Like you, we’re excited to worship in person! Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. Now that we are back meeting in-person, things are a bit different, and we want everyone to feel safe, supported and have a positive experience. For those who can’t return immediately, or in the foreseeable future, we’re committed to providing an excellent online experience.

While the pandemic has brought many challenges, we are thankful for how God has used this difficult time to broaden our reach far beyond our community. We will regularly update this page as we have new or updated information. 

If you have any other specific questions, please contact us.

FAQ

When will in-person services resume?

In-person services are happening! For the safety of our kids, RSVP for DCC Kids using the links above.

What's going to be different as we reenter our buildings?

  • Masks will be required
  • Six-foot physical distancing guidelines will be followed – because of that, only one-third of each venue can be utilized
  • Separate entrances and exits
  • No hugs and handshakes :)
  • No refreshments served (if you need to bring a beverage – water, coffee, etc. – thanks for putting your mask back on as soon as possible)
  • RSVP for Kids programming (and RSVP for weekly lesson activity bags at Northside Madison). DCC Kids in-person programming is happening at Sprecher Road and DeForest Campus. There will be no DCC Kids at Northside Madison at this time. Weekly lesson activity bags are available for Pre-K and Elementary students.
  • A family-friendly venue located in the Activity Center (where families will sit around tables and children will be provided with activity bags)
  • Bulletins all digital
  • No physical Bibles, but bring your own
  • No passing the offering plate

What are the safety measures you are taking?

While we are taking every possible measure we can to assure your safety, please understand we can’t guarantee it. See below for the precautionary steps we are taking:

  • Taking temperatures of all staff and volunteers
  • Electrostatic cleaning and disinfecting procedures
  • Designated entrances and exits
  • Frequent sanitizing of high touch points and restrooms
  • Hand sanitizer located throughout the building
  • Foot openers installed on restroom doors
  • Drinking fountains turned off – no beverages
  • Requiring wearing of masks
  • Following CDC guidelines

What will my experience be when I return to the building?

DCC is known as a warm, welcoming, friendly place. This is a value we will strive to maintain, even with additional restrictions in the layout and usability of our spaces. Even though masks are required and physical distancing maintained, we will find ways to extend a warm greeting. We will still offer worship that lifts the heart and teaching that connects our lives with the greater story God is unfolding in and through our lives. All this to continue to connect hearts to Christ in our services so that we can see even more people become devoted followers of Christ.

What are we doing to ensure the safety of our kids?

The health and safety of our children and families have always been, and remains, a top priority. In January, we will begin with a Family Friendly venue located in the Activity Center. Families will be able to sit around tables and children will be provided with fun activity bags.

DCC Kids in-person programming is happening at Sprecher Road and DeForest Campus. Room capacity is limited. There will be no DCC Kids at Northside Madison at this time.  

Will I be required to wear a mask?

Currently, per state mandate, anyone five years of age or older must wear a cloth face-covering in any public building. If you are unable for medical reasons to wear a mask, for the safety of others, we want to encourage you, at this time, to continue watching online. We’ll keep updating this section as new guidelines are issued.

How will we maintain physical distancing during worship services?

Each of our venues will be set up to provide physical distancing by removing rows and keeping empty seats between groups/or individuals.

When is it safe for me to return?

The simple answer is when you are ready. We fully support you, understanding everyone’s situation is different. As we update you with the reopening of our physical buildings, we ask that you make the right decision for you and your family. If you are in a high-risk category, or have a preexisting condition, or live with someone who does, we strongly encourage you to continue joining us online. We will continue to offer our excellent services online.

What other online resources will be provided?

It is our intention to continue to provide all the resources that are currently online. If you have a question about a specific resource or cannot find what you need please let us know. Currently, links to online resources can be found here. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us.

Will there be any virtual/zoom small groups?

Yes. Virtual/zoom small groups have allowed more people to connect as we continue to reach more people. In addition, virtual/zoom small groups will continue to be a way to engage in ministry for those who are not able, or not ready to come back. Small groups that are comfortable may choose to gather in person in homes.

What if there's a surge of infection, what then?

We are prepared for various versions of possible surges that may happen. DCC has a great relationship with local authorities, including the health department, so we will act on their suggested guidelines.

Are we still handling funerals and weddings?

We are prepared to host small funerals and weddings under the current guidelines. Please follow up with staff.
