Attend Worship in Person with Hosanna!

To help us ensure a safe space for worship, please read through these before attending.

As an expression of love and care for one another, all attending in-person worship agree to abide by the following:

  • Wear a face mask at all times, even when singing, unless exempt according to Clay County health guidelines

  • Maintain space from those not part of one's household.  

  • UPDATED We highly encourage attendees to get vaccinated if they are not already.  It's not only a way to care for yourself, but also a way to care for your neighbor who might have different medical needs that you.  

We’re all in this together, so our expectations will be the same for everyone, whether or not they have received a vaccine.

What is different?

  • Entry to the building will take place through the front door, where worshipers will be greeted and they sanitize their hands. 

  • We will not be conducting temperature checks for a variety of reasons, including their limited helpfulness in screening for COVID-19.

  • UPDATED - Rows on the right side of the sanctuary have been spread out and all are now open.  Seating on the left side of the sanctuary remains every other row to allow 6-foot spacing for those desiring additional space.  

  • Alternatives to using hymnals, passing offering plates, signing attendance pads, and sharing the peace with handshakes will be utilized. 

  • Doors will remain open to minimize commonly touched surfaces. 

  • Air circulation will be maximized to the extent possible as recommended for indoor gatherings.  

  • Commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized after the service.

 

When Not to Attend:

  • Whether or not you've received the vaccine, out of an abundance of caution, we ask you to remain at home if you may have been near someone who has tested positive with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, if you are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, or if you are experiencing any of these symptoms (even if you don't think they are COVID-19):

    • fever or chills,

    • cough,

    • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing,

    • fatigue,

    • muscle or body aches,

    • headache,

    • new loss of taste or smell,

    • sore throat,

    • congestion or runny nose,

    • nausea or vomiting,

    • diarrhea. 

  • We encourage those for whom COVID-19 might be potentially life-threatening due to other health risks to remain at home and join us for worship online.  We believe God cares for our physical health as much as our spiritual health; there is no guilt in ensuring your wellbeing. 

Attendance Size:

  • UPDATED -Depending on how people are seated and how big each household is, our current seating arrangement allows us to safely seat 85 people in the worship space, plus an additional 15 in the fellowship hall.  

  • Because our attendance has not approached this capacity, we are not requiring sign-up for worship.
