Building Safety Precautions
  • Building doors propped open for the duration of the morning, facilitating air flow and reducing touch-points

  • Greeters will wear masks and meet people outside/at the doors to help direct and welcome people
  • No offering taken (you can give online here, or use the drop boxes at the rear of the sanctuary)
  • Sanctuary chairs/rows spaced further apart for social distancing, to the extent possible
First Service
  • Masks required for every person over age 2, at all times
  • Limited singing

  • Coffee fellowship at 10am in the Connection Center for those desiring additional time to visit before the service
  • Children’s Ministry available for infants – 4th grade
Children's Ministry
  • Children’s Ministry is now being offered during the 10:30am service only. We have two classes available:
    • 4 years and under in the nursery wing, may be dropped off on arrival
    • 5 years – 4th grade, meets outside or in a large room upstairs, will join parents for worship service and be dismissed after the Scripture reading (approx. 10:45)
  • A stringent sick policy will be enforced – if any child appears feverish or registers a temperature over 100.4, has a runny/congested nose, cough, complains of sore throat/headache/muscle aches, we will ask you to please take your child home
  • Children’s Church for the older kids consists of a Bible story and brief discussion time, snack and water bottle, and activity time (craft or game inside, or playground)
  • Parents, please provide a sippy cup/bottle for your child in the “4 and under” class, as they may have trouble with water bottles
  • Activity booklets and prepackaged crayons provided each week for those who choose to remain in the service
  • Volunteers and children are not required to wear masks (this decision will be left up to each family)
  • We encourage you to talk with your kids about these changes and what to expect before coming to church, including that some adults will be wearing masks
Positive Test Response Plan
  • We ask people to let us know if they test positive in the week after attending a service
  • In the case of a positive test result from someone who attended a service, we will determine the best course of action based on the person’s exposure to the congregation on that particular Sunday.
  • While maintaining confidentiality, that course of action might include, but is not limited to:
    • Informing specific congregants of their possible exposure to COVID-19 while at church. Those specific people may be asked to stay at home the following Sunday. 
    • Informing the entire congregation of their possible exposure to COVID-19 while at church. If needed, we would close in-person services the following Sunday. 
    • Depending on the exposure, other mid-week gatherings may also be postponed. 
    • We ask anyone who is experiencing possible symptoms of COVID-19 to stay home and livestream the service (https://youtu.be/o6Z1mhqOY0o).
