SAFETY PROCEDURES IN OUR IN-PERSON SERVICE

Face masks will still be required for everyone when entering and exiting the buildings, moving around in the buildings, and while singing – but those who are fully vaccinated can take their masks off during the message. That part of the worship gathering is the lowest risk portion of the service since the only person speaking is on stage. 

 

  • Starting on Sunday you will also be able to seat yourself in the auditoriums, and we still strongly encourage you to practice social distancing. Our seating will still be distanced to help you do that. 

 

  • Most of our kids’ ministry safety measures will remain the same for now since children are not yet able to receive a vaccine and because those are classroom environments which require closer interaction than in the auditoriums. Those serving as volunteers in kids’ ministry and children ages 3 and up should still wear a mask. Parents dropping off and picking up their kids should also wear a mask while in the kids’ area. Parents may enter/exit the building any way they choose; however, we will continue to ask parents to use “one stairway up” and “one stairway down” at the East campus. 

 

  • Youth ministry safety measures will remain the same for the time being.

Frequently asked questions

SHOULD EVERYONE REGATHER NOW??


In short, no. While we’d love to see each of you, we know that in certain circumstances, the best thing you can do is stay home. These recommendations are meant to help keep you and everyone in our church family healthy. If you find yourself in one of these categories, we ask that you continue worshiping online and do not attend Del Sol Church in-person:

· You have an underlying health condition or compromised immune system.

· You are sick.

· If you have a confirmed positive case of COVID 19 or have been exposed to anyone with a confirmed positive case within the last 10 days.

· You have small children who may find it difficult to stay in a seat through a service.

· You are not ready to be around groups of people yet.

· You are over the age of 65 or in another at-risk group according to the CDC.

Whether or not you are able to attend to in-person gatherings at this time, the most important thing is that we stay spiritually and relationally connected as a church family – in person and online!
