Re-Entry Plans for the Hedrick-Martinsburg United Methodist Church
Colder weather is now upon us. The Administrative Council has decided to begin holding our worship services inside our church starting this Sunday, October 18th, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. We will still be streaming through the 102.3 FM station if you choose to remain outside in your vehicle. Pastor Michael will also continue to post weekly sermons online through our website at hedrickumc.org, our Facebook page and You Tube Hedrick UMC. This gives everyone three options to worship with us.
We do have some guidelines that we have to follow for the In-Person Worship Services, such as:
· Wearing masks are encouraged at your comfort level but not required.
· Please social distance – we have lots of room to space out from our pews in the sanctuary, tables in the fellowship hall, chairs in the chapel and Sunday School rooms with speakers
· We have 3 automatic hand sanitizer stations throughout the church
· We will not be passing the attendance pads
· The offering plate will not be passed around but placed in the back to collect offerings
· We will have music but at this point singing is still discouraged L
· We will have a children’s time, but the kids will stay in their seats with parents as they listen.
· No Fellowship (coffee & cookie time) following the service
· And of course - If you are not feeling well we ask that you please stay home, watch online and feel better soon.
We ask for your prayers and support as we move forward. Please know that we are making our decisions with the best intentions and we will be constantly revisiting our plan.

Sunday Worship October 18, 2020
We are a welcoming and mission-oriented church family. During this time of social distancing, we have established this site to enable us to pray and worship together. Pastor Michael's messages will be available to watch here. In addition, we welcome your prayer requests. We will support each other virtually until we are able to worship together again.
"As called disciples of Jesus, our mission is to make Disciples of Christ by reaching out to the community with joy, vitality and friendship.
