Health & Safety Precautions

As a church, we are committed to honoring the health guidelines and suggestions being set forth by the CDC along with our local, state, and federal governments. The below are additional measures being taken as we carefully reopen our building for in-person gatherings.

We ask that all attendees honor social distancing protocols recommended by the CDC during their time on the property.

Cleaning of the facility has and will continue to take place at a level at or above all guidelines set forth by the CDC, including but not limited to all surfaces in the auditorium, lobby, and restrooms.

Our team has worked hard to ensure that this weekend’s services are, for all intents and purposes, “touchless”. If you choose to worship with us in person, you won’t have to open doors or pass offering or communion. While with us, we also ask that you respect one another’s social distancing preferences by not assuming someone wants to hug or shake hands.

All staff & volunteers will undergo temperature checks & COVID-19 screening questions before serving. In addition, staff who will be in close contact with large numbers of visitors will be required to wear a mask and gloves.

Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building for your use.

Coffee and tea will not be served, however, please feel free to bring your own.

KidCity & City Students programming will not be offered at this time. We suggest that you only bring children with you who are able to sit through the entire service.

Pre-packaged communion will be available for you on the way in or you may bring your own.

If you have a fever, are experiencing any COVID-like symptoms, have traveled to a hot spot or have been in close proximity to someone who is exhibiting symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you please join us online for services this weekend.
