The vestry, along with a group of dedicated volunteers are hard at work defining policy and procedures about our regathering on Pentecost! (May 23).
We will be using a system called RSVP.church – Tuesdays (beginning 5/18) you can make reservations at:
Links will remain here on the website and in the eClare. If you need help, contact Barbara at 207.374.5200. She can make a reservation for you.
– If no reservations are available, you will be able to place yourself on the priority list for the following Sunday.
– While our capacity is 50, it takes many volunteers to make a service happen.
This is why it will appear that we are only offering 32 seats.
– Our 8:00 service will return June 6. (All procedures will be the same).
– Worship services will continue to be offered via Zoom and YouTube
A couple of other preliminary notes…
–Full vaccination will be required to attend in-person worship. Exceptions will be made if you are unable to be vaccinated due to a medical condition or eligibility. Please talk to Fr. Brent
-We will move back to10:00 on Pentecost. (8:00 will return shortly thereafter)
-We will need help! The ministries of Greeter (welcoming people and checking them in) and Usher (guiding everyone’s movement during services) will extremely important. Please consider volunteering. (Specifics to follow)
-Don’t forget to get vaccinated! – Things are going to be and feel different, and together we are going to forge a way to be the Church of Jesus Christ right now and right here in Blue Hill. God bless us, everyone!
–We will continue with our on-line offerings for the foreseeable future, so if you are uncomfortable gathering in person, if you can’t get a reservation, or if are choosing not to be vaccinated, fear not, the worship that got us through the pandemic will continue!
If would like to join us on Zoom, contact our Administrator Barbara Brady: 207-374-5200
