COVID-19 Updates

I give you peace, the kind of peace only I can give.
It isn’t like the peace the world can give.
So don’t be worried or afraid.

John 14:27

Our Doors are Open

We have monitored guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe way. After a significant amount of prayer and preparation, we opened our doors on June 13 + 14! We’re committed to creating an environment that meets government recommendations for safety. To make that possible, our weekend services have been redesigned to create a sanitary environment that allows for physical distancing.

SUMMIT KIDS

We are Summit Church, which means our doors are open to the whole family! All of our kids classrooms will be fully operational, however, if you choose to put your child into their classroom you voluntarily assume all risks associated with exposure to COVID-19. As a parent, you understand that social distancing children is not that simple, but the safety and well-being of our Summit family is very important to us, so we have taken the following precautions:
  • Every volunteer will go through a screening process, including a health questionnaire and temperature check before being admitted to serve in the classrooms.
  • Check-in will be touchless for families.
  • Every child will receive a temperature check before checking in to Summit Kids.
  • It will be one way through the Kids Area for drop-off and pick-up.
  • Diaper bags and additional items will not be permitted in classrooms.
  • Rooms, toys, and surfaces will be disinfected after each Service and classroom use will be rotated each Service.

SMALL GROUPS

Small Groups are especially important during this time when many people have needs and may be experiencing stress or isolation. Most groups have now switched to make it possible to be part of your group online using free tools like Google Hangouts and Zoom. In some instances, groups are still having smaller numbers of people gather in person, while of course observing all the necessary precautions around group size, social distancing and asking those who are unwell to join online. If you belong to a Small Group and aren’t sure if your group is meeting in person or online, contact your Small Group Leader.
