Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What time will the Livestream service start?
A: The Live Stream service will begin at 10:30 AM each Sunday.
Q: What time will the onsite services start and end?
A: The early service will begin at 9 AM and end around 10 AM. The late service will begin at 10:30 AM and end around 11:30 AM.
Q: Why the encouragement to wear a face mask?
A: Masks are not required, but encouraged. There is some evidence that singing and even talking without a face mask can spread aerosol droplets capable of transmitting viral particles.
Q: How are you handling seating?
A: We encourage everyone to sit with their own household and to leave two-three seats between you and the next household. There are white sashes marking off every other row to help with social distancing. Between services the sashses are moved to the rows used in first service, so no one is sitting in the same seats as someone from the previous service.
Q: Will there be Nursery, Children’s church, or Sunday school for my kids?
A: Nursery for 0-2 is offered during both services. Sunday school and children’s church are currently paused for a season due to the rise in COVID cases in our area.
Q: Will there be an offering?
A: The passing of the offering plates or any other item between parties are contrary to good health practices at this time as it would contribute to the spread of the virus and is therefore not permitted. We have a drop box available in our Welcome Desk in the foyer for your use as you enter or exit the building. You can also click the give button on the toolbar above to give online.
Q: What if I am not comfortable attending?
A: We encourage you to be discerning and consider DHHS guidelines which include: Those who are sick or at risk need to stay home. This includes: The elderly, people with underlying medical conditions, family members who live with elderly people or those who are at risk, people who have access to those at risk in nursing institutions, people who have upper respiratory or flu-like symptoms, people who live with someone with upper respiratory or flu-like symptoms, people with COVID-19 or live with someone with COVID-19, and people who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
We look forward to offering the opportunity to meet together in the building while continuing to consult with health officials that continue to provide guidelines and recommendations. Whether you choose to join us via livestream or meet with us at the Hillcrest facility, we look forward to having you join us for Sunday services!
