Regathering Plan-Stage 2
We plan to have 2 Worship services with a limited number of people in each service (300). Service times will be 9:30am (BLUE) and 11:00AM (RED) by reservations. Each service will have designated rows that you will sit with your family as well as designated parking areas (MAP) for each service. For those that are at risk or uncomfortable being in crowds, we will continue to have our online services at 9:30am via Livestream, Facebook Live and YouTube. There will be NO childcare, preschool, children, students or adult Life Groups in this stage.
Option for at Risk Individuals
You can join us by Livestream, Facebook Live or YouTube each Sunday at 9:30am. We will also have a service/fellowship every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10:30am in the Worship Center. That will include social distancing between family groups.
We will need several volunteers to help with parking, door greeters, worship section host, housekeeping (cleaning door knobs, surfaces, restrooms, etc...)
Protocol for volunteers will be:
• You will need to wear a self provided face covering (if you do not have one we will provide one) during your volunteer time
• Your temperature will be taken with a digital scanner upon arriving
• If you feel sick, please stay home
• We will have a short training before the service begins on Sunday
To volunteer please email Scott Morton at [email protected].
Q-Do I have to wear a face covering?
A-Face coverings are encouraged, but not mandatory. Westwood staff and volunteers will wear face coverings on Sunday mornings until things change.
Q-Will someone be taking my temperature?
A-No. The only people that will have their temperature taken (digital) will be our volunteers and staff who will be here to serve you.
Q-How will the facilities be cleaned?
A-The facilities will be cleaned thoroughly each week for the next Sunday. The use of a high volume ULV disinfectant fogger will be used the the high-volume areas on campus including the Worship Center.
