KEEPING ALL OF US SAFE

BUILDING

  • Cleaner Air. Ionizing air purifiers have been installed on all of our furnaces throughout the building, which are circulating and cleaning the air 24/7. These purifiers use positive and negative ions to charge the air as it passes through, killing mold, bacteria and viruses, as well as reducing allergens, odors and other airborne particles.

  • Social Distancing. While in our building, everyone is encouraged to maintain a reasonable distance between households, whether seated in the auditorium or getting to and from their seats.

  • Sanitation. Our building is cleaned professionally each week, and all high-touch surfaces are also sanitized weekly. We provide sterilizing wipes for levers and handles, etc. in each restroom and in the lobby, as well as instructions on safe sterilizing practices. 

  • Health Screening.  We are no longer taking temperatures at the door. Please stay home and watch online if you are not feeling well. You can find a link to our streaming service under the WATCH tab, as well as links to some of our previous message series.

SERVICES

  • Preregistration. We encourage everyone to preregister to attend our Sunday morning service, although it is no longer required.

  • Face Coverings. Masks and/or face shields are once again required for everyone in the building over the age of 5 per State mandate, regardless of vaccination status. A paper mask can be provided upon request. We also stream our services online each week via our website, YouTube and Facebook for those who cannot attend in person.

  • Hygiene. We have several hand sanitizing stations throughout the building, and encourage everyone to "gel in and gel out." We have also replaced all bathroom towel dispensers with pull-down models that do not require touch.

  • Paper Handouts. For the time being, we are not using paper handouts and programs. We are encouraging people to go to the CONTACT tab on our website for information and to contact us if they have any questions, as well as to submit prayer requests and register to attend our services.

  • Communion Services. At TPC, we observe communion (the Lord's Supper) every other Sunday. At this time, each guest grabs an individually-sealed juice and wafer packet before entering the auditorium, instead of filing past our communion tables during the service.

  • Tithes and Offerings.  We encourage giving through a variety of electronic channels, and there are also stationary collection baskets in the auditorium. At this time, offering baskets are not being passed.

  • Food & Beverages. We have temporarily suspended our Sunday morning Coffee & Goody time. 

PROGRAMS

  • Kids and Youth. TPC Kids is open every Sunday for children ages birth through 5th grade. Our Youth (grades 6-12) enjoy the music in the auditorium at the beginning of the service, and then head downstairs after the third song, and they also meet every other Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00 (see our calendar under the ABOUT tab for those dates).

  • LifeGroups. All LifeGroups are allowed to meet at the discretion of their leaders and members, some via Zoom, and some in the building following all TPC face covering and sanitation guidelines.
