With our government’s recent approval of reopening worship services, we have been working to prepare for upcoming services in a way that follows government guidance and, most importantly, will help protect members of our congregation and community. As such, our services will look differently than they have in the past.
Here are some of the changes that we will be implementing in order to promote the health of our congregants:
- There will be one service, which will begin at 9am on Sunday morning.
- To maximize ventilation, our service will be held in The Well’s parking lot.
- We recommend that you wear a face covering. If you do not have a face covering and would like to wear one, we will make some available.
- We ask that during, before, and after service, you maintain a physical distance of at least six feet from members of the congregation who are not in your household. We know that it’s difficult to not give handshakes and hugs, but we ask for your help in practicing social distancing at this time.
- In order to allow for greater social distancing, we will be seating individuals or household units in sections that are separated by at least six feet. If you would like to bring your own lawn chair or folding chair, please feel free to do so. We will provide folding chairs for those who do not bring their own.
- In accordance with our state’s recommendations, we will not be singing during service at this time.
- We will not be providing Nursery care. Children will remain in the care of those in their household.
- Given state health recommendations, we will be unable to provide water or refreshments.
- If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, a sore throat, or have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, we ask that you stay home. Please contact us to receive prayer.
- For those who would prefer to worship from home, we will be posting videos of our services on the Monday following each service. You can find links to our previous virtual services here. We encourage those who may be more vulnerable, including older adults and those with underlying health conditions, to consider worshiping at home at this time.

Most importantly, we will continue to pray for God’s continued provision and victory over this virus.
