We are excited to share with you that we will be offering “in-person” worship Sunday, August 2nd at The Village Green. Due to the continued heat, we have decided to begin worship earlier at 9:30 a.m. Jackie Livesay will be sharing hymns on her violin and Pastor Fleischer will be portraying our featured apostle, Matthew, based on his call story from Matthew 9:9-13.
Since our previous congregational correspondence, the Virginia Conference has streamlined the process and you will simply be asked to answer a few questions regarding your health when you arrive for worship. Upon arrival please check in with our greeters, Carter & Jan Mattox, who will be assisting with this process. In keeping with the guidelines set forth by the Virginia Conference, we will be observing the following precautions:
- Face coverings must be put on before you leave your vehicle and kept on until you are back in your vehicle.
- When leaving your vehicle, please abide by physical social distancing(remain 6 feet or more away from others).
- Each person must bring their own chair.
- There will be no paper bulletins, hymnbooks, or congregational singing.
In-person worship will not replace our online presence. Worship will continue to be offered each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. on our church Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NewportMtOlivetUnitedMethodistChurch.
