GUIDELINES FOR WORSHIP SERVICE

 


While abiding by social distancing guidelines, our worship service will begin at 10am. The service will be limited to 50 people max. 


WHEN TO ARRIVE
Access to the sanctuary will be available starting 20 minutes prior to the start of service. Please arrive early to allow time to be seated. To maintain proper social distancing during the service, seating will be directed by our ushers who will guide you to your seats.

 

When you arrive, please enter through the Harvest Kids door, follow the guidance of our ushers and leaders, wait in line patiently to be seated, and maintain a 6ft distance between families and individuals.


NO CHILDREN MINISTRY OR SUNDAY SCHOOL
For the safety of our families and volunteers, we are not yet offering Children's Ministry during our in-person services. We encourage families to attend service together in the sanctuary, but parents must keep their children within arms-reach at all times. 

 

There will not be any crayons, coloring books, or activity sheets passed out for the kids, so we encourage you to bring your own coloring books or activity for your children.
 

Sunday school classes will be canceled during this time and classrooms will remain closed.


THE WORSHIP SERVICE
The order of service will be different.  To help with being exposed to long to the aerosol of exhaled breath during singing, we will sing one song to open the service, then do announcements, preach message, and then close with two songs.  The length of service should run about 70 minutes.

 

To help prevent contact spread, we will not be handing out bulletins, message notes, Bible or Registers.  We encourage you to bring paper and pen to take notes if desired. You can send your prayer requests via email to Candi at cjohnsonharvest@gmail.com.

 

The offering will be collected after the service by one of the ushers standing at the sanctuary door.  You can place your offering in the offering bucket on the table as you leave the sanctuary, also you can continue to give on-line at our website www.harvestwoodhull.org.


GUIDED DISMISSAL
Once service has ended, our ushers will dismiss everyone by rows just like a wedding.  To allow proper time for cleaning in-between services and to maintain social distancing, we request that you please not linger once you are dismissed from the sanctuary. 


WHAT OTHER SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES ARE IN PLACE?
We ask that you please not hug or shake hands with those outside of your family. Instead, please offer a friendly smile, wave, and hello.

The coffee vine and other gathering places in the building will remain closed to help mitigate surface spread and to discourage any non-social distanced gatherings.

 

For bathroom use only two women at a time in the women’s bathroom.  If you are a family with small kids you can use the bathrooms in the Harvest Kids area.


WHAT SANITATION MEASURES ARE IN PLACE?
In addition to social distancing measures, we will also be sanitizing restrooms, and all frequently touched surfaces. Hand sanitizer will also be made available.


ARE MASKS REQUIRED?
Masks are recommended by the state, but not required, but please feel free to bring and wear your own if you desire to do so.

 

SHOULD I ATTEND IN PERSON?
If you are sick, elderly, high risk, or uncomfortable attending services in person, we encourage you to stay home and instead join us for services via Facebook live.
