Reopening Plan

GENOA CHURCH REOPENING PLAN
 
  • Drive in Services 9:15 and 11:00am.
  • Indoor Service at 8:30am and 10:00am 
  • Online Services streamed LIVE at 9:15 and 11:00am.
We realize there will continue to be ​a wide range of emotions​ and opinions about gathering in-person again. Some people may not want to gather in-person at this time. Others have been ready to gather in-person for several weeks. Therefore, we will need to extend much grace to one another through this process.

If you are unable to attend for whatever reason,

please still join us online or at our Drive In services at 9:15 and 11:00.

INDOOR SERVICES procedures: 
  • We will keep you posted if we open up any additional services for this coming Sunday and/or future Sundays.
  • Additionally, we encourage anyone in a ​vulnerable health situation; please do not attend the Indoor Service at this time. However you are still welcome to attend the Drive In services.

WHAT WILL THE WORSHIP SERVICES LOOK LIKE?

  • People who watch online and people who attend in-person will watch ​the same message and music.
  • Both Indoor Services (8:30 am and 10:00am) will offer seating that will be separated by six feet of empty space​ and families may sit together. The Back Doors will open 30 minutes prior to service time (these are the doors located at the Church Office entrance)
  • We will have our normal Online Services and Drive In services available on Sunday mornings at 9:15 and 11:00am.

 

WHAT ABOUT MASKS?

That is a great question. For indoor services, the CDC currently recommends wearing masks, but masks will not be required, as the law does not mandate them. We understand there are many opinions about wearing masks​. There will undoubtedly be people with and without masks at these services, so please extend grace to one another.

 

WHAT PRECAUTIONS ARE WE TAKING?

We have taken the following precautions as we prepare to reopen the building on Sundays.
  • Social distancing procedures with the exception of families sitting together
  • Seats will be assigned upon entry; families will be allowed to sit together
  • Multiple hand sanitizer stations
  • No handshaking
  • No passing of offering buckets
  • No self-serve coffee stations
  • Self Serve handouts
  • The doors will remain open, so you do not need to touch them.
  • Restrooms will be cleaned frequently during the morning.
  • No group or social gathering in halls or auditorium and please go directly to your car when the service concludes.

 

WHAT ABOUT STUDENT AND KIDS PROGRAMMING?

We will ​not have any Student and Kids programming​ during our Sunday morning worship. Therefore, we are asking families with children that would not be able to practice physical distancing to not attend these in-person worship services at this time.

We look forward to worshiping together with you online this Sunday. Even while apart, we can still be together.

Whether you are in the building or online, we are a church united, and we will remain that way as we slowly begin this reopening process.

Thank you for your continued prayer and support as we walk this journey together.
