COVID Protocols for In-Person Worship
The Promise Church will continue to update our COVID protocols for in-person. You will continue to have the option to participate online or attend in-person. Here are The Promise Church COVID protocols as of April 18, 2021:
Masks to be worn unless at your seats for service. Masks are to be worn when entering and leaving the church building. Once seated with members of your household or quaran-team members, you have the option to remove your mask. We also have disposable masks available at the church entrance. Congregational singing will be allowed.
Social distancing of six feet. In the sanctuary, each set of chairs are a minimum of 6-feet of distance from each other. Please select a set of seats for your household or quaran-team pod.
Please stay home if you are sick or have symptoms that include fever, cough, sore throat, congestion, or shortness of breath. Even if you think you will be fine, think of the others who are in the higher risk categories. You can watch worship online on Facebook Live. If you “comment” saying you are watching, we will count your attendance. Please take good care of yourself. We want and need you well.
Maintain hand hygiene. It is important that everyone wash his or her hands diligently. Wash your hands while reciting the Lord’s Prayer; that is how long we should wash our hands. We know that washing our hands is best practice. The better practice is the use of hand sanitizer (60% alcohol-based). We have stations of hand sanitizer all over the church. Please use them often.
Our Promise café will be closed for the foreseeable future. Please bring your own coffee (beverage) from home to enjoy during worship just like usual. You can even bring snacks to share with your own family. Children will be staying in the service with their families.
Meet and greet safely. Well, this is a tough one for us. We need to refrain from hugging, kissing, shaking hands, etc., for the time being. We can wave, bump ankles, bow, air hug, etc.
Cleaning staff. Rest assured that our cleaning staff will increase their efforts for our safety.
