Reopening - What to Expect:


Entering the Worship Center Building
Enter through the NORTH or EAST foyers only.  Our South & West foyers are closed. Greeters will hold the exterior doors open so that you do not have to touch the door.

Entering & Exiting the Sanctuary 
To assist with social distancing, once you are in the foyer, please enter into the Worship Center through the RIGHT double doors only and exit from the left double doors if you have to come back out to the foyer.  At the end of service following the benediction, everyone will be instructed to exit through the foyer that is closest to your seating section.  

Masks/Face Coverings
We are recommending you to wear face coverings for the safety of everyone in the service, but masks are not required.  Masks are required for all our volunteers who are serving. 

Seating
Our new seating arrangement allows the most people into the sanctuary while maintaining 6' social distancing guidelines betweens families.  Rows are spaced 6 feet apart.  We ask that you sit at the end of the row and allow 4 empty chairs between you and the person/family at the other end of the row.  Ushers can assist you to find a seat in the appropriate section for your size family. 
  • Families of 1-2 - sit in the raised seating or along the side walls where we have pairs of chairs, or at the end of a floor row (keeping in mind the 4 empty chairs between you and the next family)
  • Families of 3-6 - sit in the long rows on the floor (most of these rows have 11 seats, which allows your family to sit at one end and another family at the other end of the row.)   
  • Families of 7 - we have designated rows of 7 seats to accommodate these larger families. 
Greeting/Fellowship
We ask that as you fellowship with others in the service, you would keep with social distancing of 6 feet for everyone's safety.  After the service, we ask that you exit the sanctuary, but feel free to fellowship outside. 

Tithes & Offerings
Instead of passing baskets, we will have baskets on tables for you to place your offering in as you exit.  Online giving is also a convenient option. covenantpalmbay.org/give.

Children
Children are welcome to join you for the service.  At this time, we are offering nursery for kids 0-Kindergarten.  We will not be having Covenant Cove yet.  However, we are offering Cove Kits that children can use to stay engaged during the worship service.  Kits are available inside the sanctuary near the North foyer. 

Coffee/Water
We will not have our coffee carts or water fountains available at this time. Please feel free to bring your own drink.
