Frequently asked questions & guidelines for Phase 2
Do I need to RSVP?
No – there is no need to RSVP
How will be able to physically distance?
Sanctuary seating will be set up in groups of 1 to 5 with adequate space between each grouping. Once the sanctuary limit has been reached (115 people), we will direct you to one of our two overflow areas: Fellowship Hall (50 people maximum) or the Chapel (25 people maximum)
What can I expect if I attend during Phase 2?
- Parking lot greeters will direct you where to park.
- Upon entering the service, you will see a table of bracelets. You are invited to select one that matches your “closeness comfort level.” This will help others know your physical distancing boundaries.
- You will let the ushers know how many are in your family and they’ll direct you to the proper seating arrangement.
- Once the maximum in the sanctuary is reached, you will be invited to sit either around tables in the Fellowship Hall or socially distanced in the smaller Chapel setting.
- At the end of worship, you will be directed to leave the facility and, if you’d like to visit, do so outside in the parking lot.
Do I have to wear a mask?
Yes. We will have masks available if you do not have one.
Where do I enter?
Through the main glass doors. Please note—all other entrances will be closed.
Will there be nursery, Kid Life, Student Life, or adult classes available?
Only Kid Life will be available during the Contemporary service at 10:00 am. You will need to check in your child at the check-in desk and then follow the directions Kid Life provides.
Will there be a bulletin?
No, we will not have bulletins. In fact, all hymnals, Bibles, and Worship +2 catalogs have been removed from the chair pockets. You’re welcome to bring your own Bible to worship.
Will an offering plate be passed?
No, we will not be passing an offering plate. Instead, we have boxes available near the sanctuary doors for you to place your offering in as you enter or exit the sanctuary. Or you can text to give or use our app.
Will coffee/treats be available?
No, not yet. You are, however, welcome to bring your own coffee in a covered container.
Will the restrooms be open?
Yes, the restrooms in the lobby will be available. We ask that only two people at a time be in each restroom. A staff member will be located in the area to help you know if the restroom is empty. Water fountains will not be available for use.
How long are we going to be doing this?
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been carefully listening to guidance from the local health department and CDC as well as watching what is happening in our own community. We will continue to do this as we monitor when it is safe for us to move into Phase 3 where life gets back to “post-Covid normal.”
What if I’m not ready to come back?
That’s perfectly okay! Feeling comfortable returning to worship is a personal decision. Our online services will continue to be available every Sunday morning at 8:30 and 10 am so you can watch just as you have been since the middle of March.
- Monitor your health. If you are not feeling well or running a temperature, please don’t come to worship.
- If someone who attends worship is later diagnosed with Covid-19, contact tracing will be attempted and you may be asked to quarantine for two weeks.
Please know that the continuation of Phase 2 is dependent on Covid-19 conditions in our area. We may have to revisit meeting in person if conditions warrant.
Even though this all seems a little overwhelming—they are all precautions. We want to make worship in-person at Faithbridge as safe as we possibly can. We love you all and look forward to being TOGETHER AGAIN!
