COVID-19 Worship

We began offering in-person corporate worship services on Sunday, June 7th for a limited number.  There is no obligation to attend if you do not think it is wise for you do so, and you may want to be especially cautious if you have a preexisting condition, are at higher risk, or are regularly interacting with those who do or are. We will continue offering online services on the ERC YouTube Channel on Sundays at 10:00am for the foreseeable future for those not attending in person.

As we have mentioned in previous emails and newsletters, we need to let love, charity, and humility guide our interactions with and opinions of one another as we ease our way into gathering again. In a world so divided, let us be a church that expresses unity and love—even in our diversity. 


Because the services are limited in number, you must sign up and receive an invitation to attend. Sign up here if you would like to attend in the month of July. Everyone that signs up will receive an invitation to at least one service. Depending on how many people sign up, you may receive invitations to multiple services.


  • Services will take place at 10am at different locations and with different limits as to how many people can attend. 
  • July 5th - Gary and Nancy Shaver’s farm (W8575 Hickory Court, Hortonville, WI 54944 – if you are attending,      make sure to plan for travel time to get there) – 75 person limit
  • July 12th and 19th – Telulah Park pavilion (1300 E Newberry St, Appleton, WI 54915) – 50 person limit (will increase if city allows)
  • July 26th – Pierce Park pavilion (1035 W Prospect Ave, Appleton, WI 54914) – 50 person limit (will increase if city allows)
  • We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week with individually prepared portions of the elements.
  • Services will be more casual than normal.
  • Those attending will need to bring their own chairs or blankets for seating.
  • Those attending are welcome to bring their own food to eat after the service.


Other Safety Precautions

  • Hand Sanitizer will be available.
  • Social distancing guidelines are to be followed (though we need to recognize that we are a young church with many children who will most likely interact with one another).
  • Masks are encouraged (not simply for your benefit, but for the consideration and care of others).
  • Families should stay home if anyone in the household has any symptoms.
