The usher will guide you through the full sign-in process. It will include:

  • Sanitizing hands
  • Taking and recording temperature
  • Filling out screening form (if an electronic screening form was not filled out in advance)

    Yes. Some individuals leading the service, such as the preacher, will be able to take their masks off while physically distanced from others. Congregants in attendance are asked to follow the public health guidelines by wearing masks and adhering to social distancing.

    Will there be social time after service?

    Not for now. Lots of people in our church family have been connecting in smaller groups online and in-person indoor/outdoors. Talk to your small group leader about ways to connect. If you are not in a small group, sign up today!

    What will happen if the public health situation changes?

    If the public health situation changes, we are ready to make changes! We are constantly monitoring the health situation and soliciting medical advice as we update our plans. We are not motivated by the freedom we CAN take, but by the call of Christ to love our neighbour and city well. Therefore, we are fully prepared to return to fully virtual services if needed. Watch for emails, our website, and social media posts for any changes to our reopening plans.

    What happens if someone comes to church and later tests positive for COVID-19?

    When people arrive at church on Sunday, they will sign-in which will include their personal information. If we are told that someone in a service you attended has tested positive, you will be contacted.
