In accordance with guidance from the Oregon Health Authority and Washington County, we are able to safely resume in-person worship services. As always, services begin at 10:30 am, and end between 11:30 am and 12:00 pm. As with everything in 2020, services will look a bit different as we comply with the OHA guidelines:
- Three separate worship locations: Sanctuary and a live simulcast to Heritage Hall & the gym
- Maximum of 50 people per worship location (including staff/volunteers)
- Six feet of social distancing between households
- Hand sanitizer at each entrance
- Face coverings are required; we have disposable masks available if you need them
If you cannot or do not wish to wear a mask, you may watch the streaming service live via our website and YouTube. Additionally, we are broadcasting the service over 88.1 FM to our parking lot. You are welcome to "drive-in" and enjoy service in this way.
When you arrive, you can enter through the east doors for the sanctuary, the south doors for Heritage Hall, and the west double doors for the gym. The breezeway and entrances between the buildings will not be available at this time. Additionally, in order to maintain compliance with the OHA guidelines, we are asking that people remain in their area and also do not gather in the parking lot.
A Mobile Connection Center will be set up at each entrance with hand sanitizer, disposable masks, paper bulletins, etc. We are taking attendance, and any visitors will be asked to complete a brief connection card. In the Sanctuary, an usher will assist you with finding a seat.
Childcare will not be provided at this time, but families are welcome to use the library and narthex in the sanctuary, the Fireside Room in Heritage Hall, and the mirror room in the gym, if needed. Additionally, we will not be providing coffee, tea, or other beverages nor will the water fountains be available. You are more than welcome to bring your own drinks, though.
To ensure the safety of our attenders, but to also allow us to worship the Lord in song, we will be singing together corporately at the end of the service.
