In-Person Worship

In-person Worship Safety Recommendations

Updated June 22, 2020

 

Because our church cares deeply for our members and wants to keep everyone safe, we ask that you please comply with the following recommendations. Please read the recommendations below and then sign up to the right (or below on mobile) to attend in-person. If you are not willing to follow the recommendations below, we ask that you please continue to join us online, instead of in-person.


Arriving at Church

On Sabbath morning:

  • Please enter through the main entrance. Doors will open at 10:30.
  • Both sets of lobby doors will be open, with temperature checks and health screening questions (listed below) being asked by healthcare professional members at each door.

  • We ask all attendees (age 5 and above) to bring a mask and wear it to cover both your nose and mouth throughout the service. We will have a limited number of extra masks on hand if needed, as well as hand sanitizer.

  • We ask that people continue with social distancing, 6’ apart always. Unfortunately, that means no handshakes or hugs. There will be 6' line indicators outside the church and every other pew will be blocked off. Ushers will help to seat you and there will be specific instructions given when it is time to exit (to minimize bottlenecks).

  • Only one person at a time can use each bathroom, so please be patient with the process. Consider using the bathroom at home before you come.

  • We are concerned about the safety of using the drinking fountain. Please bring your own bottle of water as needed.

  • Please sing with your masks on and keep your mask on throughout the service.

  • There will be no printed bulletins at this time.

  • Only one family in the Mother’s room at a time. 

  • We will not take up an offering but will have offering plates placed just inside the sanctuary on tables.

  • We ask that people keep to the foyer, sanctuary, the two main bathrooms, and the mother’s room.

  • We encourage everyone to continue practicing social distancing, leaving the building right after the service and not standing and chatting with each other inside.


Health Screening 

As you enter the church, you will be asked the following questions by healthcare professional members:

In the past 14 days, have you had: 

  1. A new fever (100.4°F or higher) or a sense of having a fever?

  2. A new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition?

  3. New shortness of breath or difficulty breathing that cannot be attributed to another health condition?

  4. New chills that cannot be attributed to another health condition?

  5. A new sore throat that cannot be attributed to another health condition?

  6. New muscle aches (myalgia) that cannot be attributed to another health condition or specific activity (such as physical exercise)?

  7. A new loss of taste or smell?

  8. Contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19?
