Covid Instructions

Following Jesus, Serving Others, and Sharing God's Love

Whether you’re visiting for the first time, or you’ve worshipped at Fourth for years, things are a little different right now due to COVID.

First things first, if you or someone in your home has any symptoms of COVID, please do not attend worship, or any other church function. If you get tested, and it comes back negative, you are welcome to join us. With cold and flu season upon us, we know this has potential to limit your ability to worship in-person, but in an attempt to care for our church community, we need to exercise caution.

When you arrive, we ask that you come in the double glass doors near the parking lot entrance on Union Ave. We also require that you wear a mask into the building. For the time being, we are also asking that you keep your mask on throughout the service unless you have a medical reason for not wearing one.

If you don’t have a mask, we have some disposable ones on hand for you to use. We also have a hand sanitizer station as you enter.

Once you’re in the building, you can grab a bulletin and head to a pew for worship. To maintain social distancing, we are asking that you only sit on the pews with cushions.

After worship, we ask that you either fellowship outside or head to the fellowship hall. Please do your best to exit the sanctuary right after worship so that we are not bunched up in the back of church.

A few other things to know:

  • Currently we are attempting to provide some level of child care during the sermon. Kids are welcome to join our team in the basement youth area to get some energy out. Kids are also welcome to stay in worship with us! We know they may make noise, but that’s okay!!!
  • Bathrooms are located in the Christian Education wing of the church. There is also an accessible bathroom near the back of the sanctuary.
  • If you are disabled, and need an accessible entrance, we encourage you to drive to the back parking lot, where there are parking spots, and an accessible door.g

We know this is a lot to be aware of, and we appreciate your help as we navigate the coming months. If you have questions, or would like to speak to someone, feel free to call the church office at 616.454.1561.
