COVID-19 Info - Social Distancing Guidelines
As we resume services, we want to follow, as best we can, appropriate recommended health practices. This includes the following general guidelines:
- We want to continue, as best we can, social distancing of six feet between people not of the same household.
- Handshaking and hugging are discouraged.
- Wearing masks are welcomed (though not required).
As you come into the building, the doors will be propped open (weather-permitting) to help eliminate many people touching door handles. As you enter into the worship auditorium, there will be take home communion for you to pick up in the upper foyer area. Please pick up communion and hold on to it for the time when we will partake of it during the service. Also, please note that there will be baskets located at each door in which you can place your offering. These measures will eliminate passing of communion trays and offering plates between many people.
As you enter the auditorium, we ask that your family sit together. Every other pew will be blocked off to help us spread out appropriately during the worship service. We also ask that we fill the main floor of the auditorium first and use the balcony for overflow only.
At the conclusion of the worship service, we will dismiss in an orderly manner to help encourage appropriate social distancing.
Finally, we want to express that if you feel you are high risk, please do not feel pressured to return to in person services. While we are working to implement best practices for the general population, we realize that there are some who have health concerns that put them at higher risk. We understand if you feel you need to wait a little longer before returning to in person services.
In addition, please note that our Sunday evening service (at 7:00 pm) resumes this coming Sunday as well, where we plan to continue our study in the book of Revelation. It will meet upstairs in the main auditorium as well.
We are very thankful to be able to resume our in person church services as a church family. We realize this is an unusual time and it necessitates some out of the ordinary, different practices for us. We ask that each one make an effort to abide by these things at the present time in order to help us best resume church services in a manner helpful for everyone.
