Safety Protocols

On Sunday, August 16, we will be back to our normal schedule of 9:00AM Sunday School and 10:15AM Worship. In addition to having every other pew blocked off, we will also have the two front sections of pews marked off for senior adults and those who feel they are in the most vulnerable category. These sections are also encouraged to enter and exit through the corresponding doors.


We will be evaluating based on the number of attendees the need to adjust our Sunday morning plans. Also, we initially thought we would resume Wednesday night activities beginning August 19, but the COVID-19 crisis has not subsided as much as we had hoped by this point, so we are continuing to suspend those until further notice.


All other protocols are still in place...

  • Masks are required for both Sunday School and worship (exceptions for those teaching, leading in worship, and those with medical issues that wearing a mask is ill-advised).

  • The campus is being sanitized and disinfected each week. The Sanctuary will be sanitized between the two services on College Sunday.

  • If you are sick or have symptoms, please do not come.

  • Please respect the six-foot social distancing protocol between households and avoid shaking hands and bodily contact.

  • Wash your hands before and after Bible study and worship services. Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the campus.

  • Please bring your own mask. But a few will be available at certain areas for Sunday School classes and in the foyer of the Sanctuary before entering for worship for those who forget to bring their own.

In an effort to protect the safety of our children and their families, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, we are putting forth the following guidelines. There is no way to be 100% sure whether someone will unknowingly carry the virus. If we do become aware of a child or volunteer testing positive for COVID-19, we will notify those who came into contact with that individual. We know that these precautions are tedious, however they are not optional because they are for the safety of our children. Until further notice, the nursery and preschool children will meet in the FLC. Look for signage designating Nursery and Preschool

You should NOT come into the building if…

  • You have a fever of 100 degrees or higher.

  • You have any respiratory infections, or have had a cough, sneezing regularly, had shortness of breath, vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours.

  • In the previous 14 days, you have had any contact with someone with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, are under the investigation for COVID-19, or are experiencing a respiratory illness.

  • In the previous 14 days, you have traveled on a cruise or internationally.
