We Can't Wait To See You
In-person on-site worship has returned, and we want to take every precaution to ensure your safety. Limited classes and other activities are also beginning in the building. Please take a moment to read and understand the below information for all in-person activities.
Non Negotiable Safety Guidelines
These guidelines are established by the Holston Annual Conference.
Masks: Protective masks MUST be worn by all persons 3years and up at all times. Your mouth and nose must be covered at all times.
Social Distancing: Social distancing of 6 feet in all directions must be observed.
Attendance: Attendance of all persons must be documented at each worship service for the purpose of contacting the Pulaski County Health Department in case of a COVID-19 infection. Preregistration is required. You may call the church office or register online on Facebook or our webpage. Reservation for in person worship closes at noon on Friday. Walk-ins without a reservation will be seated for worship on Sunday morning as space permits.
Sanitizing: All public spaces must be cleaned and sanitized after each service, especially restrooms and other high-touch areas and surfaces.
What to Expect On Sunday
Parking: Parking will be as normal, but only the main sanctuary entrance will be used for coming into the building. Our greeters will meet you in the parking lot to answer questions and offer assistance. We will continue to broadcast on 87.9 FM.
Seating: An usher will take you/your family to your reserved seats. Seating will be socially distanced in order to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Services: Two in-person gatherings are offered on Sunday mornings. A 9:30am Contemporary and a 11am Traditional service. Both will be live streamed for those who live to far away or do not yet feel comfortable in joining us for in person worship.
Capacity: At this point, a maximum of 55 people will be seated in the Sanctuary, plus volunteers and staff, for each worship service.
Exiting: Worshipers will be released by row/zone after each service to avoid bunching, and will exit out of room 107 and the west entrance (left of the altar). Those with mobility challenges may exit through the sanctuary lobby.
Staff/Volunteers: Temperature checks and wellness screening questions will be asked before services for all staff, worship leaders, and other volunteers. All staff and volunteers will wear a face covering at all times except when actively singing or speaking.
Small groups and classes that are part of the ministry of Dublin United Methodist Church may begin meeting outside and inside, in groups of 25 persons or fewer using face coverings and following strict social distancing guidelines. Please make room reservations through the church office via email or phone.
Group leaders will provide a complete list of everyone in attendance to the church following each meeting. No shared food or beverages are allowed, but items that are served to individuals by a person who is gloved and following strict sanitation guidelines is permissible.
Non-church related groups may not meet on church property at this time. Questions? Contact the church office via email or phone.
A Tad More Information
Dublin United Methodist Church is committed to the health and safety of our members and guests and will be mindful of the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control, the Pulaski County Health Department, and the New River Valley Public Health Task Force and follow established guidelines for houses of worship from the State of Virginia. All reopening plans and future worship schedules are predicated on the containment of the COVID-19 virus in our area.
It is understood that people will make their own decisions based on what they feel comfortable with. Those who are sick should stay home. Vulnerable or high-risk populations also are encouraged to stay home. We will continue to offer our worship online as well as classes and growth content online via video, email, and social media.
