What to Know About Attending Service In Person

When are the in-person services?


Sundays at 10:30am




What do our on-site gatherings look like?


Pre-registration is required for each service to ensure we do not exceed our capacity. Services will be limited to 40 congregants, factoring in social distancing protocols. Front doors open 15 minutes before each service and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. When you arrive, please check-in at the screening station and wait to be seated by an usher.




What safety and health measures are being taken?


All congregrants will be fully vaccinated. Worship service will be at a limited capacity to allow for socially-distanced seating between attendees. Chairs will be arranged to accommodate social distancing between families and groups. Bathrooms will be limited to two individuals at a time. Sanitization protocols will be in place. Unless on the podium, all persons leading or serving in worship are required to wear masks. All attendees are also required to wear masks, including children above the age of two.




Am I really required to wear a mask?


Yes. This is a very important part of allowing our weekend services to continue in as safe an environment as possible. We continue to ask ourselves the question “what does love compel us to do?” And we strongly believe that wearing a mask is the loving thing to do in an indoor worship environment. We are not driven by fear. Wearing a mask is for others, and not necessarily for myself. If you do not have a mask or have forgotten your mask at home, we will have masks available at the door to give to you. We are committed to kindly and lovingly reminding you to have your mask on at all times.




Do I need to register to attend services?


Yes. Registration is available one week prior to each service to give ample time to plan ahead and register. We ask that attendees please self-screen before attending a service. Anyone experiencing a fever, cough, or other COVID-19 symptoms should not attend. Attendees must also complete an online pre-screening questionnaire prior to arrival.
If you need to cancel or make any changes to your reservation, please email administration@judahtemple.net.




What if I am considered “high-risk”?


Vulnerable populations should not attend at this time. If you or someone in your family is considered “high-risk” for severe illness, we encourage you to continue worshipping with us online.




What if I’m not ready to attend in-person services yet?


Until you feel comfortable attending in person, you are welcome to join us for an identical online worship experience. We will continue to broadcast each of our services via Zoom, the Judah website, Facebook, and YouTube.




How will offerings work?


We will not pass an offering basket. Tithes and offerings can be placed in the baskets in the back of the sanctuary or you may give online.




I'm new—how do I get connected?


If you are new to Judah Temple, need care, want to join a group, or would like to talk to someone about a concern, let us know! Contact administration@judahtemple.net for more information.




Does Judah Children’s Church have in-person programming?


There will be no in-person Children’s Church at this time. However, we encourage your children to attend Children’s Church via Zoom. Contact administration@judahtemple.net for access.




Will Youth Ministry meet in-person?


No. Youth Meet-Ups are held virtually every 2nd and 4th Sundays for middle school, high school and college students. Middle school Meet-Ups begin at 5:00 pm; High school and college Meet-Ups begin at 6:00 pm. Contact youthministry@judahtemple.net for more information.




What about W.E.L.L. Groups and Classes?
