Letter to Church Congregation

After careful and prayerful deliberation the Church Council of Advent Church has decided to offer limited in-person worship options beginning Sunday, June 21 for both our 9am and 10:30am services. While we look forward to meeting again in person after all these weeks away from each other, it is still OUR UTMOST PRIORITY to keep everyone healthy and safe!
 
If you are hesitant about returning to Advent services at this point or feel it is necessary to avoid crowds in order to protect those with vulnerable immune systems in your home or line of work, please stay home. If your own health has been compromised recently, please stay home. If you have travelled recently to a high risk area, please stay home. We will continue to live-stream services on our YouTube channel in order to protect the health of those we all love and care for.
If you do chose to attend Sunday morning services in person, here’s what to expect:
  • You’ll be met by the smiling, but masked, faces of our greeters outside the main Sanctuary doors in the Courtyard. You’ll be asked to put on your mask and sanitize your hands before entering. If you don’t have a mask, one will be safely provided.
  • Families with children not wearing a mask will be asked to join others in the Fellowship Hallas CDC guidelines recommend children under 2 years old refrain from wearing a mask. NO CHILDCARE WILL BE PROVIDED ON CAMPUS AT THIS TIME.
  • Once inside the Narthex of the Sanctuary (or Fellowship Hall), you’ll pick up a Communion pack set out by usher at another sanitized station.
  • After receiving your Communion pack in the Narthex, an usher will greet you and walk your group to a safe seating area in the Sanctuary. You’ll be seated to maintain a distance of 6 feet from other groups in the pews around you.
  • Mask-wearing will be required AT ALL TIMES in the Sanctuary for safety.
  • At the conclusion of the service, ushers will guide you to exit row-by-row to either the NW or NE exit at the front of the Sanctuary. Ushers will be there to collect tithes and offerings as well as open the doors for you. Waste bins will be provided at each exit to dispose of your empty Communion packs.
  • All congregational surfaces in the Sanctuary will be sprayed and disinfected with an electrostatic sprayer both before and after services.
  • Only the Courtyard Restrooms will be open and available for use on Sunday morning. They will be cleaned before, between, and after service times.
  • We are unable at this time to resume our regular coffee and donut routine. 
  •  
While it’s always important to ask ourselves, WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) on a daily basis, this pivotal time in history motivates us all at Advent to remember WWAD (What Would Advent Do?)
 

Worship at home is safest.

Wear masks in the Sanctuary at all times.

Avoid physical contact.

Distance 6 feet from others

 
Love is Why We Take Precaution!
