As we navigate the impact of COVID-19, as always our greatest desire is to be thoughtful, prayerful, and wise about the decisions that will affect our families and ministries in this ongoing and difficult journey. We also remain sensitive to the burden on our surrounding healthcare systems. As we continue to monitor local COVID-19 numbers, we find ourselves prayerfully considering how we might best serve our families and community, and have outlined the following safety measures for our large group gatherings on Sunday mornings and within our ministry areas.
This journey is one that requires frequent evaluation. Under the leadership of the Asbury Executive Team along with ministry leader input, the following modifications are now in effect with our campus operations. As always, as the numbers in our immediate area change, we will reassess as needed and update this information accordingly. We encourage you to continue to engage with life at Asbury in the way that best accommodates your needs.
Current COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Masks are welcome but optional in all gatherings. However, in the Traditional and Contemporary Worship spaces on the Madison campus, we have designated specific areas of seating for those that are more comfortable being surrounded by others who are also wearing a mask. We have determined these locations based on the least amount of foot traffic and best air flow patterns within each worship space. If you choose to sit in these marked areas, we ask that you wear a mask at all times. Attendees are welcome to wear masks in the remaining areas of each worship space.
Traditional Sanctuary – First 10 rows of pews starting from the chancel, on the right side of the room.
Contemporary Worship Space – Floor seating on the far right side of the room closest to the windows.
Masks are welcome but optional in all gatherings.
In all venues, masks are available at each entrance. If you do not feel comfortable entering this environment, please continue to join us for our Mobile Worship services on Sundays at 10am during this time.
Staff & Volunteer Masking
Masks are welcome but optional for all staff, volunteers, and attendees.
Seating Our large gathering spaces allow for plenty of room during our worship services to accommodate any seating preference. Mask zones are now designated in our Contemporary & Traditional services for those who are more comfortable being surrounded by others who are also wearing a mask.
Sanitation We have contracted our cleaning services to be present during the entire Sunday morning experience and to continually sanitize all common areas such as door handles, countertops, and bathrooms, as well as between services. Hand sanitation stations are available at each entrance/exit and throughout common areas.
Offering & Communion Offering and communion times will continue to remain contactless.
Adult Groups Classroom capacity requirements have now been removed. Each Sunday Morning and weekly group are welcome to wear masks, but masks remain optional.
Kids and Students Ministries Masks are welcome but optional for staff, volunteers, and families attending Asbury Kids and Students from preschool through 12th Grade on both our Madison & Harvest campuses.
Office Visits Masks are welcome but optional for all staff and visitors. Staff will continue to be happy to honor visitor requests to mask.
