Congregational Worship Re-Entry Survey
The following survey is to help us determine your comfort level with returning to sanctuary Worship once North Carolina coronavirus metrics significantly improve. Please understand our intent is to return to Worship in a way that ensures everyone’s safety. We will continue to act out of an abundance of caution and will likely be even more restrictive than North Carolina guidelines.

We very much appreciate your patience, understanding and prayers. We look forward to sharing Worship in our sanctuary together as soon as practical, but we will be cautious out of our love for everyone.

We thank you in advance for taking your time to complete this survey. Please know that it is anonymous (unless you provide your name in question 19).

When we do return to sanctuary Worship, you should expect the experience to be different. Some of the changes you will likely see include the following:

• “Directed” seating and other measures to facilitate social distancing.
• Temperature checks and/or self-certifications (you acknowledge you are not sick) regarding health questions prior to building entry.
• Use of a registry at the door upon entry.
• Instructions that masks shall be worn when entering the building
• Sanitation procedures will be visible, and stations and products will be prominent.
• Expect no live singing, either from the choirs or within the congregation. Music will likely be instrumental if live, with only pre-recorded music used for vocals.
• Changes to procedures for Communion and the Offering.

This survey includes questions with regard to your current feelings about returning to worship and a couple of other questions.
1. Have you participated in online worship at the Kirk during Covid-19 restriction?
