In-Person Worship

In-Person Worship

LIMITED In-Person Worship has resumed. As we gather in-person, we are exercising great care to consider the risks faced and the corresponding precautions we must take to enable the safest possible in-person worship experience.

Given safe Physical Distancing requirements, we have limited seating capacities in both our sanctuary and contemporary worship spaces. If you wish to attend in-person, we ask that you call the church office (412-364-3613) to reserve a space for you and your family or make your reservation by clicking the button below.

Each week, reservations for the coming Sunday will be taken beginning Monday at noon through Friday at noon. Everyone who submits a form will receive an email that their reservation has been received, and you will be notified that you are confirmed for the service for which you signed up. If the requested service is full, you will be notified, offering either a different service that week (if any still have room), or granting priority reservations for the following Sunday.

Reservations are expected for the foreseeable future to allow for Physical Distancing. If you are in a vulnerable population, please give priority to your well-being, and instead opt for worshipping ONLINE (our 8:30am Traditional Worship and 11am Contemporary Worship will continue to be LIVE STREAMED from now on. Simply go to our website homepage and click the LIVE STREAM button at 8:30am or 11am on Sunday mornings).

8:30 a.m. Outdoor worship in the Grove – Please Bring-Your-Own-Chair and exercise all safety precautions.

Due to current health guidelines, we will not be able to offer childcare in our nursery or children’s ministry during worship. If you attend with small children, you will remain together as a family. We are working toward that care and ministry in the future.

In-Person Worship Guidelines
Masks will be required and Physical Distancing will be observed. You may not be able to sit in your regular locations due to spacing needs and design. Please do your part to help those serving on Sundays to keep you healthy. We will continue to receive our offering online or you may leave your offering in baskets provided. We will ask you to refrain from physical contact with other worshippers. It will feel different, but seeing each other and worshipping together is a first step in our return.

We expect everyone in worship to complete a Connect Card to ensure that we have open channels of communication in the event of a health concern.

We will clean and sanitize our spaces regularly and between our services.

Important Precautions
Please do not plan to attend if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19 which include fever, sore throat, dry cough, headache, loss of taste and smell, and respiratory symptoms.

  • Continue to use good hygiene
  • Wash your hands for 20 seconds or longer
  • Use hand sanitizer regularly
  • Wear a mask when out in public
