Dear Preston Road,
Beginning Sunday, September 20th, you will have three options for worshipping with your Preston Road Family. We urge you to consider all the relevant health and safety factors as you discern which option is best for you and your circle of friends, family, and contacts.
The first option is an outdoor Praise & Communion Service in the shady area of the church parking lot at a new time of 8:30AM (Weather Permitting).
- This service lasts approximately 30 minutes and includes prayer, scripture reading, communion, and limited singing.
- All attendees are expected to maintain appropriate physical distance (at least 6 Feet) and wear masks while in the parking lot and throughout the service, except for when taking communion.
- Speakers will remove their masks when behind the microphone while maintaining at least 20 feet of distance from others.
- Parents are responsible for their children throughout the service. There will be no nursery or childcare.
- Capacity for this service is limited to 75 participants and reservations are required. Chairs will be grouped according to the number of people stated on the reservation form. Seating will be preassigned.
The second option is an indoor Worship Gathering in the sanctuary at 10AM.
- This service will include prayer, communion, preaching, and limited singing.
- All attendees are expected to maintain appropriate physical distance (at least 6 feet) and wear masks throughout the church building and parking lot.
- Masks must be worn throughout the service, except when taking communion.
- Speakers will remove their masks when on stage while maintaining at least 20 feet of distance from the congregation.
- Parents are responsible for their children throughout the building and during the service. There will be no nursery or childcare.
- The coffee bar will be closed, and no food or drink will be allowed in the sanctuary.
- Capacity for this service is limited to 75 participants and reservations are required. Seating will be preassigned.
The third option is to watch the live stream of our 10AM worship service from home. We encourage our elderly members and those with underlying health conditions to take advantage of this option.
- You will be able to access the live stream from the Preston Road website.
- If you miss the live stream, you will be able to access a recording of the entire service on our YouTube channel at 11AM.
- We will be sending links and detailed instructions for accessing our live stream and on-demand content in an email later this week.
As you make your decision, please remember that according to our local and national health experts, outside is safer than inside, and staying at home is safer still. Whether it be outside, inside, or online, we look forward to seeing you this Sunday.
