Our Response to COVID-19

Our Response to COVID-19

Updated January 19, 2021

We are excited to be meeting regularly for worship and Bible study. These have been trying times and the University church has done a wonderful job in being patient, kind, and Christlike in the midst of great challenges.

Here is what needs to happen for us to continue with our present schedule.  These requests are important and would need to have the cooperation of each one of us as we assemble for worship and Bible study.

  • Wear masks when entering the building and inside the building until seated.
  • If you forget your mask or do not have one, a mask will be provided by an usher.
  • Please sit in the pews marked by the blue tape. The pews not marked with blue tape are for those serving communion to be able to complete their serving.
  • Those using a walker or wheelchair are encouraged to sit on the center aisle to facilitate exiting the building, especially if extra chairs are lined up along the back wall.
  • All outside access doors will be locked, and individuals need to use the glass double doors opening to the parking lot. These doors will be propped open to minimize touching the doors and door handles.
  • For those who are high-risk or otherwise want to keep greater distance, there is a special dismissal so you can leave without fear of a large crowd.
  • You are not asked to wear masks at all times after the dismissal, but we do request that you wear them in the hallways, foyer, and other places that make distancing impossible.
  • Remember that wearing a mask is optional. However, wherein it is possible we want to honor all authority (Romans 13), be a good neighbor (Matthew 22:39), and protect the church’s reputation.

The elders want to thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.  We know that each one of you will make it your personal responsibility to conduct yourself in such a way that will glorify God and bring honor to the church. If you have further questions, please speak with an elder.  Thank you.
