What to Expect and Re-Opening Plan

Senoia United Methodist Church



What can you expect because of COVID-19?

Senoia UMC has a Pandemic Crisis Committee (PCC) working on the safety measures 
that must be in place for safe worship. 

Worship will only be on Sundays at 10 am.

Worship will be outside until further notice.  
You may enjoy worship from the comfort of you golf cart or bring your own lawn/camping chair for outdoor worship. We will meet in the Meditation Garden and side yard. We think this will be a great worship opportunity to be in God’s creation. The CDC is recommending that being outside is safer than being indoors. 

What we are asking of you :
·         Do not attend if you are feeling sick.
·         Do not attend if you have traveled to a “hot spot.” Do not attend if you have traveled outside the US. Wait 14 days from your traveling.  
·         Masks must be worn.
·         Do not attend if you have been exposed to Covid.
·         If you have been exposed to Covid, do not attend for at least 14 days. Please consult with your doctor and get a test. Please let Ashley Jenkins and Lee Berry know ASAP if you are positive for the virus. We will NOT tell anyone your identity but we will inform those at worship that someone tested positive.   

What we plan on doing :
·         Following CDC, UMC, and Georgia recommendations. 
·         Ensure that social distancing is followed.
·         Train ushers to make sure social distancing is followed.
·         Worship will be 45 minutes. 
·         No corporate singing.
·         Allowing only one person in the restroom at a time. This ensures social distancing.

What is Worship like?

Senoia UMC offers a Sunday morning worship experiences. It is traditional in nature. While  worship comes from the heart and is not a style, we feel that traditional worship best represents our particular faith community. We worship at 10:00am on Sunday. 

Our service packed with deep theological meaning and planned in a very intentional way. From passionate music that includes a wide assortment of selections to inspirational and Biblical preaching, you are sure to be filled with God's Holy Spirit through worship at Senoia UMC. For more information about our worship service you may go to the worship page of our website.

What Should I Wear?

Simple. Clothes. Wear what you wish. We care more about you than what's in your closet, so come as you are. During outdoor worship this summer shorts and light clothing are certainly appropriate.

Where Should I Park?

Our parking lot is located on the Seavy Street side of the property. There is ample parking. Handicap parking is located along Bridge Street closest to the sanctuary entrance. Golf cart parking is by the front porch of the Fellowship Hall. You may drive your golf cart to the side yard to sit in during worship. If you have physical limitations, please drive your car up the side drive, move over to the side and enjoy worship from your car.

What Else Can I Expect?

When you visit, you will be greeted warmly by one of our ushers. Don't worry, we won't ask you to stand or do anything to be identified as a first-timer. But, don't be surprised if several people come and greet you before and after the service.
