How We’re Regathering at Gateway

Cristina Adams / June 3, 2020

8:00am • 9:30am • 11:00am

The church of Jesus has never been closed, but we’re thrilled to regather. We want to do it lovingly, with care and compassion. Take a look at our approach below to learn how we plan to do our best to keep you safe and healthy.

Our Approach

We will maintain a friendly environment while implementing common-sense precautions.
We will be driven by trust and guidance, not policy and rules.
We will honor and respect those who stay home.

Common Sense Precautions

Capacity in worship services will be reduced to allow for spacing.

Doors will remain open longer to allow for entry without contact.
All high-touch surfaces will be sanitized between services.
Greeters and ushers will interact without contact.
Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the campus.

A digital version of the bulletin and Connection Card will be accessible online.
There will be no coffee or tea served but water will be available if you bring a bottle.
We ask and expect all adults & kids older than kindergarten to wear masks at the 8:00am service. Masks are optional at the 9:30am & 11:00am service

Communion will be individually packaged for minimizing touch.

Redemption Kids for Birth-5th Grade
Available at 8:00am • 9:30am • 11:00am

We’ve always been committed to providing a safe, secure, clean, fun, and Jesus-focused ministry for kids at Redemption Gateway. Here are a few of the added precautions we’re taking as we care for your children.

Classes open 15 minutes prior to service and close 10 minutes after. Parents must pick up immediately following the service to allow time for sanitizing.
Children must be symptom-free for 24 hours, showing no signs of cough, sneezing, discharge, or flu-like symptoms unrelated to pre-existing conditions.
Activities will be carefully chosen to limit contact, while recognizing that distancing between children (especially young children) is not possible.
Staff and team members will follow sanitizing and hand-washing procedures. Sanitized toys will be provided for preschool children at each service.
There will be no snacks. Any cup/bottle must come labeled with your child’s name.
Parents should be diligent to teach hand-washing procedures (including washing hands for at least 20 seconds) before allowing their children to participate.
