Distribution of Holy Communion on Sunday, August 9, 2020

You are invited by Zion Lutheran Church to sign up for “Distribution of Holy Communion” on Sunday, August 9th, from 10:45 a.m. -12:00 p.m. (with the last group entering at 11:45 p.m.).

Distribution will be “No Contact”. We have 8 tables for each time slot with a maximum of 4 people per table from the same household. Tables can be filled with an individual, a couple or family groups. If your family/household has more than four members, please sign up for more than one table. When signing up you will be required to answer “Which do you need? Wine, grape juice, bread or gluten free?”. It is of utmost importance that you inform us of what you need (wine, bread, grape juice or gluten-free wafers). You will not be able to sign up unless you include your answer in the space provided.

**If at any time you feel this procedure exceeds your safety level of comfort but you still wish to receive Holy Communion, please contact Pastor Keith.**

When arriving for Holy Communion:

            ~ Please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your reserved element setting time (we will have chairs available for those who need one).

~ Social distancing and masks are required (masks, of course, will be removed during the consumption of the elements).

~ The service will last about 5 minutes.

~ While waiting for your turn, please be sure to practice physical distancing by keeping yourself at least 6 feet away from other members of Zion (the exception being members of your immediate household).

~ An usher will greet you at the main entrance and will guide your entry.

~ Exit will be out the north (office hallway) door.

~ All doors will be open for no contact entrance and exiting.

~ Windows will be open and exhaust fans will be on for optimum ventilation.

~ All tables will be sanitized before/after each table is prepared for the next group.

~ Blessing of our young members who have not received First Communion instruction will be done from a distance of no less than 6 feet.

Obviously, safety for all is our primary concern. Patience and graciousness will be welcome as we experiment with this new form of worship. As always, if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns please send an email to: zion@newbc.rr.com or call Zion’s office.
