UPDATES FOR IN-PERSON GATHERINGS AS OF 2/24/21
We are continuing to monitor the on-going situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are a few changes the elders have made regarding "in person" gatherings through RGBC.
Most of our ministries and activities are back to meeting "in person". The only ministry we aren't able to resume for now is our children's Sunday School classes during the Equip hour. We hope to have these meeting again by April 11th.
Please check with your home group or ministry leader as to how they plan to meet - whether "in person" or "virtual".
We are also offering an "in person" Adult Equip Class and Youth Equip Class on Sunday mornings at 9 AM. There are also Zoom options available for each class. Children's classes will resume as soon as we're able to staff safely and fully.
We are continuing to make our corporate worship gathering a priority but in a way that maximizes safety. Here are the following updates to our present guidelines:
- Face Masks Required. We are asking everyone to utilize face coverings with the only exception being for those speaking / singing from the platform. Regarding younger children, we ask that you do the best you can as we understand that it can be difficult for smaller children.
- Children / nursery. We are providing nursery (birth - 3 yr old) during the worship service but you must register ahead of time due to very limited space. See our church center app for registration or it can be accessed here
- Seating. We are now providing sufficient seating spaced apart and utilizing the bleachers to help with social distancing.
- Practice social distancing. We are blessed with a large meeting space but please do your best to maintain social distancing while inside the building.
The restrooms will be cleaned and sanitized each Sunday by 8:30 AM and we will have at least 4 hand sanitizer stations available.
IMPORTANT: We do ask you to stay home for the recommend period of time if you or anyone in your family have symptoms of illness, have been around others who are ill or tested positive for COVID-19, or have recently traveled outside the state of Maryland. We will continue to provide our live stream at 10:30 AM for those who need to stay home short term or long term.
More details will be given as we have need to communicate them. As always, your safety is a priority. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to one of the elders.
