Important Church Safety Guidelines

Important Church Safety Guidelines

On Sunday, November 1st, we will begin opening our doors at 11:00 AM EST for fellowship. Your safety is our #1 priority and we’ll be ensuring you and your family feel comfortable and safe while attending our Sunday services.

We’re so excited to open up our doors for fellowship and to worship with you in person. You can learn more about all of the safety measures that will be implemented by reviewing our FAQs below. 


We realize that not everyone is ready to join us in person yet. No worries at all! You can continue to fellowship with us on our virtual Sunday services online.


Our Wednesday Bible Study sessions will be held virtually 2x’s a month by invite.


“I’m not comfortable returning to church yet. Can I still be a part of the Sunday Facebook Live services?”

Sure you can! We encourage you to continue joining us online on Facebook Live each Sunday until you feel comfortable attending with us in person. Our Sunday Morning Services will continue to be streamed every Sunday on Facebook. They are also recorded on Facebook Live and Youtube just in case you miss a message.


Will MCMJC have limited capacity?

Yes, we are limiting our capacity to ensure social distancing in our sanctuary and the hall area. Social distancing stickers are placed between each row vertically and seats for each row horizontally are seated for 3 people at a time. If the local, state and federal guidelines change we will update our seating limitations accordingly and keep you updated.


Will I need to wear a mask? 

We highly recommend both our members and guests to wear masks as they enter our sanctuary as they make their way to their seats. If a mask is not provided, we will supply masks. We will also have 3 different color bands to wear: yellow – you want to be greeted but social distanced, green – you want to be touched and greeted. We will be closely watching local, state, and federal guidelines to ensure all recommended safety precautions are implemented to ensure your safety.


Will MCMJC be screening those who attend in person?

Temperature checks are required for all visitors before entering the sanctuary for safety. It is also required for all our staff, members, and children. We ask everyone to use good judgment: if you are feeling ill or have a family member who is also feeling ill, please stay home and participate in our online services.


How is MCMJC cleaning its facility?

We will conduct regular cleanings before and after fellowships to ensure proper sanitation is done correctly. Additionally, there will be hand sanitizer stations nearby in the lobby and hand soap in the restroom areas.


Will restrooms be open?

Yes, all restrooms will be open and routine cleaning will be done.


What safety precautions and procedures can I expect for my children?

We are taking several precautions to keep your kids and our volunteers healthy and safe:

Children will be beside their parents.

Masks and temperature checks are required for both parents and children.
