COVID-19 Updates

UPDATE: Reserving your seat for worship is no longer necessary - just come to your preferred Worship gathering at 9:30a or 11:15a

As you plan to return to in-person worship, we wanted to share a few things we are doing to make it as safe as possible for everyone. Remember, if you aren't ready to return just yet, that is ok. We are still live streaming the worship experience every Sunday at 9:30a on YouTube, Facebook, the FAITH Website, and the FAITH app.

PRECAUTIONS

We are so happy to see everyone again and get back to some sort of normal .. sort of. In order to honor the guidelines passed down from our local, state, and federal leaders, we are taking the following precautions to make you feel as safe as possible while on campus. 

  • Face coverings are REQUIRED for any 2yrs or older at all times while indoors per guidelines from state and county.  Only people using the microphones will be permitted to take off their masks. If you do not have a face-covering/mask, we will have a supply at the door as you come in. While we miss seeing your smiles, we are more concerned that you are healthy. Masks must also be worn while singing. We know it's uncomfortable, but unfortunately necessary.

  • We will have First Impressions volunteers who will be wearing gloves hold the door for you as you enter and exit the building. This is will cut down the number of people who will be touching the door surfaces/handles.

  • There will be hand sanitizers throughout the campus for your convenience. Washing your hands frequently for 20-seconds also helps to stop the spread of germs.

  • We know everyone would love to exchange hugs, handshakes, etc., but for your safety, we request that you observe the social distancing rule of 6 feet you and the next person.

  • As much as we know everyone would like to stand around and visit, we ask that you please exit the building as soon as worship ends. This gives us plenty of time to clean and sanitize before, between, and after worship services. Our Sanitation Team wipes down all surfaces and also uses special equipment to clean the seats in the Worship Center, as well as any rooms that may have been used. 

  • Another way we are keeping you safe is by not be distributing worship guides or prayer lists. We have also removed all resources from the seatbacks in the Worship Center. This will cut down on the number of surfaces touched by multiple people. The best way to stay up to date on all happenings is to join the FAITH Connect Email LIst (button at top of page) or visit the FAITH website/app.

  • We will not pass the offering plate.  There will be a wood box available at the Connection Center and ushers will have a plate in hand upon dismissal.

 

 

MINISTRY ADJUSTMENTS

  • THURSDAY NIGHTS – At this time, Thursday Night Worship is on hold. Come out and worship with us on Sunday mornings at 9:30a and 11:15a or via FAITH Live at 9:30a. Thursdays will be back, but we don't have a date at this time.

  • FAITH KIDS – Our first phase of reopening does not include the on-campus Kids’ Ministry.  We still have systems and procedures to build and implement before we can safely offer and still maintain licensing with our FAITH CDC during the week.  We are working diligently to change this dynamic.  This means … worshippers of all ages will be with us in the Worship Center.  Bring the whole family.  It will be beautiful.

  • FAITH GROUPS – While most groups are still meeting virtually, a few have returned to meeting in person. They are following the mask/social distancing guidelines. Go to WelcomeTo.FAITH/groups for more info or to join a group.

  • YOUTH – The Youth have begun to meet on a modified schedule of campus. Youth Week '20 will happen with a modified schedule to allow for social distancing and sanitation. Go to WelcomeTo.FAITH/students for more info.

  • VOLUNTEER TEAM – We have a large number of volunteers who just aren't ready to return to church. What does this mean to you? Glad you asked ... This means we really need some of you who are on the bench to take the field.  We need First Impressions team members. We need additional volunteers for FAITH Kids to help us re-launch it sooner rather than later.  Email jointheteam@faithbc.net to get on the team and find out how you can help.

Still have questions? Email info@faithbc.net and we'll be sure to get back to you.
