Welcome to the internet presence of the Spooner Church of the Nazarene. We are a friendly rural church in northern Wisconsin's vacationland. Whether you are new to the Spooner community, have been here for years, or are visiting over the weekend, we welcome you to our services.

The church board met Tuesday, May 19, 2020, and we decided that we will re-open and gather again for Sunday morning worship services starting this Sunday, May 24, at 10:45 am. We want to do this responsibly and as safely as possible, so we will follow the safety precautions listed below to help prevent the spread of possible corona virus (and other germs). This is not done out of fear or paranoia, but out of a concern and consideration for others and ourselves. If you would like to join us in person at the church for services then we ask that you respectfully abide by the precautions too. We will continue to have the Sunday morning service on Facebook so you can watch it live at 10:45 am (or at a later time) if you are not able to join us in person. Until further notice, we will not have in-person Sunday School, but Pastor Dave Cash will continue to lead this on Facebook on Sundays at 9:00 am. Coffee and Fellowship Time with Pastor Cliff & John will continue on Facebook on Sundays at 8:00 am.

Precautions for all who meet with us in person:

1. Practice physical distancing of six (6) feet between people not residing in a single living unit or household.
a. We will re-arrange or block off seating in the sanctuary to help with this 6 feet physical distancing, and an usher will assist people with seating as needed.
b. At the end of the service an usher will dismiss people according to row, back row first, to help maintain the 6 feet physical distancing.
c. We will not be using the smaller rooms on Sundays for now because/when 6 feet physical distancing would not be possible to maintain.
d. Remember to keep 6 feet physical distance if you need to use the restroom, even if that would mean one person in the restroom at a time.

2. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as frequently as possible or use hand sanitizer.
a. To use hand sanitizer effectively, wet hands thoroughly with the sanitizer and rub briskly all surfaces of your hands and nails until dry.
b. There will be hand sanitizer as you enter the church. Please use it as soon as you enter and when you exit.
c. If you need to use the restroom then please put the cover down on the toilet before flushing to prevent germs from going airborne. Please remember to wash your hands.

3. Cover coughs or sneezes into your sleeve or elbow, not your hands. If you forget and end up using your hands or you use a tissue, then please throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, especially with unwashed hands or when in public.

5. Avoid shaking hands.

6. Use of a mask or cloth face covering is optional but is recommended when physical distancing is impractical or if you feel safer wearing one when in public.

7. We will regularly clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces. After the service, designated church members will be assigned to clean specific areas or surfaces that have been touched or could have been touched.

8. We will be holding off on sharing communion together at church for now.

9. For now we will not have our usual coffee and goodies together at the church before the service.

10. The offering plate/can will not be passed around, but it will be left in the back of the sanctuary so you can put your tithes and offerings in it as you enter or exit the sanctuary. If you do not attend services in person, feel free to mail your tithes and offerings to the church.

11. We will not be using the hymnals in the pews for now, so we will continue to put the words to all the songs on the Power Point slides.

12. Please stay home if you are sick or have ANY respiratory or flu-like symptoms, or if you consider yourself high-risk for COVID-19 infection, or if you are concerned about your health and safety.

13. We'll do our best to follow all other public health recommendations as issued by the State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Washburn County Health Department, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
