WE ARE BACK
COVID-19 "RETURN TO GATHERING" POLICIES
 

 

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage

one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

 

Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)

 

 

It Is Time To Return Back To Church!

We are so excited to gather again this weekend with you in person.  For the safety of all, we must comply with CDC guidelines.  Here is what we will be doing to mitigate risks:


Here's What Our Service Will Look Like And What You Need To Know:


  1. We will have 2 options for seating - inside the sanctuary or outside on the patio (we will have two large tents to provide shade).

  2. Household members must sit together to maximize space.  Others will have 6' beside them.

  3. By choosing to come to service in person you understand and agree that risks are involved and have not had known contact with anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 14 days, you're not ill in anyway, you will wear a face covering, and agree to comply with requested guidelines.




PLEASE NOTE

REQUESTS WHICH WE WILL NEED TO REQUIRE


____________________________________________


We request that you not attend if you are sick or high risk or have a compromised immune system.


-  Our service will continue to be live-streamed ONLINE for those who are sick, high risk, or are just not comfortable yet being in larger groups.
