Together In Person

Our Current Regathering Plans

In light of the Delta Variant and how the pandemic trends continue to shift, we are adjusting some of our previously published regathering plans at UPC.

(Note: these adjusted plans are still subject to change as we continue to pay close attention to the pandemic.)

Current Sunday Schedule:

10:00 am – Worship in the Sanctuary, with livestream at upcch.org/live

4:00 pm – Children’s Choir & Junior Choir (outdoors, with masks)

5:00 pm – Youth Choir (outdoors, with masks)

6:00 pm – Youth Group (outdoors, with masks)

 

Next Steps:

September 26:

  • Virtual Coffee Hour @ 9 am on Zoom (link to attend will be in the weekly email).

October 3:

  • Sunday School for all ages at 9:45 resumes (outdoors/masked through 7th grade, indoors/masked for all other ages)
  • Worship shifts to 11 am (and, if attendance warrants it, we will add an 8:30 service)
  • Small groups resume

October 10:

  • Second Sunday Snacks after worship (outdoors)

 

Our COVID Precautions

  • Masks are required indoors on the UPC campus.
  • There are designated sections in the sanctuary for those who prefer to maintain physical distancing.
  • We will be singing, and have reserved the balcony for those who would rather not sing.
  • The nursery is open (with vaccinated nursery workers), and children are also welcome to stay in worship.
  • In lieu of passing the offering plates, offering boxes are available at the front of the sanctuary and in the narthex.
  • We are passing the peace in worship; if you prefer no contact, place your hands together in front of you. (With the rise of the Delta Variant, we are currently asking everyone to greet each other this way.)

 Here’s a video from the TIP Team to help you know what to expect when you attend in person worship!
