Worship Guidelines June 2020

This is a rough draft  that the Council/Worship Committee is working on for resuming worshiping.  

  1. Those over 65, or with pre-existing conditions, and children under 5 should temporarily continue to worship from home with the online worship.  

  2. Worshipers will need to wear a face covering.

  3. Mark off pews to encourage social distancing. (unless they are the same family living together).

  4. Offer optional forehead temperature to help someone to see an oncoming sickness.

  5. Make hand sanitizers available at all entryways.

  6. Prop open doors (increase ventilation) and designate one-way traffic patterns to ensure social distancing. Have ushers assist when necessary to help maintain physical distancing.

  7. Post signs with protocols.

  8. Take seat cushions out of the pews.

  9. Offering plates and other items will not be passed person to person. 

  10. Instruct worshipers not to greet each other without contact.

  11. Remove hymnals from pews. 

  12. Limit restroom occupancy.

  13. Identify a safe process for those counting the offerings.

  14. Remove children’s busy bags.

  15. Coffee hour suspended temporarily.

Lord’s Supper Distribution Protocol:

  1. The preparer of the elements will wear gloves and mask.

  2. The distributors will wear gloves and masks and limit contact with bread and wine. 

  3. Use individual cups with cups spaced apart.

  4. Approach the altar six feet apart.

  5. If any tray that is contaminated, for any reason, it will be discarded.

"Hi Pilgrim Family! We decided to create a Facebook group for us all to stay connected and spiritually supported while we can't actually gather for church. Anyone in the congregation is welcome to join our Facebook group. Please take a minute to join us in the group so that we can all stay connected and support each other in their faith each day."

Thank you to Amanda Bielke for setting up this page!

Curious what to post? Here are some ideas:
- Any encouragement you want to share
- Ideas and Suggestions for how you or your family are practicing your faith at home
- Prayer requests
- Anything that you want to share to stay connected with others in our Pilgrim Church family
- Favorite songs, Bible Verses, etc.
March 27 -  Further Notice
-  Pastor will be working from home and will be at church on a limited basis.  
-  Bonnie will be working limited hours in the church office

During this time we both want to serve the members of Pilgrim.  Please call before you come to the church or contact us at the numbers below:
Pastor:  Cell 612-222-2050                email  pastor@pilgrimonline.net
Bonnie:  Cell  763-248-0667              email  churchoffice@pilgrimonline.net

We have noticed more “hits” on our webpage when people share.  If the service is one that you benefited from, why not share it?  

This is a much easier way to invite a friend who might be “searching” to Pilgrim.
