Update: August 10, 2020
. Details for all 3 worship gatherings are outlined below. We continue to pray through and evaluate the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19. We continue to disinfect, wear masks, distance and follow the guidelines provided by Pinellas County Health Department and the CDC. We thank you for your patience and participation as we strive to lead with love and compassion for others!
If you are still feeling like you should stay home out of concern for your health or a loved one’s health…or if you have been ill recently, please continue to watch the service via the live stream on our YouTube channel or request a DVD. If you or a loved one in close contact with you has been ill, please join us online or request a DVD!
GATHERING INSIDE -
Please bring your face covering with you - if you forget or do not have one, we will have some available. In compliance with Pinellas County Ordinance No. 20-14 all persons must wear a face covering while indoors. Exceptions are given for certain religious activities and for those whose health situation prohibits the wearing of a face covering. Children under age 18 are up to the discretion of that person’s parent/guardian. Our desire in compliance with these regulations is to keep love, concern, and compassion for one another and our community a high priority.
We have removed every other row in the sanctuary and have distanced rows in the Meet & Greet to create space. We recommend following the CDC guidelines for social distancing in and outside of the building.
We encourage sitting on opposite ends of a row. Together, we can lovingly and respectfully ask for and grant the space that another feels comfortable with.
You will be greeted upon entering the main door with a warm hello. Hand Sanitizer and masks will be available upon entry.
Please give all the "air hugs", "air high fives", "air etc." you want!
Please DO NOT congregate and socialize in the lobby or in close proximity indoors. Instead, we encourage you to socialize outdoors prior to and after the service ends - please enter and exit the building efficiently.
We will not be passing offering plates. There will continue to be an offering plate/basket as you exit the building and outside as you exit the grounds.
Restrooms will be open - please do not congregate inside and minimize use unless absolutely necessary. Remember to wash your hands often!
At this time we will not be serving coffee, tea, or donuts.
There will be no nursery or Oak Ridge Adventure Kids until further notice. We invite families to sit together in the sanctuary or Meet & Greet.
There is a changing table/rocking chair that is available in our nursery, but our nursery will not be staffed or open for any other use at this time. Sanitizing wipes are available for your use before/after you utilize this space.
The building will be cleaned each week and all the surfaces will be sanitized. Although we will be cleaning/sanitizing before service, please try to consciously minimize the amount of surfaces that you touch and lean on.
