safety guidelines for gatherings

Below you will find a set of recommendations from our COVID-19 Safety Taskforce, that allows both small and larger groups to gather on-site. These guidelines have been put in place for the health and safety of all who will gather. Group leaders and participants will decide whether or not to gather in person. When gathering in person, accommodations will be made to ensure people can also attend virtually if needed (via FB Live or Zoom).  

COVID-19 guidelines for the health and safety of all who attend gatherings:

  • It is expected that everyone wear a mask while on church property. Worship/prayer leaders who need to be unmasked in order to lead, will maintain extra distance from other's gathered. 
  • A minimum of six feet of distancing is to be maintained at all times as much as possible. This requirement does not apply to family members, those living in the same household, or those who have chosen to regularly see each other/interact outside of our community (ex. for car pool or child care purposes). 
  • Physical contact is to be avoided with anyone not considered to be a family member. Physical contact includes, but is not limited to, handshakes, frontal or side hugs, elbow touching, and high fives.

  • All those gathering are required to bring their own seating. If you will participate from your vehicle, vehicle must be turned off.
  • During gatherings, the building will be open for access to the restrooms. We ask that people use those one at a time to maintain physical distancing as they move in and out of the building. 

  • If weather (heat and/or rain/thunderstorms) makes gathering outside impossible, small groups can move inside to spaces that will accommodate their group size socially distanced. ***Applies to small groups only.
  • For everyone's safety, if you feel sick, think you might be sick, or aren’t sure if you are sick, you are asked to stay home.
