Auditorium

  • Ushers will meet family units at the auditorium doors and seat them from the front to the back of the auditorium
  • Families will be seated every-other row for both services, and we will switch rows for second service so that each seat is only used once a week.
  • Families/household units will be seated together with 2 seats in between each household, with spacers placed in empty seats
  • There will be no materials in the seat backs, and no communion
  • Aisles will be measured/widened to ensure that safe distance can be maintained by those entering and exiting and those seated
  • We will run the air conditioning and fans to bring in fresh air, and possibly leave auditorium doors open
  • Dismissal will be handled like a wedding to minimize people passing each other in the isle/seat area.

Order of Service

  • There will be no communion or live prayer time, but people will be able to text a number to request prayer. Response time will include corporate worship
