When will we worship inside the building?
Weekly beginning Sunday, June 28th, 9am & 10:30am
Will there be requirements for the June 28th indoor service?
- Please social distance. Sanctuary chairs are spaced apart, but larger families may combine smaller chair pods so everyone in the family can sit together.
- Masks are required. (Children 10+ are required to also wear masks). The mask should cover both your nose and mouth. If you need a "break" from your mask, please feel free to take a walk outside and then come back in the building.
- Watch our “You are Invited” video for information on entrances, exits, and the arrangement of the sanctuary. There will be clearly marked entrance and exit doorways.
- If you are over 65 or have an underlying medical condition that would make you particularly vulnerable to the virus, we encourage you to attend our 9 AM service.
Will the Live Stream still be available once we begin indoor public worship?
Yes, we will continue the Sunday 10:30am live stream indefinitely.
What about outdoor services?
We had outdoor services on June 7, 14 & 21. We don't have anymore outdoor services planned.
How often will we clean?
We will do a thorough cleaning before the 9am Sunday service. We will also have our cleaning company come in to disinfect the seats, clean the bathrooms and wipe down high touch surfaces at 10am each week, prior to the 10:30 am service. They will clean again following the 10:30am service.
What about kids/youth?
For the time-being, there will be no nursery provided at our services. If your children can practice the guidelines we've requested, they are welcome to attend indoor services. The children's and youth ministries are prayerfully examining the best steps to take in reinstating in-person meetings with children and youth.
When will we be able to celebrate the Lord’s Supper?
Currently, we do not have a date chosen on which to serve communion. WEPC's leadership will decide on a date and will communicate that to the congregation.
What if someone who attends a worship service subsequently tests positive for COVID-19?
In the event that an attender of a worship service tests positive for COVID-19, WEPC will contact the Virginia Department of Health and follow the advised protocols for notifying attenders who may have been exposed to the virus.
