INFO FOR IN-PERSON SERVICES
First HSV Re-Opening
Under the guidelines of government officials, First HSV will have an in-person services this Wednesday. However, things will be different than usual.
While we cannot guarantee a germ-free environment, we are taking steps to help prevent transmission of Covid-19. You can read more about those steps below. If you are sick, have a fever, present any signs of cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has had COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please stay home.
In-Person Service Schedule
- Wednesday | 6:30pm
We care about your health and safety. If you are in a high-risk group, we encourage you to continue attending online at this time.
Our Safety Guidelines
Our sanctuary has been re-set to allow for social distancing. We’ve measured and observed the federal standards – six feet between family units.
At this time, we will have main services only. There will be no kids ministry activities, nursery, childcare, student ministry, or connect groups. We hope to resume group ministries in phase 2.
To help prevent the spread of infection, we ask everyone to wear a face mask. If you forget, one will be provided for you. Infants and children under the age of 10 will not be required to wear a mask. If you have a health condition that makes it impossible for you to wear a mask, we understand.
Common areas and gathering spaces of the building will be closed. That includes the coffee bar and any place where people might congregate.
Before every service, the sanctuary and all high-touch surfaces will be disinfected. We will only allow people in the room after that procedure is complete.
Hand sanitizing stations are set up throughout the building. We encourage their frequent use.
If you need to sneeze or cough, please cover your mouth and nose or sneeze into your elbow.
We will continually wipe down surfaces in the restrooms and other high-touch areas.
We will not distribute any bulletins or printed materials. Offering envelopes will be placed on the chairs. Extras will be removed and destroyed between services.
Greeters will be wearing masks and gloves. We will not shake hands, hug, or high five. Instead, we will air hug, wave, and smile.
We encourage you to continue giving online. During services, we will take an offering. Ushers will wear masks and gloves. They will walk to your family and allow you to drop your offering into a bucket, touch-free. The kiosk is also available in the lobby. Sanitizing wipes should be used to wipe down the kiosk before every use.
There will be no meal.
Parking & Entering/Exiting
When you arrive, you will need to wait in your car until approximately five minutes before service. When the sanctuary has been cleared and disinfected, you will be invited to enter.
Entering/Exiting the Building
When you enter the building through the main Worship Center doors, you will be directed to a seating area for your family. We will seat people from the front of the room to the back of the room.
