Worship Reconvening Plan
Below are some steps we have taken for a Safe and Joyous return to worship.
1. The following people are encouraged NOT to attend services until they are completely comfortable doing so – (we will be offering the Live Worship Service On-Line)
a. Anyone with a significant health risk and the Elderly.
b. Anyone not yet completely comfortable gathering in large groups.
c. Anyone with symptoms such as Cough, Fever, or Respiratory issues.
d. Helpful hints on how to attend worship via our website can be found below.
2. Other Precautions…
a. All Exterior Front Entry Doors AND all interior foyer doors will be open during arrival to minimize contact.
b. The wearing of Masks is optional, however there will be a section dedicated to those who choose to wear Masks.
c. The ROWS will be increased from 22” apart to 32” apart. This will allow the servers to move through each row without a problem.
d. There will be Hand Sanitizing Stations set up in the Auditorium and in the Foyer
e. Everyone is “strongly encouraged” to sit closely ONLY with your own family members, and to consider distancing between family units.
f. We will (for the foreseeable future) forego all member Meet & Greets or other mingling that would fly in the face of social distancing – including, but not limited to the Coffee and Snack time.
g. We will have all common areas cleaned before Sunday services for the foreseeable future.
h. Exiting the building will be done row-by-row using Ushers and all available exit doors will be utilized – including the North and South auditorium Exits.
3. Communion will be served as follows…
a. The bread will be placed in communion cups, just like the grape juice.
b. The servers will walk down each alternating row and allow the members to take a cup from the tray. (bread and juice respectively)
c. The servers will follow the same procedure for the collection plates.
d. After the collection, servers will follow the same procedure with baskets for collecting the empty cups.
e. Servers will wear gloves and masks.
Classes… Sunday Morning classes will be offered some number of weeks AFTER we have reconvened for Worship . This will allow time to determine the need for classroom sizes based on the new attendance levels AND give people some time to ease back into social gatherings. Wednesday evening classes will also resume when Sunday morning class begin.
