**Please bring confirmation with you (on phone or printed).**
The Main Entrance doors and North Entrance near the back lot will be open on Sundays. All other entrances will be closed. Please arrive no more than 20 minutes before each service to allow for cleaning procedures and best flow for traffic turnaround.
As we reopen, it is our intention to provide a touchless experience. Doors will be propped open and paper communication materials have been removed such as weekend programs and brochures. All-important communication will be available on our app, website, and eNews. Instead of passing an offering basket, drop boxes will be available near the doors to the Auditorium and Community Room. Online giving is encouraged. Classrooms will be closed and Communication Boxes have been removed. There will be no food or beverage service available and drinking fountains will be closed, except for one touchless bottle filling station near Main Entrance doors. You are welcome to bring your own coffee!
Participants will need to keep social distance. Smiles and waves are always great ways to greet each other. Basically, "No hugs, handshakes, or hanging out.” Seating will be made available in every other row to allow us to alternate rows for different services. Participants will need to leave three empty seats between each household. Bathrooms will be limited to 25% capacity at one time. Signs and volunteers will also be in place to help guests maintain distance. Masks are recommended, not required. We will have a limited number of masks available on-site and encourage people to bring their own from home when possible to help us maintain supply levels.
There will be numerous sanitization stations located throughout the facility, and hard surfaces in the Community Room and Auditorium will be sanitized before each service. The use of rows will alternate between services.
If you attend with children, be prepared to keep your kids close to you. The kids' classrooms and Family/Cry Room will remain closed and they will need to maintain social distancing under your supervision. Kids activity sheets will be available. Tablets/phones with headphones are permitted for kids while at their seats during this time.
During the rest of the week, four gatherings of 10 or less will be permitted on campus at the same time in separate areas of the building. Gatherings will use separate entrance and exit doors as well as restrooms. Spaces will be sanitized before each use. Gatherings where volunteer leaders or the majority of people are in a vulnerable risk category will be requested to refrain from meeting together on campus for the time being. All childcare and kids programming has been suspended.
We will continue to broadcast our Auditorium Services online Sundays at 9:30am and 11:00am at constancefree.org/live and on our Facebook Page. Services are also archived on our website in the days following for viewing as well. If you aren’t able to gather with us in-person or aren't comfortable coming back right away, that’s ok. Whether your household chooses to join us online or on campus, you are always a valued part of our Constance community! If you are healthy and staying home, consider a small watch party gathering with a few friends or neighbors and watch together online.
Thank you for remaining prayerful, faithful, and flexible in these times. We truly appreciate everyone’s patience, understanding and grace as we navigate as responsibly as we can.
