As we continue to work our way through this challenging time, we look forward to being together again this Sunday.  Here are some of the steps we are taking to keep everyone safe.

Physical distancing 

  • There will be no nursery or children’s church.  Families will be seated together as a unit in the Woodland Room in chairs that are six feet from other chair groups.
  • No one will be refused entry, but Conner Prairie has asked that we strongly urge people to wear masks when inside and moving about the building.  Once seated in the Woodland Room, you may remove your masks if you so choose.  We would urge everyone to comply with Conner Prairies guidelines.
  • There will be no donuts or coffee to maximize sanitation.
  • Children’s Activity Pages and disposable crayons will be provided.  
  • Additionally, Pastor Jerry has created a 40-minute children’s program that can be accessed during the worship service if parents bring screen device and headphones.
  • Please maintain the six-foot distancing guideline at all times (entering, exiting, and moving about) while in the building.
  • Please enter up the exterior ramp unless you are physically unable to do so.  If you need to use the elevator, only one family on the elevator at a time.
  • At the end of service, please proceed directly to the parking lot and “socialize” outdoor.
