Campus Re-Open @ The Ridge 

UPDATED GUIDELINES

This Sunday May, 31st we will CONTINUE to Open our church Campus!
We want to make sure we are following recommendations from local officials, so we will open for our Worship Gathering with some limited guidelines.
These guidelines are based on those issued by the Governor’s Office and also recommendations
from the GA Baptist Mission Board. These will be evaluated and updated week to week as things change. PLEASE NOTE some updates for this week, May 31st 

  • Please, you SHOULD CONTINUE TO STAY HOME and WORSHIP WITH US ONLINE if…

    • …you simply aren’t comfortable venturing out. We totally understand!

    • …you are exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough, sneezing, etc. PLEASE STAY HOME

    • …you have been around someone who is or has been sick PLEASE STAY HOME

    • …you are over 65 it is recommended that you stay home also. However, if you are
        comfortable coming, you are welcome to do so!

    • …you have elderly individuals living with you 

    • …you are considered part of an “at-risk” group (i.e. underlying health issues) please stay home

  • Please note that Complete disinfecting and sanitizing of building has been done. 

  • RidgeKidz Jr.(preschool) AND RidgeKidz (elementary) will be open – limited to 10 children in classroom per new governor’s guidelines and GA Baptist Mission Board recommendations; 

  • In the event we are unable to have RidgeKidz for any reason, “Busy Bags” will be made available for elementary age children which will have been sanitized and which they can take home.

  • Worship center distancing set up (we actually think you’ll like it!). All seating is set up to allow for social distancing in sections of 2, 3, 4, or 5 chairs. This will allow for families to sit together.

  • You should only sit with people whom you share a household with. Please consider that when choosing a section in which to sit (i.e. two persons should not choose a section with five chairs)

  • When entering the church facility, all individuals should go directly to the Worship Center, unless you are checking in your preschooler to RidgeKidz Jr.

  • No coffee bar will be open at the moment. However we are trying to have a modified format this Sunday! It will be water and iced coffee in bottles. (if you want hot you’ll need to bring your own)

  • Upon the completion of our Worship Gathering, we will dismiss by sections and ask that everyone exit directly outside. Multiple doors will be open to make this easier.

Parents of RidgeKidz and RidgeKidz Jr. area will be dismissed first so they can pick up their kids.

  • All volunteers will be temperature checked prior to serving

  • Restroom usage: We have relaxed the limited restroom usage and cleaning after use requirements. Our restrooms can only accommodate 3-4 people anyway, so per most recent recommendations, we will not limit restroom use. We do ask that children be accompanied by parents. It is not necessary for you to clean surfaces after use.

  • Masks are not required, however if you feel more comfortable wearing one, do so.

  • Offering buckets will not be passed as usual, we will continue to encourage online giving, but there will be offering boxes you can deposit your offering in available at the entrance/exit doors.
