COVID Safety at Downs UMC

We are taking a great many measures to help make our church a safe place to gather.

  • Rooms are regularly cleaned between each use, including the Sanctuary
  • Masks and Hand Sanitizer are available in the sanctuary and the building
  • We have reduced common contact areas. For example: Instead of passing the offering plate, it is now positioned on the tables in the sanctuary.
  • Our staff, volunteers and congregation members have been asked to remain home if they are experiencing any symptoms.
  • The front pews are left empty to provide the recommended distance between speakers/singers and the congregation.
  • We are working diligently to create an environment of respect and togetherness as a church:
    – We will not be asking anyone’s vaccination status
    – We are asking all to respect your neighbor’s need for social distance
    – We will continue to offer both online and in-person worship services so that you always have the ability to join us in worship.
