COVID-19 Requirements

Persons 65 years old or older, people with disabilities, people with serious respiratory or
cardiovascular conditions, and people who are immunocompromised are advised to
remain at home until a later date. This applies also to anyone who has any concerns
over their welfare during this crisis.

  • Children’s activities (Sabbath school) will be phased in at a later date. This being said,
    children are welcomed to attend the worship service.
  • Seating will be arranged to ensure proper social distancing. This means that every other
    pew will be cordoned off and while family units that live together can sit next to each
    other, every other church member will need to sit 6 feet apart from everyone else.
  • Social distancing practices are recommended, which means that there will be no handshaking or hugging.
  • Face coverings have been mandated in the city of Nashville until further notice,
    therefore, we encourage the use of face masks. If you do not have a face mask, one will
    be provided for you.
  • When washing your hands, wash with both soap and water for no less than 20 secs.
  • Anyone who is ill has a fever, has been in contact with someone who has traveled
    internationally, or to a domestic hot spot within the last two weeks is advised to stay
    home.
  • Entry to the church will take place using the front doors only. The side doors will not be
    used for entry or exit except in an emergency situation where immediate evacuation is
    necessary.
  • Greeters will have a binder and infrared thermometers. Your temperature will be taken
    and you will be asked to record your name, date, time, and temperature. If your
    temperature is greater than 100 degrees, you will be asked to return to your home.
  • Deacons-deaconesses will be posted by the bathrooms to ensure than only one person
    at a time is using it (unless it is a parent with a child). We ask those who use the
    bathroom facilities to clean-disinfect after themselves. Disinfectant wipes will be
    provided.
  • We encourage the use of hand sanitizers which will also be provided.
  • Certain areas of the church building will be cordoned off. You are asked not to venture
    into those areas and if you have children, to make sure that your children are with you
    at all times and not walking around the hallways unsupervised.
  • Fellowship meals are canceled until further notice.
  • Since it is unknown how many of our members will be willing to attend if and when
    the church is re-opened, ANY MEMBER ATTENDING MUST AGREE TO ASSIST US IN
    CARRYING OUT THE ABOVE GUIDELINES. This may mean that you may be asked to
    serve as a greeter, taking temperatures, or as a deacon/deaconess, etc., even if that is
    not currently an office you occupy. Schedules will be done once we know who will be
    attending.
  • If you have an issue with any of the above guidelines that would prevent you from
    honoring them we ask you to stay at home.
