In-Person Guidelines

We are thrilled to be gathering in-person again!  Please note that while we are providing the option to return to in-person gatherings, please do so only in you are ready and feel safe and comfortable gathering again.  If you feel more comfortable participating with our online services, we will contine to provide online services every Sunday at 11:00am.  If you happen to miss a service, you can always watch it later from our website.

If you decide to return, there are a few things you need to know because our gatherings will look different than what you remember!  We take your health very seriously, and have implemented certain practices to prevent the spread of Covid-19.  Please do not attend if you are experiencing any signs of illness including cough, fever, shortness of breath, or sore throat.

Here are some FAQ'S to help you prepare for our in-person gatherings.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Yes, you will be required to wear a mask while you are in the building.  The only exception is children under the age of 2, and our on stage presenters, who will not be masked when they are on the stage.  If you are unable to bring your own mask, we will provide you with one when you enter.  If you are medically unable to wear a mask, we will provide you with a clear plastic face shield.  If you are unable to attend wearing a mask or face shield, we encourage you to join us online.

 

When should I arrive?

The in-person gathering will start at 11:00am.  Doors will open at 10:45am to allow time to register children and be seated by an usher.

 

Are guests welcome?

Absolutely!  Everyone who is healthy and not experiencing symptoms is welcome to attend.

What precautions have been taken?

Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the building.  Regular cleaning, including sanitizing of high touch surfaces will be maintained.  Floor markers have been placed throughout the building to remind us of physical distancing requirements.  Masks are required while you are in the building.

Who can I sit with?

You may sit next to anyone in your household, as well as any members of a cohort you belong to.  Please allow an usher to seat you.  When you are seated, we ask that you would refrain from changing your seats or walking around the auditorium.

Will we be serving coffee?

No.  At this stage, we will not be serving coffee, and we ask that you would not bring any food or drinks with you to the in-person gathering.

Can I stay and visit after service?

Once our gathering is over, we are asking you to exit the building.  You may visit with others outside.

Will KidZone be open?

Yes, we will have children’s programs for pre-school (ages 2-5) and for children in grades 1-6.  Masks and physical distancing will be required in our KidZone spaces.  As per Alberta Health Services guidelines, our nursery for babies will remain closed at this time.
