Dear Sisters and Brothers
In keeping with the state and federal health and safety guidelines, we are updating our approach to our worship service and Sunday morning/Wednesday night Bible studies.
Starting Sunday, June 6 at 9:30 a.m. we will again offer classes for all ages at the building, with in-person Wednesday evening bible classes resuming June 9 at 7:30 p.m. Our teachers have put a lot of time and effort into creating a productive and safe learning environment, and we hope to see everyone there.
In addition to our classes, our Sunday morning worship service will be revised, as well.
Beginning this Sunday, in most of the auditorium, we will resume regular seating practices. We will no longer block every other row of seats, will resume passing the emblems for the Lord's Supper and the collection tray, and we will return to a full song service.
However, our desire is for everyone to feel as comfortable as possible during this time of transition. With that in mind, we will reserve the back two rows of our auditorium for those who wish to continue practicing social distancing. We will also hold an additional row empty to provide separation between this section and others in the auditorium. Although we will resume passing emblems and trays, prepackaged Lord's Supper emblems will remain available for those who are uncomfortable passing items.
And while there is no longer a mask mandate, anyone who is more comfortable wearing a mask should feel free to continue to do so.
We are thankful to our God that this congregation has come safely through the pandemic. And we appreciate so much the support we have received from the Dulles family as we tried to navigate the shifting circumstances of the last year in a way that was pleasing to God.
We hope to see everyone at the building Sunday at 9:30. If there is anything holding you back from attending in person, please contact one of us so we can discuss your situation.
In His Love,
Tip and Craig
