Phase 2 of Reopening Begins

By September 13, 2020September 14th, 2020News
Starting Monday, September 14, we will enter Phase 2 of our re-opening plan. This phase will allow only First Lutheran activities and groups to use the building.
When meeting in-person inside the facility, please follow these guidelines:
  • Small groups may meet in-person inside with up to 12 people together.
  • Small group ministries, committees, teams and outside organizations should call the church office to schedule their meetings and learn about the new risk reduction measures.
  • Those groups gathering inside the facilities will be required to wear masks/face coverings for the duration of the visit and maintain 6-feet distance from one another.
  • Small groups that meet inside the facilities in the evening hours after 4:30 pm will be asked to wipe down the high-touch areas and materials they use with disinfecting wipes when they arrive to their room and again before leaving so the space is ready for other groups.
  • Groups meeting outside on the church property can have more than 12 people gather and will not be required to wear masks/face coverings as long as they maintain 6-feet distance from one another.
  • In the event that someone participating in an outside activity needs to use the church facilities inside or move around and interact with another person/household, masks/face coverings will be required during that movement.
  • Each small group leader will be responsible for contacting the participants in the group ahead of time to remind them of the risk-reduction protocols of Phase 2 and assess whether gathering in-person in the facilities includes all or excludes any group participants. If any group participant does not feel comfortable participating in-person, the group leader will work with the group participants to find a resolution (blended, all online group, etc.) to ensure that we remain a welcoming faith community.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office. Thank you in advance for your patience, flexibility and grace as we journey through the surprises of this pandemic together. God is with us!
