Safety of members and staff is of utmost importance and we will start small and proceed conservatively. Therefore, we ask your patience and understanding in advance. We will follow CDC, IL Public Health Department guidelines and ELCA best practices. Services will be different from pre-pandemic, for example no singing and no group recitation.
Single indoor service at 9am on Sundays
• Masks are required at all times and social distancing will be followed.
• Following the Health Dept guidelines, we will limit participants to 50 at this time.
• Entry and exit will be through the North (2nd floor) main doors only.
• Participants are asked to line up outside and ushers will escort you to your seat following pre-defined paths to allow for social distancing and minimize crossing of paths.
Advance registration is required. Registration will be open on Mondays at 8am and close on Fridays at 10am. Please watch your email for a special Bugle Blast, or registration information or register using the link. If you prefer to call and have help registering, please contact Leah Grebner at 309-688-9212 (Salem church office).
We will also continue to offer the online service for those who are high risk and/or those who are not yet comfortable to gather in person. Each person must make their decision what is right for them.
Thank you for your support as we make our way together through these challenging times and look out for one another.
