IN-PERSON WORSHIP IS BACK :-)
We are excited to come together again! Below are some things you should know if you are choosing to worship on-site as we make every effort to comply with health and safety guidelines. It is going to look different for awhile but we are still trusting that God will do great things as we gather together.
SEATING: During worship gatherings, our buildings will be limited to 50% occupancy (as of 6/10) with an additional overflow space experience outside. If you are planning on worshiping outside feel free to bring your own lawn chair. Inside, we have rearranged chairs to accommodate social distancing and are asking that people leave 3 chairs between households.
FOOD: At this time we will not be able to provide food :-(
CHILDREN'S MINISTRY: Beginning July 12th we will offer Kids Church during the message. In an effort to make this as safe as possible right now it will only be offered for ages 3 up through those entering 1st grade to help with social distancing. Sanitation stations will be available upon entering, children will be asked to sit on circles that are reasonably distanced & we will ask that the same parent who dropped off their child would also be the one picking them up.
SANITATION: Prior to Sunday we will sanitize all common touch areas throughout the building and will work to re-clean these areas throughout the morning.
MASKS: MN state guidelines (20-81) required masks while indoors. The new guidelines give many instances when masks can be removed such as if you are "testifying", "speaking" (10.c), "eating or drinking" (10.f), "communicating with an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing" (10.h). The guidelines also state that Children under the age of 5 (8.b), in children's church (12), anyone who will be up ministering on the stage (10.c) and people with certain medical conditions (8.a) do not have to wear a mask. Under the guidelines set by the state the church does not enforce mask wearing nor question why someone is not wearing a mask (15.e). Times are hard. Let's continue to cherish are corporate times of worship together.
OTHER: We are encouraging fellowship to happen outside & are encouraging no contact greetings. At this time we will also not pass out bulletins to reduce common touch points.
IF YOU FEEL SICK/ILL: If you feel sick or ill please stay home and worship online.
In-Person @ 9am.
Online Live Stream Message @ 9:30ish
Hope to see you this Sunday or in the near future :-)
