RiG Phase 2 In-Person Worship
RiG 2 Changes: Effective Sunday, August 15, the following changes will be implemented. Thank you for adhering to these changes.
- Delta Variant. We have been watching the Muscatine County COVID numbers. Unfortunately, we are a high-risk county right now (along with most of Iowa). We are requesting that members (both vaccinated and unvaccinated) start wearing masks again to church, beginning this Sunday. “As long as Muscatine County remains at high risk, and per CDC guidelines, we feel it would be wise to return to wearing masks. We feel it is a plus that we are going to go back to singing with masks on. When guidelines change, we will be more than happy to go back to no masks for vaccinated people.”
- Singing – has been approved as long as members are wearing masks.
- Communion kits will be handed out as members go into the pews. Then everyone can take communion at the same time. Waste baskets will be provided for members to drop the communion kit into on their way out of the pews.
- Effective Sunday, September 5, the following change will be implemented regarding at home communion. After the Words of Institution, the Pastor will invite all to receive communion with the following words: “The Body of Christ broken for you, the Blood of Christ shed for you.” The Minister of Music will play a short piece of communion music while the Congregation receives communion. Zoom participants may use whatever beverage and cracker or wafer they would like to use to partake in communion. If you have any questions about this change, please call the church office.
