We are excited that we now have basic technology for live-streaming our services on Sunday so that, beginning on June 6th, we can integrate in-person worship in our sanctuary and virtual worship for those who can’t join us there safely or practically. It’s the best of both worlds!
After careful consideration of the new CDC guidelines Brookmeade church leaders want to start our in-person worship requiring all persons to use masks while indoors. This will allow us to sing together as a congregation once more. We will hold our reknowned Coffee Fellowship outside, weather permitting. Full details and safety protocols are now available and will be updated as necessary on our website at the Hybrid Worship tab on the main menu (Hybrid Worship at Brookmeade (brookmeadeucc.org).
For those who are unable or not ready to attend in-person, Sunday services will be live streamed from our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/brookmeadeucc). You do not need a Facebook account to watch the live stream. Just visit our Facebook page and scroll down to find the livestream. If prompted to login, click “Not Now”. Services will later be uploaded to our Youtube channel, where our all-virtual services have appeared this last year.
In addition to holding Coffee Fellowship outdoors whenever weather permits, we will limit our fare to beverages and for now, pre-packaged finger foods. Any contributions of pre-packaged finger foods are very welcome.
This is a work in progress. After worship on June 6th we will have an open conversation with everyone present about these protocols for safe worship. This will also be a time for discussing any of your anxieties and questions about meeting in-person again.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. Your leaders and staff are looking forward to worshiping with all of you again in-person!
