In-Person Worship

COS is currently offering three in-person weekly services:

  • 7:45am a spoken Prayerbook Service

  • 10:45am a Traditional Service with more Traditional Music

 

We are no longer requiring online reservations, but we do ask that you sign in upon arrival so that we have your contact information. Socially Safe Christian Formation for kids has resumed. Please check out the recent email with detailed information.

Requirements for In-Person Worship

  • Worshipers are asked to wear an N95 mask over their nose and mouth at all times in church buildings, except when removing it briefly to consume the Communion bread. If you do not have an N95 mask, one will be provided to you upon your arrival to COS.

  • Please join us virtually you have any flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days or is you are unable to be fully vaccinated or have an underlying medical condition.

  • You will be asked to provide your name and contact information upon arrival. Your information will not be shared but we will notify any worshipers of possible exposure if necessary. 

  • Worshipers should maintain a six-foot or more distance from all those who are outside their own household.

  • Worshipers should follow the instructions of the ushers, greeters, and posted signs as to entrance and exit, traffic patterns, restrooms, and seating areas.

  • You are encouraged to make good use of hand sanitizer, particularly before and after receiving Holy Communion.

  • All of our bathrooms are now single occupancy; please follow the posted guidelines for entering and cleaning the bathrooms.​​

  • Singing during the service is permitted but only if you are wearing an N95 mask.

  • The Sharing of the Peace will be exchanged in place with a solemn bow or wave instead of handshakes or hugs outside of your household.

  • At the distribution of Communion, we ask that you please use the spray sanitizer prior to receiving the Host. Instructions will be given on how Communion will be distributed at the service.

  • Communion will be distributed in one-kind only, with the reminder that to receive in one-kind is to receive the fullness of the Sacrament. The wine in the Chalice will be consumed only by the Celebrant.

  • If a worshiper desires a blessing instead of Communion, the blessing will be offered verbally only.​

  • There will be no coffee hour following the service until further notice, per Diocesan recommendations.
