COVID Update

What to expect for phase two services

We are making every effort to protect people coming to worship at our facility.  However, due to the nature of partaking and participating in religious rituals in our biblically prescribed weekly corporate worship, which includes singing, speaking, eating and drinking, such activities are all essential elements of the practice of our religious faith. We are taking precautions by requiring those who work and serve at Essential Church to wear a mask at all times when not singing or speaking from the stage.  Facemasks are a personal decision for those worshipping with us. Anyone who enters the building is an active participant in our church service and are assuming and accepting whatever inherent risk may be involved in such activities when they choose to join our constitutionally protected religious worship assembly.

Be Flexible.  Safety is first and foremost.  We will have several new procedures in place for each phase which will be an adjustment for all of us. For your safety we have contracted a company to disinfect our building electrostatically once a week. The disinfectant being used is botanically-derived and meets the EPA standards for use on COVID-19.

  • For the 10:15 & 11:30 services, please stay in your car until the parking team signals that the previous service is over.
  • Entering and exiting the building for services will be similar to what stores have done during this time.  Look for prompts on where to enter and be respectful of the 6′ spacing while on campus.
  • We have mandatory limits on our capacity, this might mean coming to a service that is full and having to change to another service or view the service from a side room.
  • Everyone in the building must checkin.  In the event we are notified of a potential exposure at our building we want to be able to let you know.  Load the church app on your mobile device on your way to services.

  • Please make your way to your seat as soon as you checkin to avoid crossing other attenders path.
  • Go to the bathroom before you come to church – bathrooms are open in the building.

  • If your baby starts crying, please take them to one of the overflow rooms.
