Service Plan

updated for Sunday 10/25/20

We will have a contactless indoor service at The Boys & Girls Club in Dumfries at 9am & 11am (Directions). We will broadcast the entire service at 11am with a high quality Live Stream that you can view at home. 

After reading the Service Plan below, if you plan to attend the service in-person take a moment to fill out this form. We are asking those who attend to sign up so that we can maintain government recommended social distancing standards.

Childcare:  We are providing Pillar Kids programming for children up to 3 years of age during our 9am service only. Participation in Pillar Kids is by sign up only via the Worship Service Sign Up Form on a first-come, first-served basis. You can read about our safety plan for Pillar Kids here.

Online: We will provide links via YouTube and FB Live on our online page at www.pillardumfries.com/online. The Live Stream will start at 11 am and will connect you to everything going on in our in-person worship service.
 
In-Person: In adherence to VA guidelines for religious services we will be set up for a contactless indoor worship service at 9am & 11am in Stafford. We are excited to provide this opportunity to gather and look forward to a great day of worship together. Below you will find important information for how to participate and guidelines for maintaining a safe environment.
 
Here is the basic plan:
  • The Welcome team will greet you as you arrive and remind you of important safety guidelines that are posted.
  • The seating area will be arranged by household in spaces that are six feet apart.
  • The bread and cup for the Lord’s Supper will be available in disposable, individually wrapped packets safely spaced on tables for you to pick up as you enter.
  • The service will last approximately 55 minutes in order to limit the need for using the restrooms and to provide for a cleaning of the space previous to the second service.
  • Restrooms will be provided for one person at a time if necessary with a sanitation station provided.
  • Face coverings will be available for those who have not brought their own.
 
We will expect those attending to uphold the following Event Safety Guidelines:
 
  • If you are feeling sick, please stay home or seek the care of your doctor.
  • Maintain a six foot distance from those outside your household.
  • If you have children, help them respect the guidelines and boundaries for others.
  • Per VA guidelines we recommend you wear a face covering when inside public buildings or in close contact with others outside your household.
  • No hugging, handshakes, or high-fives with those outside your household. We know you will be excited to see one another but please respect the contact guidelines.
 
 
Whether you choose to attend online or in-person we look forward to gathering with you and celebrating Christ together!
 
Serving Christ Together,
Pillar Church Elders
