Outdoor Drive-in Worship Guidelines

 

July 22, 2020

 

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

 

Church Council and staff are glad to let you know that beginning this Saturday, July 25, at 7 p.m., we will be offering worship in the church parking lot. (In your car, tuned to our FM frequency on the radio!) We thank New Hanover Lutheran Church for their guidance and experience as we prepared.

 

THIS SERVICE WILL REPLACE SUNDAY AM WORSHIP IN HORN HALL. HOWEVER, IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER ON A SATURDAY EVENING – WE WILL WORSHIP IN HORN HALL THE NEXT MORNING … and will need you to call or text Pastor Kay at 267-978-2798 to reserve a spot if we are in Horn Hall.

 

If you are able, please print out or download your bulletin to use. A limited number will be available.

 

WE WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE A WEEKLY WORSHIP VIDEO.

 

Guidelines for parking lot worship to follow.

 

SET-UP

Vehicles will enter from Cedar Street (between the law offices and the funeral home). Please follow the guidance of our parking volunteer, and exit Price Street when we are finished. You will park facing the building. We anticipate space for 20-25 cars, and overflow may park and still listen from High Street or Rambler Ave.

 

Vehicles will park every other space, with trucks, SUVs and vans on the back row. Those arriving on motorcycle, bicycle, or on foot must wear a mask at all times and keep 6 feet distance from others.

 

DURING WORSHIP

Please stay in your car at all times and tune your radio to 107.1 FM.

 

You may join congregational singing if you roll your windows up.

 

Worship leaders will be close to the building at a distance, and Pastor Kay will be masked this first week as an added precaution.

 

Each person in your car should have a mask available in case you need to exit for safety reasons. If you need assistance, please signal us by turning on your emergency flashers.

 

There will not be access to the building or restrooms for this 25-minute service.

 

OTHER DETAILS

Jumper cables will be available after worship, if needed.

 

Bring your own bread and wine/grape juice for communion, as none will be distributed.

 

Offering will be received in a big blue tub (driver's side) as you exit on the Price Street side.

 

As always, if you have questions, contact Pastor Kay at 267-978-2798, or a council member.

 

Stay well, and keep the faith!

 

Pastor Kay
