Once again, I get to say to you that change is coming. At the most recent Gift Team Board Meeting, the
decision was made to return to our Hybrid model of worship starting April 11th, 2021. Given the current rates
and the continuing roll out of the vaccine, the Gift Team Board and I feel we are ready now to thoughtfully
move forward with in person worship and gathering again.
As we make this change, we acknowledge that for some who are further down the vaccine timeline, or
with vulnerable communities outside the church, the time will still not be right for returning. But as we did in the fall of 2020, we will offer worship space, while still following the same mitigation factors we set in place,
distanced pews, masks, and fellowship outside the building following service.
NOT READY TO RETURN? For those who do not feel comfortable returning at this point due to increased personal or family risk, please note that our current Facebook Live worship will continue. We will continue to stream our services for the foreseeable future, and encourage you to continue to share them with family and friends in several different formats. Check out the Worship Page for more information.
READY TO GATHER? For those who are excited by the opportunity to be in the building, read on for more
about the changes implemented to worship so that when we gather in person, we do our best to limit
everyone’s risk of exposure.
We have a responsibility to care for the health and well-being of all in our
community, including our most vulnerable populations. As we embark upon this process, we ask you
to focus on this commitment to all disciples and friends of the congregation by following through, and helping others to do the same.
Remember what Jesus said when asked about the Greatest Commandment, “Love God, and love your neighbor as yourself”. Let us show our love for all.
We want to keep you informed about what HUCC is doing to address the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and how we are adjusting to the new restrictions.
