Public In-Person Gathering
We know. Rules & regulations aren’t always fun. Now we know how our kids feel :)
Thanks for your cooperation. So for the safety of everyone, here are some basic safety precautions that will be used for this event:
Registration is required weekly (register below)
Guest Service team members will walk you through the process and guidelines when you arrive. But we know some folks like to know the details. They are as follows:
Reserve a seat
Anyone wishing to attend a service will need to reserve their seat online or through the Whitewater App. We will have limited space for walk-in people that didn’t reserve a spot. Currently, the maximum capacity of the Worship Center is 300 people. Reservations will be capped at 250 people to allow some room for walk-ins.
Worship Center seating
Guest Service team members will walk you through the process and guidelines when you enter the worship center. Leave three seats between each household and skip every other row.
If possible, we ask you to take your temperatures before leaving your home. If someone has a temperature of 100.4 or more, or are experiencing any symptoms, we expect them not to enter the building. Staff and volunteers will be required to take their temperature upon arrival.
The Ohio Department of Health requires that masks be worn while inside a building that is not a residence. Masks are primarily for the protection of those around you; this is an excellent way for us to care for our people. Please let us know if you need a mask.
Coffee and Water
At this time, Whitewater will not be opening The Landing Coffee Shop, have complimentary coffee, or have water fountains available to the public. We feel this is necessary in order to provide the safest environment possible for our people. We look forward to offering these items in the future, when they can be done safely.
Bulletins and Communion
Paper bulletins will not be handed out - yay for saving money and trees! Pre-packaged communion will be served by the Guest Services Team as people walk into the worship center.
Social distancing is a total bummer, but it’s important! While meeting, it is expected that attendees, volunteers, and staff keep around 6 feet distance and refrain from physical contact with people outside of their household. This means no handshakes, hugs, high-fives, shared food, etc.
Cleaning and Hand Washing
We expect everyone to use a hand sanitizing station when entering and exiting the building. The surfaces will be cleaned in between services on Sundays and bathrooms will be cleaned one at a time during each service.
Harbortown KIDS’ physical campus is closed. We look forward to being able to open this when it can be done safely. Watch Harbortown online!
Youth is not currently meeting on site. Follow along on youtube or instagram for youth church online @w.w.youth.
The Parent Room will be made available for nursing mothers only.
Volunteers will be asked to check-in at the top of the ramps by Doors 1 and 4 in order to sign-in, get a mask if needed, and have their temperature checked.
If you are not comfortable attending or the guidelines feel overwhelming, you may still watch online.
