In Person Worship!

We welcomed all into our sanctuary last Sunday for the first time since March 2020.  We were so glad to be gathered back together. The hallmarks of our re-gathering will be kindness and consideration.  Be aware and understanding of the fact that people will have different comfort levels around personal space, and touch.

Information about returning to Worship In Person

Of course, because of heightened health concerns, even as we emerge from so many restrictions, there are some practices that have changed.

* If you are fully vaccinated, masks are optional.  We are trusting that everyone will be forthcoming about this for the good and health of the community. As we learned on our opening Sunday, there may be occasions when we request that people wear masks.  You can bring your own or we will have some here.

* In an abundance of caution, we are taking contact names and numbers ;

* Please note the changes at the Peace:

As we emerge from the pandemic, we are aware that some practices need to change.  We suggest that you greet one another with your hands together and make a slight bow, thus acknowledging the offering of peace and respecting differences in comfort level around personal space. We honor the practice of “namaste” which means, literally “greeting” and is often understood to mean “the divine in me meets the divine in you”. When we offer each other “the peace” we are offering the “shalom” of God, and acknowledging that each of us, no matter how different, is made in the image of God.

* We will receive the bread of communion only.

If you are unable to be present with us in the building today, and would like to receive the bread of communion,  please signify this by leaving a message at the parish office, by phone (207) 443-3792 or email (pmott@gracebath.org).
