FAQs

Why are we being required to wear masks?

  Wearing a mask is a way to love and protect our neighbor - our brothers and sisters - from this pandemic. Several factors support this position. First, the primary way the virus is transmitted appears to be through the air and this transmission can occur despite social distancing if people are in a confined space for a length of time. (For example, a worship service, especially if there is singing.) A mask will significantly diminish this sort of spread.

  Also, it appears that at least one third of these infections are spread by people who have no symptoms. Some are recently infected and have not yet become sick and some who are infected never become sick and unwittingly continue to infect others. This is why we are wearing masks, even though they are inconvenient and uncomfortable, as are many other acts of love.


Why are we being asked to register?

  Registering in advance will help us arrange the worship center in such a way that social distancing can be maintained. Pre-registration will also help us to not exceed the recommended capacity of our facility.


What happens after the first 180 people register? Will they not be able to regather for worship?

  At this time, we can only have 180 people. Keeping the service smaller allows for better social distancing and other precautions.


Why aren't we offering Nursery or Teach Me to Worship?

  While we always encourage children of all ages to join us in corporate worship, for the time being it will be the only option. For the safety of our children and volunteers, children will need to remain with their families during this time. We look forward to phasing these programs back into our service time in the future.
