Whenever the official Marion County 7-Day (All Tests) Positivity Rate is below 5% for the previous week (shown on this site), we will gather in-person the following Sunday worship at our building (3535 Kessler Blvd E Dr, Indy). We will also provide an online gathering option for those unable to join us.
We ask that you not attend in-person worship if:
- You or someone in your household feels ill or has a fever,
- You or someone in your household has been exposed to someone with Covid in the last 10 days,
- You or someone in your household is awaiting Covid test results.
If you plan to join us for worship, please look over these protocols we have put in place to keep everyone safe:
- We will practice social distancing in family groups (6 feet away in narthex/bathrooms, 3 chairs between family groups in the sanctuary).
- Kids must be with their parents at all times (including before and after worship).
- We will wash or sanitize our hands upon entering the building.
- We will wear masks the entire service (double-masking is preferred).
- Singing and responding will be allowed with masks on.
- We’ll have a maximum capacity of 60 people, with an overflow option available in the foyer for perhaps 25 more in the narthex.
- We’ll make Eucharist in the same safe manner we’ve been doing it outdoors, with ministers distributing communion elements to people in their seats to avoid too much movement in the sanctuary.
- No kids ministry will be available at this time, and kids will need to sit with their families for the duration of the service (hint: bring some quiet activities to keep them occupied!).
- We ask that all congregants exit the church building right after service so that we can lessen exposure and begin cleaning protocols. However, please do stay to chat with one another outdoors!
- Finally, if you or a member in your immediate family test positive for Covid-19 we ask that you inform a member of our staff or Vestry so that we can work with you to identify others in our community who might have been exposed. It’s important for us to know this information so that we can work together to keep our community safe.
