Here is some information on how to worship with us from home during this virus outbreak.
The best place for announcements is www.facebook.com/somersetgrace. You do NOT need a Facebook account to access our church facebook page.
The Board voted to relax SOME of our precautions, starting September 27. At that point, we will still ask that you wear a face covering upon entering the building, but the covering may be removed AFTER being seated at least 6 feet away from those with whom you do not live. We will continue to reserve one section of pews for those who for any reason are more vulnerable, and will ask that anyone who sits on the left side of the sanctuary continue to wear their mask while seated for that purpose.
After reading the latest literature, we will begin to introduce congregational singing back to our worship service. We will continue to limit the amount of singing out of an abundance of caution, but the newest research is suggesting that singing (if not done loudly) carries the same risk as talking. So, on September 27, be ready to sing (just not too loudly!).
We plan to resume junior church for our children (thru 6th grade) during our 10:30 Sunday services, starting October 4. When the weather cooperates, the children will be in the pavilion.
Our top priority is your safety. The Board and the pastor long to be "back to normal." On the other hand, we will follow guidelines suggested by our denomination and our insurance company. It may well be that we need to go back to mandatory masks and no singing, and if we receive such direction from authorities, we will do it. We ask for patience and grace as we walk together as a church family, caring for one another along the way.
