On-Campus Worship Guidelines

Masks: On Thursday, July 2, Governor Abbott issued a mandate requiring Texans to wear face coverings at all times. Churches are exempt from this order, however, we are strongly encouraged to wear masks. While you are on our campuses we urge you to wear a mask if possible. We are providing masks for those who do not have them.

  • We strongly encourage everyone to wear masks. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.
  • We will continue to offer online worship at 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m. each Sunday.
  • We ask that families stay at least six feet from others.
  • In our worship venues in Marshall and The Crossing, we are skipping every other row of seating.
  • In the Longview Worship Center, we are monitoring attendance to make sure we are below 50% capacity. We have some sections with every-other-row seating, and some sections with more open seating. We ask that families continue to maintain a safe distance as they choose in a seat in these open sections.
  • Please use the provided stations to sanitize your hands as you enter.
  • Upon exiting the venue, please proceed outside to visit and fellowship with one another.  Please do not congregate in the foyer area.
  • Each venue will be cleaned and sanitized between each Worship Gathering.
  • Instead of passing offering plates, tithes and offerings will be collected as you exit.
  • Coffee service will be closed.
  • Our response time will be adjusted to help accommodate social distancing guidelines.

On- Campus Connect Groups

Some Connect Groups will continue to meet remotely or on other days, Please check with your Connect Group leader for specific information about your class. If you would like details about joining a Connect Group, either in-person or online, please email [email protected].

 

To gather as safely as possible, we have set the following guidelines:
  • In order to maintain social distancing and reduce congestion in our hallways and gathering areas, please do not arrive more than 15 minutes early.
  • To accommodate cleaning rooms between Connect Groups, each class will be limited to one hour. Please do not enter a classroom before the room is sanitized.
  • Seating in each classroom will be arranged for social distancing. Please do not move chairs or tables in your room.
  • We strongly recommend that every person, if able, wear a mask or face covering, both in the classroom and while transitioning from your room to other areas on campus.
  • Preschool and children’s classes will require an RSVP. Visit mobberly.org/rsvp to reserve a spot for your child. Reserve a spot by Thursday evening before the upcoming Sunday. (e.g.- Reserve a spot by Thursday Aug. 6 for Sunday, Aug. 9)
  • Anyone volunteering or attending preschool or children’s classes will go through a health screening.
