As we’ve evaluated the latest guidance available, our Together Again Taskforce has considered thoughtful adjustments to our precautions, including:
We will also continue many precautions that have been in place, including:
Other Updated Items:
Food and Drink
We plan to keep all current protocols with single-use and individually wrapped items. No self-serve buffets or shared serving utensils. We do not plan to offer campus-wide coffee weekly.
Groups have self-selected to return on campus when ready and are functioning smoothly.
Anyone who desires to participate in choir has been able to. No current limit on number of participants. Current spacing of members is 4-5 feet. We remain committed to a choir experience at the 8:30 service. Choir location and wardrobe are always flexible.
Anyone who desires to participate in orchestra has been able to. Teams are being used in creative ways. Orchestra location is flexible.
We will continue to limit printed materials and will drive individuals to our website and app. We do not plan to regularly produce a weekly bulletin.
We will restock seat backs with bibles, and with pens/note cards when needed.
Kids & Students Wellness Policy
We ask that if your children are sick that you not check them into First Orlando/Horizon West Kids & Students. This is for the health and safety of the other children in the ministry and our volunteers. If your child has shown any of the following symptoms in the previous 24 hours, please do not check them in:
We’re so grateful to be able to meet both on-campus and online! You can join us at our John Young Campus at 8:30 am, 10:00 am and 11:30 am. We’ve redesigned our weekend experience to maintain a sanitary, touchless environment, and masks and hand sanitizer are available by request.
We want you to know our teams have thought through every detail to ensure a safe and clean environment for every member of your family. In First Orlando Kids, we’ve implemented a weekly reservation system to allow us to effectively prepare rooms, volunteers, and safety protocols. For our MVMT Students, all seating and common areas will be set up to allow for social distancing. Click below to find out more about Kids and Students gatherings on campus.
If you just aren’t quite ready to come in person yet, we want to encourage you to join us for First Orlando Online! You’re part of the First Orlando family no matter where you choose to attend.
You’re part of the First Orlando family no matter where you choose to attend! We encourage you to continue to attend First Orlando Online if you or a family member doesn’t feel well, if attending with your kids is difficult, or if you’re just not ready to attend church at a physical location. Every person needs to decide what is best for them.
We will broadcast at 8:30 am (traditional style music) and 10:00 and 11:30 am (music led by a band) at FirstOrlando.com and across our social media platforms.
We know that serving helps us grow in our faith while giving us a sense of belonging. As people serve, whether in the church, in Central Florida, or around the world, the impact has the power to change lives, now more than ever! Click below to join our team.Join the Together Again Team
