Indoor Service

September 13: This week we will be outdoors at 10am for SeptemberFest
Because of the limited capacity at this time, we ask that you please let us know if you are coming. The first 75 people to sign up will get a confirmation that they are on the list. If you don’t make it one week, you will go to the top of the list for the next week. You can RSVP by calling the church office and leaving a message (866-2308), texting Laura, or sending an email to connect@rockfordrc.org.
There are some who may wish to consider worshipping from home:
  • If you are part of the vulnerable population (over the age of 65, or if you have a medical condition or are on medications that compromise your immune system).
  • If you are at higher risk of having exposure to coronavirus (you work in a setting with definite or likely contact with people who have Covid-19, or if you have traveled to an area with a high prevalence or Covid-19 in the past 2 weeks).
  • If you aren’t comfortable wearing a mask.
  • We know some of you are excited to be back together, but please be wise in assessing your own health. Church is one of those places we often show up to no matter how we feel, but at this time, that doesn’t work. Staying home while sick is a way we love our neighbor, so please help us out with that.

Overview

Here’s what to expect for our indoor service:

Details

  • Masks are required for those 2 and over. We have individually wrapped cloth masks available for adults and older kids (that you may keep). A $5 donation to North Kent Connect is appreciated. We also have individually wrapped disposable child-size masks.
  • Bring your Bible (pew Bibles have been removed)
  • Please use Entrance A, which will be propped open. The elevator will be available if necessary, but we are trying to keep the majority of the building closed at this time.
  • Please follow social distancing guidelines: keep a minimum of 6 feet from all non-household members. We know you will want to handshake, hug, and greet each other warmly because you haven’t seen people in a while, but we need to save those greetings for the future.
  • Singing will take place only at the end of the service and masks will still be required. This allows those who don’t wish to be in the room during singing a chance to leave early (since singing can be as bad as coughing when spreading droplets).
  • No printed bulletins – everything will be on the screens
  • We will not be passing an offering plate. Drop boxes are available in the sanctuary and in the lobby.
  • The lobby bathrooms are available for urgent needs. Only one person/family is permitted at a time, and please use the provided disinfectant wipes and spray to clean all surfaces touched when done.
  • There will be no childcare or nursery available at this time. So just be prepared for kids who are restless and noisy. This is ok!
