RE-OPENING SAFETY GUIDELINES:

Please take a moment and read over these guidelines.  The more familiar we become with them now, the less we will have to spend precious worship time going through them.  Thanks!

GENERAL:

  • We will be keeping an online meeting option for those who are uncomfortable or unable to attend service in person.

  • We will be Re-Opening with worship assembly only, no children or small groups will be meeting at this time.  We are asking parents to keep their children with them in worship.  We will add additional ministries back as we are able to do so safely.

  • We will be offering two identical services to encourage a greater chance of social distancing. Our service times will be 9:00 and 10:30.  In order to help ensure there is space for everyone, we will be asking everyone to add their name to a service list. 

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE!  A team of Cleaning/Sanitizing Crew will prepare the facility in the following ways, making every effort to ensure our facility is a clean and safe environment. The areas that we will be using will be the sanctuary and the hallway immediately behind the sanctuary. 

  • Using chemical disinfectants as directed and allow for the proper dry times on all touched surfaces.

  • Having multiple services, we will clean between each service. Wiping all hard surfaces and spray disinfecting the soft services.

  • Station Bathroom Attendants to sanitize/disinfect after use. 

  • Post signs reminding guests about not shaking hands and doing non-contact greetings.

  • Blocks off rows in our sanctuary to ensure social distancing.
