Covid-19 Worship Procedures

Love is our guiding principle, loving God with all that we are and all that we have and loving our neighbors as ourselves.  In consultation with the Administrative Board along, with resources provided by Bishop Jones, we’re excited to begin more in-person worship opportunities.  While we know that these next steps will NOT satisfy all of our hearts desire but it is our next step.  For those wishing to worship from home printed resources will remain available for pickup as well as YouTube playlists and printed materials here on the Worship Tab.

  • Each pew you will find cleaning supplies and ask before you leave, to clean the area you were (following provided instructions) to prepare it for the next group. 

  • We will be running air purifiers. 

  • We will projecting the bulletin for us all to follow along 

  • Offering baskets will be located in the center aisle towards the back so you may leave your offering as you enter or exit.

  • When the service is over, after the benediction, you will be dismissed by pew to exit out the side door.  If you have a physical need to exit through the main doors, we ask that you remain seated until everyone else has exited and then you may exit through the main doors.

  • Should you need to use the restroom facilities, we ask that one person at a time enter.  Please follow the instructions as posted in each room, wiping down the surfaces that you touched.  You will find a can of Lysol wipes on the table outside the restroom along with hand sanitizer. 

  • In the event that someone who has been in worship, tests positive for Covid-19, we will let those who were in close contact but will keep the individual’s identity private. 

  • If 2 or more people test positive we will return to virtual worship for 10 days.  If all of our campus of HFISD close because significant community spread we will shift to virtual worship until we can review data and make determination if we need to modify our in-person worship or can return as we have been.
