BBCC's current COVID-19 precautions
We gladly invite all who feel comfortable coming to our in-person worship services to come! We no longer think it's necessary to advise most of the congregation to watch from home. Our services start at 10:30am on Sunday mornings. We will continue to make the live streams and recordings of our worship services available for those who decide to participate from home.
We are thankful that the number of cases and positivity rate in Brown County have declined significantly since December, but the situation is still serious enough that we feel that is it best to continue exercising plenty of caution, especially for those who are most at risk and those who are in close contact with others who are at risk. Out of concern for one another and out of respect to the governing authorities, we are asking everyone who comes in-person to adhere to the following guidelines while inside the building:
Social distance – Please do your best to maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people from other households. Greet others verbally.
Wear a face mask over your nose and mouth at all times if you can safely do so – We are aware that face masks are hazardous for some in our congregation due to medical conditions or young age. We strongly recommend wearing a face shield if it is hazardous for you to wear a face mask. If you are not able to wear a face mask or face shield, we request that you sit in one of the overflow areas since our sanctuary provides less room for social distancing than our overflow rooms.
Avoid attending in-person if you suspect you may have COVID-19 – If you have possible symptoms of COVID-19, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or have recently been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 or possible symptoms of it, please watch the live stream or recording of our worship service from home.
In addition to the seating in the sanctuary, there will be additional seating available in the fellowship hall and in the basement where the service can be viewed live on a TV or projector screen. The overflow space in the basement is set up as a family friendly area with plenty of paper, coloring supplies, toys, Bible story books, and other materials for children of various ages.
We will have hand sanitizer available in numerous locations, including every entrance to the building and every restroom. Extra face masks are available just inside the main entrance. In order to ensure clear communication, those who speak or lead music from the front of the sanctuary will typically remove their face masks temporarily. Rather than passing anything around, our bulletin will only be available here on our website, and donations can be given either online or in the offering box near the main entrance. Besides distributing prepackaged communion cups in a sterile way (usually the first Sunday of each month), the church will not be providing any food or drink, but you can bring your own from home to consume while you are seated socially distanced from others.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
