Aldersgate United Methodist Church





Aldersgate is committed to outdoor worship services as long as the weather permits. We encourage you to bring your own chairs and celebrate the great outdoors. The Outreach/Nurture Committee believes an outdoor service is safer for all and it will provide us a few more options. CDC guidance says even the fully vaccinated can get COVID-19 or a variant.  It?s not unlike a flu shot. Those who get the yearly flu shot can still get the flu. The CDC also says COVID spread is more likely indoors than outdoors. For those reasons, we plan to continue outdoor services. We simply believe it is safer for all in our congregation.

At outdoor services mask wearing is OPTIONAL unless when singing. Yes, there will be singing. Masks must be worn when singing.  If weather forces us inside, as per the Northern Illinois Conference, masks must be worn for the entire service and there can be no singing.

As Illinois Health Department and Conference guidelines loosen, we can look to return to the sanctuary. Until then, we believe outdoor worship is the safest, best way to worship as a church family.

Thanks, Outreach/Nurture
