COVID-19 Procedures

Creating a Safe and Healthy Place to Worship

Of primary importance to us is the desire to provide both necessary biblical ministry and personal safety for you and your family.  We are in regular communication with our denominational leadership and local health authorities as to current best practices.   It is our sincere desire to display the grace, mercy and love of Jesus Christ as we seek to protect the most vulnerable.

Worship Experiences

Online Experience is Sunday at 9:00 AM on  our website
On-site  Sundays at 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM 
We ask that anyone who chooses to worship with us on-site agree to the following:
  1. I will worship from home if I or a member of my household is sick with any flu-like symptoms such as: fever, coughing, shortness of breath, or body aches.
  2. I will help stop the spread of germs by frequently washing my hands (or using hand sanitizer), covering coughs and sneezes, and avoiding touching my face.
  3.  I will practice physical distancing by maintaining a distance of 6 feet from anyone not in my household as much as possible.
  4. I will follow all directional signs for designated entrances, exits, floor markers, and seating signs to keep physical distance from others.
  5. I will refrain from any form of physical greeting (handshake, high five, hug, hand on the shoulder) with someone not in my household.
  6. I will maintain physical distancing while socializing and keep my conversations to less than 15 minutes.
  7.  If I have children, I will keep them near me and help them abide by physical distancing.
  8. I will wear a face covering (mask) to honor my state and church leaders.  (Exemptions apply)
  9. I will worship the Lord with all my heart, soul, and strength.
  10. I will pray for our community.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
