Regathering in Person

Regathering: Care for All – No One Left Behind

On 29 August 2021 we will gather for In-person and Virtual Worship

Out of an abundance of caution, and a belief in our values and science, The Board of Trustees at its meeting of 1 July affirmed that we would Regather for in-person and virtual worship on Sunday, 29 August 2021.

The following will continue to guide our work:

  • Values of Love, Inclusion, justice, safety, and to do no harm.
  • Protect the vulnerable among us – We will not contribute to community spread of COVID-19.
  • Belief in Good Science – continue to review new information for spikes and new CDC Guidelines.
  • Full transparency about our decision making process.
  • Deep listening.

To that end, we will:

  • Encourage those who can be vaccinated, to do so.
  • Gather with a special Blessing Ceremony.
  • Require masks for all persons who attend in-person worship.
  • Provide Hand sanitizer.
  • Sing wearing masks.

There is no simple, easy way, or perfect way to navigate this unchartered territory. To prepare ourselves for Regathering, we will during the next few months:

  • Be patient with “glitches” and not expect perfection
  • Review UUA guidelines and suggestions for high quality multi-platform worship
  • Explore new equipment, personnel, etc. to maintain quality virtual and in-person worship
  • Hear your ideas for worship as we return
  • Do a deep cleaning and sanitizing of our internal space.

Stay tuned for Project Teams to share the tasks of creating a welcoming space for our return.
