Protocol for Sunday Worship

The following Protocols are being instituted regarding our Hilltop family worshiping together at the building. Please understand that we need the assistance and cooperation of all of our members in order to restore meeting again.

The Policy is as follows:

A.)  All attendees MUST wear a mask or some form of face guard. All attendees two years old and above should wear some type of face covering. Cloth or perishable mask will be available if someone forgets or is not aware of our policy.


B.) Practice social distancing. We will utilize all areas of the building (1) families only will be allowed to sit together in the main auditorium (2) everyone else should sit on the aisles and at least two arm lengths apart. In addition, we will use every other pew (3) members with underlining health issues or concerns should stay home or will be distanced in the Fellowship Hall or in the open overflow rooms of the main auditorium.

C.) No brother is to sit in the Pulpit. All Worship participants will go to the Pulpit from their pew seat when it is their time to lead in any aspect of the Worship

Service. Worship Assignments are to be given out the day before each Service.

D.) No microphone is to be shared. Each participant in Worship will have one personally assigned before each Service.

E.) We should discourage the using of songbooks. All songs and their lyrics will be displayed on auditorium screens.

F.) The Communion emblems will be given out before the Service so that there will only be one brother at the Table officiating. Ushers with gloves will handout Communion cups before Service or they can be picked up from a sanitized table and used cups should be left in the pew in front of them.

G.) The Offering baskets will passed by brothers with gloves beginning from the back of the auditorium to the front, including the overflow area and Fellowship Hall.

H.) There will be no handshakes, hugs or physical contact/touches among the members. Waves are encouraged.

I.) All Zone and Committee meetings at the building are suspended until further notice.

J.) All members should remain home if feeling ill, coughing or running a fever.

K. ) The building, microphones, pews, Communion table will be sanitized immediately after each Service.

L.) Leadership believes it would be wise to begin with just one Worship Service per Sunday (10 AM), then slowly included Sunday Evening Service, followed by our Wednesday Night Bible Study, then finally the Tuesday & Thursday Classes.

M.) There will be no Van Service. All members who previously rode to Services in our vans are asked to seek alternative modes of transportation during this time because social distancing is not possible in our Church vehicles.

N.) All attendees are encouraged to have their temperature taken before entering the auditorium.

O.) We will be dismissing from Service differently so please listen to our Elder(s) as they provide instructions during final announcements.

This Policy of Procedures is instituted because your safety is our Leaderships primary concern. Let us remain prayerful, careful and mindful during this pandemic.

 

Our Wednesday Night Bible Class will convene this evening Wednesday, September 30th, 2020 @ 7:00 p.m. 
we will be discussing ‘Lesson 7
