COVID-19 & Church


 The leadership at Ascutney Union Church have been praying about this global pandemic and it's affect on the life of our little congregation. We neither want to over react to things nor pretend there is no possible threat to any of us. From the professionals that we have heard to date - those most vulnerable to this virus are the elderly and those with preexisting conditions. Please continue to pray as we strive to minister to people. Here is the plan to date:

  • According to the CDC, any gathering larger than 50 people should cancel. We currently have fewer then 50, so the plan for now is to meet as a congregation for worship. These are the "rules" for Sunday:
    1. I have wiped down all the pews, railings, chairs, doorknobs, and other surfaces that people touch with disinfectant wipes.  
    2. I will not be in the doorway greeting people with hugs. Sad but true!
    3. We are asking folks to sit spread out to keep our "Social Distancing" 
    4. Please cover your coughs and sneezes with the inside curve of your elbow.
    5. We have hand sanitizer in each pew... please use it as is stated below.
    6. Wash & sanitize your hands: Sing/hum "Happy birthday" twice while scrubbing hands. Do this full treatment with soap & water as well as hand sanitzer. 

  • We will "Live Stream" our services on Facebook.
    • If we do "close" church we don't plan to cancel service. We plan to continue live streaming worship so everyone can log into Facebook and watch together.
    • We will also attempt to post these services on the website.
    • If you watch from home please remember to send in your tithes as we will still have bills to pay! :-)

We are praying that this virus ends it rampage soon. Only God knows, but we don't need to panic! Let us use caution and wisdom moving forward by trusting God and taking these precautions seriously. Let us continue to pray for each other and those most vulnerable!
