Zion In-person Worship Guidelines

In order to re-open Zion safely & responsibly, worshippers and friends are asked to be aware and please observe the following safety protocols:

• Worshippers are required to wear a mask at all times.


• Each different family unit needs to be “socially distanced” at 6 feet; children with other children at 3 feet. (as per CDC)


• Only two individuals are allowed in the bathrooms at the same time. Parents are allowed to accompany their children.


• Please maintain a safe distance from other family units through the hallways, Narthex and Sanctuary. Be seated as indicated by the ushers. You will also leave, one pew at a time—at the usher’s direction.


• When leaving, you may use either of our two doors.  Please leave promptly and try to restrict your conversation(s) to the parking lot.

Online Services

If you cannot join us in person, we invite you to worship with us via Facebook Livestream at the link below. We broadcast our live, Sunday services at 10:30 a.m. Watch Facebook Livestream on Facebook or here on our site.

Other Important Safety Procedures:

Please Note:  You may participate in the service, with your mask in a quiet and restrained manner.


• Upon entering the church, you will be asked to sign in (for contact tracing procedures) and have your temperature checked. A temperature of 100.4° F is considered to be a “fever”; it would be best if you stayed home. Also, if you are caring for someone who is ill, please stay home.


• If you have the following existing conditions, you are “at risk” and you should consider staying home: asthma; lung disease; diabetes; liver; kidney; heart disease; a compromised immune system.


• Foot traffic should be one-way only; windows will need to be opened slightly. Dress accordingly.


• Offering plates will be at the back of the church; communion will “come to you” in the form of a “packet” of wafer and wine.


• The center aisle will be reserved for worship participants only. THANK YOU for your consideration and caring for your fellow worshippers.

God Bless and be safe.
