Welcome Home!


The Bourne UMC will be joining in worship again outdoors on the church lawn, Sunday, August 16th at 11 am. As with every reopening these days, there are a few guidelines. As joyous as it will be to see each other again, it will be necessary for everyone to wear a mask, and while waving at each other is encouraged, everyone must limit social interaction by maintaining social distancing at all time, before, during, and after the service. It is requested that you bring your own chair.

There will two greeters on the lawn at the edge of the parking lot. After you say hello to one of them, they will direct you to an usher who will show you where to put your chair. Everyone is encouraged to come early (at least 15 minutes) so there is time to be seated before the beginning of the service. If there is a line by the greeter, please maintain a distance of six feet from the person in front of you. The usher will hand you the bulletin.

At the end of the service wait to leave until an usher has directed you to do so. Please wave to everyone as you leave but as hard as it will be, do not stop to chat with each other or the Pastor. We can best show our loving care for each other by following these guidelines.

If you are ill, please remain home and watch our service online. If you become ill after having attended a service, it is asked that you call the church office to let someone know. If it is raining, please attend the online service.

Remember, even though we are apart God is near.
