Outline for Ministries – Current COVID Guidelines for Edenton Street UMC
We anticipate that worship will remain virtual for the foreseeable future due to continued health and safety limitations on large gatherings. Of necessity, much about our existing church ministries will be different when we first are able to come together as a body of believers in smaller groups. Engaging together will be a small first step toward restoring all the many gatherings and activities of ESUMC. Though different and perhaps even awkward, it is our hope that the joy of learning and fellowshipping together will overshadow any awkwardness. Health and safety will need to be the priorities, but the restrictions required initially and for a time will be a small price to pay to be able to gather once more in these sacred and holy spaces. We are beginning to address the protocols that will need to be in place once the decision is made to offer on-site worship.
At this time, our recommendations below are based on our (ESUMC leadership team and Re-entry Task Force) comfort level to bring a small group of people to gather. Our approach is to “walk, then run” and keep congregational care & safety as our priority. As a team, we plan to assess the below guidelines on a monthly basis based on the progress of the state/city re-entry phases, as well as feedback from the church leadership teams and the re-entry task force.
