Masks are highly recommended for all services.
Under phase 1 of the President’s guidelines, “LARGE VENUES (e.g., sit-down dining, movie theaters, sporting venues, places of worship) can operate under strict physical distancing protocols.”
Church Leadership believes that the church cannot effectively meet under strict physical distancing protocols. The services will remain online for this phase. The services will continue to be at 8:45, 10:30 and Journey Kids at home at noon. Youth Services will be examined at this point and discussed for future consideration.
All Journey Groups will remain online via zoom.
Under phase 2 of the President’s guidelines, “All individuals, WHEN IN PUBLIC (e.g., parks, outdoor recreation areas, shopping areas), should maximize physical distance from others. Social settings of more than 50 percent of capacity, where appropriate distancing may not be practical, should be avoided unless precautionary measures are observed.” And “LARGE VENUES (e.g., sit-down dining, movie theaters, sporting venues, places of worship) can operate under moderate physical distancing protocols.”
Church Leadership believes that the church can meet under moderate physical distancing protocols by implementing strict in-person guidelines for church services. Under phase 2, the church activity provided will be on Sunday mornings at 8:45 AM and 10:30 AM. We will limit the number of people in our services by removing chairs and enforcing a strict headcount for the worship center. We will reserve the last 10 spots for guests. The 8:45 service will be for 65 and older as well as those who are vulnerable, and the 10:30 for 64 and younger and the non-vulnerable (the only exception being for a small number of volunteers). The 10:30 service, should be a family-oriented service, with kids’ elements. There would be no elementary and younger ministries available. Those doors will remain closed and locked at all times.
Journey groups can start to meet at restaurants with patios, parks or in peoples’ yards, but not in homes or at the church. Strict physical distancing is required, or groups can continue to meet online.
The physical meeting of the church will happen inside the church building. The church building will be thoroughly sanitized before each church service. There will be hand sanitizer stations at each entrance of the building for attendees to use when entering and exiting the building. There will be a “no physical touch” policy, and the offering will be collected in receptacles at the back of the sanctuary. Every other row of chairs will be taken out of the sanctuary, and every third chair will be removed from each row in order to satisfy the moderate physical distancing protocol.
Attendees will be asked to leave the building immediately following the service.
Online “Church At Home” and Journey Kids at Home services will still be available on our website, Facebook Page, and YouTube Channel for those who wish to stay home or are not able to attend.
Under phase 3 of the President’s guidelines, VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS can resume public interactions, but should practice physical distancing, minimizing exposure to social settings where distancing may not be practical, unless precautionary measures are observed.” And LARGE VENUES (e.g., sit-down dining, movie theaters, sporting venues, places of worship) can operate under limited physical distancing protocols.
Leadership believe that the church can meet under limited physical distancing protocols by implementing limited guidelines. Under phase 3, the only church services provided will be on Sunday mornings at 8:45 AM and 10:30 AM.
The physical meeting of the church will happen inside the church building. Leadership will continue to sanitize the church building between services and maintaining sanitation stations at each entrance to the building. The offering will be collected in receptacles at the back of the sanctuary. Full rows of chairs will be placed back into the sanctuary. Limited physical contact will be allowed by church attenders.
Online “Church At Home” services and Journey Kids at home will still be available on our website, Facebook Page, and YouTube Channel for those who are not able to attend.
Church Leadership will address the possibility of returning to a normal church routine after 2 months of being in phase 3, or once phase three has been lifted by the appropriate government officials, whichever comes first.
After phase three, church activities regarding Wednesday Nights, Small Groups in homes, Men’s Events, Women’s Events, Children’s Events, Church Outreach, and other usages of the building during the week will be allowed to resume. Any physical restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic will be lifted.
The length of time it takes return to normalcy after phase 3 will be at the discretion of church leadership.
As always you give online by visiting JourneyChurchDFW.Com/Giving.
Offering buckets will not be distributed during service. We will have two offering boxes in the back of the worship center in which you can drop your offering in.
On the weeks that we have communion, upon entering the worship center you will receive a bag with the elements. Please discard of any trash on your exit of the worship center.
During Phase 2 & 3 all family members are being asked to sit together and maintain social distancing.
