Worship Frequently Asked Questions

Due to Covid-19, is sign up required?

As of late April 2022, registration is not required unless it is a high volume service.  Please look over the current Church Service Protocols for more information. You may call our office as well.

Is masking/distancing required?

For Worship and other events in our sanctuary, we ask Vaccinated individuals to wear masks until they are seated, and then they may remove them. We request all non-vaccinated people to wear masks inside all South Church buildings. Starting April 24, masks will be optional for vaccinated individuals.

I am unable to or uncomfortable coming to church at the moment. Are there worship alternatives?

Yes. We currently offer a livestream/Youtube service that can be found on the homepage, or here.

Is the church physically accessible? Do you assist with other needs?

Yes. There is a ramp provided in the back of the church, and a chairlift to access the 2nd floor sanctuary. We also have headphones as well. Our ushers/deacons are most willing to help.

Can children of all ages come to services? Do you have a nursery?

Absolutely. We typically offer church school during worship starting September 26th. Please see the Christian Ed page for more details. Unfortunately the nursery is not accessible at this time.

Are you Open and Affirming? What is your stance on diversity?

South Church is a proudly open and affirming congregation. Please read our diversity letter.

Do you hold Communion?

Communion is held the first worship service of each month. Communion will be served using the single serving cups through April. Beginning in May of 2022 we will offer communion with separate elements and deacons will pass the service trays to distribute.  We will also make the single serving cups available for anyone who would prefer to receive that way.

Is there live music? Am I allowed to sing?

There will be live music during services, distanced from the congregation.  Musicians and choir are vaccinated. Singing will be allowed without masks.

Can I make an offering?

We welcome offerings during services. If you would like there is an offering collected.  Or you can hold up a hand to indicate that you prefer not to have the plate passed to you.  If you'd like to make an offering/donation outside of worship, please call Sarah at 207-967- 2793.

How can I help with worship services, such as flowers, ushering, etc.?

Please contact our office and we'll be happy to connect you with one of our Deacons.

I have attended worship services and feel South Church is a fit for me. What is the next step? How do I become a member?

We would love to hear and help you move forward- please contact our minister, Susan Townsley, and she will fill you in on any details. There are usually meetings for potential incoming members.
