Sunday Morning Worship in the Sanctuary
We are excited to welcome people back into the sanctuary for worship. We have 75 reserved spots available for worship in the sanctuary. We will follow the guidance for safety of the Minnesota Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and our COVID advisory team at Zumbro.
We understand not everyone will feel comfortable returning to in-person worship at this time. We will welcome your return to the sanctuary when you are ready. We will continue livestreaming worship online and make it available on our website every week, while also transitioning to welcome you back into the building for onsite worship.
Wednesday Night Worship in the Sanctuary
Wednesday nights join us in the sanctuary. Come masked, feeling good, and ready for the Wednesday Worship Band to lead us in worship. Communion will be celebrated each week.
During indoor worship, we will follow the same safety protocols as Sunday worship, including registration in advance of worship. Summer Wednesday worship will be followed each week by ice cream outside (when weather permits).
·Worship registration will be required as we manage space and physical distancing. If you do not have access to register online, you may call 507-288-2649 to reserve your spot.
· If you have had a chance to worship once, please wait a day or more to register again to give others who have not yet worshiped in person an opportunity. Check back later to see if space is available.
· Worship is currently capped at 75 worshipers. This number will not include staff and musicians responsible for leading worship. Total capacity of worship may reach 100 people per service.
The new elevator is available inside the front door on the left side.
· We will continue to assess the demand for in-person worship and consider adding a second service on Sundays at 10:30am.
