We are excited to start gathering together inside our church building again. In order to do so, please review the policies below. If you have any questions, please email or call Pastor Erron.
Please maintain the standard social distancing of 6 feet.
In accordance with Vermont guidelines for churches, masks are recommended.
If you are feeling sick or have been around someone who is sick, please watch our morning service online. Services will continue on Zoom, Facebook Live, and YouTube.
Please use the hand sanitizer stations located in the lobby and gym.
We will receive an offering in our offering boxes. Thank You for your giving! As always you are able to support ACF with online gifts through our web site and the Tithe.ly app.
We ask households to sit together. We will have chairs set up in groups from 1 to 5. Please do not move chairs.
Please refrain from physical greetings of any kind.
We will not be serving coffee. You are welcome to bring your own.
In order to allow as much fresh air in as possible, we will be opening the doors throughout the building. For those who are prone to chills, you may want to bring a light jacket.
Before and after the service, all common touch points will be wiped down.
We will have an overflow room if needed. This will be the large classroom down our hallway on the right. While you will not be able to see the service, you will be able to hear. If you have young children and would prefer to sit here, please let us know when you arrive.
For those who would like to attend, but stay outdoors, we will have the FM station (89.9) available. In addition, the front law on Melrose Ave. will be an outside option where you will be able to hear and have a partial view of the service through the open door.
Lastly, we are working on a plan to reopen ACF Kids this summer. This will be an abbreviated (30 minutes) program that will take place during the message time. Our starting date is TBD.
We gather to worship and serve the Lord at 112 Lincoln Ave. This is the home of Rutland Area Christian School. We utilize the multipurpose room for worship. In addition we have permanent space for our ACF Kids ministry.
Between the lines!!!!
There is plenty of parking in the large parking lot off Lincoln Ave. In addition, you can park on Lincoln Ave or Melrose Ave.
ACF Kids Reopening Plan - Starting on July 19th.
There is no nursery program.
Kids will be dismissed following the worship time for about a 30 minute kids lesson time.
Upon arrival, families will check-in. This will streamline gathering the children when they are dismissed from the worship service. Name tags will be printed and placed on a piece of paper for the class teacher.
Multiple hand sanitizing - in and out from every activity.
Depending on the number of children, we will have one or two groups. If we have enough children to be separated into two main groups, one for older children (1st-6th) and one for younger children (3-K).
If we have one group, all children will be picked up at the playground following the worship service. If we have two groups, the younger children will be picked up in the playground, the older in the classroom.
If we have two groups, the older group will go directly to the playground. The younger group will watch a Bible video lesson through RightNow Media. After about 15 minutes, the groups will switch activities.
We will utilize two separate rooms (the current ACF Kids and Youth / Adult classrooms) on rainy days.
To ensure social distancing, each family will get a (6x6) square on the floor.
A craft activity will either be during the “extra time” or will be sent home with the kids.
In accordance to current VT Regulations, childcare volunteers are required to wear a mask.
Our worship services last approximately 60 minutes. We hope that our worship service is just that - music and message - that worships Christ. A community of people gathering to proclaim to Christ and one another, "He Alone is Lord!"
Stick around after the service and be sure to say hello to Pastor Erron. He'd love to meet you and answer any questions you have about ACF.
