We request that you honor these guidelines at The River:
    • Please do not attend services if you are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc)
    • Please wear masks when inside the building. Masks will be available for you at the welcome table, if needed.
    • You may stop at the Welcome Table inside the entrance for bottled water and a bulletin. Please take all empty water bottles and handouts with you when you leave.
    • Observe social distancing; families leave two seats between them and another family. Please do not mix or mingle with groups outside of your family.
    • We will offer overflow seating in the Kensington Cafe with a livestream of the service. We will not be serving coffee or pastries in the Kensington Cafe.
    • Please maintain a one-way traffic flow. Only exit the sanctuary through the porch doors marked as the exit.
    • Bathroom use will be limited to 2 people at a time unless a parent/guardian is accompanying a child.
    • We will only have nursery services available during the 10:30 service. KidsQuest children’s ministry will be available at both services.
