St. Paul’s Guidance for Indoor, In-Person Worship and Gatherings

Indoor worship begins 11/14

Updated October 19, 2021

Guidelines subject to change as pandemic unfolds.

INDOOR IN-PERSON WORSHIP (Digital worship offered as well!)

Based on the most recent CDC instructions, please follow our guidelines for safer in-person indoor worship:

  • We will require that you wear a mask. (sanitizer & masks will be at each entrance)

  • We will require that you sign in for contact tracing purposes.

  • We will encourage three feet of physical distancing. (Seating will be clearly marked and ushers will help us keep our distance. Please only pass the peace to those near you to limit movement around the Hall and Nave)

  • We will say the responses, but no congregational singing. (The choir will sing)

  • We will not come forward to receive the bread or wine; communion of one kind from pews.

  • We will limit two people or family units in each restroom, masked.

  • We will not require a limit on the number of people in attendance, and will use the Vestibule for overflow seating at 10:30.

  • We will not offer in person fellowship after worship.

These are reasons we are able to assemble more safely for indoor in-person worship at this time:

  • Cumberland County has a high vaccination rate and lower cases than other parts of the state.

  • St. Paul’s membership has a high vaccination rate, though we are not requiring proof.

  • The Nave and the Hall are well ventilated. (*Bundle up!)

  • There will be no congregational singing. (The choir will sing)

  • There will be no coming forward to receive bread or wine. (Taken individually while seated in pew)

  • We will continue our contact tracing sign-in upon entering.


  • Masks are required for all people accessing the building.

  • Sign-in for contact tracing is required.

  • St. Paul’s fellowship and committee groups may meet in the building. (Please no food at this time. If you need to take a drink, please replace your mask quickly.)

  • Outdoor receptions may not require masks, but masks are recommended. (We will NOT have indoor receptions at this time.)

  • No limit on the number of people inside the building.

  • Limit to two people or family groups in each restroom.
