We are excited to get back to church and are looking forward to seeing you and your family and friends! 

Here's some helpful info about Church-In-Person:

 

How we’ve prepared for reopening the church:

  • The church has been cleaned thoroughly and all touchpoints sanitized.
  • We will have doors open to limit the contact of common touchpoints and to have good air flow.
  • We are limiting the use of the restrooms to one person at a time.
  • The seating in the sanctuary has been spaced with respect to the 2m distancing guidelines.

Entering and exiting the church:

  • A greeter will be at the door to give instructions.  They will be recording the name of each person entering.  We will keep these records for 3 weeks.  In the event someone does become ill, we will be able to inform everyone so they can take the necessary steps to be safe.
  • You will need to go directly to your seat.
  • Following the service, we will have those closest to the door leave first and file out row by row, similar to leaving a wedding or funeral.  For those who wish to visit, it is encouraged to do that outside the building while maintaining social distancing.
  • The library will be open, following the service, for signing out or returning books/videos.  There will be a limit of one person/family at a time.  Please use the hand sanitizer at the door before entering.  

Worship:

  • We will still be running a Zoom Sunday Worship for those that are unable or not comfortable with joining us in person.  Click here for more details.
  • We ask that you wear a mask while singing.

Families with young children:

  • Our Nursery ministry offers childcare for children under 2 year old.
  • Sunday School has resumed for the children (2-years-old thru Grade 4).

Giving:

  • The offering plate will not be passed.  You may use the debit machine or put your cash or cheque offering in the box by the debit machine.  Pre-authorized giving and E-transfer are available.

How you can help:

  • Do not attend in person if:
    • you have any symptoms of illness (fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat or trouble swallowing, runny nose, loss of taste or smell, not feeling well, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea)
    • you have been in contact with someone who is sick or has confirmed COVID-19 in the past 14 days
    • returned from travel outside Canada in the past 14 days.

If any of these apply to you, please self-isolate and call Telehealth or your healthcare provider to find out if you need to be tested.

  • When entering the building, go directly to your seat.  If you have a jacket, take it to your seat with you.
  • Algoma Public Health has made the use of masks/face coverings mandatory.  Physical distancing is still required even when using a mask.
