Sunday Service Guidelines

After spending time in Romans 14-15 and seeking the Lord’s heart in prayer regarding how to best love and serve our body, the leadership team at Summitview Community Church would like to announce some changes to our current COVID meeting guidelines.  

The following guidelines are our attempt to follow Galatians 6:10 (So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith) and to reflect Romans 14:19 (So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding) while ultimately accomplishing Romans 15:5-6 (May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ).  

  • We will not require the use of masks during our worship service, however each person may wear a mask if they so choose.  We desire to create an environment that allows you to freely practice your own convictions in this matter.  Masks will be made available at the door for those that want one.
  • Each Sunday our greeters, ushers and those who prepare and serve communion will wear masks while serving the body. 
  • Chairs in the auditorium will be rearranged to the traditional format, however rows will be spaced further apart to better accommodate distancing.  Rows allows us to more easily accommodate visitors, gives more flexibility for seating households of various sizes, and allows more location choices for each household.
  • We will no longer employ a ticketing format, rather you can select your own seats each Sunday morning in a location that best serves you and/or your family.  Ushers will be available at each entrance to help maintain social distancing between households within each row.

We realize that, in spite of the above changes, we will not be able to accommodate every personal conviction.  As such, we will continue to offer live streaming for every Sunday service.  We would encourage the entire body, but especially those that cannot join us on Sunday mornings, to stay connected with others in the church in whatever way possible, one of which would be involvement in one of the many Community Groups that meet each week. Don’t give up meeting together but consider how to spur one another on to love and good deeds. (Heb 10:24-25)

We love you church!
