COVID FAQs

Are people required to wear a mask during services?
Masks are optional, feel free to wear one if you want to.

Will my temperatures be taken as I enter the campus?
No. However, please self-screen at home, and if you have any signs or symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and worship with us online.
 
What if I’m not comfortable coming to a service yet?
That is okay! We know everyone has a different level of comfort, so please do what you feel is best for you and your family—whether that’s watching at home or joining us in person.
 

How are the facilities being cleaned and prepared for worship services?

  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available on the welcome table and ushers will encourage attendees to use prior to be seating.
  • Extensive cleaning and disinfecting procedures will take place before and after every service.
  • Masks will be available.

What will the service be like?
All the things you’re used to in our worship service will still be there! We will be using individual pre-packaged Communion elements that you may pick up prior to being seated.  Communicants will remain seated for the celebration of Communion, and each person will be instructed to throw their empty cup in the trash as they leave the service.  Initially, music will be pre-recorded and projected on the screen, and we’ll ask worshippers to sing in their hearts rather than aloud.

How can I give my tithe or offering to the church?
You can give online at shalomcommunitylc.com, mail it to Shalom CLC, PO Box 418, Starbuck, MN  56381 or place in the canister located on the Welcome Table at Sunday’s worship service.

Will the online experiences you’ve created still be available?
Yes! We plan to continue online experiences. 

Is my small group allowed to meet?
Shalom Church is reopening groups to meet in person! Because your safety is important to us, it is recommended that in-person groups be limited to 20 people and group leaders will encourage members to follow CDC guidelines (e.g., handwashing, physical distancing, staying home if sick). Groups can also continue to meet virtually.
