Health & Safety Protocols

In light of the City of New Orleans modification to the indoor mask mandate, SCAPC no longer requires masks indoors. As a covenant community, we trust our fellow church members to care for one another by adhering to existing protocols and by respecting those who, for a number of reasons, continue to mask and maintain their distance from others.

Your Questions Answered

Is distanced seating available for Sunday services?

Yes. The Phifer Library, where the 10:30 service audio is projected, is open for anyone who prefers a more distanced seat. The service is also live-streamed to Frampton Fellowship Hall where our family-friendly “Pray Ground” space provides further seating.

How is communion served?

Communion bread is individually pieced and served by gloved elders. Drink continues to be served in individual glasses.

How about service music?

The full Chancel Choir has returned for our 10:30 a.m. Sunday worship services!

Is childcare available?

Following the children's message at the 10:30 service, children 1st grade and younger are dismissed for a time of play, while older children remain with their families. While children of all ages are welcome to worship in the Sanctuary, our “Pray Ground” in Frampton Fellowship Hall provides families with young children a place to experience worship together. Services are live-streamed to the large screen and coloring sheets, puzzles, and books are available for children to enjoy. Parents must remain with their children while they are in the Pray Ground. The nursery is open from 8:15-11:45 a.m. for ages 0-3.

Are there special protocols for childcare and Sunday school?

All sitters in the nursery and volunteer Sunday school teachers are fully vaccinated. Sunday school classes of all ages require participants to sign in each Sunday. Any class participant testing positive for COVID-19 in the week following class must report to Michele Murphy so that the class may be notified and contact tracing may be done.

In children's Sunday school classes, children are in small sized classes according to grade/age and spread out in their classrooms. Upon entering their classrooms, children are offered hand sanitizer. All surfaces, toys, and other supplies are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after class.

Are services posted online?

Yes. Each Sunday's 10:30 service is livestreamed via our YouTube channel and can be viewed at any time. You can find the link on our worship resources page, www.scapc.org/worship. Click here to view.
