PLAN TO GATHER UPDATE

June 8, 2021

The burden is below 25 (see the COVID-19 information page) which means we are now in Phase 3.
Worship services are now as follows beginning June 13:

Sunday – 8:00 am – Sanctuary – socially distanced with masks optional if fully vaccinated
Sunday – 9:15 am – Sanctuary – socially distanced with masks optional if fully vaccinated with LIVESTREAM
Sunday – 10:30 am – Out doors on Celebration Patio, socially distanced
Thursday – 12:15 and 6:15 pm – Sanctuary – socially distanced with masks optional if fully vaccinated

These are the guidelines we will follow for in-person. INSIDE, worship – we will:

…care for one another’s health. If feeling ill, we will remain home and worship online.
…masks, while indoors, are optional if  you are fully vaccinated
…distribute communion elements as you enter.
…place an offering box at the entrance of the worship space.
…sit where the bulletins are placed, in physically distant spots.
…refrain from congregational singing (but humming along is encouraged)
…have overflow seating in the Narthex and Fellowship Hall if we have more than 80 people attending.
…share a non-touch peace.
…gather for fellowship on the Celebration Patio as we prepare for our outdoor service at 10:30 am.

RESTOCKING OUR PANTRIES

At the beginning of the pandemic, Social Ministry donated all the food and supplies that were on hand in the food pantry to central distribution centers in our community. Now all these months later, the ministry has decided to resume some pre-pandemic activities. We are looking for items for emergency food baskets, Easter food baskets, Wausau Warming Center cleaning supplies and our Lenten hygiene drive.

A collection area will be set up in the Fellowship Hall for donated items. CLICK HERE for a printable shopping list of the items we are collecting.

EMERGENCY FOOD BASKETS

For those in need, Saint Andrew will again begin distributing emergency food baskets. If you know of someone who could use a food basket, please contact the church office.
