Safety Guidelines

Updated on June 11, 2021:

We will continue to offer an online service for members who choose to worship from home.

Here are some standard practices we will ask everyone to follow. Remember, Wesley's Rule #1 is Do No Harm!

  • If you are not feeling well or if you have a temperature of 100° or higher, stay home!

  • You are encouraged to wear a mask. (Children 2 and under are not required to wear face coverings.)

  • Enter the building by using the front door on Lunt.

  • Upon entering, use the hand sanitizer provided at the door.

  • Practice physical distancing.

  • Children must remain in the pew with their family during the service. Pack an activity bag for your children if they will need books or toys to stay content.

  • Exit the building after the service by using the side door on Oakley.
