FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will our indoor services feel the same as pre-COVID-19?

The experience will be similar to what we have been done in the past, as much as possible. We will be masked and socially distanced. Our service will continue to be designed with our church online viewers in mind as well.  Cleaning: Our janitor deep cleans our sanctuary, foyer, and bathrooms after everyone leaves.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Yes. We expect everyone to wear masks while in the building, except for those speaking or performing on stage and anyone with a medical condition. These guidelines are to help keep everyone safe and healthy. We have masks available if you need one.

What will seating in the sanctuary look like?

Seating will be separated by at least 6 feet apart (only those living in the same household may sit together). We also have an attendance overflow room that will keep everyone properly social distanced.

Is there a recommended arrival time for services?

Yes. The sanctuary will be open approximately 15 minutes PRIOR to our worship time. There will not be any fellowship before or during services.  Fellowship will be reserved for after the service.  The nursery will receive children prior to the service time and friendsKIDS will be dismissed after in-service announcements.

What do I do when I enter the building?

We have PPE stations at each door and outside of each bathroom. Please sanitize your hands when entering the building and upon exiting the bathroom. Please ensure your child sanitizers their hands when entering and exiting the nursery. (We have masks available if you need one.)

We will continue to monitor and assess our situation in relation to the Washington County COVID-19 protocols and make worship and fellowship opportunities available that best serves our congregation.

What do I do if I attend a service and later find out I’ve tested positive for Covid-19?

Please notify the church. We will not share your name, however we will make everyone who attended that particular service aware that a positive Covid-19 test has been reported by someone who was in attendance. Email: office@sherwoodfriends.church

What about Church Online during the week?

We live stream our services simultaneously to our in-person services, but you can experience all our weekly sermons on-demand any day on our YouTube Channel.


FINAL THOUGHTS

We have made a lot of adjustments because of the Covid-19 pandemic and believe we have risen to the challenge. Now that we are meeting in-person for worship, it’s important that we all consider we must still be nimble and innovative as we come up with ministry solutions that keep us sharing the Gospel and invite others into the Kingdom of God. Thank you so much!
