COVID Information

Current Public Health Orders state that worship services are restricted to cohorts of 25, that have no interaction with each other, to a max of 25% or 250, whichever is lower. This means we will 3 cohorts of 25 people open for registration. Here are how the cohorts will work.

Sunday School has been temporarily paused.

COHORT #A – DRIVE THRU DOORS
Enter & exit the sanctuary via the door by the wheelchair ramp.
You will be sitting in the front half of the sanctuary on the side/middle of the sanctuary that you enter.
If needed, please use the main bathrooms.

COHORT #B – MAIN STREET ENTRANCE
Enter & exit the sanctuary via the left side stairwell and sit on the left side/left middle back half of the sanctuary.
If needed, please use the chapel bathrooms.

COHORT #C – MAIN STREET ENTRANCE Emergency Doors
Enter & exit the sanctuary via the right stairwell and sit on the right middle back half of the sanctuary.
If needed, please use the bathrooms in the basement at the bottom of the stairwell.

COHORT #WA – YOUTH ROOM DOORS
This cohort is reserved for the worship team and those taking part in the service. Depending on the number needed to run the worship service each Sunday, the remaining numbers in this cohort will be reserved for family members of those in the service only.
Enter & exit the sanctuary via the door in the Cove. If needed, please use the bathrooms in the youth room.
You will be sitting on the side of the piano/sound booth in the front half of the sanctuary.
*Please only register using this cohort if you are a family member of someone taking part in the service.*

We know this looks confusing, but we will have greeters at each door and in the sanctuary to answer any questions you may have.

Pre-registration will be required for all cohorts and greeters will be at each door checking the list to make sure people enter the cohort that they registered for. Registration will be posted on https://semconline.com/register. We will have signs set up in between each cohort so that there is the least chance of cohorts intermingling. If we do not max out registration numbers we will allow limited walk-ups until we reach our capacity.

Community and discipleship remain important and valuable to us.  We continue to seek ways of being together in safe, healthy, and care-filled ways in the midst of this current COVID pandemic.

Connecting with people remains really important, especially in this time. Therefore, we want to encourage you to be intentional about connecting with our church family. Ask the Lord, who can you contact this week to connect with and encourage? We invite you to pray through the church directory.

Continue to pray for healthcare providers in hospitals and prersonal care homes.
