Outdoor Gathering Guidelines

Outdoor Gathering Guidelines

by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on October 08, 2020

To conduct our ministry and safely serve our members GSLC will allow small gatherings to use the church’s outdoor areas. Leaders should plan gathering to avoid need for building access or use of church chairs or other interior equipment.  Requests for groups to meet outdoors must be made to and approved by the church staff. Each group shall designate a leader responsible for preparation, conduct and follow-up.

Scheduling

The church staff will inform and coordinate with other individuals or groups that may be planning to use the building at the same time.

  • Make certain the attendees understand that no restroom facilities will be available
  • Arrange for attendees to provide their own chairs as needed
  • Arrange for hand sanitizer to be available
