Easter Sunrise Website Banner

Thanks to the careful efforts of Elim’s leadership, your patience and cooperation, as well as the increasing availability of vaccines, we are ready to undertake in-person worship at Elim once again beginning Sunday, April 18 at 9:00 AM.


+For these first weeks of our return and for the welfare of everyone concerned, we ask that you please practice concern for others above yourself. The wearing of face masks and distanced seating will be necessary.

+Worship will begin promptly at the times indicated, with the doors opening 25 minutes prior to the beginning of the service and closing 15 minutes after worship concludes. Once inside, please follow the guidance of the greeters and ushers. Hand-sanitizing stations are available at the entrance and at the doors to the sanctuary.

+Seating will be directed by the ushers to previously determined places within the sanctuary in groups of no more than 4 people. These may NOT be your preferred places. Once the limited capacity is reached in the sanctuary, you will be seated in the upper-level gathering area.

+There will be no singing during worship and limited standing and spoken responses.

+Instructions for receiving holy communion will be provided during the service.

+At the end of the service you will be ushered from the sanctuary. Pr. Mithelman will greet worshippers in the parking lot following worship. We respectfully request that conversations take place in the parking lot rather than inside the church.


Thank you for your consideration of and cooperation with these guidelines.
