Sanitizing: Before every service the sanctuary seating and all high-touch surfaces will be disinfected. We will only allow people in the room after that procedure is complete, usually around 20 minutes prior to the start of the service. We will continually be disinfecting and sanitizing surfaces in the restroom and other high-touch areas to reduce possibilities of transmission. Sanitizing stations will be available throughout the entrance and auditorium.
PPE: Staff and volunteers will adhere to CDC guidelines.
Seating: Seating in the auditorium will be limited and accommodate families sitting together. Congregants will be distanced 6 feet apart in adherence to State guidelines.
Printed Materials: We will limit the distribution of printed materials. Connection Cards, Sermon Notes, and Bulletins will be available online or on the church app.
Communion: When we do communion, it will be the pre-packaged variety with no passing of the communion elements.
Offering: During Step 3, we will not pass the offering bags during the service. You are encouraged to give your offering online, in the box on the way out of the auditorium or through the mail.
Boiler Room Prayer: will meet onsite on Sunday mornings at both campuses (7:45am near the playground at Maple, and 8:30am near the Children's wing at Palm).
Modified Greeting: All doors will be propped open so that attendees will not need to touch door handles. We will not have greeter volunteers initially but our ushers and staff will be ready to welcome you with a friendly wave and a smile!
Modified Ushering: Our ushers will assist you in finding your seat and maintaining a count of attendees.
Egress Considerations: Sections will be dismissed one at a time so we don’t have a flood of people at the same time.
Staff and Volunteers: Any staff or volunteer who feels sick, or has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days will not be allowed to serve. All other staff will wash their hands and sanitize regularly.
