Sunday Service Registration

Registration Process

Our two services meet in-person at 9:00am and 11:15am with 15% capacity. That means that, on top of our volunteer team, we will have 70 attendees. Please note that you will need to register each week for services you will be attending. The link to register is below. You will need to register each person in your family group individually. All family members or guests need to be registered so that we can keep within the worship centre capacity. Please note- you will receive an email response to confirm your registration. If you know of someone who does not have access to, or a comfort level with, technology, we would encourage you to help them register or advise them to call the church for assistance

There are no childcare or children's programs available at this time.

COVID-19 Sunday Information

You will be asked to answer a pre-screening set of health questions as a part of the registration process.

These questions will be as follows:

  • Do you have any of the following new or worsening symptoms or signs? Fever, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing or nasal congestion (in absence of underlying reasons for symptoms such as seasonal allergies and post nasal drip), hoarse voice, difficulty swallowing, new smell or taste disorder(s), nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, unexplained fatigue/malaise, chills, headache.

  • Have you travelled outside of Canada or had close contact with anyone that has travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days?

  • Are you awaiting a COVID19 test result?

  • Have you had close contact with anyone with respiratory illness or a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19?

 

We are asking that anyone who answers ‘yes’ to these questions not to register. Please stay home and enjoy our online worship gathering.

 

Please note the following before registering:

  • Please use caution if you are a member of a vulnerable age group. We strongly encourage those with a compromised immune system to stay home at this time and enjoy the online worship gathering.

  • Masks: Due to the local government’s mandate, masks need to be worn throughout your time in the building (entry, throughout the service, and until you have exited the building). At all services, we will adhere to public health’s recommendations regarding exemptions:

    • Children under the age of five.

    • People with a medical reason for not wearing a mask (breathing challenges, hearing, asthma, anxiety)
       

As a church family, we are committed to helping those with accessibility challenges and medical conditions that prohibit wearing a mask. Please make yourself known to the greeters outside the building and they will assist you in entering.

  • Everyone joining us must continue to follow public health advice, including practicing physical distancing, wearing a face covering, washing hands frequently and thoroughly, and avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • There will be no child care (nursery or preschool) this Sunday. Please enjoy the service with your children seated with you. Children under 12 need to be accompanied to the washroom lineup by an adult. The screens in the atrium will broadcast the service if you need a spot to take a restless child.

  • No food or beverages will be permitted in the church building. If you need to bring water with you, please ensure that you take all water containers with you as you leave.

  • No offering will be taken during the worship gathering so please continue to use the online giving options. A box to deposit offering envelopes will also be available at the exit doors as you leave.

  • The church has been cleaned and sanitized prior to your arrival and will be cleaned and sanitized after you leave. Grandview has chosen to utilize a fogger, used in cinema applications, in combination with a cleaning chemical called Vital Oxide to disinfect areas of the church building that are in use. Vital Oxide is a hospital grade disinfectant that is not hazardous and is proven to kill the coronavirus. We will also continue to frequently wipe down all contact surfaces and are using a detailed checklist to ensure that our enhanced cleaning measures are being consistently executed.

  • Washrooms will be open (upper main hall washrooms, including the family washroom) but we encourage people to use the washroom at home before arriving so that we can limit line-ups and the number of people moving around during and after the service.

 

Arriving at the church

  • Because entry to the church takes longer than in pre-COVID days, you are encouraged to give yourself extra time in order to be seated by the beginning of the service. The doors will open at 8:40am for the first service and 10:55am for the second service.

  • After parking your car, please maintain appropriate physical distancing as you approach the building. Please line up outside, using the marks on the sidewalk to continue to maintain physical distancing.

  • Entry doors to the building are at each end of the atrium and will be clearly marked. Exit doors will be the main doors from pre-COVID days.

  • Please make sure that your mask is on when entering the building. 

  • Please use the hand sanitizer station (at each door to the sanctuary) before entry.

  • Ensure that you are maintaining appropriate physical distancing while moving within the building.

  • The ushers will direct you to a seat in an open row. In order to fit everyone (30%) into the sanctuary, we are asking you to be flexible and sit where the usher directs you. Please go directly to your seat and remain there for the duration of the service. Only exit during the service if absolutely necessary.

 

Leaving the church

  • Wait for designated ushers to indicate that your seating row can exit before leaving your seat. We will be dismissing from the back rows first, and moving row by row up to the front.

  • Please leave your mask on until you have left the building.

  • Ensure that you continue to maintain appropriate physical distancing while exiting through the sanctuary and atrium, and keep moving so that others can exit behind you.

  • Please use the hand sanitizer at the exits before leaving.

  • As you exit the building, please keep moving away from the doors so that those exiting behind you will be able to keep the appropriate physical distance.

  • For our health, and our witness to our neighbours, please continue to maintain appropriate physical distancing as you connect with each other in the parking lot.

 

We are looking forward to seeing many of you in person on Sunday!
