Please observe the following precautions and governmental guidelines:
If you feel physically unwell in any way, DO NOT come to worship in person. Live-stream of services will continue to be available.
If you are over age 65 or have underlying medical issues, prayerfully consider worshipping with your church family via live-stream, not in person.
Maintain 6’ distancing from all non-family members at all times.
Wash your hands after using the restroom.
Cover your cough with bend of elbow or disposable tissue.
Masks are optional; disposable masks will be available if you forgot your personal mask at home and wish to wear one.
There will be no potluck meals in the foreseeable future.
To comply with regulations requiring an attendance record for illness-tracking purposes, we will be ‘making a list & checking it twice’ at services each week. These lists will remain on site unless there is an incident of COVID-19 among our attending church members.
To help you to maintain appropriate 6’ distancing
Church seating will be in every other row-sit where the green tape is: see the photos. Family units should sit together, but spaced 6’ from non-family members.
Don’t shake hands, or hug. Smile a lot!
An offering receptacle will be available as you exit the sanctuary—place your tithes & offering in that. Consider utilizing the on-line giving option.
Deacons will be dismissing FROM THE BACK. Please remain in your pew until you are dismissed by the deacons.
Please refrain from gathering and chatting in the narthex either before or after the services. Make your way into and out of the building reverently and quickly.
To help minimize our sanitization processes and still comply with regulations
Use the provided hand sanitizer as you enter the church building.
Please use ONLY the main church entrance. Church main entrance doors will be unlocked at 9:45 a.m. Side entrances will remain locked; PLEASE DO NOT use your entrance door keys to access other entryways.
Water fountains will be inaccessible-if you require water, bring your own water bottle.
Pew rack items have been removed; you may want to bring your own Bible.
There will be no children’s Sabbath School programs on site on Sabbath mornings at this time.
The library, fellowship hall and children’s hall and rooms are off limits.
