Located just three blocks from the beautiful
Hampton Roads Waterway!

Wythe Presbyterian Church in Hampton, VA, seeks to GLORIFY GOD by inviting the Holy Spirit into our worship. We seek dynamic and enriching worship by adding a variety of approaches to our services.

We seek to GROW DISCIPLES by welcoming and nurturing all who come to church. We applaud diversity and desire our congregation to mirror the diversity around us. We are working to create skills to attract and assimilate visitors so that they too can grow in faith and love. We are constantly creating opportunities to reach the unchurched around us.

We seek to GIVE of OURSELVES by serving God’s people. We seek to reach out to those in need in our congregation, community and world. We actively strive to increase opportunities for mission locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

SPECIAL NOTICE ABOUT RESUMING WORSHIP

We are excited to announce the Session has approved plans for outdoor worship to begin on June 28th and run through September 27th. The Task Force had two goals in determining the guidance for outdoor worship: to provide meaningful worship that supports the community and fellowship of WPC and to ensure a safe environment that reduces transmission risk of COVID-19 while complying with state and local laws and best practice recommendations. 

 

As a result of COVID-19, gathering together for worship will look and feel different. First and foremost, as a community of faith, we are called to take care of each other. We will have a modified and abbreviated service. Please be patient and understand that the following decisions have been made in the interest of everyone’s safety. 

 

Here are the protocols we’ve established in order to hold our outdoor worship: 

  • Worship begins at 9:00 am; the service will continue to be streamed on Facebook Live and uploaded on the church webpage. 

  • In the event of rain or predicted rain, services will be held indoors and live-streamed via Facebook to the congregation - only Worship leaders will be inside during indoor Worship and will follow the guidelines for indoor, online Worship. That decision will be made by 7:30 am on Sunday morning and will be posted on the Facebook page and announced via email.

  • Please stay at home if you are ill, feeling ill, or are not yet comfortable returning to in-person Worship.

  • All present must wear masks - exceptions include children under 2 and Worship team members (musicians and speakers) when speaking and singing.

  • All present must maintain physical distancing by at least 6 feet - no hugging, handshaking, etc.

  • Worship singers/speakers will be 10 feet from the congregation and each other (family groups can stand together) 

  • There will be no corporate singing or speaking - the congregation is allowed to hum and we will be attempting to find other creative ways to express ourselves. 

  • Please bring your own seating (chair, blanket, etc.) To reduce risk, we will not be providing chairs. 

  • The lawn will be painted to designate spaces for seating; find a space and make yourself comfortable. 

  • The playground will be closed for play. Children will stay with their parents. Feel free to bring noiseless items for your children- the service will be shorter than our traditional Worship. 

  • The building will remain closed. 

  • Weather appropriate, casual clothing is encouraged; feel free to bring sunscreen and bug spray if you need them. 

  • Worship sheets will be emailed by Friday for the upcoming Sunday. Feel free to print and bring it with you or view it on your electronic device. 

  • Please take home what you bring. 

  • Coordinating outdoor Worship is no easy task, if you are willing to volunteer for a Sunday to assist in set-up and take down (8:00 am-10:15), please contact Donna or a member of the Worship Task Force. 

 

We look forward to being together again for Worship, even if it looks and feels a little different. The Task Force will continue its work to create a plan for returning for Worship in the sanctuary.

 

Thanks!

Blessings and Peace, 

Charity, David, George, Jeanne, and Pastor Donna
