If you choose to attend an in-person worship service, we are committed to complying with health and safety guidelines to make every effort to protect our gatherings.

 

During worship gatherings, our building will be limited to the current CDC occupancy guidelines. We also plan to have defined arrival and dismissal patterns, ongoing sanitization in all areas, and an adjusted seating plan to accommodate additional spacing. 

 

Please be seated per row by household and allow for social-distancing practices with other groups or individuals.

 

***Masks are required based on the guidelines of MN Mandate 20-81 effective July 25th. 

 

Morris Free is committed to the health of our community and will scale our gatherings and building usage in compliance with the Minnesota Department of Health and CDC guidance to support efforts in bringing this pandemic to an end

 

REOPENING FAQS

Will Morris Free Church Online still be available?

 

We encourage you to continue to attend online if you or a family member doesn’t feel well, or if you’re just not ready to attend church at our physical location. You’re part of the Morris Free Church family no matter where you choose to attend! Find upcoming and past Sunday services on YouTube here.

LET'S WORK TOGETHER TO STAY HEALTHY

 

What We’re Doing:

 

  • Additional hand-sanitizing products will be placed throughout the building.
  • All Morris Free services will be as touchless as possible and all high-volume areas will be thoroughly sanitized between services.
  • The Nursery and Discovery rooms will be unavailable, however we will have space available for nursing mothers just off the Lobby in a private room.
  • No water fountains will be open or usable.
  • No food or beverages (coffee & donuts) will be offered.
  • No offering baskets will be passed. Instead, there will be an area in the Lobby for those who want to give in person. We recommend online giving in this time – morrisfreechurch.com/online-giving
  • To reduce touchpoints, registry books, pens, children’s bags and other shared book items will not be available in seating areas. Connect with us digitally at morrisfreechurch.com/forms/connect and remember to bring your own Bible or App device!
