Regathering FAQs
Will we continue to livestream our service?
Yes!

What are we doing to minimize the spread of Coronavirus on surfaces?
All doors will be propped open so that no one has to handle the hardware.
Frequently touched surfaces like handrails, bathroom handles, and counters will be disinfected prior to and in-between services.
We will be suspending our coffee service and the water fountains will be turned off. Please bring your own water with you.
We will not pass the offering plate. We encourage you to
GIVE ONLINE. For those who prefer to give a check, offering boxes will be available at the exits.

How will we maintain social distancing during the service?
We are asking that you
SAVE YOUR SEATS​.
We will be using the main doors for entry. Greeters will guide you to the best exit door.
Our greeters will guide you to your seats in the sanctuary, leaving 4 empty chairs between groups.
We ask that you maintain 6 feet of social distance between family groups at all times.

Does that mean that we will not be able to socialize inside?
That is correct for the foresee-able future. There is plenty of shade in our picnic area to have a conversation in the fresh air. With two services the building will need to be cleaned in between, so exiting immediately after the service assists those serving on our cleaning team.
Please greet one another with kind words versus handshakes or hugs.

Do we need to wear face masks?
Yes. We ask that you please wear your mask at all times. This request both follows the spirit of the N.C. governor’s executive order, but even more importantly allows us to serve those who would be most at-risk in our church and allow them to still attend safely. If you don’t have a mask, we will have extras for you at the main entrance.
Our request to wear face masks does not apply to children, under the age of 11. Parents may decide whether or not their children should wear face masks while in our church building.
The pastors and music ministry team will not be wearing masks while on the stage, but will when off the stage.

Should I attend the service if I am in an at-risk population?
If you are elderly, immunocompromised, or have an underlying health condition we encourage you to consider not attending in-person services at this time but instead to continue to participate by joining our livestream at​
stonebridge.org/bridgestream​.
