In-person services: it was great to welcome you back in person on Sunday, November 28, 2021. But with the release of the latest BC guidelines, we ask that you remain fully masked apart from the situations described under ‘Masks’ below.
Those who are fully vaccinated (required for age 12 and up) should continue to gather in the Sanctuary and those who are not vaccinated, and others if they choose, in the Fireside Room. Our Farsi group is in the Stage Room. When seated, we would encourage a ‘respectful’ distance between family groups.
There’ll be a budget vote immediately after the service We aren’t having refreshments after the service, but by all means fellowship after the budget vote either in the foyer for the vaccinated, the Fireside Room for the unvaccinated, or the Stage Room for the Farsi group.
For those who would prefer to join us from home, you can do so by joining our brand-new Livestream. The stream is hosted on the WVBC website – you will see a large “JOIN NOW” button at the top of the home page when the service is live at 10:00am. For our Mandarin participants, you can still watch the Livestream on ZOOM to hear the translated message. You can join using this link.
Masks: The latest information we have is that in worship services, masks are required for all. They may be temporarily removed when physical distancing if you are partaking in communion, and if you are ‘officiating’ – emcee, giving announcements, leading prayer, calls to worship, benediction, spotlights on ministry presentations, preaching, scripture reading, Advent candles - and if you are the lead singer of a song, hymn or carol.
