With ongoing coronavirus concerns still very much a part of our daily lives, here are the precautions Parkgate is currently adhering to in this season.
  • CONSIDERATION FOR ALL ATTENDEES:
      • We recognize there are varying viewpoints on precautionary measures surrounding COVID-19. In an effort to love all of our neighbors well, we offer a masks required worship service at 9 a.m. and a masks optional worship service at 10;45 a.m.
      • All volunteers serving outside of the sanctuary wear masks, regardless of the service hour.
      • We do ask that all attendees wear a mask in the hallways and in our classrooms, regardless of the service hour.
      • Masks are required in both children and student programming for attendees and volunteers.
      • For those not yet ready to return to on-site worship, we are continuing to offer online programming. See the Online Programming bullet item on this list for further details.
  • ADHERENCE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING:
      • In order to achieve social proper distancing, every other row is roped off in our sanctuary and families are encouraged to leave a seat or two between households.
      • Social distancing is practiced in elementary – high school programming. Since distancing cannot be enforced well in our nursery – preschool classrooms, temperature checks are performed at drop-off for kids and volunteers.
  • INCREASED SANITATION:
      • Our staff has assembled a team of volunteers who disinfects our sanctuary and restrooms between services.
      • At this time, shared items such as Bibles, hymnals, and pens are not available in the sanctuary.
      • Bulletins are not distributed at this time so, if you’re a note-taker, we encourage you to bring your own supplies.
      • Hand sanitizer is readily available.
      • Children’s programs provide individual supply boxes for each attendee that are disinfected after each use.
  • ONLINE PROGRAMMING AVAILABLE:
      • Our 10:45 a.m. service is streamed each week on Facebook. Our 9 a.m. service is recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
