WOWC Guidelines for The Live Worship Service During Phase 1

  • We ask that if you plan to attend our first Sunday services on (May 31st at 8:30 a.m. or 11 a.m.) you register with us and let us know the exact number of individuals that will be attending in your party. You can register either online below or you can call us at 836-0123, ext. 221. Registration will help us determine if we need to create additional Sunday worship services.  We will continue to livestream the Sunday service, Wednesday Bible Study and different Youth and Sunday School classes.  It is okay and understandable if you do not currently feel comfortable returning to the live service.  It is our hope that we all will be able to worship together soon.

Our goal is that we provide a safe environment where people will be excited and encouraged to come back to the House of the Lord to participate in corporate worship.

By registering to attend this Sunday service, you agree to the following guidelines:

  • Social distancing must be practiced throughout the entirety of the church service with attendees keeping 6 feet apart.  (Exception would be family members)
  • Seating will be arranged to maintain social distance.
  • Ushers will be responsible to seat you and your family upon entry to maintain proper social distancing requirements.
  • There will be a planned entry and exit in the sanctuary to assure social distancing. It is important that you and your family follow the direction of our ushers.
  • Please no hand shaking or close personal contact during Phase 1. It is important that we respect everyone’s personal space.
  • The use of face masks is welcome and encouraged, but not mandatory.
  • There will be no child services or Sunday School during Phase 1. Children will always need to be in the close custody of their parents while on the church premises.
  • The nursery will be unstaffed, but available for a brief visit by the child/mother.
  • No one with a fever or symptoms of COVID-19 or known exposure to a COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days, is permitted to attend.
  • Use of infrared thermometers to check attendees body temperature will be used before entry into the church. If any individual has a fever, they will not be permitted to attend the live service.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be made accessible for those attending.
  • The church will be thoroughly cleaned after each service including disinfection of all touchable surfaces.
  • Please know that we are doing everything we can to keep this facility clean and safe. We ask that you abide by these simple guidelines to help us love and respect each other. By doing these simple things, we honor God.
