May 10th Re-Opening Church Survey

May 10th Re-Opening Survey

Next Sunday, May 10th, we will be re-opening the church for our 10:55 worship service. It will be held in the main Worship Center. We will be taking precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our church community including:

      • No Sunday School or childcare until further notice.
      • Only two entrances: front doors of Worship Center and handicap doors.
      • Marked seats for you to sit and ushers showing you to your seat.
      • Restricted number of people allowed in the main Worship Center based on seating capacity and social distancing guidelines.
      • No passing the offering plate. Instead, greeters and ushers with masks and gloves will take the offering before and after service at the doors.
      • Hand sanitizer at entrance and exits. No other part of the church will be open.
      • The Worship Center will be cleared within 15 minutes of service being over and no congregating.

Below is a survey to help prepare for this coming Sunday's service.
