We are thankfully able to meet in-person for our Sunday Church services! God willing, we will continue meeting throughout the winter.
As per New York State restrictions, we are allowed to fill the sanctuary to 25% capacity. The sanctuary capacity is 436 people, so we can safely admit 109 people. The average attendance has been 35-50 people since we opened up again.
We are working very hard to clean and sanitize the church every week, much thanks to our Building Manager, Joanne Collar!
Sunday Morning Reminders:
We request that all members of the congregation please mask at all times when in the church building and walking around. During worship, you must wear a mask while singing (covering both nose and mouth). The first two rows of seats are blocked off, so that the worship team can sing unmasked safely. Please stay properly spaced from other families (at least a six foot radius from all congregation members that aren’t in your family unit).
Please take your printed bulletin home with you to eliminate COVID-19 risk. Take a moment after the service to meet some new people (but please remember to stay socially distant)!
Adult Sunday School still meets from 9:45-10:45 every Sunday, led by Paul Robar. They are currently reading the book, Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World, by Dr. David Jeremiah. Everyone must be masked, and socially distanced around the set-up tables.
Children’s and Teens’ Sunday School started up again in November 2020, and teachers are holding sessions from 9:45-10:45 in the hallway classrooms at their own discretion.
Sunday Evening Bible Study:
Paul Robar is leading a bible study at 6:00pm on Sunday evenings in the fellowship hall, with the same set-up as Sunday School.
For those who still wish to stay at home:
We are still recording Sunday School, Worship and Sermon videos every week for congregation members who wish to stay at home. You can find the the Worship and Sermon videos under the “Sermons” tab on this website. All Sunday School, Worship and Sermon videos are on our YouTube Channel: Potsdam Nazarene
We are still collecting offering every Sunday, and you can give by check or cash in the offering plate at the back of the sanctuary. You can also give online or by mail to be completely contactless.
Prayer Cards are on the table in the back of the sanctuary and in the seat pockets of every pew chair. Please feel free to use them to share your prayer concerns with the pastor by placing them in the offering plate. You can also email your prayer requests to email@example.com
Communion is held on the 1st Sunday of each month, so that families can partake together. We are offering pre-packaged cups of grape juice and communion bread wafers.
