Hedges Chapel values your health and wellbeing. In consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic, church leadership created the following policies and procedures for when in-person worship at Hedges Chapel resumes on June 7 at 10:30 a.m.
For your safety, the following actions are being taken:

The Worship Service begins at 10:30 a.m. Please arrive a little early as individual temperature checks will be taken. Those individuals having a fever will be asked to worship at home.  There is no Sunday School or Children’s Church.  

If you are feeling sick, please stay home and worship with us on Facebook or YouTube (Sunday’s Service will be posted in the afternoon). 

We fully understand if you have reservations about attending, such as you are at a higher risk. Please stay home and worship with us on Facebook or YouTube (Sunday’s Service will be posted in the afternoon).  

Please follow the greeters’ and ushers’ instructions.   They are here to help keep us all safe.    

Masks/Face Coverings are highly encouraged (and may be REQUIRED depending on County level such as ‘Red Alert Level 3’)

  • Free masks are available for you (cloth ones created by the ECL or disposable ones)
  • Sit in designated area if not able to wear mask

Social Distancing: Respect others and be 6 feet apart

  • You will be seated from front to back, every other pew blocked off
  • Children stay with parents through Service.  The nursery is not staffed; parents may use it to tend to their child’s urgent needs and should sanitized after use. 
  • Families should be seated 6 feet side-by-side (opposite end of the pews)
  • Only do “virtual” hugs and handshakes
  • Upon dismissal, wait for ushers to excuse each pew (from back to front)
