For vehicles that will stay during group, please park in the upper lot by the main church doors and proceed to the student center. For students being dropped off, use the lower student center entrance.
Hugs & Handshakes?
We know that it will be exciting to see one another, and the tendency is to hug or give a handshake. We will avoid all physical contact a while. We are going to smile and wave a lot.
Chairs for the formal gathering time of youth group will be spaced apart appropriately. We ask students to not move their chairs to ensure proper social distancing. Chairs will be sanitized between youth group meetings.
In Common Areas:
Masks are required in all common areas while inside the building.
When Seated – During Program or Life Group:
Masks are optional/recommended while seated in distanced chairs for the program, life group time, or outside.
For all kids, parents/guardians, and workers/staff who plan to come into any OPC|M Students spaces, we ask that you take your temperature at home before you come to youth group. If your temperature is above 100.4 please do not come physically to youth group that day. If you do not have a thermometer at home, or if you forget to take your temperature before arriving, we will have a sanitized, self-serve temperature-check station available for use.
When you come to youth group, please be aware of the health of your family members and yourself. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and watch the livestream on youtube. Feel free to ask for prayer and we will have the volunteer staff team pray for you by name. You know your health best, so please only bring your healthiest you to youth group.
The downstairs restrooms in the church will be available, however, please try to utilize your facilities at home prior to coming to coming to youth group. Please note that the bathrooms will not be available for congregating. Bathrooms will be sanitized prior to each youth group.
The cafe will be open for sale. Two volunteers will serve students with masks and gloves.
All touch points will be disinfected between youth group. If you want to join the team who does this, please let us know.
Hand sanitizing stations can be found throughout the building. Don’t be afraid to use them.
The Student Center will operate at 50% capacity. If capacity cannot be maintained, a move to a larger room in the building will be considered.
We will have worship by singing.
