If you choose to gather in person for worship, here is what you can expect:
- Everyone who plans to attend worship should complete a self-check before arrival. This includes no temperature above 100.4 or not recently in contact with someone who has had COVID-19. If you or someone in your household is feeling sick, please join us for church online.
- According to current CDC guidelines, those fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks or remain socially distant.
- People who have not yet been fully vaccinated or are immunocompromised will still wear masks. When you attend worship in person, some people will be wearing masks and others will not. There is room for all to worship in a safe manner together. All are welcome to worship - those with and those without masks.
- Multiple hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the building.
- Communion is self-serve in prepackaged containers.
- Giving boxes are located in each venue to receive checks or cash.
- Each venue is cleaned utilizing a Clorox T360 system. An airborne cleaning agent adheres to surfaces and kills viruses and bacteria within minutes. It is safe to enter the venue within two minutes of a cleaning cycle. Following each service, bathrooms, children’s spaces, and each venue are sanitized.
- FirstKids (Birth-5th Grade) is fully open. Bring your children to participate. Masks on children are up to parental discretion.
- Student Life has events throughout the summer. Masks are up to parental discretion.
We look forward to seeing you in worship in person or online!
