We are excited to announce that we are resuming in-person worship with limitations at Song of Life UMC starting on Easter Sunday, subject to local COVID-19 positivity rates. We will worship outdoors, wear masks, maintain physical distancing protocols, and refrain from hand shaking, hand holding, hugging, group singing and speaking.
We know that not of us are ready to resume in-person worship yet, so we will continue offering online worship in addition to our in-person services, including on Easter Sunday. All of our Easter services will include Holy Communion.
Our schedule for Easter is as follows:
- 6:00 am Easter Sunrise In-Person Outdoor Worship [Sunrise Digital Bulletin]
- 8:00 am Easter Online Worship [Online Digital Bulletin]
- 9:30 am Easter Sunday In-Person Outdoor Worship [Easter Resurrection Digital Bulletin]
- 10:30 am Easter Egg Hunt for the Kids!
Before attending in-person worship, we are asking our worshipers to read and sign our Return to In-Person Worship Covenant. We have developed a Reservations System that we are asking you to use to reserve space for you and your family during our in-person services. After you complete your reservations, you will receive an email with additional information. There are two ways you can access this system:
- If you have our Church Center App on your phone, simply open the App, tap on “More” at the bottom of the screen, then tap on “Events” and you’ll see the links to the three events that require a reservation; or
- Click on the appropriate link below for the event(s) for which you want to reserve space for yourself and your family. If you attend SoL on a regular basis, you should log into the system (or create a log-in ID if you have not already done so) and follow the prompts to make your reservation
Easter Sunrise In-Person Worship (6:00 am)
Join us for our first in-person worship since March 2020 as we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ! Both of the in-person services will be held outdoors in the parking lot and patio at Song of Life UMC. We will follow all the safety protocols described above.
Easter Sunday In-Person Worship (9:30 am)
Join us for our second in-person worship since March 2020 as we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ! We expect that this service will “sell out,” so if you have a good alarm clock, please consider attending the Sunrise service, so that we can better balance the services and accommodate more people.
2021 Easter Egg Hunt (10:30 am)
We are so excited to offer an in-person Easter Egg Hunt for our young members and friends of SoL!! It’s been so long since we’ve been together, so we hope all of our kids will join in this socially distanced Egg Hunt. Ms. Erika (our Children’s Ministry Teacher) is busy working with our “Easter Bunnies” to fill our eggs with treats and toys that won’t melt in the spring sunshine! We will also have a craft and coloring sheets for our young ones to work on before and after the hunt.
Unlike our worship reservation system, this one only requires a parent’s name and the number of children you will be bringing with you to the hunt. This is only so we will be sure to have enough eggs to be found.
Our children will gather in the Sanctuary at 10:30 at physically-distanced tables before the hunt. If your children have their own Easter Baskets, we encourage you to bring them, or we will have some at the church as well. Children over age 2 must wear a mask.
