Registration will end 3 hours before the start of each service time. Any issues registering please contact Lauren at

7. Seating – A seating diagram has been created to allow families to sit together while maintaining a social distance of 6 feet from others. If you reserve seating, please be seated before the conclusion of the first worship song. Otherwise your seats could be given to those who have arrived & did not reserve seating.

8. Radios – Various team members will have radios so that they can communicate directions & changes as they need to occur in real time.

12. Guests & First Time Attenders – Guests & first-time attenders will be invited to grab a gift bag at the connections table (but the gift won’t be handed to them).

13. Expectations – Our goal is to adhere to the guidelines given by the governor of Virginia.

14. Masks – We require you (ages 5 & up) to wear a mask as you enter the building and wear it until you are seated in your reserved seat. You can remove it for worship if you desire. But upon conclusion of the service, we require you to put the mask on again until you are outside the building.

16. Restrooms – Please exercise good judgment upon entering the restrooms so that social distancing can be maintained in this environment.

17. After Service – After service, team members will dismiss row by row (beginning in the back of the sanctuary) so as to maintain the social distancing guidelines.

18. Giving & Attendance Books – Everyone is encouraged to give online through SecureGive, by text to 540-680-3393 or by mail. However, there will be a place to give your offering at the doors of the sanctuary as you leave. The attendance books that are handed out will not be utilized at this time.

If possible please keep them for reuse in future services. Should you forget to bring it or need to change colors, there will always be an ample supply as you enter.

23. Final Thoughts – Please be patient, gracious & flexible as procedures are figured out & implemented. This is a tremendous opportunity for us, as followers of Christ, to be an example. As caution is exercised, do not let fear control you.
