For now, we will allow 60 people (plus staff & volunteers) in the building for Sunday morning worship services. Once these reservations spots are spoken for, we can not allow any more people to attend the service. We will add to this capacity as time allows! The sanctuary is set up in "pods" of 1-5 chairs. The people sitting in your pod must be within your household. Masks and social distancing will be required at all times. (Email Rachel if your pod requires more than 5 seats so we can accommodate your needs!)
To attend the services, you must commit to follow the protocols listed on the MTVPC Covenant of Care shown below. This document, along with the COVID-19 self screening questionnaire are also available to read through on the welcome tab of this site.
Here's another view of the Mountain View Covenant of Care:
The community of Mountain View Presbyterian Church invites all who enter this building or return to meet in person to join in a covenant of care for one another in order to demonstrate our love for our neighbors and care especially for those who are most vulnerable to COVID‐19.
These are the core practices we affirm to reduce known risks of COVID‐19 virus transmission as we re‐enter our building and engage in‐person activities. We ask for your commitment to join in this effort.
Upon entering the building, I commit to help reduce disease transmission by:
*Social distancing from members outside of my immediate household by 6 feet.
*Staying at home if I am sick (or have been with someone who has symptoms of sickness).
*Wearing a mask at all times in accordance with local and state guidelines (when gathering with our community in the church building).
*Waiting outside the restroom so there are not more than two people inside at one time.
Doing Things Differently
*Reserving my Family Pod prior to Sunday.
*Having my forehead temperature taken (as well as those in my family group) and passing the screening questions every time I enter the church building.
*Greeting others without touching them.
*Agreeing not to bring food/drink.
*Keeping people in my group in their designated area.
*Washing and sanitizing hands after entering the church building.
*Using provided disinfectant after touching surfaces in bathrooms.
*Singing is allowed with mask over mouth and nose and 6 feet away from non-household members.
