During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making every effort to ensure your safety. Following the recommendations of Minnesota Annual Conference and the Minnesota Department of Health, we have decided to open for one in-person worship service at 9:00 am, beginning Sunday, July 19. The 10:30 am worship service and other ministry events will continue to be online.
Beginning July 19, we will have in-person worship at 9:00 am. We will continue to live-stream our 10:30 am worship for those who wish to worship at home, at the cabin or the campground. Join the service HERE.
For those wishing to worship in-person at Hilltop at 9:00 am, we ask that you follow a few simple guidelines to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep each other in good health:
Stay home if you or anyone in your household is sick or has symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell.
Persons who are at higher risk for severe illness (elderly or underlying health conditions) are strongly encouraged to stay home.
Maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet between people from different households at all times (entering, exiting, sitting, and any activities during the service). We will seat one family household per pew and maintain 6 feet between family groups.
We strongly recommend that you wear a face mask, as a way to care for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Do not touch items often touched by others if possible.
Please cover coughs and sneezes and wash or sanitize hands as needed.
You can hum along with the music if you feel the need, but we do not encourage singing at this time because it is a higher risk activity.
