Christ Church of Arlington
As we live into the new routine of gathering on Sundays, we will continue with our social distancing protocol each week, which includes signups for seating in the sanctuary. If you're planning on worshiping with us in the sanctuary this month, please let us know which dates you'll be attending by filling out the slots below.
To better enable easy seating in the sanctuary, please observe the following guidelines:
1) Usher-Directed Seating: When you arrive, there will be an usher at the entrance to the sanctuary. Please wait for the usher to direct you to a seat instead of seating yourself. We hope this will streamline the process, reduce uncertainty of where to sit, and allow us to have a greater understanding of when the sanctuary is at capacity.
2) Seating Groups: Each sign-up slot below represents a seating group. We believe that our sanctuary can safely hold 16 seating groups (1-5 members/group) plus a pew for those who are unable to wear masks for the whole service. Please see this seating chart to understand how the seating groups work.
3) Pew Signage: Each pew will be marked with colored tape. The yellow pew on the front left is reserved for those who are unable to wear masks for the entire service (see seating chart). Open seats are indicated with green tape, and closed seats are indicated with red tape. There are also numbers on the pews that are open for seating.
4) Fellowship Hall and Narthex Overflow: Once the sanctuary is at capacity, all other attendees will be asked to sit in the narthex or the fellowship hall. The service will be displayed on the TV in the fellowship hall, so you will be able to participate fully in the service from there.
Our other policies are still in effect. As before, please continue to show grace to each other as we regather as a community. This has the potential for awkwardness and irritation, but if we approach it with charity, it has the opportunity to be a sweet time of worship in the midst of uncertainty. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your shepherding elder or one of the pastors.
