Welcome back to worship

Welcome to Worship at Faith Lutheran Church

It is an exciting time to begin in-person worship again at Faith!  Here are things you’ll need to know as we gather inside.

  • Masks: Due to a new statewide mandate put out by Washington State Governor Jay Inslee you must wear a mask when occupying indoor spaces whether or not you’re vaccinated. The council appreciates your understanding and willingness to make this a safe place for all.
  • Screening and temperatures:  You will not be asked to take your temperature when coming to worship.  Please self-screen, noting any COVID symptoms that you or a family member may be experiencing.  If you or a family member at your home is feeling sick, or has a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher, please stay home Worship is available online or by dial-in.  Ushers will be logging who is in attendance each week. 
  • Seating:  Please note there are pews that are blocked off to keep physical distancing.  The front pews are blocked off due to recording equipment. 
  • Bulletins: Everything you will need to worship is included in a printed bulletin.  Although Bibles and hymnals have been left in the pews, you won’t be needing them.  The order of worship will not be projected on the screen.
  • Holy Communion: The sacrament will be celebrated each week.  Holy Communion pre-packed kits are available with grape juice and a wafer.  The juice is available with a gluten free cracker for those who require that option.  You will pick up the kit when entering church and keep it with you until the Meal is celebrated.  Once the presider gives you the Invitation, you can eat the wafer and drink from the cup while remaining in your pew.  
  • Singing:   Please sing at your heart’s content, keeping your mask on if you are wearing it.  Worship cantors may be singing without a mask, but are at least 15’ from those seated in the assembly.  
  • Offering:  Plates will be set out at the back of the sanctuary and in the Narthex.  Please place any gifts you bring in the plates.  No offering plates will be passed around during worship.  Giving electronically is available through the website, under “Give.”
  • Worship streaming, recording, and dial-in:  The worship service will be recorded to be viewed anytime from our website or YouTube channelLive streaming will also occur on Sunday mornings as well as the dial-in option for audio 425-535-9449).  
  • Nursery:  At this time due to COVID, we are not opening the nursery.  Parents and kids are welcome to worship with us.  Some activities are available for kids, please ask the ushers.
