HPBC Morning Worship Service Plans

Logistics of Sunday Morning Indoor Gatherings

Seating: 

  • The Main Auditorium will now be open seating throughout. We will no longer close every other row or require three seats in between family units. For any who desire distanced seating, two options are available:
    • Livestream will be projected on a large screen in the Miller Activities Center (MAC, or “A” building), where there will be just 4 seats per each large round table. Tables are spaced at least six feet apart.
    • Additionally, the Main Auditorium will have four sections of distanced seating in both rear corners on the main floor and in the balcony. The distanced seating on the main floor is specifically designated for the elderly who wish to be distanced but who would also have trouble with either the location or acoustics of the Miller Activities Center. The distanced seating in the balcony is open to anyone.

Congregational Singing: 

  • Congregational singing will be near the end of the gathering when we meet indoors. If any attending are uncomfortable being present during indoor singing, they may leave before the singing segment begins.
  • We welcome attendees to take the additional precaution of wearing a shield or mask both during and after indoor singing until they have exited the building.

Offering: 

  • Offering boxes will be available near the exits to the auditorium and Miller Activities Center. 

What to Bring: 

  • A Bible - the Bibles in the book racks will be removed
  • Feel free to wear a mask.
