COVID Safety measures

You can expect (as of October 9, 2022):

  • Masks are optional. Surgical masks are available at the door for those who desire one.
    • Following the City of Chicago’s COVID-19 Community Levels, masking guidance may change based on COVID trends as follows:
      • Low transmission — masks are optional
      • Medium transmission — masks are encouraged
      • High transmission — masks are required
  • “Social stickers” (see below) will communicate your comfort and honor God’s presence within our neighbor. When you arrive, you’ll choose a sticker to wear at church.
    • Red stickers indicate that you prefer distance of at least six feet.
    • Yellow stickers communicate the desire for a bit of distance, but it’s okay to give a quick fist/elbow bump.
    • Green stickers tell others that distance is not needed and a handshake or hug (with consent) is welcome.
  • Communion can be taken by coming forward and receiving bread along with wine/juice in individual cups (no common cup at this time). You also have the option to use an individual communion kits at your seat. You will pick up a kit with either juice or wine when you enter the worship space if desired.
  • We have installed three True HEPA filtration devices on the first floor capable of filtering the air once every 30 minutes or less.
  • Increased ventilation with open window and doors will occur when the weather allows.
  • No reservations are necessary.
  • Vaccinations are not required for those attending.
