WEEKEND WORSHIP GATHERINGS

Welcome back! We are looking forward to worshipping with you in person in our new building. Our in-person service times are at 9 and 10:45 am. Our aim is to prioritize both your health and safety along with providing meaningful in person worship.

For those who cannot attend or who might be uncomfortable joining us at this point, we will continue to provide the service for you to worship online at home or with a group.

WHAT TO EXPECT

With cases, hospitalizations, and deaths in Indiana and Hamilton County dramatically increasing along with Fishers moving to Risk Level 4 (Red: Severe Risk) our church will meet with the following guidelines in place. It’s our desire at Pennington Park Church to do everything we can to continue to meet in-person while making gatherings as safe of a place as possible to protect the health of our church and community. Below are some guidelines and information to know as we gather.

We thank you in advance for taking these precautions seriously. We understand not all of these are convenient and might not even align with your personal preferences, but we ask you to follow the leadership of our church and city officials as we seek to put the good of others first. Thank you for your understanding, grace, and desire to serve one another during this time.

Please reserve seats for your household prior to arriving. Attendees will be seated in the Sanctuary on a first come, first served basis. Once the Sanctuary reaches capacity, attendees will be seated in the Multipurpose Room.

Upon arrival, please enter the building and head into the Sanctuary. Door Hosts will greet you at the North and South doors of the Sanctuary to verify your seat reservation.

If you experience an exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed and tested negative for COVID-19, we ask that you please remain at home for the recommended 14-day quarantine period and worship with us via livestream. If you do experience an exposure, we encourage you to let a staff member or elder know so that we can be praying for you and determine if anyone else at church should be contacted due to exposure

In compliance with the City of Fishers Mask Mandate, all attendees who are five years of age or older will be required to wear a mask while in the building, including during the worship service. Please wear a mask that covers both your nose and mouth, fits securely under your chin, and can be secured by either ties or ear loops. Please avoid face coverings such as single-layered gaiters. CDC recommended face shields are acceptable if you have a health condition that prohibits wearing a face mask. If you do not have a face mask or forget yours, masks will be available outside of the entrance to our building. Learn more about recommended masks here.

Attendees will be seated with three seats (approximately 6 ft.) between each household. Upon checking in, ushers will escort you to your seat(s). Singles are welcome to sit with a family or small group member they’ve already been spending time with in-person.

If fellowship takes place in the Sanctuary, Lobby, or any other place inside the building, we ask you to maintain six feet of distance at all times.

To ensure a safe environment on Sundays, all seating and restrooms will undergo sterilization before and after each service.  Hand sanitizer stations will also be available in the lobby, and all staff will be self-screening for symptoms before arriving on Sunday.

Children’s Ministry will not meet through the holiday season. Children are encouraged to join us for worship in the Sanctuary. Subscribe to our Children’s Ministry eNewsletter to receive weekly resources to help your child engage during the worship service.
