Worship in the Woods!

Wednesday, August 12 and 26, 2020, 7:30-8:00 PM

We are excited to have scheduled two more in-person worship opportunities at our beautiful Outdoor Worship Area in the Woods behind our parking lot at the end of the cemetery.


Needed: 3 GREETERS/USHERS for each service. If you are a greeter/usher you need to arrive by 7:00 PM and be comfortable giving directions and enforcing our safety guidelines.


  1. You must preregister to attend. You must tell us exactly how many total adults and children are coming in your party. The number of attendees will be limited because of social distancing.
  2. Your party will have assigned seating.
  3. You and everyone in your party must read and agree to follow all of our protocols for Outdoor Worship Services.
  4. By registering and participating in the Outdoor Worship Service, you and your party acknowledge that you may be exposed to COVID-19 and agree to hold Emmanuel UMC harmless.
  5. Those who may attend the service will be sent a confirmation email with instructions that will include an arrival time (a ten-minute window).  Your attendance means that everyone in your party agrees to follow the instructions and understands that they will be asked to leave if the instructions are not followed.
  6. There will be NO BATHROOM FACILITIES available during these services.
  7. We love having children in worship, but because of the pandemic, they must be supervised and with their adults at all times.
  8. Everyone MUST wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth the entire time they are outside of their vehicles.
  9. Everyone MUST practice social distancing at all times.
  10. You must give us a contact phone number in case we need to do contact tracing.
  11. Please feel free to bring your own lawn chair and social distance yourself! Just let Becky know that you will not need an assigned seat in the comments on the sign-up!
  12. YOU CANNOT ATTEND THESE SERVICES WITHOUT PRE-REGISTERING. You may only attend if you receive a confirmation email, which will contain more information about safety requirements and protocols.
