Certainly, we are living in challenging times. As we emerge from this pandemic, each of us will have our own story to tell. There is a story, which never changes. It is story, which brings healing and transformation. This story began over two thousand years ago. Jesus walked this earth to bring healing, to give us new life. This story continues to be told today and the mission remains the same.
Everyone has different personal circumstances, which effects how comfortable they are in public settings. Mosaic completely understands. For those who are ready to regather, we have worked hard to create a safe space while following appropriate guidelines.
We are excited to announce that Mosaic is returning to IN-PERSON worship Sundays at 8 am. Please arrive by 7:50 am in order to be seated. Please note that worship will look different. Even though we won't have music, we will worship God through His Word, Prayer, Testimony and a Biblically based message.
We will continue to have our ON-LINE service (with music) at 10 am (currently on Facebook Live). New equipment is beginning to arrive for our new online worship service platform. Stay tuned for more details.
- Additional fans have been added for improved ventilation
- Hand Santizing Stations throughout the facility
- The offering basket is not passed
- All chairs and areas have been disinfected with Bactrokill & other cleaning products, which kill 99% of germs
- Please bring your own beverages. Water fountains & the coffee bar are not available.
IN-PERSON REGISTRATION & ASSIGNED SEATING: Given the size of our sanctuary and in order to maintain social distancing, we are able to have about 35 chairs. In order to be guaranteed a seat, please register for the worship service. REGISTER here.
SOCIAL DISTANCING: By pre-registering, Mosaic will have chairs setup at least 6 feet apart. You will be greeted and taken to your seat for the service. We know it is not natural, but we ask that you do not shake hands, fist bump or hug anyone while inside.
FACE MASKS: Please bring a face mask that you will be comfortable wearing properly, covering your nose and mouth, while you are inside. Complimentary masks are available should you forget your mask. If you are not able to wear a mask properly for any reason we have an online worship service, or once everyone else is seated in the sanctuary, you may sit in the lobby to participate in the worship service.
CHILDREN: Kids Crossing will NOT be held on Sunday mornings. Families are receiving an adventure box each month including bible lessons and crafts. For more information or if you would like to receive a box, e-mail our Family Life Director, Timothy Guiliani, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Should parents decide they want to bring their children to the worship service, the children will need to stay with them and maintain social distancing from non-family members for the entirety of the service. We desire for church to be a positive experience for children, so parents, please be realisitic about your kids.
PLEASE STAY HOME IF during the 14 days prior to joining us, you:
- Have any cold* or flu like symptoms;
- Have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID; OR
- Traveled to one of the states that the PA Dept of Health requires you to self-quarantine (check www.health.pa.gov for an updated list).
This is extremely important in order to love and care for one another. We look forward to seeing you once you are able.
*Cold season is approaching. Because of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, for those who do not work digitally, a cold is enough to keep someone home from work. For some, if they are not able to go to work physically, the person does not get paid. This can be a hardship. Therefore, for the sake of one another, if someone develops a cold, we ask for you to stay at home and to care for yourself.
If you would like to join us in-person please REGISTER here.
All of these measures are only as good as far as we all follow them. We will need to work together. As Paul tells us in his first letter to the church in Corinth, “No one should seek their own good, but the good of others,” (10:24, NIV). We are doing this for one another.
