Morrison Heights Baptist Church will return to on-campus worship services
Sunday, June 7 at 9AM, 11AM, and 5PM.
Everyone at Morrison Heights is excited to meet together in person once again. Our Elders and staff are dedicated to making sure the experience of returning to the church campus is both fulfilling and safe. In order to help us make your visit to the church as safe as possible, please join us in observing the following guidelines:
WHAT TO EXPECT
As we return to on-campus worship services, you will likely notice a number of changes. Each of these changes are in place to help protect the health of our worshipers and set their minds at ease. We wish to create an environment where Christ is the focus, and our anxiety can be set aside as we worship Him.
All of our parking lots will be open and available for parking. However, you should note that some entrances will be unavailable for use. Signage will be in place to indicate entrances that are not in use.
Greeters will be stationed in the parking lots to help direct you to the entrances. From the South parking lots, please use the main doors to the commons or the doors near the Children’s area. From the North parking lots, please use either the doors to the commons or the doors by the church office.
Hand sanitizing stations will be located inside each of the entrances. Greeters will be standing by with boxes of masks, and will offer you a mask if you want one and didn’t bring one of your own. Additional volunteers will be stationed throughout the commons to help direct visitors to the Worship Center. Please observe social distancing and touchless greetings while in the commons area.
The seats in the Worship Center have been marked with red and green markings to help maintain proper distancing between households. Ushers will guide you to seats based on the size of your household. Please be sure to sit in seats marked with green markings only. At the conclusion of service, worshipers will be dismissed section by section to reduce congestion in the aisles.
We will be conducting three, identical worship services each Sunday at 9:00AM, 11:00AM, and 5:00PM. Each service will be limited in duration to one hour in order to provide enough time for throrough cleaning of the Worship Center and commons areas between services.
An large team of volunteers will serve as greeters, ushers, cleaners, tech team, and worship team each week. Volunteers will be trained and prepared to perform their duties while maintaining a safe environment. Greeters and ushers will wear masks and practice both social distancing and touchless greetings.
