Attendee Information and Guidelines

After you’ve read the guidelines, please REGISTER to attend using the link at the bottom of this page. 

As we continue to manage the ever-changing situation and guidelines for in-person gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, our Directional Team has determined the following values to guide our policies for indoor worship services:

  1. Following Jesus’ mission
  2. Prioritizing our people’s safety & conscience
  3. Offering wise transparency
  4. Honoring our governing authorities, which means we will follow state and CDC guidelines until they violate God’s Word or inhibit our Christ-mandated mission
  5. Reduce the need to cancel in-person services

 

We have written our policy with the understanding that there are low-risk activities and high-risk activities when it comes to the spread of COVD-19, along with other viruses:

  • Low risk exposure: all parties wearing masks, with social distancing, with exposure under 15 minutes
  • High risk exposure: unmasked exposure, especially for an extended period of time and indoors 

While there is risk of exposure in any public setting with people present, our goal is to maintain low-risk exposure whenever possible, and to serve all our church family members during this difficult season. If you have questions regarding our policy as outlined below, please contact the church office at villagechurch@vcob.org.

Finally, if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 or any other illness, we would love to be able to support you however we can. Our staff, elders, deacons, Share the Care team, and church body are eager to pray for you, bring you meals, or encourage you should you find yourself affected. Please let us know how we can best help you and your family.
