Reopening the Church
Guidelines

The Committee to Reopen the Church building has used the federal CDC guidelines as well as the State of Illinois guidelines to recommend the following practices for the reopening of the church building:
 

TIPS FOR ALL WORSHIPERS: WHAT TO EXPECT

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

  • Check your temperature: if you have one, please do not come to church.

  • Stay at home if:

       • You are experiencing symptoms of illness or are in contact with anyone in your home who is ill.

       • You have knowingly been exposed to COVID-19. Please, do not come to church for 14 days after learning
          of this exposure.

  • If you are over 65 or have any other conditions that put you at high risk, please consider carefully whether to join
    in-person worship or worship with us online.

  •  Make an effort to use the bathroom before you come, as only 1 or 2 people may use the restroom at a time. 

  •  Make sure you have a face covering to bring and wear. 

  •  Remember to bring your registration or be on a list of attendees. 

  •  Bring your own Bible. 

 

WHEN YOU ARRIVE

  • Put your face covering or mask on before exiting your car. 

  • Refrain from hugs, handshakes or any physical contact at all times 

  • Enter only in the Narthex doors.

  • Your temperature will be taken by the Greeter or Usher.

  • Wait patiently to be checked in by the Usher.

  • Sanitize your hands as directed by the Usher. 

  • Observe social distancing at all times. 

  • Ushers will direct you to pews with markings on where to sit. 

 

DURING WORSHIP

  • Do not change seats during the service.

  • Only 1 or 2 people may use the restroom at a time. 

  • There will be no congregational singing. 

  • Keep your face covering or mask on at all times except for receiving Communion. 

  • Nursery and children’s worship will not be offered. Parents will be responsible for keeping their children with them at all times and occupied during worship as there will be no ‘activity bags’ available. 

  • The offering basket, as usual, will be available in the narthex for your financial gifts 

 

AFTER WORSHIP

  • Please take home any items you may have brought with you.

  • You will be dismissed by pew or seating areas. Follow the instructions of the Usher. 

  • Use only the Narthex doors to Exit. 

  • Do not congregate inside or outside the church doors. 

  • Continue to wear your face covering or mask until you leave the area where worshipers are. 

  • Any individual who experiences symptoms of COVID-19 after being at the church must contact the church immediately. 

While our church will attempt to take appropriate precautions consistent with the advice of public health authorities, congregants and guests should understand that they assume the risk of contracting COVID-19 anytime they enter a public space, since such precautions do not eliminate the risk of infections.
