COVID-19 INFO

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.  Please stay home and watch online if you are not feeling well.

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 no longer required for those who are  fully vaccinated. 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 sanitization 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. At this time, TPC Kids is offered one Sunday a month only, for children ages 3 through 5th grade. Please check our calendar under the ABOUT tab for those dates. 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 (again, see our calendar under the ABOUT tab for those dates). All other classes and kids' programs in the building are suspended, including Infants and Toddler classes. Some teachers/leaders do remain in touch with their students via Zoom. On those Sundays when there is no TPC Kids offered, parents are asked to keep their children with them in the auditorium, or to reserve one of our Family Rooms.

  • Family Rooms. There are three Family Rooms available on a reservation basis, where parents of young children can hang out with their kids during the service (and can invite another family they regularly socialize with to join them). The service will be streamlined into each classroom so parents won't miss a thing! Parents must supervise their children at all times, provide their own toys and activities, and are asked to sanitize any surfaces their children touch while in the classroom.

  • 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.
