Open Table Worship - 11:00 am on Sunday!
We are so excited to begin worshipping together again!
What is Open Table and who is it for??
Open Table is a service for everyone designed around engagement and community, while still maintaining healthy distancing practices. Housed in our CLC, this service will include prayer, special music, an interactive message, and community discussion.
This is a great worship opportunity for small groups, Sunday school classes and friends who are yearning to be together to attend one service and interact with each other!
What about families with KIDS?
We now have Family Rooms! Childcare and nursery during worship are not able to be offered at this time, but we want to remind you that children are ALWAYS welcome at our church! We realize that managing children during worship can be difficult so we have an exciting offering... Family Rooms!
The rooms upstairs along the balcony of the CLC will be childproofed and designated for families. You can reserve a room for your children to play, color, eat, etc. while parents have chairs right outside the doors on the balconies to participate in Open Table and be close to their kids.
Have a family that you are already in contact with? Reserve a Family Room together and your children can interact and play while you sit together for service!
What about masks and social distancing?
At Hilldale UMC, we believe in Loving God, Loving People, and Making This World a Better Place!
As we live into this vision while caring for public health, we are utilizing the latest information from the scientific community, public health organizations, and government leadership while applying all of that to our local situation.
With prayer and these sources as our guide, we ask all attendees to honor the following guidelines that care for our most vulnerable and wider community:
- If you plan on attending, please RSVP. This allows staff to prepare ahead of time and set tables at safe distances to honor each family and prioritize health.
- When you RSVP, we will tailor your table to your family's unique needs like fun items for kids, fidget spinners for dads, and the like ;)
- Due to the new county safety measures, masks are expected at all of our services. Please wear a mask as you enter and exit the building, and at your table unless you are eating, so that the service, community spaces, and walkways are safer for all those in attendance.
- In order to keep our facility sanitary for other missions and services, this service is limited to the CLC areas. Hallways, classrooms, restrooms, and offices outside of this area are not open Open Table.
