In-Person Services Resume in the Sanctuary

In-Person Services Resume in the Sanctuary
June Cook

Our sanctuary is now open for limited seating at the 10:30 service of Holy Eucharist.  

Services will also be broadcast live on the Christ Church Facebook page
*You do not need a Facebook account to access.*

Church COVID protocols will be in effect.  Masks must be worn throughout the service, and social distancing, where possible, maintained when entering, exiting, and approaching the altar for communion.  Chairs are arranged for social distancing; please do not move them.  A Wellness Supervisor will greet you when you arrive, ask required health questions, and direct you to your seats. 

Congregants fully vaccinated for more than two weeks before the service will be seated in the front of the sanctuary where we can accommodate 30 people.  There are seats reserved for those not fully vaccinated at the back of the church.  Because we can only seat a limited number of people, reservations are required each Sunday until further notice.  Contact June (text or phone 360-333-9311, email to make a reservation. 

To reserve a seat in the vaccination section, you must have your COVID vaccination card already on file.  Proof of vaccination will not be accepted at the door.  Send a copy of your card to June as soon as possible.  You will only have to do this once.  Photocopy your card and place in the mail drop at the parish hall or mail it to June Cook (6938 San Juan Hill Ln, Anacortes 98221).  Or, send it to her in an electronic form that is easily printable. 

Bring your own prayer book or service bulletin.  They will not be provided at the service.  Although there will be no congregational singing, Lynne will play a prelude and postlude for us.  Restroom access will be limited in accordance with COVID protocols.  Please plan accordingly.

The Altar Guild flower donation schedule is back up and running.  Notify Val Long if you’d like to honor a specific person or occasion with your floral offering.

The church will only be open for 10:30 Sunday services.  The sanctuary and the parish hall remain closed for other gatherings or meetings.  There will be no coffee hour or childcare until further notice.  

Contact June if you have questions.  Welcome back to the sanctuary!
