We will practice social distancing and face masks in accordance with CDC and State guidelines.
HOW CAN WE GATHER? I THOUGHT WE COULDN’T MEET YET.
This is likely the number one question that people have.
While the governor’s executive order didn’t require places of worship to stop holding services, they did require such activities be conducted in a manner that provided appropriate physical distancing to the extent feasible.
The short answer is, we can meet as long as we maintain social distancing.
HOW WILL WE MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING?
Seating areas in the Worship Center will be clearly defined. We will skip every other row and ask you to leave 3 seats between parties.
As difficult as it may be, we are going to ask that you refrain from huddling in groups in the lobby, and to refrain from handshakes and hugs.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO BE DIFFERENT ON SUNDAY?
For starters, entry doors will be propped open and you’ll be greeted with a wave from a safe distance.
We will modify or remove activities that require close physical contact (such as greeting each other with handshakes, coffee service, communion).
Even if you see more face masks (and a lot more hand sanitizer) when we gather in-person, we hope it will feel like coming home.
WILL YOU STILL OFFER ONLINE SERVICES?
Yes! We live stream our 9:30 am worship service.
This just means that you’ll need to tune into at verdecc.online.church or the live stream link on the homepage of our website, each Sunday morning at 9:30 am to watch the worship service.
The service will then be posted and archived on our Verde Community Church website, Facebook page, Vimeo page, and Youtube channel.
