As we continue to ensure everyone’s safety during this unprecedented time, we continue to evaluate opportunities to reopen aspects of in-person worship and building use.
Currently, we offer two worship services: in-person at 8:30 AM, and streaming on Zoom and Facebook at 11:00 AM. We plan to offer a hybrid service beginning June 6, 2021 for the summer worship schedule at 10:00 AM. Worshipers can participate in the hybrid service from the sanctuary or online. Based on current CDC and state guidelines, anyone who is unvaccinated will be asked to wear masks throughout the service. Those who are fully vaccinated may choose not to wear a mask, but all worshippers will be asked to wear masks when they are singing, regardless of vaccination status. Sanctuary capacity should allow for approximately 42 worshipers, who have made a reservation to attend and are physically distanced. Those who wish to worship from home will still be able to participate via Zoom or Facebook. Worship in the Woods is also being planned for our outdoor chapel.
Church committees will be permitted to have limited attendance meetings beginning May 1st. Moderators and Committee Chairs are required to reserve their meeting space through the electronic sign-up provided. All attendees will be required to follow all COVID safety guidelines. Moving forward, we will be making many of our meetings a hybrid experience – offering persons the option of joining in-person or virtually.
We value the opportunity to support several organizations with meeting space. Provided that health trends continue in a positive direction, we hope to welcome community groups back into our facility by July 1.
Social Media Policy Adopted
Bon Air Presbyterian Church uses photography to helps us flourish as a faith community. We highlight the work of those who serve in less visible roles and communicate our mission as a church via our publications, website and social media. Photographs also provide important ways for us to bear testimony, both now and to future generations, to the work God is doing in our life together as a body of believers.
In this 24/7 digital age, BAPC has become increasingly aware of the need to protect the privacy of those who may be in images that are used by it in printed publications and online. To address those concerns and other issues, the Session adopted a Social Media Policy that sets forth guidelines for images commissioned and used by our church. For additional information about the policy, contact Ted McCormack.
The prophet Micah reminds us we are to “do justice, to love mercy, and walk humbly”.
