Galilee Lutheran Church COVID-19 Guidelines:

  • Our Coffee and Donut Fellowship time will be suspended until further notice

  • Signs will be posted on or near entrance doors asking anyone who is sick, has a fever, or has been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus not to attend the service for the safety of all

  • Doors will be propped open to eliminate the need for everyone to touch the door handles

  • Hand sanitizer will be provided at stations near each entrance. For your safety it is suggested that sanitizer be used upon entering and prior to exiting the building.

  • Disposable masks  will be available at each entrance for those who do not have one

  • Social distancing of at least 6 feet shall be maintained at all times, thus there can be no hugs or handshakes at this time.

  • The wearing of masks is strongly encouraged.  Please remember that we wear masks, not only for our own safety, but to keep others safe.  Unlike other viruses, we can have this virus and be spreading it unknowingly for up to two weeks prior to us even knowing we are sick.

  • Our chairs are arranged in such a way to ensure that 6 feet distance is maintained

  • The service will be shortened to approx. 30-40 minutes to limit our exposure

  • Communion elements, a piece of the bread and the wine, will be placed in individual small cups with lids and will be placed on each chair prior to the start of the service.  During the service, we will remain in our pews and at the appropriate time, Pastor will lead us through partaking of the body and blood of Christ

  • No congregational singing or speaking in unison in normal voices (Pastor will instruct on how we can navigate hymns and the spoken parts of the liturgy).

  • Offering plates will not be passed, one will be placed near the aisle

  • Our restrooms will be open but for your safety we ask that they only be used if absolutely necessary

Note that all congregates and guests who enter the building and attend

services are  doing so at their own risk during the COVID-19 pandemic.
