RELAUNCH 

FAQ's

What happens when I arrive?


When you arrive, if you’ve saved your seat online, you will join the line that says “I Have a Seat” and the relaunch team will check your temperature and ask a few questions while the ushers prepare to assist you to our seat. If you have not saved your seat ahead of time, you will join the line that says “I Need a Seat.” Seating is limited in this line. Once in this line, our relaunch team will check your temperature and ushers will assist you to your seat (if available). Our team will direct each of your steps seamlessly. At all times we will assist you in maintaining a 6-foot safe distance as you move through and sit in the environment.




Will BayNorth be limiting the seating capacity?


Yes, we are limiting our capacity to ensure social distancing in our auditorium and overflow areas. As the local, state, and federal guidelines evolve we will update our seating limitations accordingly and keep you updated.




How will BayNorth practice social distancing in its location?


We will be seating every other row where seats are fixed and spacing seats accordingly to keep a safe distance between families within the auditorium. We ask that every individual practices social distancing while in the lobby or common areas.

What will children’s services look like?

What happens when service is over?


We ask that you sit tight until your section is dismissed by the ushers. We are asking that you not stop in the lobby to congregate as we will be starting a cleaning protocol for the next service. If you wish to visit with someone, please do so outside the building.




I’m not comfortable returning to church yet. Can I continue to be a part of the online experience?
