WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY MORNING (Hybrid Worship Model)
 
Join us for worship this Sunday, February 21 at 10:30 AM. This week we begin our Lenten study of the Lord’s Prayer by examining “Our Father, Who Art in Heaven.” Read the details below about our return to a hybrid worship model allowing both in-person and online worship with increased safety protocols. Click the links below to access the service video and bulletin.
 
 
WORSHIP UPDATE FOR FEBRUARY
The Coronavirus Commission of SHPC has decided to return to our hybrid worship pattern for the month of February with increased safety protocols. This decision was made based on the fact that Mobile County has been in the “moderate” or “low” risk categories for three weeks as determined by the Alabama Department of Public Health. Following state recommendations, we will make a few additional changes to our safety protocols for those who choose to worship in-person. A maximum capacity of 50 people will be imposed in the sanctuary (including ushers and worship leaders). If that capacity is reached, additional worshipers will be invited to gather in the Fellowship Hall to join the service on the closed circuit TV feed. Additionally, safe distancing will be increased in the sanctuary by adjusting the seating pattern from what was used in the fall. Masks will continue to be required, and all worshipers will follow the instructions of the ushers to be safely seated and dismissed. For those who join the worship service online (through YouTube or Facebook), nothing will change. Click the link below for a video explaining these safety updates in more detail.
