Guidelines
REOPENING DATES AND IMPORTANT GUIDELINE INFORMATION
 
While we celebrate the opportunity to gather “in person”, we are aware that some folks will prefer to continue to worship online. This is perfectly acceptable. We want everyone to feel safe as they make decisions regarding church life in the future. This is
the purpose of offering choices. The Trustees will be working with the ushers to make sure that every precaution is taken as we gather, whether indoors or outdoors.
 
INDOOR WORSHIP will involve a number of strict guidelines:  
  • Masks are required and must be worn at all times while indoors.  If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.
  • Parking lot attendants will ask members to leave a space between cars when parking (large lot available only). 
  • Attendees will enter through the main lobby doors which will be propped open. 
  • We will be taking the temperature of each person. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be asked to watch the service online from home. 
  • Ushers and security team members will direct attendees to available seating. Every other pew will be unavailable to ensure social distancing. The sanctuary will be disinfected after each service. 
  • All in-person Adult Sunday School classes will resume on October 11th.  Please check “Through The Week” under the “Home” tab for class information.
  • The worship services will be shorter in length, allowing folks to enter and exit with limited contact between services. 
  • Offering baskets will be available at the rear of the sanctuary. 
  • Please use hand sanitizing practices. 
 
OUTDOOR WORSHIP GUIDELINES:​ 
  • Guests are invited to bring lawn chairs and sit in the empty spot to the right of their car (seating is NOT provided). 
  • The playground will be off limits. Parents are asked to keep their children with them. 
  • In-person  cancellations due to weather will be posted on our home page.  You may join Encounter “live” on facebook @ Encounter-Sicklerville.
  •  
For the safety of everyone, while on church property please refrain from hugging, shaking hands and “hanging out” with friends you haven’t seen.
 
Please keep in mind, our goal is to maintain the health and
safety of everyone. We appreciate your patience and
cooperation.
