WHAT WILL WEDNESDAY NIGHTS BE LIKE AT SALT COMPANY THIS YEAR?
We know some of you are eager to gather again physically and some of you would like to wait awhile longer. Both responses are understandable and it is our desire to love one another with grace and charity wherever we may land on that spectrum.
As we move forward, we want to communicate three different ways to gather and worship with us on Wednesdays.
Join us online - via Facebook Live at 8p.
Gather as a small group - if you are comfortable with small groups, invite a few friends to watch with you.
Attend a live service - We will be meeting on-campus at Pasquerilla Spiritual Center in the Worship Hall at 8p.
We will be implementing several precautions to ensure safety as we gather together.
Touch Free Environments: We will be eliminating all contact points between individuals and willl also try to eliminate high-touch surfaces. We also ask that handshakes and hugs be replaced by waves and smiles.
Required Masking: We ask that you wear a mask at all times to our gathering to increase safety for those who want to attend but may feel nervous to do so. We will have masks available for those who forget one.
Stay Home If You're Sick: We continue to urge anyone who is more vulnerable to the dangers of COVID-19 to participate from home. We also ask that if you are showing symptoms, or have been in close contact with someone who may be contagious that you stay at home and join us via Facebook Live.
Practice Social Distancing: Please do your best to remain at least 6 feet apart from those attending the gathering that are not part of your household.
Download the Church Center App: This will help us know who was at our gathering for contact tracing purposes. If you are unable to download Church Center, we'll have staff available to help check you in.
We want to highlight two emphases: Low-Risk and High-Community.
Low-Risk: We will be requiring masks and will be practicing social distancing. We will also ask everyone to register either in advance or at Pasquerilla via the Church Center app (Download the App and search "Wellspring Church").
High Community: After Salt, for both our in-person and online options, we will have Connection groups at Pasquerilla -- we have plenty of rooms reserved for our groups to meet! (Same low-risk emphasis guidelines for in-person groups.) For those watching online, we will have a Zoom Group option for you to jump into with leaders who can't wait to meet you!
We think groups are one of the most important things we do at Salt Company, so Wednesday nights have been shaped for you to have a place for high-community in an atmosphere on campus that could be extremely isolating. Everyone who comes to Salt Company should jump into a Connection Group -- if not, you're missing out!
You can expect about 45 minutes for the large-group gathering each week, and about 45 minutes in groups after.
We know this is different and less than ideal circumstances, but we're excited to worship together a a family once again! In our excitement, thank you for partnering with us as we strive to live responsibly and with wisdom in this unique time.
Hope to see you Wednesdays at 8p!
