Refuge Community Church COVID-19 PROTOCOL
It is our goal at Refuge Community Church to worship God properly, as safely as possible, especially during these times. Below is an explanation of what you can expect regarding our assembling during COVID-19. We are meeting during our regular Sunday Morning Services on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. with limited seating
North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services requires masks to be worn in all indoor settings. We will check everyone’s temperature as you enter the building. Everyone is required to wear a mask before entering the church building and throughout your entire duration of the time while in the building. Masks must remain on and properly worn during all aspects of Morning Worship. You will be asked to wear your mask properly if seen not wearing it. Please do not be confrontational if asked to properly wear your mask. We want to ensure we are adhering to all guidelines and keeping everyone safe. Please wash your hands, remain physically distant, and wear your mask while inside. We ask that everyone be physically distant as much as possible in seating, using restrooms, and in conversations. Thorough cleanings are performed each week. Commonly touched areas and objects are regularly disinfected and sanitized. Hand sanitizer is provided at the main doors for use after entering and before exiting the building.
On each First Sunday Morning, during 8:30 a.m. worship, individual prepackaged communion cups containing the bread and the fruit of the vine are provided in sanitized Ziplock bags in the foyer. Bags are divided into single cups for individuals and double cups for couples and families. At the appropriate time during worship, we will be led in the partaking of these emblems as we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. When the Lord’s Supper is complete, please place your used cup back into the Ziplock bag and seal it. When the service has concluded, please discard your bag as you exit the building in the appropriate trash bins near the door.
For those who wish to give to the Lord in accordance with 1 Corinthians 16:1-2, a tithes box is located in the foyer, near the door, where you can deposit your contribution. Online giving is also available through the church’s webpage and through Givelify. You may also mail your contributions to 2314 L. A. Dunham Road, Fayetteville, NC 28312 or P. O. Box 2527, Fayetteville, NC 28302.
Anyone who feels like they have any symptoms for any sickness, feels like they might be coming down with something, or has been exposed to someone with Covid-19 is asked to stay home out of an abundance of caution and love for each other.
