A Plan for Returning to In-Person Worship

Updated August 2021

As we continue to navigate the complexities of being the Church in a pandemic-world, we will continue to offer both in-person and online worship.

In an effort to provide a meaningful worship experience while honoring one another’s safety, we are working hard to ensure the safety of all who enter the building. We also acknowledge that returning to an in-person format is not for everyone, so we will continue to live-stream worship on our website and Facebook pages.

Below are some details on what this looks like:

1. Worship service details

  • Both the 9:00 and 10:30 services are available for in-person participation.

  • We will also continue to offer both the 9:00am and 10:30am services online.

2. Wearing Masks

  • In accordance with the most recent CDC and C-UPHD guidelines, ​we ask that all people entering the building wear masks.

3. What about kids?

  • We will have a children’s sermon during the service.

  • We will also offer Sunday School (for kids over 5) and the nursery (for kids 5 and under).

  • Children are asked to wear masks and distance while in the building. 

  • Our Sunday School/nursery volunteers will also be wearing masks.

4. Other protection procedures

  • Seating will be distanced and is currently set up as such.

  • We will maintain a 25-30 foot distance between the speakers/singers and the congregation.

  • There will be no coffee or social gathering time before or after the service.

  • If you’re are not feeling well or have been in close contact with someone who has been ill, please stay home and worship online.

  • Further, if you aren’t able to abide by these guidelines, we ask that you also stay home and worship online.

  • Please note that this list is not exhaustive and that the staff and volunteers will continue to plan for a variety of other details regarding safety and sanitation.

Lastly, we want to thank you for making Faith a wonderful community of Christ. We are in an extraordinary time, and you have excelled in caring for one another. Further, thank you for your trust in us as we seek to be good stewards of everyone’s health and wellness as well as meet people’s needs.
