COVID-19 Management

Thank you for your patience as we navigate the necessary changes during the pandemic.  It is our goal to keep you safe. To accommodate social distancing, a limited number of people are permitted to attend the events listed below. Masks are required in the building for everyone ages 5 and up.

Registration is necessary to attend any of the following services/studies in the church.

    • We suggest that if you have a compromised immune system, please use discretion concerning attendance, and check with your doctor.

  • No more than two people at a time will be permitted into each restroom.
  • Hand sanitizing dispensers will be placed throughout all areas of use.
  • All areas of use will be cleaned by professionals before and following the Bible Study, including the disinfection of heavy transit areas and high-touch surfaces (e.g., doorknobs, restrooms, microphones, shared instruments).
We are excited to gather together again, but we strongly feel that we need to take solid precautions. For those who may think that the precautions are a needless overreaction, we ask that you sacrifice your ideal for a season, out of love for others who believe the precautions are necessary. Of course, you can. We know you can, and we know you will.
