All of the conversation about illness on the news has prompted leaders at WCUC to consider what common sense precautions we might take to improve the safety of the most vulnerable among us as we gather together. Here are some basic tips we hope you will follow here and wherever you go in our communities:
- If you’re sick, please stay at home! We appreciate your efforts to keep the rest of us well. Please let us know you’re sick so that we can stay connected and pray for you.
- We encourage you to block all coughs or sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
- Wash your hands frequently — there are sinks in each bathroom and in the North Hall, Parlor, and Chancel kitchens.
- Avoid touching your face.
As for our church policies, we are trying new ways of passing the peace, sharing communion, collecting the offering, and providing snacks, to minimize the spread of illness.
If at any point it becomes dangerous to meet together, we will do our best to keep in touch through phone and internet, providing resources for worship and social connection, and monitoring the needs of our congregation.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please be in touch with Pastor Hannah or head of Worship & Welcome, Ruth Sedlock. Thank you!
