Where progressive theology meets traditional worship.
Please join us for Live Stream Worship
With an abundance of love and care for the health and safety of every individual during the current COVID-19 outbreak, it remains prudent for Plymouth to continue a guarded approach to gatherings of the membership. Your support and understanding during this time of transition is deeply appreciated. Live Stream Worship will continue each Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Beginning Sunday June 6th, Plymouth Congregational Church will continue returning to many of our normal ways of functioning. Below are the guidelines that will be followed. Services will continue to be streamed online for those who do not wish to or are unable to attend. The Reopening Plan Guidelines will be discussed and reevaluated at the monthly Cabinet meetings. We have been following many of the CDC guidelines issued on May 16, 2021. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html
The Cabinet's recommendations have been made with thoughtful deliberation. We are endeavoring to maintain a balance between safety and the desire to return to full in-person worship and fellowship. We are on the cusp of full reopening and these recommendations are not permanent. We need to be aware that COVID variants and cases are still found in all 50 states.
Thank you for your dedication to Plymouth Church, and for your understanding of our efforts to keep everyone safe during this time of transition.
If you are feeling ill or suspect exposure to COVID-19 or its variants, please stay home.
Pews have been marked with tape to designate 38 seating areas, 32 on the main floor and 6 in the balcony. Each pew area comfortably seats 4 people (more if you have small children).
Attendees may enter through any of our entrances: north, south, and west. Ushers will be present at the entrances to assist with any questions.
Coats, scarves, gloves, hats, etc. should be kept with you.
Vaccinated attendees have the choice whether to wear masks. Masks are not required of vaccinated persons. We are open to the public if the mask requirement is followed for unvaccinated persons. Masks will be available at the entry if you do not have your own.
We are maintaining approximately 5-6 feet of social distancing between households. Pews have been marked to designate where members can sit to ensure social distancing. If different households would like to sit together, that is their choice.
Hand sanitizer will be available at the entries.
Worship bulletins and offering plates will be available at the entrances/exits.
Singing to the hymns and choral responses is okay for masked or unmasked vaccinated persons. The choir will return to in-person participation this month with a reduced number of singers.
Coffee, lemonade, and cookies will be served in Fellowship Hall after the church service. As you gather to greet one another, please keep in mind the CDC recommendations regarding social distancing and other safety measures.
The Nursery and a modified Sunday School for ages K-5 is now offered each Sunday for our children. Non-vaccinated attendants caring for the children will be masked.
Use of the church building during the week by members or outside groups began on May 10th and will continue. Groups who meet here will be given the current CDC guidelines and updated as the guidelines change. We will refrain from scheduling back-to-back or overlap use of a room by different groups.
