Southpoint will continue having worship gatherings at both our Trenton and Allen Park locations without needing to reserve a seat moving forward.
We will continue our service online for those that do not feel comfortable attending in-person: Sat 6 PM / Sun. 9:30 & 11:15 AM.
The Elders have agreed to continue to be open providing the following environment:
No Kids Ministry
Families can sit together in the auditorium. If you have a restless baby or young child, you’re encouraged to sit in the lobby to watch on the monitors.
We’re making only enough seating available for everyone to maintain that 6-foot distance from people (other than family). Let’s be patient and honor an appropriately healthy distance between family groups in order to minimize the potential spread of any viruses. We’ll also be dismissing services by row to prevent congestion in the aisles.
Check-in at the doors
You will be asked to confirm that you have not:
Been showing flu-like symptoms in the past 14 days
Had a fever of 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days
Had exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19
Been out of the country in the past 14 days
Everyone is asked to wear a face mask in the lobby until seated in the auditorium, if medically able. The mask then becomes optional. When leaving the auditorium either at the conclusion or mid-service if going to the restroom, please have the mask on.
Please bring your own face mask, but if you forget, we have a limited amount available.
Michigan now has made an exception for indoor face masks in the case of restaurants. Patrons are to wear masks until seated at their tables. We believe a church service is a similar situation. However, when moving around, we wear the mask in case we get too close to someone, and to demonstrates concern for others.
Wash or sanitize your hands before you attend. For the time being, please refrain from physical contact with those outside your family unit (ie. hugging, handshakes, etc.). We want to be friendly, but for now, we’ll just wave, flash a peace sign, air hug, or maybe offer the Vulcan “live long and prosper” sign.
No trays or buckets will be passed. We encourage online giving but have also made offering boxes available on campus for dropping checks or cash. Communion will be individual pre-packaged containers you’ll pick up on the way in the auditorium.
No coffee (gasp!) or refreshments will be offered except for free bottled waters. Drinking fountains will not be available. You are welcome to bring your own food or drinks.
Upgraded protocols include extra hand sanitizers, sanitizing between services, and limiting the number who can be in the restrooms at a time.
We encourage leaving rooms between cars in the parking lot. This also demonstrates our care to those driving by.
