Covid Protocol: Following Covid protocols for large in person gatherings, we will require everyone to be masked as they enter the building, and remain masked throughout the meeting. We will have each individual or family sign in with their names as well as contact info, in case we need to do contact tracing. We will not be asking for proof of vaccination, though we do highly recommend everyone get their vaccine.
Inside the building: The capacity of the space is 210 people, however protocols have that amount capped at 105. The room is quite spacious, and we will have the chairs spaced out throughout the room giving everyone plenty of distance between.
Outside the building: There are 2 large uncovered decks directly accessible from the front of the room, which if you prefer you could stand or sit on, and still be able to hear what is going on inside. There are also 2 smaller outdoor spaces at the back of the room that each have a small covered area.
Entrance: There is one main entrance to the facility that faces east and that has both stairs and an elevator to the second floor. BUT should you want to avoid going through the building, you can also access the room via an outside staircase. Sign in will still be required for all attending.
During the meeting: At any given time (weather permitting), we will have 2 or more doors open to the space we are in. That allows for good airflow and ventilation within the space. We will also have live worship happening, and you are welcome to sing along, but masks must be kept on until further notice. We will also be having communion, and it will be distributed in a way that minimizes contact with others. We will NOT be having coffee time for the foreseeable future, but you are very welcome to bring your travel mug full of your favorite morning drink to sip throughout the meeting.
Children: Our children will be in the service with us during the opening and worship time, after that they will be outside and also using the space we have downstairs. When at all possible, we will have the kids outside in a covered area and on the playground. If you are bringing children, please dress them for the weather.
