At Brecksville United Methodist Church, we are all about creating safe spaces for every person to grow with God and with one another. 
As we start to emerge from the pandemic, we realize that there are those among us who cannot be vaccinated - including children and those who are immunocompromised.  In coming up with our new standard, we are attempting to maintain a safe space for all.

We ask that those who are not vaccinated continue to mask. 

Here are the updates to our policy.

  • “Protect & Respect” - wear a mask when walking around the building.

  • Masks are required in corporate worship inside. Masks are optional in worship outside.

  • Group meetings can unmask by unanimous consent.

  • When around kids, who cannot be vaccinated, please wear masks.


In situations where the decision to unmask has been made, food & drink are permitted. Clean up is the group’s responsibility. Please make sure that the room is as clean as you found it.  Clean up all spills, coffee grounds, crumbs, trash, etc. 

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE
  • Grab your mask and a grace-filled attitude!

  • If you’re sick, please stay home and worship online.


  • WHEN YOU ARRIVE

    • If you are vaccinated, masks are optional for the outdoor worship service. If you are not vaccinated, please wear a mask at all times.
    •  
    • Stay at least 6 feet from those outside your household or “pod.”

    • Ushers will show you to your seats to ensure distancing. 

    • Sanctuary seating is limited. If needed, overflow seating will be available in Fellowship Hall with a simulcast of the service on the big screen.

    DURING AND AFTER WORSHIP
    • We’ve gone paperless!  Visit our website and social media (@BrecksvilleUMC) for upcoming events. Download a copy of the bulletin from the weekly enews, from the QR Code at worship, or at https://linktr.ee/BrecksvilleUMC. Check in online or with an usher—no attendance pads.

    • Childcare will be available in the Nursery during both services.

    • Sprouts (a special program for kids during worship) will be provided at 10:00.

    • You’re welcome to sing as you feel comfortable, but keep your mask on!

    • Restrooms will be open, limited to one person at a time.

    • If you’d like to visit after service, please head outside.


    WHAT IF I DON’T FEEL READY TO WORSHIP IN PERSON?
    • The only thing changing about online worship is the time! Join us live online at 10 am.
