Reassessing The Situation
We will always reserve the right, should the need arise, to readdress these protocols.
Other Guidelines and Protocol:
- If only coming to service and without small children, please enter immediately into the sanctuary. Entrance through the west ramp door and Commonwealth/foyer entrances preferred.
- BULLETIN- Announcement slides will run before and after service. Members will also be directed to find Bulletin related issues online at erlangerbaptist.org. Paper bulletins will be produced if you would like one.
- RESTROOMS: Signs will be posted with proper hand washing technique and entrance/exit protocol. Young children should be escorted by an adult. Disinfectant wipes will be available in each restroom as well as mounted sanitizing stations outside each restroom.
- Those with any suspicion of fever or illness are asked to remain home. Aside: No thermometers will be used for entry. No sick protocol established beyond personal responsibility and common sense practice encouraged by our members.
- Tithes and offerings each week will be received via online, drop boxes, or plates set up at each of the three main exit points.
For those not yet ready/able to return, we will continue to provide an online experience via our website! We will be recording the 10:30am service each week and working quickly to make it available in the next couple days following each service.
We are so glad to be back and are glad to combine our members back together in one group, but we want to do it wisely, safely, and in a way that honors God and others! Please be praying for this process and how God wants to use you to help us care for the body and serve Him in corporate worship!
