Our 'Responsibly Reopening' Efforts
Servant Church is taking every reasonable & recommended precaution to ensure our attendees' safety, social distancing, and sanitization. The following is a summary of our efforts:
- SOCIAL DISTANCING: All are encouraged to maintain social distancing of 6 feet, whether standing or seated.
- PHYSICAL CONTACT: We discourage any physical contact, outside of family groups.
- MASKS: Masks are encouraged, but not required. Non-masked individuals must be especially careful to practice safe distancing.
- PPE AVAILABLE: masks, alcohol wipes, non-latex gloves, hand sanitizer accessible in lobby.
- DESIGNATED DOOR OPENERS: Doors will be opened by designated & appropriately protected volunteers, to ensure touch-free building entry.
- ASSISTED SEATING: Ushers will seat attendees as is prudent to maintain distancing standards.
- PEW DISTANCING: We will be roping off every other pew, to ensure safe front-to-back distancing for attendees.
- 'PLATELESS' OFFERINGS: We will not be 'passing the plate,' as is customary, but will provide a contactless way for people to give.
- CONTACTLESS DISTRIBUTION: For both the indoor & parking lot Communion Service, distribution of the self-contained elements will be done in a contactless manner.
- SANITIZING BETWEEN SERVICES: Our trained cleaning crew will be busy sanitizing the backs of pews & pew areas, knobs & surfaces, and additional measures... before, between, and after EACH service or event at Servant Church.
Servant Church will NOT be offering supervised nursery care until further notice. However, parents are more than welcome to utilize the rooms -IF- they are aware of the following:
- PROPER SUPERVISION: Children cannot be left unattended. Parent/guardian must accompany & supervise child at all times.
- BRING YOUR OWN NECESSITIES: We have packed away all toys/diapers/snacks for safekeeping until the nursery can reopen fully.
- SANITIZE BEFORE & AFTER: For the protection of all, we have diligently sanitized our rooms and equipment! We ask your help in wiping down your area of use both BEFORE & AFTER your usage. Appropriate wipes & cleaner are provided. Ask for assistance, if needed.
