Re-Entry Plan for Weekly Worship Services

We are very excited to share that we will be LIVE every Sunday inside the sanctuary to worship together. We are confident that doing so is safe at this time and would like to welcome anyone that is comfortable to attend in person. Understandably some will choose to participate online and the blessing is regardless of where you are we will all be worshipping and hearing the word of God together as a church family. Although it has been wonderful that our services each week continued to “feel” like our church it has been a difficult time of not gathering together in the church.  We also know that we are still in a time of uncertainty and we will take every step to ensure we do our part to keep our congregation healthy and we’re prepared to make adjustments as needed. 

Wear a Mask

All attendees and staff must wear face coverings or masks while inside and while entering and exiting places of worship or otherwise participating in in- person services, except where a person is unable to wear a face covering or mask because of a medical or disabling condition.

For children between age 2 and 5, the wearing of a face covering or mask is at the discretion of the child’s parent or guardian. Children under the age of 2 should not wear a face covering or mask

Social Distance

Attendees who are not part of the same immediate household must be seated at least 6 feet apart. Members of the same immediate household are permitted to sit together and less than 6 feet apart.

Hand Washing

Hand washing stations, including soap and running water and alcohol-based hand sanitizers are available throughout the church building.

Stay Home if You Feel Sick

If you are feeling sick, are exhibiting any of the following symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell), or have potentially been exposed to someone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19, you should worship at home as well. A potential exposure means having household contact or having close contact (within 6 feet) with an individual with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time (over 10 minutes) while the person is symptomatic or 48 hours before symptoms developed.

Keep Your Kids with You

We will not have nursery but as always kids are a part of our church family and belong with us in the sanctuary! It’s fine if they need to move about and don’t forget you can hear the broadcast downstairs if you or your child need more space. Families are encouraged to worship together whether online or in person.

Bring Your Own Food and Drinks

No refreshments will be served before, during, or after the worship service. If you need your caffeine fix be sure to bring your own with you.
