Expectations for Returning to In-Person Worship Services

Here are a few things you can expect as the church at Wellington returns to in-person worship services: 

  • We will begin meeting together once again May 24th (Survey responses will determine times of service and the number of services that might be necessary). 
  • We will sing together, present our first fruits, share in communion, and share in God’s word to the glory of His holy Name as we worship our Lord in spirit and truth. 
  • We plan to have meaningful fellowship that respects our neighbor without focusing on the virus that has dominated the news. 
  • Please respect others' views on social distancing as some may choose to wear a mask (PPE) and others may choose not to do so for health reasons. 
  • We will not have Sunday school, small groups, or children’s ministry programs, at least initially. 
  • We plan to have prepackaged communion available for everyone to pick up as they are seated (provided the packages arrive in time). We ask that you safely discard packaging as you leave. 
  • We will not collect offerings, but ask that you make use of the wall boxes if presenting your first fruits in person. However, we encourage you to also utilize online giving, mobile giving, or text giving. You can also mail your offerings to P.O. Box 910606 Lexington, KY 40591.
  • The entry doors will be propped open at arrival and dismissal.The security team will close and lock all doors for security purposes after each service has begun. 
  • If you arrive late, please use the main entrance located on the south side of the building. Someone will open the door and help you find a seat.
  • The facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to your arrival and again upon dismissal (or between services as needed).
  • We recommend 2-3 chair spacing between families. Please do your best to accommodate your neighbor’s concerns and be understanding with visitors who may not be aware of our efforts to observe and practice safe distancing.
  • There will be greater distance between the rows of chairs, so while seating capacity will be reduced we still anticipate a meaningful time of worship. 
  • We have also designated overflow areas in the back hallway classrooms. You can take advantage of these rooms that will be equipped for livestream. 
  • We ask that you make it a point to use the restroom before arriving; however restroom facilities will be available along with a Diaper changing station.
  • Our pastors/elders will be available to answer any questions you have regarding salvation, membership, or counseling.
