We are so excited to be back meeting in person! We have compiled a list of helpful information for you to read over so you know what to expect when you arrive. We are doing the best we can to be thorough with the information we received, but please let us know if you have any further questions as you read through this.
1. Sanitization & Cleanliness
The building is sanitized both before and after the Sunday Meeting, as well as during the week. You will see masks and hand sanitizer around all parts of the building for you to use.
2. Social Distancing & Masks
We understand there are varying levels of social distancing, but we as a public space, need to honor the guidelines for social distancing & mask policy as best as we can. Masks will be required both before and after the meeting, as those are times when we are having face to face conversations with people.
We will not require you to wear a mask while you are at your seat during the message and worship, because everyone is safely social distancing. Please be mindful of other people’s comfort levels as well. Masks are required for Kindergarten age and up. We will have masks available for those who do not have one.
3. Auditorium Set-Up
In the auditorium we have chairs set up in multiple size groups. The groups of chairs have a distance of 6ft between each other. We do ask that families try and sit together as this will maximize the amount of chairs and space.
If you get into the auditorium and there is not a space that fits your family size, please let a Host Team member know and we can get some more chairs to accommodate you! Please do not move the chairs unless you get help from a Host Team member.
4. Kids Ministry
For the time being, the only Kids Ministry Class we have reopened is our Nursery (6 months – 2 years). The older children (3 years +) will stay in the meeting with the adults for worship and the message. They will be provided with some paper and some colors, but would also encourage you to bring whatever you feel like would occupy them during that time!
Nursery Information: Your child’s health is the utmost importance to us and we have specific protocols that are followed each week that want to make you aware of:
- The Nursery will be open from 10:25 AM – 11:35 AM
- The Nursery will be sanitized both before and after the Sunday Meeting
- There will be no Kids Ministry Check In Desk. You will need to bring your child(ren) down the Kids Ministry Hallway to the Nursery where they will be checked in
- Upon arrival in the Nursery, each child will have their temperature checked before being admitted. If their temperature is higher than 100 degrees, they will not be allowed inside.
- Teachers will wear masks during the following times: Checking in your child, changing a child’s diaper, and holding a child
Please do not bring your child in the Nursery if they have been around or in contact someone that has been recently tested for COVID-19 or has COVID-19, has a temperature of 100 degrees or above, or is exhibiting signs of sickness.
While our nursery is open and available, this does not mean that your child needs to attend. You may choose to continue to keep your child in the service with you!
5. Worship & The Message
We will continue to have a shortened meeting for the time being. It will go from 10:30 – 11:30 with a time of worship, announcements, and a message from the Bible.
6. Parents with kids
We know and understand it is extremely hard to maintain social distancing with kids, especially when they haven’t seen their friends in so long. But, we do ask that you keep your kids right beside you and help them maintain social distancing.
7. After the meeting
After the meeting is over, you are welcome to talk with people as long as you maintain social distancing. You are welcome to stay in the auditorium, talk in the Coffee Bar area, or hang outside.
Thank you for working with us over this last year – we have had a lot of transition! We know and understand that this is all new for everyone! Your safety is the utmost importance to us and as we continue to get more information regarding Covid-19 and social distancing, we will update our policies accordingly.
