Dear Valley Nazarene Congregation,

This Sunday will have the same guidelines as last Sunday. .

  • We may have 30% of seating capacity maintaining six feet between individuals or families.
  • We will have signs at the entrances, and we will ask anyone who has COVID-like symptoms and other risk factors not to enter.
  • We invite those with COVID-like symptoms and high-risk or vulnerable persons to please stay at home and take advantage of our on-line service at valleynaz.com. For those without symptoms and risk factors but who are more vulnerable, we will have an area where the service will be live streamed apart from the larger crowd.
  • We direct all those who plan to attend to maintain social distance, please be considerate of the health of others. (no handshaking, hugging, etc.)
  • We ask everyone to follow good hygiene practices. (Wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, cover a cough or sneeze, etc.)
  • Please note that due to the statewide mask order, face coverings will be required to enter the building and for the duration of your time in the building. Those 10 years of age and under and those who cannot medically tolerate a face covering are exempt from the mask requirement.  
  • We plan to have everyone enter through the front entrance across from bowling alley. There will be a brief screening process and then someone will direct seating to maintain proper distance in sanctuary. Restrooms will be available for one person at a time.
  • The service will begin at 10:15 a.m.  There will be children’s church but no nursery this Sunday. However, the nursery area will be available on a limited basis.  

We will do everything we can to try to mitigate risk such as cleaning, having sanitizer available, allowing good ventilation of the sanctuary and enacting the above measures. However, there is a risk in attending in-person gatherings of any kind. We cannot guarantee anyone’s safety, therefore those who choose to attend in-person worship services need to understand and be willing to accept that risk. If you invite someone, please share this information with them. My prayer is that this service will be a blessing and will glorify the Lord. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this challenging time.  If you have questions or concerns, please call the church office at (719)852-5858.
