When Can We Return to Worship at Saint Barnabas?
Updated October 6, 2020
You are invited to begin signing up for worship. Click below to sign up.
Sign up?? Yes!
As we will be worshipping in small groups of 50 people or fewer, and want to be able to do effective contact tracing should the need arise, we will take signups for each week’s services. We’ve expanded our service offerings to provide Eucharist each week at these (somewhat different!) times:
10:45am (in the Music Center)
While it will be different than it was before, we will still be overjoyed to return. All of us will agree to a Covenant of Care that will help us love each other well when we’re sharing space:
THE SAINT BARNABAS COVENANT OF CARE
To love and serve my neighbor at Saint Barnabas, I will:
shortness of breath
bruising or bleeding
new joint pain that is not going away
lack of sense of smell/taste
