We want everyone to feel safe. Our COVID-19 protocols are based on recommendations from the CDC, the Bishop, and the Virginia Conference. Here are the COVID-19 practices we will follow this week:
- Fairfax County and the CDC are currently strongly recommending that everyone wear masks at public events indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Please wear a mask during worship. People 2 years old and up who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear masks at all times. You may remove your mask to consume the communion elements.
- Please enter through Door #1. We will check you off a list of attendees or add your name, email, and phone to the list. You may exit through any door.
- Pews will be marked for social distancing. Please follow the ushers’ instructions.
- We will have printed bulletins.
- Offering plates will be in front; please leave your offering when you come forward for communion (we will continue to use the prepackaged communion packs). All undesignated offerings will go to the Operating Budget. If you would like to make a contribution to the Pastors’ Discretionary Fund or other designated fund, please use an envelope or make a notation on the memo line of your check. Giving envelopes and pencils will be in the pews.
- Please maintain social distance.
We hope you will join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. If you prefer, join us for the live-stream on Facebook and the website at 10:30 a.m. We will continue this schedule through the summer, making adjustments as necessary.

Find the Zoom link at www.annandalechurch.com/morningprayer or go to our Facebook page. You can download the liturgy at www.annandalechurch.com/morningliturgy. All are welcome to join us each weekday morning!
WORSHIP FOR ALL AGES
During our worship services, we have children’s moments when children can come up front to hear a special word from God geared for little ears and hearts.
We also believe God put the wiggles in children, so don’t feel you have to suppress them when in God’s house. However, the following options are available for your convenience:
- Childcare: Our nursery is staffed by caring professionals who love children and are strongly committed to their safety and security. Nursery care for infants through preschool-aged children is available from 8:45 a.m-11:45 a.m. on Sundays and during other church events. The times may change as we continue to navigate our way out of the pandemic. All childcare workers will wear masks and thoroughly sanitize the room before and after each use. The nursery is located in room 207 on the same level as the sanctuary. Rocking chairs are also available outside the sanctuary if you prefer not to take your child to the nursery. There are also a small selection of toys for our littlest friends available in a cabinet in the atrium; see one of our greeters if you need help finding them.
- Worship bags: Even the most creative and interesting worship experience can be a long time for children. Worship bags are available just outside the sanctuary for children to use during worship. The bags include coloring pages, small toys and games, and no-mess crafts. Please remove used pages and return the bags so they will be available for the next Sunday.
CURRENT WORSHIP SERIES
“Anchorman: Hope According to Hebrews.” The book of Hebrews is a beautiful sermon that was written to encourage a people who were experiencing a crisis in their faith. The inevitability of persecution was rising, and with that came fear and a loss of hope. So the preacher writes to remind them that God has consistently taken the initiative to make Himself known throughout the ages, that He is a God who speaks, and that in these difficult days He has spoken fully through his Son. With beautiful relevance for today, we are reminded Jesus is still the final say of the Father and the Anchor of our souls.
