What is open now?

Small Group Gatherings such as Sunday Schools, Children, Youth and other small groups will re-open on August 16, 2020.
 
If you lead a Small Group of any kind, please call or email the church office to let us know the schedule of your group. This is very important so that we can plan our schedule and anticipate the cleaning plan for spaces.

 

What should we expect when we come back to the church In-Person?

WORSHIP:
 
For the safety of everyone who is attending in-person: 
We will be performing temperature checks at the doors. We need to ensure that your current temperature is BELOW 100F°.
 
The Worship Team, Choir, handbells, among others, will lead the music at the services in the Sanctuary.
 
Three of our exterior doors will be open for entrance. The Front Sanctuary door on Ocean Blvd, and two doors at off of the rear parking lot leading towards the Sanctuary.
 
Just inside the doors, there will be hand sanitizer, masks and bulletins for you to pick up. Please pick up your own as you enter.
 
Our pews will be emptied of materials, like hymnals, bibles and registration pads. Words will be displayed on the screens, but please make use of your phone to send us prayer requests or let us know if you are visiting.
 
The facility will be cleaned between each service.
 
We highly encourage you to wear a mask while you are in the building. Our seating will be Socially Distanced. Please sit 6 feet apart from other family groups. We will have overflow seating available in the Chapel if needed when we reach Socially Distanced capacity.
 
When you exit the sanctuary, please exit expeditiously, and via the door closest to your seats. When you gather, please do so outside or in your Sunday School or Small Group room for fellowship. Do not linger in the Gholson Room or the Foyer please. This will help us maintain social distancing while in the building.

 

 

(What should we expect when we come back to the church In-Person CONTINUED):
 
SMALL GROUP GATHERINGS (SUNDAY SCHOOLS, ETC.):
 
Groups smaller than 50 may meet, Socially Distanced, inside the church. We are Strongly Encouraging Masks to be worn when inside the building.
 
Sunday Schools and Small Groups should let us know if you plan to meet, and where you plan to meet,  BEFORE MEETING, so that we can plan cleanings accordingly. 
 
You may enter the Parlor Side door, during the 10:00 hour, near the elevator (on the East side of the building) or through the Sanctuary Entrance on the rear of the building off the parking lot (South). We will be checking temperatures on Sundays as you enter. We need to ensure that your current temperature is BELOW 100F°.

 

Will the service be available to view Online?

We will stream BOTH the 9:00am & 11:00am services Live on Facebook and YouTube so that if you feel you are unable to attend for any reason, you can stay connected with the service of your choice.
