Re-opening update

Friends of Spanaway United Methodist Church,

Following new guidelines from Bishop Elaine Stanovsky et all, we are now able to open for In-Person Worship. You are invited to join us for worship at Spanaway UMC. We would love to have you join us, if you feel able and comfortable to do so. We will continue to live stream our services online via Facebook Live and will also post the recorded part of our services on our website:

If you attend in person, you will be asked to observe certain safety protocols, most of which you may be familiar with already. Please come prepared to answer some questions, have your temperature taken, sign in and maintain social distancing. Please enter the building shortly before the service starts and, for now, leave the building after the service. Feel free to visit with each other in the parking lot. We encourage you to come a little early, since the screening and seating process may take some time. We will open the building at 10 am and plan on starting the service at 10:20 am!

As decided & voted on at the Admin Council meeting on 23 June, SUMC will change its mask policy as of Worship Service on 4 July.  The policy will be in line with the current CDC guidance and is subject to change as CDC guidance changes or the District dictates:

-Mask not required for individuals that are fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

-3 feet distance between households will be maintained at all times.

-Singing is now allowed by the congregation while inside the Church.


Questions or concerns:  Please contact the Admin Council.

We will continue sending bulletins before the service. You may wish to print a copy for your own use and bring it to church, since we are trying to limit contact between persons due to the pandemic. The bulletin will also allow us to distribute a list of Joys and Concerns.  We hope to see you in person this Sunday!

Blessings! Pastor Samara Jenkins.
