Indoor, in-person worship will resume at Winnetka Presbyterian Church on Sunday, June 6th, at 10:00 a.m.
Worship will initially be in the CLC, which has a new air filtration system, better air flow from open windows and doors, and seating which will be arranged for appropriate physical distancing. We are excited to welcome you back into the building. While together, we will continue to show our love for one another by wearing masks and by asking people to respect physical distancing guidelines.
It has been wonderful to worship together outdoors for Easter and the first Sunday of May. Now we look forward to worshiping together in the CLC. As God has led us to new ways of being the church in the world during this pandemic, so God will lead us into new ways of worshiping together which remain true and faithful to the tenets of reformed worship while keeping us safe in doing so.
Children will be present for the entire service – we anticipate, at least at first, that the services will be shorter in nature. An abridged Sunday School time will be provided following the service. A time of fellowship/coffee hour will be outside.
Worship will be “live-streamed,” recorded, and posted to our church website and on social media platforms. With the start of in-person, indoor services we will no longer pre-record video services. Live streaming will enable our members and friends who either cannot come to worship or who choose not to, to remain connected with us for worship and enables us to maintain an on-line social media presence.
All our staff members are fully vaccinated. We suspect that is true for much of the congregation, as well. We will be sending out a vaccination survey late in May, to be filled out anonymously, to give us accurate data as to what percentage of the congregation is vaccinated.
In this Sunday’s gospel lesson, Jesus tells his disciples that we are to love one another as Christ has loved us. He tells us this so that “my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.”
What a joy it will be to be back together every Sunday for in-person worship beginning on Sunday, June 6th.
In Christ’s Peace, Paul
