Re-gathering

Under the guidance of local, state, and federal health professionals, we have been praying and compiling guidelines for groups to start meeting in-person again. Right now, we are focusing our guidelines for small groups such as lifegroups and Home Churches. We will update you further when Sunday Services begin in-person again. If you are sick, please stay at home!
Since we believe that church meets twice a week, once on Sundays and once during the week, we believe our lifegroups fall under "Service" guidelines. A "Service" requires regimented spiritual activity. Regiment spiritual activities can include prayer, Bible reading, ministering to people, etc. 

Regathering Guidelines

Outdoors

The meeting(s) will be held outdoors. At this time, there will be no indoor meetings.

COVID Free

Each person gathering is COVID-negative and symptom-free (fever of 100 F or above, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat, chills, repeated shaking with chills, headache, muscle pain, or a new loss of taste or smell).

Masks

Each person will wear a face covering at all times during the meeting. The CDC recommends wearing a mask with 2 layers of fabric. Please do not wear a mask with a one-way valve.

No Food

No food can be distributed or consumed during the meeting. People can drink water, but please bring your own water bottle from home.

Space

Each person will stay at least 6 feet away from each other (8 feet if singing or talking loudly).

Waivers

Each person signs a liability waiver prior to gathering. This waiver is effective for all meetings of the same nature. If a minor attends with a parent/guardian present, they do not need to sign a waiver. The parent/guardian assumes all risk. For events with registrations (like Encounter), your waiver is included in your registration.

Comfort Level

Every effort is made to creatively include those who do not feel comfortable to meet in-person. Our Zoom accounts will remain for the duration of the COVID-19 season.
