GATHERING GUIDELINES

BEFORE YOU COME

  • If you have experienced any symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days such as high fever, dry cough, loss of smell and taste, sore throat, muscle pain, or chills, please remain home and watch the live-stream at 10 AM. In addition, please submit a prayer request so we can contend for your healing.

  • If you have high-risk factors, please consider remaining at home and watching the live-stream at 10 AM.

  • If you have been recently and knowingly exposed to COVID-19, please consider remaining at home and watching the live-stream at 10 AM.

  • There will be no KidMin classes or nursery initially so please bring any necessary worship tools/activities from home for your children to use during service.

  • A note on masks: Wearing masks is not required although it is encouraged by the CDC. If you would like to wear a mask, feel free to do so. We will leave this decision up to your own conscience and judgment and will honor whatever decision you make.

 

WHEN YOU ARRIVE

  • Please maintain social distance (6 ft of space) on your way into the church building.

  • We ask that everyone enter through the front doors of the church building. We will have a church leader there to greet you and to hold the door open to ensure a “touchless entry.”

  • After 100 people have entered the building, we will invite additional people to attend the next service in the following hour. We understand that this guideline will probably feel a bit awkward. We ask for grace and flexibility as we do our best to navigate the 100 person max. guideline and to show care for those who've already arrived. 

  • If you are asked to come to the next service, we recommend grabbing an apple fritter at Daylight Donuts, picking up a drink at Sonic, or going to the park. You could even listen to worship music and pray together in your car, taking some time to prepare your heart for what God will do. We should have room for everyone to gather as long as we spread everyone out between the three services.

  • We have set the auditorium up with wider rows (6 ft distance). When picking your seat, please allow three empty chairs between your family/household and others when seated in the same row.

 

WHILE YOU ARE HERE

  • Please practice social distancing with those not in your immediate family/household.

  • If you DO want to hug someone (we know how you huggers are!), please ask them first to make sure they are comfortable with it.

  • We will not be handing out bulletins in order to ensure a paperless service. Details about events, updates, etc. can be found at sterlingfoursquare.com, through our e-news, and on Facebook.

  • We will not have a Connect time nor will we pass the offering baskets around during service. This will help to abbreviate the service and to lessen hand-to-hand contact. Giving envelopes, Connection Cards, and Prayer & Care Cards may be dropped off in baskets that will be placed at each exit.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, nose, and face. 

  • If you must cough, please cough into your elbow or sleeve. If you continue coughing or sneezing, please immediately leave the service and consider not reentering the auditorium.

  • Avoid touching surfaces. Please note, all surfaces and bathrooms will be cleaned/sanitized before, during, and after each service.

  • Please show grace for all the various members of our church family. If someone is wearing a mask, show grace. If someone is not wearing a mask, show grace. Get it? Show grace. :)

 

WHEN YOU DEPART

  • When the service is over, we will have two designated exits. One exit will be the front left door inside the auditorium which exits into the front church parking lot. The other exit will be out the back auditorium doors into the lobby and then left out the back doors into the alleyway. From there you can walk around the building to your vehicle.  Ushers will be present to help provide direction following the service.

  • Consider parking along the street near the back exit door to help lessen the distance you need to walk to retrieve your vehicle and to make room in our parking lot for others arriving.

  • We will not allow anyone to exit through the front entryway doors and we will not be using the Connection Counter. This will help the flow of traffic and ensure we don't have a bottleneck at the front doors with people arriving for the next service.

  • Please do not congregate in groups in the auditorium or lobby after service as we'll need to get people in and out quickly. If you wish to visit and hang out after service, consider walking over to Propst Park together. It's going to be a beautiful day!

  • If you develop COVID-19 symptoms within a couple of days after our church service, please contact the church office at 970-522-1154.

Thank you for your cooperation and grace in helping us gather as a church family as safely as possible!
