ALPLAUS UNITED METHODIST CHURCH We Know GOD Can Be Found Anywhere, But We Feel Closer Here
1 Brookside Place, Alplaus, New York 12008
We Are Open For Public Worship!! Once we are back open with full activities, then we will be including a full calendar. Its been great seeing those of you that have been able to make it to worship in person. Hope we get a vaccine for this virus soon, so we can all get together again. Please be aware that we will be following the guidelines set out by NYS, the CDC and the UNYAC. Our building will only be open for worship - we will still be having meetings via zoom or outside. We will be “open” at about 25% capacity - up to 28 individual people. All people count, regardless of how many are from 1 household or what their age or size is. We will be checking temps, you will be asked about your personal health, attendance will be taken and logs kept. The kitchen door will be for emergency exit only. The building will be clean and ready for your arrival. Folks will need to wear masks, and areas are marked off for keeping appropriate distance. There will be masks and hand sanitizer available. We will have an Usher who is familiar with the seating and spacing requirements and you will be directed where to sit (it might not be “your spot”). Foot traffic will be guided to be mindful of proper spacing upon entry and exit. The greeter and the Usher will coordinate with the Attendance Taker to assist folks with the use of the elevator. The only areas of the building open to the public will be the Sanctuary and the restrooms. The restrooms will have cleaning supplies at hand for use upon entry and exit. That covers what you might expect - here is a list of what will be absent… Passing of the Peace Coffee Hour Singing Offertory and Doxology (there will be a plate for offerings on the way in/out) Microphone passing for joys and concerns (please call, Email or text in advance) Bulletin Hymnals and Bibles (in pews) We will record the service and post it on the website/ FaceBook for those who are unable to attend in person. If you have further questions, please reach out and ask! Currently Pastor Kristi's office hours continue to be at home rather than church, Monday through Friday 9am - 12pm. Pastor Kristi’s mobile number: 838-200-8601; home phone 518-399-0497 and email firstname.lastname@example.org
