Safety Protocols

The safety of our attendees, volunteers, and staff are our highest priority. We are implementing new health and safety protocols around 6 key areas:

 

 

Wellness: Anyone that is experiencing symptoms, has been around anyone that is unwell, and/or is in a higher risk category, is asked to remain at home and continue to watch services online.

 

 

Masks & Hand Sanitizing: If you decide to join us in person, we ask that you keep your mask on at all times, even during worship. We also encourage you to keep hands sanitized during your visit to our campuses. Disposable masks will be available if needed, and there will be extra hand sanitizing stations throughout the building.

 

 

Social Distancing: Individuals or families are required to maintain social distancing in the auditoriums and common areas. Auditoriums will have limited capacity so we will be incorporating a ticketing system. 

 

 

Smiles & Waves: It will be nice to see our church family again and we’ll feel compelled to exchange hugs and handshakes. However in this season, we’ll greet each other with smiles and waves instead.

 

 

Touchless Service: Our services will be as touchless as possible by holding doors open for people, eliminating offering buckets and worship guides, and modifying our cafe services.

 

 

Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitation: Our facilities teams have enhanced their cleaning and sanitation protocols in order to clean and sanitize our buildings before, between, and after services.

 

KidsPoint will remain online for the month of September as our KidsPoint team continues to prepare to safely open campus environments later in the year. If parents opt to bring their children into the service, they are encouraged to bring a tablet or mobile device and headphones for their child, and can log on to KidsPoint Online during the message portion of the service. Packets will be available for pickup with helpful links and activities.

If you’d like to volunteer to serve in KidsPoint upon reopening, please click this link.

Remember, the church isn’t a place we go. The church is who we are. Gathering, worshiping, praying, serving, and studying scripture are things we do as believers and followers of Jesus.

If you aren’t yet ready to attend one of our campuses, you can consider gathering in small groups of 10 people or fewer to catch up, connect, pray, and experience church. We have some ideas and guidelines listed below. More than anything, we encourage you to do what you feel comfortable with and what is best and safest for your family.

BridgePoint at Home

Some of us miss feeling that belonging and connection with others, but are not ready to attend a large gathering at one of our campuses. We want to encourage our church family, across campuses, to begin to get creative to create space for your people to safely gather TOGETHER at Home. We’re looking for folks interested in hosting BridgePoint at Home (could be digital or in person). If you would like to know more about what it means to host a gathering please fill out this interest form.

Here are some ideas:

  1. VIRTUAL :: Many folks do not feel comfortable or safe getting in groups of any size yet, and that’s completely ok! Did you know you can “gather” your people, digitally-speaking, on a Facebook Watch Party and be able to worship together? Interested in knowing more? Click here.
  2. HOME GATHERING :: Have you considered a quick panic-clean and opening your home to a SMALL group of friends or family? This is a GREAT way to hang with your people and get to experience what God is doing at BP together. Don’t make it too hard! Setup your tv/tablet/device in the largest space you have (or even in the driveway or back porch!) and hit play on either our Watch LiveFacebook or YouTube page when there’s a live service happening, or watch a service on-demand at a time that is convenient for you and your group. Go a step further and take some time to debrief the message and talk with each other after, just like we do in Groups. Have fun and don’t overthink it!
  3. AROUND TOWN GATHERING :: OK, so this isn’t technically “at home,” but for some folks or circumstances, it works better to be outside a home. Find a public location that would be conducive to gather with social-distancing and masks, text your friends and meet them there. As long as your device can play data from anywhere, then you can have church all around town. Tell your friends to bring a beach chair, or circle your cars or boats up at a park, or picnic blankets in the shade to GET TOGETHER. It could be anywhere, but at least you get to be with your people!
