What to Expect
We have a plan in place to provide a safe and clean environment, including the sanitizing of chairs and surfaces between each gathering, and a mostly “touchless” experience, for all attendees. Anyone who is sick is kindly asked to remain home and worship with us online, but all others are welcome at their discretion.
During phase one, families will sit together with their children in the auditorium for a family-friendly service. Pre-registering helps us be prepared because of social distancing guidelines and spatial restrictions of reduced seating capacity. We intentionally have extra spaces ready for those who do not register ahead of time.
Our Ministry Staff and Serve Team volunteers will provide the utmost care to ensure safe and clean environments. Here are some ways we will accomplish this:
- All Journey Church Ministry Staff and Serve Team volunteers (except those on the stage) will wear a face mask at all times.
- For the health and safety of our Journey Church Family, we are following the current public health orders for COVID-19 asking everyone in attendance to wear a mask while inside our church building.
- Masks will be made available to all attendees.
- We will adhere to social distancing practices (six feet between each person or family at all times), and ask that you do so, as well.
- We will direct you to one-way facility entrances and exits.
- We have reduced seating capacity to allow for adequate space between each person/family attending.
- We will have a mostly “touchless” environment, one in which you can move from your vehicle, in and out of our buildings, without having touched anything with your hands.
- Doors will be propped open as you enter and exit.
- We will not hand-out any printed materials or provide pens in seatbacks.
- We will not pass offering containers. We will have touchless collection boxes near the doors within the atrium. You may also choose to continue to give through our website, or our Journey mobile app.
- Hand sanitizer will be readily available, and frequent hand washing with soap is encouraged.
- We will sanitize the facilities prior to your arrival, and in between gatherings. This includes the restrooms, auditorium chairs, and other touchable surfaces.
- The length of each gathering will be under one hour, allowing for sanitizing and turnaround time between gatherings.
- Coffee, water, and mints will not be available.
- There will be no separate in-person Family Ministry programming yet (nursery, preschool, elementary or students). Any children coming with you will sit with you during the gathering. Visit our Family Resource page weekly for age-appropriate updates.
