COVID-19 Update

Beginning on April 4th, we're returning to weekly in-person worship on Sundays.

It's been a long road to get here - and everything is subject to change when you're in a pandemic - but we're so excited and grateful to return to the Meetinghouse to be back together as God's people, even if it still looks different.

Got questions? We've got a few answers. 

COVID-19 Gathering FAQs

How will you keep your gatherings safe?
Here's the summary:

* Our Sunday worship gatherings are limited to 150 people in the Meetinghouse.
* Each person seeking to attend will need to RSVP beforehand. (This will be up on the website the Monday before the next worship service.)
* An usher will direct individuals to seats that are appropriately spaced from other attendees.
* We're asking all attending to wear a mask at all times and keep 6 feet from everyone who isn't a member of their household.
* We love being back together and are excited to reconnect - but for now, we are asking everybody to move their conversations outside where it's safer. Beginning on April 4th, we invite you to join us right outside the entrance for Outdoor Connection Corner, where you can learn a little more on what's coming up in the life of our church.

That's the short version. When you RSVP for a worship service, you'll find a more comprehensive overview.
Will you still do virtual worship services?
Absolutely. We know everybody's in a different place with the current COVID-19 landscape, so we will continue to live-stream the Traditional worship service and premiere the Alternative worship service at 9:30am on our YouTube channel.
What about all the other stuff happening at Colonial?
For now, most things in the life of our community will remain in virtual formats. But to get the most up-to-date information for each area, we invite you to peek around the rest of our website.
I'm an external group. Can I book Colonial's space now?
Yes, though we're taking it slow here. To find out more, contact Julie Dover to learn more about our protocols and to reserve space inside or outside the building.
When will things get back to "normal"?
That's the question everybody's asking, and we're no different. We're committed to ongoing conversations with lay leadership, and we're always seeking the good of our neighbor, no matter how imperfect that looks sometimes. But rest assured: we're watching the vaccine rollout and COVID landscape closely, and we'll be ready to pivot when the moment calls for it.
