What to know about Sunday services

  • Before coming to church

    • Know your expectations: church services will not look or feel like they have in the past.

    • Respect others

    • Prepare your heart to worship

    • To adhere to the most recent executive order, we will be accommodating 25% of the sanctuary and other spaces. 

    • To adhere to CDC’s social distancing recommendations, we will be limiting seating for our Sunday worship services. Congregants will be seated in every other pew and spacing 6 ft. apart. Because of this, we will have overflow seating set up in addition to the sanctuary.

    • For the first couple of weeks of services resuming in the building, we will still be recording the service ahead of time and watching it together. This is designed to allow the staff & COVID Committee to evaluate the many procedures and precautions we have put into place without having all the elements of leading a worship service placed on top of us.  Once we feel good about how everything is running, and our technology infrastructure is in place to live-stream, we will move to live services. 

    • Church services will remain available for watching at home if you are unable to come, do not feel ready to return to the church building, or are high risk.

    • To better accommodate new protocols, we strongly encourage you to come early. Please be patient as we all learn what the new “normal” looks like

    • We ask all to be mindful of CDC’s recommendations (see attached document).

    • If you are not feeling well in any way, we ask that you stay home and join us online.

    • For everyone’s safety, we are asking that you only utilize the church building for worship services. All other rooms will be closed. In an effort to create a safe working environment for the staff, please refrain from entering the building during the week.

 

  • When you arrive

    • You can expect to be welcomed with a friendly wave by are greeters

    • For everyone’s safety, each person attending a service at DCF will have their temperature taken prior to entering the building. (Non-contact thermometers will be used. If someone has a fever of 100 degrees, they will be asked to not attend the service that day.)

    • All congregants three years of age and older, must wear a face covering (both nose and mouth) to enter and exit the building. Face covering can be removed once you are seated. If you do not have a face covering, DCF will provide you with one.

    • Congregants will be ushered to a specific seat in order to fit our capacity and properly social distance. Family units will be seated together. (If you have any specific needs, please contact the church in advance or notify an usher)

    • Church mailboxes will not be available for use at this time.

    • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building.

 

  • During worship

    • Children are welcome to sit with their parents during the worship services. Nursery and children’s programs will not be meeting at this time (seriously, noise is not a problem).

    • Pens have been removed from pews. You are encouraged to bring your own pen.

    • Church bathrooms will be available for use. Church bathrooms will be cleaned before and after services.

    • The drinking fountains will not be available for use. We encourage you to bring water.

    • We will be participating in corporate singing though initially; the number of songs will be less.

 

  • After worship

    • At the conclusion of the worship service, congregants will be ushered out by rows. Face coverings need to be worn while exiting the building. 

    • Coffee and snacks will not be served at this time.

    • We ask that all congregants exit the building. Fellowship is more the welcomed outside of the building.

 

  • WHAT TO BRING

    • Bible

    • Mask

    • coffee and/or water

    • pen or pencil

    • Notes/kids bulletins (available at church as well)
