COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

Below are answers to frequently asked questions:

  • Who can attend the outdoor services during April and May? 
    Everyone! However, we ask that those who think they may be sick or have a fever stay home until they feel better.
  • Do I need to wear a mask? 
    We continue to ask that everyone wear a mask when arriving, greeting one another, finding your seat, and exiting your seat. However, while seated, worshippers may remove their masks. If you do not have a mask, a hospitality team member can provide one for you when you arrive.
  • Do we get to sing together? 
    Unfortunately, no.  Group singing increases the chance of spreading the virus .
    We’ll still have piano music and solos.
  • How will we give our offering? 
    You may continue giving online or by mailing a check to PO Box 186, Central, SC 29630.
    There is also an offering box where you may place your offering as you enter or exit the service.
  • What if I have to go to the bathroom?
    Please use the downstairs restroom that can be reached through the back door of the
    church building. Our “Potty Patrol” volunteers will make sure the bathroom gets cleaned between each user.
  • Is there a nursery? 
    Not at this time. We encourage families to worship together!
  • What if I don’t yet feel comfortable being around other people? 
    It is perfectly okay to continue worshiping from home! We will continue posting the service online at facebook.com/mtzioncentral.
  • Are masks required for indoor small group gatherings (such as Sunday School)?

       Yes. Please wear a mask when inside the church building.

  • What if I learn I have COVID-19? 
    If you attended a service or small group gathering, and you learn that you may have had COVID-19, please let Pastor Jonathan know immediately at 843-251-3279 or mtzion@nctv.com. Your identity will be kept confidential. There are conference protocols that require the church to notify others who attended that service that someone may have had COVID-19 (without sharing who it was).
