Creator Lutheran Church
In person worship protocol
Updated: August 2021
As Washington and the Department of Health has moved into a Washington Ready COVID response, Creator will be easing some of our COVID-19 protocols.
As of August 18, Pierce County is mandated by Director of Health Dr. Anthony Chen to wear masks in public when inside and outside when social distancing isn’t possible. This applies to everyone 5 years old and above. Creator Lutheran will be requiring this for events and worship until stated otherwise by Pierce County.
As of August 1st, there will be no registration for worship or temperature checks upon arrival. We will keep seating in sections with 6ft of distance in order to offer options for congregants to maintain distance if desired; you may sit with people from other households if mutually agreed upon. We will begin communing at two stations by the altar. The pre-filled communion cups will be available for those who wish to remain in your seats for communion distribution. Food and beverages will not be served at large gatherings. Worship will continue to be available live-streamed and posted after worship on YouTube. As always, if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, or have been in contact with someone who is experiencing symptoms, please stay home. Symptoms might be:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or diarrhea
Our Creator COVID team and Council will be connecting to review guidelines and protocols and will provide an update to the congregation as changes occur. Thank you for your understanding and care for one another.
