Clinton UMC will re-open its building to “in-person”Sunday morning worship starting June 14, 2020.

Until further notice on Sunday mornings:

*The building will only be open for two worship services (8:15 and 10:30). There will be no other Sunday morning activities including: the nursery, fellowship time (donuts & coffee), or Sunday School. Parents your children are welcome to be with you in worship, however no childcare will be provided at this time. 

*Please contact the church office by noon on Friday to let us know you will be attending worship in-person on Sunday, and if so, whether you plan to attend the 8:15 or 10:30 service (660-885-5597 or office@clintonumc.net). Due to social distancing requirements, limited seating is available. Thank you for letting us know you will be coming, as it will be very helpful in our planning for each Sunday.

*Everyone will be required to wear face masks while in the building. The exception will be those who are leading worship from the front of the sanctuary, when they are actually leading in worship (leading singing or prayers, pastor preaching the sermon or giving the benediction, etc.). We ask that you to please bring your own mask. However, face masks will be available if needed.   A few fabric masks are available at the church office - call 660-885-5597 to check on availability.

*Everyone will enter/exit through the front bell tower doors on the north side of the building. This will allow us to better maintain social distancing and minimize contact surfaces that will need to be re-sanitized.

*Please wait outside the bell tower entrance to be seated. You will be seated by ushers from the front to back of the sanctuary.  Only every fourth pew will be used, with couples or one individual sitting on each end.  Families may sit together on the full length of a pew.

*Please pick up any needed worship handouts (bulletin, offering envelopes, etc.) from the table as you enter. The worship handouts will not be reused. Please take them home with you or throw them away in the trash can provided as you leave. 

*The pews are completely empty (no hymnals, bibles, etc.). The pew cushions have also been removed, so please bring your own if needed. 

*Offering plates will not be passed around, but will be available in the back so that you can share your tithes and offerings as you enter or leave. 

*After each 45-minute service is over, please wait to be dismissed (back to front) and guided out by the ushers. You may greet each other outside after the service, but we ask that you please maintain proper social distancing when choosing to do so.

*Right now, the church bus will not be run.
