Church Services Are Online & Will Be In Person at A Later Date

Greetings—
The Board of Directors of Holy Covenant MCC has been monitoring the situation around COVID-19 carefully, following news reports and the Departments of Public Health for Chicago and for the state of Illinois. We know that some members of our community and some family members are in fragile states of health, and it is vital that they are protected. At the same time, fear cannot rule our lives.

UPDATE 05/30/21

Please join us this Sunday online or in-person starting June 20th. Fellowship follows after services with coffee, some food, and lively conversation when we meet at the church. Read below the guidelines which can change per the CDC.

The Board of Holy Covenant is delighted to announce that we will be returning to in-person worship on Sunday, June 13th! Our live stream will continue, via Facebook Live, for those who cannot or do not wish to attend in person for whatever reason.

Guidelines include:

  • Masks required (available at the door if needed)
  • Hand sanitizer use on the entrance (available at the door)
  • Temperature check on the entrance (touchless)
  • Vaccinations encouraged
  • Social distancing (our chairs will be arranged for both groups and individuals, six feet apart)
  • We will not be singing
  • Doors will be open and the ceiling fan on to provide constant air circulation
  • If you are not feeling well, please stay home and take care of yourself, and watch us on Facebook or YouTube!
Communion
               Communion wafers will be dropped into your hand. Both grape juice and wine will be available in small individual-serving disposable cups; you may dip your wafer or drink the wine/juice.
Prayers
               Prayers will be available but confirm with the prayer partner how close to them you are comfortable being.
Live-stream
               We will live stream the full service via Facebook Live only (not Zoom). The camera will be focused on the altar/pulpit area; the congregation will not be visible on-camera. The video of the service will be available on both Facebook (shortly after the service) and on Holy Covenant’s YouTube channel (sometime that week).

Blessings to you in the name of the Great Healer—

Rev Martha Daniels
And Board of Directors
