Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, whose birth we soon celebrate:
  As we prepare to begin the season of Advent in these unique times, we are looking ahead on our plans to provide meaningful worship alternatives for Christmas Eve. We recognize that many will want to celebrate Christmas Eve at home, while other will want to be here in person.
   As we plan, our goal will always be to provide a meaningful and Covid-safe worship experience for all who would choose to come for gathered worship. We will be providing on-line worship experiences for all who desire. We are also aware the Christmas Eve will also draw first-time guest whom we do not wish to turn away. We want to plan wisely, and we need your help.
   Please take time to answer the questions below so we may get an understanding of how you and your family are planning to share Christmas Even this year. If a particular question does not apply to you or your family, please leave it blank. The more people respond, the better our planning will be.
  Please answer freely and honestly. You are not committed to your answers (as both our world and your circumstances my change over the next several weeks).  Thank you for helping us as w e make our plans that will allow as many persons as possible to celebrate the birth of Jesus, whether at home or as we gather together. Thank you so much for your assistance.
