Covid-19 Update

Guidelines for Reopening Services at WBT**

   It is our desire and biblical mandate to provide careful and safe conditions for the body of Christ during all services, and/or activities at WBT. The Covid-19 pandemic has heightened our awareness and will mandate a “change of how we do business” as we seek to reopen the church for worship. 


** Updated Guidelines--starting December 1st.

  • Prayer meeting is suspended for the month due to a rise in cases in Jefferson County.

Guidelines--starting September 9th.

  • Restart Wednesday Evening Prayer Meeting, 7:00 PM.

Guidelines--starting July 5th


  • Restart van route

  • Restart Junior Church (during 11:00 AM service time)

  • Continue with Phase 1 guidelines, adding disinfecting of van and Junior church area

  • Social distancing will also be in effect in the new areas

Phase 1 Worship Guidelines (for the month of June--return to worship)

  • 11:00 AM worship service only.  Service will be shorter than normal due to changes.

  • Accessible areas for worshippers will be limited to the Main Foyer, the Auditorium, the large main  hallway, and the hallway restrooms. 

  • All accessible areas will be cleansed/disinfected before & after each service. 

  • There will be no van pickup.

  • Only one entrance to be used—the front double doors on the main auditorium side.

  • Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will be available in the main foyer for those who choose to use       


  • Any interaction in the foyer or auditorium must heed the 6’ spacing guidelines. Worshippers should not 

       linger in these areas, but may stop briefly to talk.

  • Auditorium doors will remain propped open at all times to lessen touching of surfaces.

  • There will be no paper bulletin—all announcements and the weekly service order will be on the 

       overhead screen.

  • Auditorium seating will be every other pew, with only immediate family groups sitting together.

  • There will be no plate offering. An offering basket will be provided at the entrance of the auditorium.

  • Hymn sheets will be provided in plastic sleeves in the pews so that they may be disinfected afterwards.
