Road to Reopening
Praying. Planning. Preparing to return to our sanctuary in 2021
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
WHEN YOU ARRIVE TO CHURCH
Our sanctuary doors will be open for service Saturday mornings at 12 noon but you’ll want to arrive before that, around 11:30am. We have some new protocols in place and getting in church won’t be as simple as parking your car, walking in, and sitting down on your favorite pew so give yourself time.
You’ll need to start at the annex for the drive-thru temperature check and complete your health questionnaire. Then, you’ll pull around to the main parking lot, go in through our mahogany doors (elevator available for seniors/handicap) and wait to be seated by our team of ushers and greeters. As a reminder, masks are required as you enter the building.
Once you enter the foyer, please follow the direction of our ushers. Families or those who rode in the same car together, will be seated together. The ushers will walk you to your seats. Our center aisles will be used as entrances into the sanctuary, while our outer aisles (near the windows) will be used as exits from the sanctuary.
The two doors on either side of the pulpit cannot be used during this time. If you need to utilize the baby room, we have limited capacity to one family at a time and if you need to use the restroom, the lower level restrooms will be open with limited capacity (2 at a time). At this time all water fountains, our fellowship hall, and lower level classrooms are closed.
Once service ends, ushers will release all guests row by row, starting from the back of church (near the glass doors) and working up to the front of church (by the pulpit). We are asking that you use the outer aisles (near the windows) to leave church, exit through the glass doors or elevator (if needed) and back through the main doors.
As a reminder, the fellowship hall, lower level classrooms, and water fountains are closed. The restrooms at the lower level are open with limited capacity (2 at a time). Once you have exited the building, there is no re-entry. Please make sure you have everything with you when exiting the building.
As you pull into the annex, you will be asked the following questions by healthcare professional members.
In the past 14 days, have you had:
A new fever (100.4°F or higher) or a sense of having a fever?
A new cough that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
New shortness of breath or difficulty breathing that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
New chills that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
A new sore throat that cannot be attributed to another health condition?
New muscle aches (myalgia) that cannot be attributed to another health condition or specific activity (such as physical exercise)?
A new loss of taste or smell?
Contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19?
