We are so excited to returning to in-person worship on Sunday mornings at Auburn Elementary! Our first service will be on Sunday, March 21st. We will meet in-person every other week for the forseeable future. Every Sunday, we will also continue hosting our service on Facebook Live. For those who feel comfortable attending in-person worship, we will have many precautions in place based on CDC and local guidelines. These precautions are intended to create as safe an environment as possible with those of us who are more vulnerable in mind. Our services will have a cap of 100 people in order to ensure our ability to socially distance within the space available. Pre-registration is required! We will be offering limited LifeKids programming. Please read below for information about what to expect!
Kids and Students
Masks will be worn by all volunteers at all times and all students 3 and up will be required to wear their mask as well. Everyone, including children, will receive temperature checks upon entering the building.
We have more limited access to spaces in the school and will be maintaining social distancing as much as possible within those spaces — as such, there is a limit to our total capacity for kids admitted to LifeKids each week. Pre–registration is required to ensure your child will have a space.
**Note: We will continue offering our virtual Grow Time every Sunday morning at 9:30am for families who do not yet feel comfortable returning to in-person worship
Health and Safety
The following measures will be taken to reduce the risk of COVID-19:
- Services will be “touchless:” It is our goal to significantly limit any physical contact with a surface or other attendee. As such, doors will be opened for you by our greeting team, we will not be distributing printed materials or food/beverages, and we strongly recommend that those attending worship refrain from physical contact (hugs, handshakes, high fives), as much we may want to show our affection!
- Temperature checks for all in attendance. If someone in your group tests 100.4 or higher we will ask the group to attend online.
- Socially distanced seating: Our attendee capacity is based on our ability to seat every family unit 6 feet apart in our main worship area. We will gave directed traffic flow to limit congestion in hallways and other areas as we enter and exit the worship area.
- Masks will be required for everyone aged 3 and up at all times. We ask that everyone in your family mask even as you approach the school, as entering the building may be a time of close contact with others. The worship team, host, and preacher will wear them except when singing or speaking from stage.
