Welcome Back to Church!!!
The doors at First Assembly are opening again…with several modifications! Starting on Sunday, June 7, we will temporarily be offering two service times for you to choose from. The early service will start at 8:30 AM and the later service will start at 10:30 AM. Due to social distancing protocols, each service will be limited to 54 groups of 6 (or less) people. We request that you sit only with your family and/or household unit. Regardless of the service you choose, we will be closely following these modifications:
- Each week, everyone must register in order to attend service. If you do not register, your group will be seated in the overflow area if seats are available. Website registration (see below) will be available one week prior to service time and will close at 10 PM the night before services.
- Registered groups will need to assemble into their groups outside the church building. Once everyone in your group has arrived, make your way to the entrance door and an usher will seat you. Ushers will seat groups… there will be no self-seating!
- We will not be offering nursery, children’s ministry, or Sunday School until further notice.
- Non-contact greetings will be emphasized (no hugging, shaking hands, high-fives, etc.)
- No offering plates will be passed during service. Instead, ushers will be posted at the doors to receive your offering as you exit the service. You may also continue to use Online Giving if you prefer.
- Attendees will be asked to limit bathroom use. The water fountain will not be available for use.
- Staff and volunteers will be required to wear facial masks; attendees, while not required, are highly encouraged to wear facial masks.
- Anyone not feeling well is asked to please not attend service, but continue to join us online at 10:30 AM on Sundays.
- After service has ended, please promptly exit the building so that our teams of volunteers can properly sanitize in between services. We request that no one stop to visit or congregate in the foyer both before and after services.
While things might look and feel a little different, these changes are necessary to keep everyone safe. If we all do our part, we can come together and have a wonderful worship experience!
