COVID-19 Update

Our Reentry Plan

We’re back in person!

Step 1: Social And Distant

Begins September 13 at 10:00 am EST


If you are in an at risk category we ask that you stay home and participate with our online service on YouTube or Facebook. As always, live by faith and let peace be the umpire in all your decisions.

Please familiarize yourself with the steps we are taking while meeting in person to provide for a healthy environment.

Learn About Step 1


We Are Practicing Distancing
Upon arrival, please follow the signs and stay 6 feet apart. See here for River Kids info. Please wait for the host to guide you to your seat. Families or those who feel comfortable can sit together! In order to create a spacious environment, our seating arrangement has been adjusted to provide adequate 6ft spacing between rows in our auditorium.

We recommend getting to church a little early for this new seating process, and it’s good to be early for church anyway right? :)


One Entrance and One Exit
At the end of service, each row will be dismissed by our hosts who will lead you to the exit door. Please stay seated until your row is dismissed.


Masks
Although we are not mandating the use of face coverings, please feel welcome to wear one…and if you need one, we have a limited number available as you enter the service.


Outside Is the New Lobby
Before and after service, our hangout space is outdoors. Remember to respect the personal space of others by asking before hugging, touching, or getting in close proximity.


BYOC
Please bring your own coffee/tea/water with you to church. At this time our coffee and tea bar will be closed.


Sanitation
The facility will be cleaned before and after each service and high touch surfaces will be cleaned during service. Automated hand sanitizing stations are located at the entry and exit of the auditorium.

Bathrooms
Bathrooms will be limited to 2 people at a time. Please remember to thoroughly wash your hands.

At-Risk Attendees
We encourage anyone who is considered at risk to stay home during Step 1 and worship with us online.


Please Stay Home…
If any of the following applies to you, please stay home and worship with us online. Please let us know if we can pray for you or if you need any help.

○ You aren’t feeling well

○ Temperature of 100 or more in the last 24 hours

River Kids During Step 1

Check In
When you arrive, head to the River Kids check-in tent located in the parking lot. After a quick temperature check we will get them signed into their classroom.

During Step 1 we will not be providing snacks or drinks in the classrooms, but children are welcome to bring their own labeled water bottle.


Pick Up
After your row has been dismissed by your host, you will then circle around the building for River Kids pick up. Please follow the signs and wait on a socially distanced spot and the River Kids team will bring your child to you in the hallway. Once you have your child/ren, please proceed through the auditorium to the exit.
