COVID-19 UPDATES.

Here's how we're responding as a church to Dane County's Mask Mandate:

CONTACT US  GIVE NOW  REQUEST CARE

In light of Face Covering Emergency Order #2 from Public Health Madison & Dane County, we're making the following changes to our Sunday services.

SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES

  • We do not have capacity limits for services.
  • Signs are posted indicating the current Dane County order mask requirements.
  • We will continue having an outdoor lobby as long as weather permits. When we face poor weather conditions, food and beverages will be served inside the staff/prayer room after services only. The regular indoor lobby may be used like normal for people to mingle before and after services.
  • We will continue live-streaming our 9am service, and for the time being, we'll keep our 2nd services at 11am.

GENERAL BUILDING USAGE

  • People who wish to meet at HPC should contact Kelli to schedule a space per normal procedure.
  • The Dane County Emergency Order requires that we have a sign posted in a visible location indicating the requirements of the order.

SMALL GROUPS

  • The current order requires that masks be worn "In any enclosed space open to the public where other people, except for members of the person’s own household or living unit are present." Given that homes are not spaces open to the public, we are not requiring that a small group meeting in a home is required to wear masks—this decision is left up to the host. We encourage groups to meet in-person rather than virtually when possible, but ultimately this decision is left up to the leaders and their group.
  • Micah Center rooms are still available for groups to reserve if any would prefer to meet in a larger space. Please contact Nellie if you would like to do so.

YOUTH MINISTRY

The same guidelines that apply to our general congregation will apply to our youth and the adults working with them.

KIDS MINISTRY

What will remain the same:
  • Our current Wellness policy, found here, remains in effect. Children showing any symptoms that may be COVID-19 should remain at home. Children who test positive for COVID-19 should follow current CDC and Dane County Department of Health guidelines for quarantine. (Remember, there is an inherent risk in being together regardless of the presence of COVID.)
  • All KidsMin volunteers serving in classrooms and nurseries will be masked, regardless of vaccination status. We will revisit this policy each month, and we feel we need time to consider it further.
  • Cleaning practices will remain the same within KidsMin spaces, including hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer.
  • While distancing will not be possible for all activities, we will continue maintaining it as much as is reasonable for the age of the children.
What is changing:
  • Signing up before Sunday is no longer required. HOWEVER, our classrooms do have capacity limits based on size and safe staffing. If a classroom fills to the room capacity, it will be closed. This does include the nurseries. If a classroom is full based on staffing, a parent may be asked to stay in the classroom and serve to keep our adult-to-child ratios within the required limits. If adequate staffing or step-in volunteers aren't available, the classroom will be considered full and closed for the service. Our current classroom capacity limits are as follows: Infant Nursery: 6 / Toddler Nursery: 12 / Twos, Threes, and Fours Classes: 15 / Grade School: 25
  • The New Guest Check-in station will return to the main lobby. At this time, there will continue to be a self check-in station and a manned check-in station in the KidsMin wing of the building by the school entrance for both new guests and those not comfortable with self check-in. For the summer, a self check-in station will be available near the art room by Micah A.
  • The Dane County Order requires masks for children age 2 or older. Considering the developmental abilities of children, we will follow this to the best of our ability.

This list may not be exhaustive, but we will continue to update this page with any changes. Thank you for your patience!
