In-Person Worship Opportunities during the Pandemic

We encourage our members to continue utilizing online/virtual services as the primary means of worship; however, the following limited opportunities for worship in-person are offered for those who feel a strong desire to receive Holy Communion.

Tuesday Morning Worship

This brief service of Holy Communion in the chapel is held at 9:00AM each Tuesday, with priority given to those members who do not have easy access to a computer and are unable to participate in online worship. Attendance is by reservation only.

However, there remains space for five (or so) additional members to attend. Please contact Pastor Brian (pastor@stmarkbelleville.org) directly if you are interested in reserving a spaces for any of the upcoming Tuesdays.

Saturday Evening Worship

Additionally, for members in general who feel a strong desire to receive communion, an in-person service of Holy Communion in the chapel is held at 5:00PM on Saturdays. Reservations are required and can be made using “Sign-Up Genius.” Click HERE to access the sign-up portal, where you enter your name, email address, and the number of people who will sit with you. *NOTE: If there are three or fewer people signed-up by noon on Saturday, the service that evening will be cancelled.

All attendees for Tuesdays and Saturdays should expect the following:

  • The wearing of cloth face coverings/masks is required
  • Communion is served in the form of prepackaged wafer and grape juice
  • Physical distancing will be maintained, although members who live together and/or who traveled together to worship may sit together.
  • There will be NO: singing, congregational responses, physical sharing of the peace, greeting line, or formal time of fellowship.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available and its use is encouraged by attendees upon arrival.
  • Of course, please stay home if you are showing any signs or symptoms associated with COVID-19, even if you think “it’s just allergies.”

IMPORTANT: These preventative measures are in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19, but none of them guarantee that you or your family members will not become infected. Please use your best judgment on whether or not to attend in-person worship.

*Please note that online worship in our current format will continue.
