On-Site Gathering Guidelines

Personal Health

  • Confirm you and your family members do not have a fever. If you have had a fever in the last 48 hours, do not attend.
  • Sanitize your hands with soap or sanitizer. Prepare to utilize hand sanitizing stations at the building, if needed.

Loving Your Neighbor

  • Masks are encouraged. If you forget your mask, a limited supply is available by asking an usher. 
  • Do not attend if you or a family member:
    • Has been in close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, is experiencing a cough, shortness of breath or sore throat.
    • Has had a fever in the last 48 hours.
    • Has had a new loss of taste or smell.
    • Has experienced vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours.
    • Suspects that they might have been exposed to COVID-19.

Steps to Attend a Worship Gathering

  • Only the Main Entrance (Rockland Road side of the building) is used for entering the building. All other entrances are locked.
  • Do not congregate together in the Front or Back Lobby, hallways, classrooms, aisles, parking lot or anywhere else on campus. Make sure you and your children observe principles of social distancing.
  • Take a single serving communion pack upon entry.
  • Enter the Auditorium and find a place to sit.
    • Use every other row, as indicated.
    • Family units sit at each end of a pew with at least six feet between units. Only sit with your immediate family and do not come closer than six feet to anyone not in your immediate family.
  • After communion:
    • Ushers pick up trash as well as the offering using the empty rows. Congregants are not passing trays.

Minimize your movement throughout the facility.

  • No water fountain use. Bring your own water, if needed.
  • Coffee is not available.
  • Restrooms available for emergencies only.
  • Doors are propped open to minimize exposure to surfaces.

After Attending

  • Use side doors to exit as instructed at conclusion of service.
