Regathering Plan/Updates

Updated May 27, 2020, 9:15 AM EST
 

Beginning Sunday, May 31:

Hickory Grove Baptist Church will begin regathering on Sunday, May 31. Online Worship is encouraged and the preferred way of interacting at this time for each service, but there will be a limited gathering on each campus:

  • There will be Worship Services at 8 AM and 11 AM online and a limited gathering at our Harris Campus. 
  • There will be a Worship Service at 10 AM online and a limited gathering at our Mallard Creek Campus.
     
  • There will be NO Sunday School on-site at either of our campuses. 

  • There will be NO childcare on-site at either of our campuses. 

Do I watch online or attend on-site? 

Gathering everyone together for worship is the desire of Hickory Grove pastors and members, but as we are now aware, gathering presents a risk for increasing the spread of COVID-19 during this Public Health Emergency.  

If you fit any of the following criteria, DO NOT attend on-site: 

  • Families with any symptoms of illness, including:
    • Fever over 100 degrees
    • Cough or sore throat
    Shortness of breath
    Sudden loss of taste or smell
    Have been diagnosed with or been in contact with anyone confirmed to have had COVID-19 (in the past 14 days)

We also encourage the following NOT to attend on-site: 

  • Higher risk populations
    • 65+ years of age
    underlying health issues

  • Families with kids (no childcare provided)  

If I am comfortable and if I do not fit any of the criteria above, then how should I prepare for On-Site Gathering? 

  • We recommend everyone wear a face mask or cloth face covering. 

  • Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of each service. At our Harris Campus, please enter at the Welcome Center entrance or the Event Center entrance. At our Mallard Creek Campus, please enter at the front entrance. All other entrances will be closed.

  • When you arrive, proceed directly to the Worship Center and be seated. Please do not congregate in the lobby before or after the services.

  • Please maintain 6 feet of social distancing at all times, except family units. 

  • Waving is encouraged. But avoid personal contact like shaking handshugging, and congregating with others.  

Important seating information:

Harris Campus 

  • Every other pew will remain vacant with rope blocking the vacant pews. 

  • Use the ends of the pew to sit. The middle section will be marked off. 

  • At the close of service, dismissal will be by sections.

MALLARD CREEK Campus

  • To accommodate social distancing, every other row will be removed and we ask that you allow at least four chairs space between family units in existing rows.

  • Ushers will assist in socially distanced seating.

  • At the close of service, dismissal will be by sections.

What other precautions are being taken in accordance with the CDC guidelines?
 

  • Hand Sanitizer Stations will be available. 

  • Unused parts of the campuses will be closed. 

  • Facilities will be sanitized before, during, and after each service, including seating, door handles, and bathrooms.
     
  • All volunteers/staff will be required to complete a health questionnaire, wear a face covering, and have their temperature checked prior to serving. 

  • We will not be “passing the plate” for offering. There will be drop boxes for collection of offerings. You can also give online, on our HG App, or by mail. 

  • No bulletins or handouts will be available.
     
  • Bibles and offering envelopes will not be in the pew racks (Harris Campus).
