Due to COVID-19 and our efforts to try to keep everyone safe and healthy, we have to limit our worship space to and estimated 50 to 60 people on a Sunday. In order to help us coordinate, plan and determine exposure, we would like to know if you will be physically present at worship or streaming the service as usual. Below are our expectations if you decide to worship with us in person and a reservation form to help us to prepare the worship space to keep everyone healthy, safe, and engaged in focusing on worship rather than worrying about the virus.
In person worship service time:
Live AND YouTube, in Person: 9:00AM, starting Sunday, July 12, 2020
This is the only service that will be open to attend in person. Why? Because we need to have time to disinfect and wipe down all surfaces in the Sanctuary. Disinfecting the worship space will take place in the week between worship services.
Rebroadcast of live service on YouTube will take place every Sunday at 11:00AM for those of you who like to get a little more sleep.
Worship preparation checklist:
- Bring your face mask
- Be prepared to social distance by 6 feet
- Bring a sweater- it will be cool to start off, but we will be turning the air handlers off so as not to circulate the air in order for gravity to do its job in keeping us safe, so it will get a little warmer toward the end of the service.
- Use hand sanitizer before and after entering the sanctuary, and/or wash your hands.
- Let the ushers help you by opening doors and serving you.
- If you don't feel well, please rest at home and stream the service at either 9:00AM or 11:00AM.
- If you are a member of an "at risk" population, please consider streaming at either 9 or 11 AM from home.
Just a quick reminder that we are still in the process of tweaking and tuning our resumption of in person services. Please help us to perfect what we are doing by offering constructive evaluations and suggestions. A lot of thought and planning has gone into this important time, and we thank everyone for their patience and endurance.
Welcome to the website of the United Methodist Church of Hyde Park, 1 Church Street, Hyde Park, NY 12538.
We are an active and responsive part of the greater Hyde Park community, reaching out and welcoming in the name of Jesus Christ. We are a missional church whose primary goal is to form dedicated Christians who embody Jesus' world view not only when gathered on Sunday, but in every facet of our lives. To this end we sow seeds of care and hope in our world, seeking to shore up the blessings of our community and perfect it in the loving nature of our faith.
We have programs aimed at learning, fellowship, discipleship, missions, you name it, but these are simply a means of witnessing to a greater love and sacrificial commitment that we have to one another and our world. This love and commitment cannot be held behind doors, while it can be celebrated there. This love and commitment welcomes in, but goes out to meet the wanderer on the roadside.
We would love to welcome you to spend some time getting to know us. You can do that as easily as looking over and plumbing the depths of this website. But really knowing us is helping us to both celebrate and encourage the greater Hyde Park community through the outreach we have. You are always welcome to come worship with us at any of our three Sunday morning services, which are joy filled Holy Spirit led encounters with a living and vital God.
Blessing to you on your journey, and know that God loves you so much that He died to prove it.
Our Mission Statement:
"Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we are a worshiping community, seeking the will of God, teaching the word of God, and sharing the love of God."
