Methodist Temple strives to be a safe, nonjudgmental community in Jesus' name. We live out this vision by nurturing life-giving connections, practicing generous givenness, and cultivating presence to the Presence of God.
In response to the COVID-19 virus and the shut-down it created, our pastors, Pastor Andy and Pastor JillAnn, began their mid-week podcast as a way to stay in touch with our Methodist Temple family and 'keep the conversation going,' so to speak. We hope you enjoy their podcasts!
Here is the most recent information we have regarding opening up for in-person worship. Keep in mind that we will still be providing sermon videos and related content once we begin meeting together again, so no one will miss out!
At this time, we are a bit more confident that we will be able to meet June 14 for in-person worship. We are planning on two services (8:30 and 11:00 AM) to be able to maintain the recommended social distancing.
Face masks, gloves and hand sanitizer will be made available for those that wish to use them.
In an effort to help slow the spread of the virus, only the Narthex doors will open for entry on Sunday mornings (the doors labeled B and D).
Pews in the Sanctuary will be marked for social distancing. Family groups (living in same house) will be able to sit together.
No bulletins will be available; instead, we will utilize the video monitors for worship elements.
The offering plate will not be passed; instead, there will be an offering box (locked) in the Narthex for you to drop your offering.
Initially, there will be no other activities held in the building other than worship on Sunday mornings. This includes Sunday School, Children's Church & Nursery, prayer / study groups, children's / youth activities, etc. At this time, we don't have a date for when we'll be able to host other activities or events.
If you have questions regarding re-opening, please send us an email at email@example.com.
