series, "Teach Us to Pray" By Ranjit David, will continue this Wednesday from 7-7:30pm using the Worship
Zoom link. We hope you can join us.
