Here are the safety guidelines we will be implementing during Phase One. Please read over them so we can all be ready when the church doors open again.
PHASE ONE SAFETY GUIDELINES:
Greeting: Our First Impression team is here to welcome and serve you; however, our volunteers will refrain from our usual handshakes and hugs and instead greet one another with a friendly wave. We will also implement this courtesy within our congregation during worship services.
Café: Our café will be open but will not be self-serve. Our volunteers will pour and serve all coffee, as well as hand out cream, sugar, and stirrers.
Sanctuary: The seats in the sanctuary will be set up and spaced out to provide for social distancing. Our Ushers will be seat you depending on the number with you or in your family. Once you arrive, please see an Usher to be seated. At the end of service, we will dismiss by section to allow for proper distancing while exiting the building.
Offering: Our time of giving will take place at the end of service. If you choose to give in person, giving buckets will be at the doors as you exit the sanctuary. Digital giving options are still available. You can give online at the-harvest.org/give, or you can give by texting any amount to 803.232.7237.
Communion: For all upcoming onsite services with communion, we will use individually pre-packaged sacraments that will be placed at each seat prior to service.
Your health and well-being are a high priority for us. We realize that as we come together, some are very excited while others are a little hesitant. Let us continue to love each other well by continuing to implement social distancing and respect one another by honoring the 6-foot rule (unless someone invites you into their personal space). If you want to spend time with your friends before or after service, please use the courtyard or outdoor areas.
Please also note, as you return, there will be some volunteer teams and church family with masks and some without. Please use your own discretion when returning as to whether you will wear a mask. Of course, please help us by washing your hands, and if you a feeling ill, running a fever, or coughing, please stay home and join us online.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
