Update on Indoor Church Services at Mancelona UMC

 

Here is what you can expect when you arrive on Sunday:

Masks and social distancing are encouraged  for the indoor service. 

 

While we are excited about our ability to worship together once again, we must all take the precautions necessary to ensure that we are doing our part to keep one another as healthy as possible, doing all we can to reduce the risk of being exposed to COVID-19.

 

 While studies are still unsure about how singing affects the radius of potential contact, we will be foregoing congregational singing for the time being. However, we are going to try and do all that we can to ensure that there will be music of some kind offered during the service, either played over the speaker or soloists.

 

 Worship services will be limited to 30-45 minutes in length.

  

 You are welcome to come and sit in your car as an alternative option. See below for FM option.

 

 If you are still unsure or uncomfortable gathering together, no worries! We will still be offering online worship through the church Facebook page, YouTube, and the Church website. See details below.

 

 

You Tube: The service will be also be available on our own YouTube channel! This channel will allow anyone who so desires (and isn’t already on Facebook) to watch the weekly messages from home or wherever they connect to the internet.
