Last Sunday our worship service was well attended in the pavilion and we are planning to do the same thing this coming Sunday in the pavilion, at 10am, May 31st.  This Sunday is also Pentecost Sunday and we ask you to wear red, if you can, to represent the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after his Ascension.  It’s a custom here at Deer Park.

We will continue to follow all the current guidelines regarding social distancing, wearing masks and sanitation.  This means that the seating will be spread out to allow at least 6ft. between each chair.  We ask you to please wear a mask.  (We have some on hand if you do need one).  Be advised that we will not have congregational singing but there will be a few hymns during the service.  We are also required to take attendance for this service as we did last week.  PLEASE check in at the table where Cindy will be taking your names and also get your temperature taken. This is also required.  There absolutely can be NO hand shaking, hugging or other close contact at all.  I know this is the most difficult part but I think you can understand it is for everyone’s protection.  Our chairs will be thoroughly cleaned before and after the service. You certainly may bring your own chair if you would like.

Please know that we do not expect everyone to come to this service. You must each consider your own health and evaluate the risks involved for yourself and others. Please, if you have any cold or flu like symptoms, stay home! If you are concerned about being in public, stay home. We understand that many of you cannot take chances because of various health conditions.

We hope to have parts of this service recorded as a video we can send out afterward via Facebook, YouTube and our website (dpumc.net).

Keep praying and keep reading your Bibles and stay safe and I hope to see you soon!
