RE-OPENING

PROCEDURES

What We’re Doing

  • All WSCC services will be as much of a touchless experience as possible, and all high-volume areas will be thoroughly sanitized between services.

  • All portable equipment that attendees will come in contact with has been sanitized before reopening. Sanctuary carpets and flooring has been shampooed and sanitized to the best of our ability. Additionally, any hard services have been cleaned and sanitized before reopening.

  • Hand-sanitizing stations will be placed at the entrance and designated areas in the sanctuary.

  • Water fountains will not be open or usable.

  • Our Greeters and Ushers are using best practices and will greet you with a smile because they are happy you are here. They will maintain proper social distancing measures to respect the safety and health of you and your family.

  • Volunteers will be wearing face masks for your safety.

  • We have reduced our seating to 50 total seating (not including volunteers) to provide adequate space for social distancing.

 

HOW YOU CAN HELP MAKE EACH SUNDAY A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE:

  • Show up 15 minutes before your service begins.

  • We ask you to please maintain a constant 6 feet distance from you and other people at the service.

  • We are providing hand sanitizer at each entrance for your convenience.

  • Please sit with any family members you come with so we can seat the greatest number of people. The seating has been taped and roped off for social distancing.

  • We are continuing to stream our services online through all the platforms you've become accustomed to. If you prefer to watch the service from home, just aren't ready to come back on campus yet, are vulnerable, or are caring for someone who is, please continue joining us from home. It's ok and you are as much a part of the service as being on-campus.

We will continue to reserve seats for Sunday's until more restrictions are lifted.  You can see these guidelines/restrictions below.

It is very important that you make a reservation so that we can make sure we accommodate you and your family (up to 50 total per service). 

With the current guidelines/restrictions, churches can gather as long as everyone can maintain a proper distance of 6ft from each other (family units may sit together).  We have evaluated our worship spaces and have concluded that we can accommodate 50 people with proper distancing between everyone in the Sanctuary.  

Please note the following temporary modifications to our Sunday experience:

  1. We will have limited entry and exit points. 

  2. The Greeters and ushers will assist in finding seating.

  3. Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the church.

  4. Masks will be made available to those who don’t have one.

  5. There will be no printed handouts or items in the back of the pews.

  6. There will be offering boxes available at the entrance and exit doors.

To save your seat on Sunday, we are asking that you fill out a reservation form for each person attending from your family. This form will generate a ticket and will help us keep capacity at or below 50.  You can fill out that form online (see tab below) or you can call the church office at 407.822.7156 and Sis. Pat will make your reservation for you.

This is very important...we want you to know that if you are at all uncomfortable being on campus during this time please feel no pressure to be on campus until you are ready.  We will continue streaming both services online and on social media. 

We are all in this together. Please know that we are here to serve you and our community in any way we are able. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at any time.
