WORSHIP PROTOCOLS

 
DHLC is one of God’s Churches and we believe we are called to keep the church available for those who would like to worship in-person. Our responsibility is to make the church as safe as possible and to communicate multiple worship options to the congregation. The congregation has the freedom and responsibility to make their own decision to worship at church or at home. We cannot please everyone; however, we trust in God that we have been led to provide a safe environment for those wishing to worship in person.
 
MASKS FOR THE PROTECTION OF OTHERS 
 
  • Masks are required when entering the building and may be removed after being seated in the Sanctuary. Walking around in the Sanctuary without a mask will not be permitted.
  • The Northwest section of the sanctuary is designated as a mask mandatory section.
  • Some seating will be marked as unavailable to ensure appropriate physical distancing.
  • After each service, masks must be worn after leaving your seat and to exit the Sanctuary and the building.
  • We ask everyone to please exit the Sanctuary as quickly as possible. Cleaning of the Sanctuary will take place immediately after each service.
  • The new air filtration system will be kept on during all services.
  • We ask those that wish to visit with friends to do so outside the building.
  • Keeping the building as safe as possible is our main interest and in doing so depends on our congregation following the protocols during these difficult times.

 

VACCINATIONS AND DHLC’s COVID PROTOCOLS 

 
It has truly been wonderful to see more of our friends and guests return to in-person Worship again! We welcome all who want to return to services and meetings during the week. With so many in the community becoming fully vaccinated, the council has received numerous questions regarding our COVID protocols. The council has reviewed the current protocols and voted to maintain the practices with the commitment to revisit the subject again next month. Weekly online services and Bible Fellowship will continue so that all our members, friends, and guests may worship and participate if they are not yet ready to return in person.
While many have completed their vaccinations, there are still many who have not yet decided about the vaccine or have not completed the full vaccine regimen. Desert Hills Lutheran Church is open to everyone. No one will be turned away from DHLC services, committees, or meetings based on their vaccination plan. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is a very personal choice and we respect everyone’s right to make their own decision.
