In compliance to the CDC guidelines and Governor's directive, we've developed a reasonable approach to the use of face coverings that allows for a safe and encouraging worship experience. Similar to restaurants, we are requesting that you wear a face covering when entering the building, when leaving the building, or when roaming the building. Once you’re in your seat, (whether it be a Sunday service or Bible study) the use of a face mask is at your *discretion. We will not require face masks for children (ages 12 or younger).
*As a general practice, we encourage you to be sensitive to others when it comes to wearing a face mask, especially when in proximity with those who are elderly or in a higher-risk category.
We will continue to practice the same physical distancing guidelines as prescribed by the CDC. Each service will feature marked seating. For example, our pews will be labeled "First Service" and "Second Service." We ask that you sit in a pew labeled accordingly. Our ushers are available to help you find seating as well.
We firmly believe that fellowship plays a critical role in the church community. When socializing in the auditorium, we respectfully ask that you follow CDC guidelines for physical distancing. Likewise, we respectfully ask that prolonged fellowship take place outside in the parking lot and not in the auditorium. When the service is over, you will be dismissed by rows.
Hand sanitizer will be available at the "Welcome Center" when you arrive. We respectfully ask that you sanitize your hands before entering the auditorium.
We are working diligently to provide services that are as "contact-free" as possible. During services, there will be no physical greeting time. We respectfully ask that you refrain from all forms of physical contact, including, but not limited to, shaking hands, hugs, etc. Instead of passing the offering plates, we will have three lock-and-key offering boxes in the back of the auditorium. On Sunday’s when we celebrate Communion, there will be pre-packaged elements provided for you in the foyer.
Limited Building Access
There will still be limited access to the church building during Sunday services. All areas of the church building will be restricted except for the auditorium, nursery areas, and bathrooms. We will continue to have "The Hub" open for parents who need to tend to their child's needs during the worship service.
These safety guidelines will be implemented for all ministries during the week including but not limited to: Men's Bible Study, Ladies Bible Study, Celebrate Recovery, etc. As always, we strongly advise those who are in a high-risk category to stay home. Also, if you're sick, stay home. Sermons will be uploaded to the website every Sunday following the 11 am service. There will also be an online Life Group option during the week.
Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding, and adherence to these new guidelines. We will keep you updated with any changes.
With great excitement we look forward to helping people find and follow Jesus this fall!
