As COVID-19 continues, we thought it would be helpful to have our church's guidelines publicly posted. We would like to emphasize that these guidelines apply to everyone regardless of vaccination status. All protocols are subject to updates as recommended by the Task Force.

Operations

 

  • Our COVID-19 Task Force meets regularly to discuss the infection rate in our area and what it means for our operations and protocols.

  • The church office is open Monday-Thursday from 9-3. Our Office Manager is also available by email on Fridays.

  • Everyone who enters the building must wear a mask at all times. Staff members completely alone in their offices are the ONLY exception.

  • Staff, counselors, and scheduled community groups are permitted in the building at this time. All others who wish to enter must make an appointment.

Worship

  • All attendees must have their temperature taken at the door and fill out a contact tracing sheet before leaving.

  • There is a pause on congregational singing, praying aloud in unison, moving around during the passing of the peace, and church childcare.

  • Masks and social distancing are required. Attendees may only sit with members of their own household group. Bulletins are placed in the pews to mark the approved, socially distant seating locations.

  • The worship service has been adjusted to keep it to around 45 minutes.

Community Groups

  • Scheduled community groups of up to 20 attendees may meet for up to 45 minutes.

  • Community groups are required to do their own contact tracing and temperature taking.

  • Masks and social distancing are required.

  • No food and drink are permitted in any meeting.

  • All groups which are able to meet over Zoom are encouraged to continue doing so.
