Worship Guidelines

We meet for worship each Sunday morning at 10:30 AM in the sanctuary. We ask that those who worship in-person with us observe the following guidelines:

Arrival
When you arrive, you will enter through the Main Entrance adjacent to the handicap ramp. You will be met by a greeter who can answer any questions you might have.

Entering the Sanctuary
When you enter the sanctuary, please pick up a worship bulletin at the rear doors.

We will only require that you wear a face covering (mask) in worship when the COVID-19 transmission rate for Allegheny County is rated as HIGH by the CDC. You can use this link to check the rating each week. This status will fluctuate and we will use this practice to offer the most amount of safety as we gather.

What to Expect during Worship

  • We are continuing to pass the peace – verbally – without moving around the sanctuary.
  • We are not passing the offering plates during worship, but they will be available at the narthex entrance to the sanctuary, for those who do not contribute online or by mail.
  • Our KidZone Activity bags are available for our younger worshippers.

Leaving the Sanctuary
At the conclusion of worship, you may exit the building via any of the sanctuary exits.

We are so happy to see so many of our members and friends returning to GPC for in-person worship and other church activities after having received their vaccinations and boosters. But we also thank you, in advance, for your patience and understanding as we continue to seek the best path for a return to normal at GPC.

Finally, please do not attend worship in person if you have any cold or flu symptoms or have been around someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last week. We now livestream each Sunday’s worship service. To find and view the livestream each week, please click on the “Livestream Worship” box on the GPC homepage.

If you have any questions, please contact the church office or any member of the church session.
