NEW Sunday Morning Gathering Protocols:

Now that both the Town of Manchester-by-the-Sea and the State of Massachusetts has lifted mask mandates, our Church Council determined this week that beginning today:

Attendees are no longer required to wear masks in the Sanctuary. You are, of course, fully welcome to continue to mask if you wish.

We will no longer continue obtaining contact info for attendees for the purpose of contact tracing.

Hand sanitizer will still be available in the Narthex should you wish to use it.

There will continue to be no formal Offering. Attendees are invited to place any offering they wish as they leave Worship in a plate which will be placed at the back of the Sanctuary.
