St. John's will be adding In Person worship starting the weekend of July 25/26.  Please read below for all the safety details as well as the addition of a new worship service on Saturday Evening.  If you are not able to adhere to the expectations or are unwilling, we ask that you stay home and worship online.

 

In consultation with the ELCA, South Carolina Synod, CDC guidelines, the survey that was done for St. John's and medical professionals, the following is recommended for one to worship at St. John’s Lutheran Church. 


IF YOU ARE UNWILLING OR UNABLE TO FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES BELOW, PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF OTHERS, DO NOT COME.

  • Everyone will enter at the same entrance, spaced 6 feet apart.
  • As everyone enters, they will be screened by volunteers from the Health Ministry Team. Temperatures will be taken, and a few simple questions will be asked. All people are required to wear a mask, one will be provided to you if you did not bring one.
  • Seating will be spaced 6 ft apart, please sit only with those who you have been living with. Worship Services will be different. There will be NO corporate singing and offering will be placed in a collection box as you enter or exit. Communion will NOT be offered at this time.
  • Bathrooms will be open, but please only use in an emergency.
  • If you are feeling ill, have underlying health conditions, are at risk, are still unsure about in person worship being safe, have been in contact (withing the past 2 weeks) with someone who has tested positive or are around others who are vulnerable, we ask that you please stay home and worship online.
  • We will NOT be utilizing online sign-ups at this point. We hope to have enough seating for those who come. If we reach capacity, we will ask people to return home and re-evaluate for the following week.

 

As we move forward, we will be making adjustments weekly regarding how our worship services take place. All of this is very fluid and we ask your patience as we are trying to do the best we can.
