We invite you to join us as we gather on Sundays at 9 and 11 am. We will be following safety guidelines and attendance will be limited. Read below for more specific information about what to expect.
We know that some of you are really excited to gather indoors, while others aren't comfortable with that yet. The 9 am gathering will continue to be livestreamed on both our website and our Facebook page so if you aren't yet ready to join us in person, we hope that you will continue to worship with us online.
Registration for the services on December 6 will be posted on November 30.
- In order to assist with physical distancing, attendance will be limited to 150 people per service. Registration is required. Click the button above to sign up for the service you wish to attend.
- Every other pew will be roped off and we ask that family units allow proper distance from others within the pew.
- For dismissal, we ask that each row exit one at a time, starting with the rows closest to the exits. Please take the time to greet and chat with one another once you are outside in the parking lot.
- A mask or face covering is required at all times for everyone over the age of 2, except for those on stage.
- Arrive early, but not too early! We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes prior to the service so that you can find your seat and be ready to worship when the service begins. We ask that you do not arrive earlier than 8:40/10:40 to allow time for preparation and cleaning.
- Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the building.
- Staircases will be accessible, but the bottom and top floors of the building will be closed to help us make sure those areas stay clean.
- Kid's ministry and nursery will not be offered at this time, but we are preparing for it and will communicate with families as soon as we are ready.
- Bring your own coffee! Our café will remained closed, but you are welcome to bring your own drink to enjoy - just please make sure it has a secure lid.
- We will not be passing offering plates or handing out bulletins. There will be offering boxes at the back of the sanctuary and you can always mail a check or give online. Visit the Hub for info about all that's going at Davisville.
- We are still looking for volunteers! It takes dedicated people to make things run smoothly on Sunday mornings. If you aren't serving already, please consider joining our hospitality, children's ministry or tech team. Click here to learn more.
Why do we have to have mitigation efforts, like distancing and wearing masks, for our gatherings?
It is our understanding that large gatherings that include singing, especially indoors, continue to be of higher risk for exposure and transmission of COVID-19. After researching the issue, including consulting with the Bucks County Department of Health and medical and scientific professionals, and learning from similar churches in our area, we believe the safety measures and precautions we are taking are appropriate at this time. These steps enable us to gather as safely as possible.
We understand some individuals would prefer to not wear a mask, but for the well-being of all and for the sake of unity within our church, we ask that each person (over the age of 2) wear a mask while on the church property. Masks will be provided for those who don’t have one with them.
Why is Children’s Ministry (including the Nursery) only offered at the 9 am gathering?
We are resuming children's programming at the 9 am gatherings beginning on Sunday, December 6. We will resume it at the 11:00 gathering when we consistently have a need for more classes and are able to secure enough volunteers.
If you plan to attend the 11:00 gathering or do not feel comfortable having your kids participate in children's ministry during the 9:00 gathering, we encourage families to sit together in the sanctuary. We believe this is a great opportunity for your children to learn the value of corporate worship as they observe you and others worshiping together.
When should I stay home?
Please stay home if you or someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19 and/or is showing any of the following symptoms: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. If you are considered especially vulnerable to complications due to COVID-19, we encourage you to join our online service at 9:00 a.m.
What will we do if someone in our community gets sick as a result of gathering?
If we are informed that someone in our community has tested positive while gathering with us, we will work with the Bucks County Department of Health on follow-up communication and procedures. While registration information may be used for contact tracing, the privacy of the ill and those in contact will be maintained.
Can I use the church building for smaller ministry gatherings?
Yes. In a limited manner, our facilities have been open over the past few months for smaller gatherings. You can fill out a request form here, and our current guidelines and restrictions are laid out in the form. We will continue to increase availability and adjust restrictions as we are able.
