We are preparing to regather for in-person services as Chemung County begins the journey to opening-up. We have created and submitted to the county a reopening plan that is to be used for the first phase of opening. While we look forward to being together, you will see that things will not be back to normal yet. Please, if you join us at Breesport please follow the tenants of the plan. Below is a summary of some of the things that we will ask you to do that will be different from before. If you want a complete copy of the plan, there is a link in the last line to allow you to download it. Thank-you
Only come if you are well and to the best of your knowledge have not been exposed to the Corona Virus or are no longer contagious to others
We will be controlling movement through the facility for everyone's safety and to be compliant with CDC recommendations
When you arrive, please park in the large parking lot and come to the front doors of the building. Greeters will help you in that entrance only. Please wait with the greeter until an usher comes to take you to your seat.
Ushers will meet you at the front door and show you to a seat which guarantees safe distancing. Please sit where the ushers seat you even if it is not near your favorite seat. They will be trying to optimize seating so that all who want to attend can have a seat.
Once seated, you are free to either wear or remove your face-covering.
If you need to leave your seat, you are free to do that, but please return to that seat, and do not forget to wear your face covering outside of the assigned seat!
You will be dismissed at the end of the service and will be directed to exit via one of the multiple exits based on where you are sitting. Please do not 'hang-out' in the building as there will be prepping for the second service or cleaning after the last service.
We ask that you wear a face-covering anytime you cannot safely distance from others who are not in your family
Please put a face-covering on as soon as you leave your car and wear it until you are seated in the auditorium. A medical exemption will be made when necessary, please let the greeter know you cannot wear a face-covering and they will expedite your movement to your seat.
When you leave your seat, please put your face covering back on and wear it until you are back in your seat or in your car.
Be courteous to everyone. Respect other's space. Respect other's concerns.
We are asking that only one person or family enter a restroom at a time, that you wash your hands well with soap and water, and that you clean and disinfect areas that you have touched while in the restroom before you leave the room.
Parents, there will be no children, teen, or nursery programs for now. Please keep your children with you.
Please help us help you by letting us know if you plan to come and to which service. If a service is full, we will try to move you to a different service or seat you in a distanced overflow area to watch via live-stream.
Please do not take pictures in the church. If you comment on social media please do so in a kind and loving way towards everyone.
We will be taking attendance in case someone does come down with Covid-19. This is to protect those who might be exposed here, and will not be shared except in the case that someone contracts the virus. We will not reveal who was potentially ill during the service but would communicate to all those who might have been exposed. No longterm records will be maintained.
We pray for our flock daily. We want you to have a safe and meaningful worship service every time you are here. We hope the service will refresh you, encourage you, and glorify God.
