“Fortunately, our facility is large enough that we are able to easily ensure that everyone who is physically in the facility is practicing the physical distancing…”
The Church website list new protocols for COVID-19. Many church activities are canceled, yet the church remains open for prayer and worship. Solid Rock Church has implemented some of the standard COVID-19 protocols such as cleaning, sanitizing, temperature checks of employees. Yet they continue to have worship services.
The Church released this statement on their website today “
“Fortunately, our facility is large enough that we are able to easily ensure that everyone who is physically in the facility is practicing the physical distancing; we are providing additional cleaning and hand sanitizing stations; and we are holding some services outside to allow for more distance. We have canceled any youth activities; we are encouraging older members to stay home and access services electronically. We are not shaking hands or greeting members with hugs. There is no collection or communion in a normal sense, just prayer and worship. Our protocols are such that there is no contact. And we also use this time to educate and inform everyone on the best practices.”
