REOPENING PCC FOR IN PERSON WORSHIP

COVID-19 continues to impact Pinellas County. We’ve developed protocols intended to provide as safe an environment as possible. We’re counting on you to help keep our community safe! When attending any scheduled event, you agree to consider your own personal circumstances and abide by all applicable church, state, and local safety protocols.

What We’re Doing

Here are the steps we’re taking to try to keep you safe and our facilities clean.

Limiting Capacity

Each service has limited seating capacity to enable safe physical distancing. Limited programming is available for children (varies depending on service).

Safe Distancing

Please leave at least 6 feet between family units in the Sanctuary and all common areas.

Wearing Masks

At this time, with the rise of the Omicron variant and cases in our community, Face Coverings are REQUIRED for ALL, in all PCC indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.

Special Elements

For Communion we use pre-packaged elements placed in individual bags and distributed in containers. Kneelers and other frequently touched worship fixtures have been removed from the worship space.

Contact-Free Greetings

Greeters wave a warm welcome, but do not shake hands while serving. Doors are propped open. We also encourage people not to gather close together inside before or after the service.

Limited Amenities

Refreshments are not offered, and food/beverages are not permitted on-site, since consuming them requires the removal of masks. Water fountains are closed. Restrooms are available and sanitized before and after services, with doors propped open where privacy allows.

Sanitization

The worship spaces are sanitized each week. Commonly touched areas, such as door handles, are wiped down between services. Hand sanitizers are available inside exterior building doors and at the Sanctuary doors.

What We Are Asking You To Do

Here is what Pasadena Community Church is asking you to do.

If You Don’t Feel Well

or have been around someone who has been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, please stay home and worship online.

Ask First

Please be mindful of personal space, as some may not be comfortable being within 6 ft.

Continue with elbow bumps, air high fives, waving of hands to greet people.

If you want to give someone a hug or handshake, ask first. Not everyone will be comfortable with hugs and handshakes.

Wear a Face Mask
(No Judgement Zone)

Remember not everyone is able to get a vaccine due to cancer treatments, or autoimmune disorders. Some individuals may not be comfortable getting vaccinated right now.

Keeping this in mind and our theology of ‘Doing No Harm,’ we require you to wear a face mask at all times while on the PCC campus.

Wash Hands Often

Please continue to practice hygiene and wash your hands often and for at least 20 seconds.

Avoid Touching

your nose, mouth, or eyes with unwashed hands.

Cover Coughs and Sneezes

with a tissue, and then please throw the tissue in the trash. Please do not leave in the pews.

If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze in your elbow/upper sleeve, not in your hands.
