We know that you are as excited as we are to resume in person worship, even if it looks a little different these days. We also understand that our members’ expectations for cleaning and disinfection have changed due to COVID-19. That’s why Alfred Street is committed to delivering a cleaner, safer in person worship experience for our members with the implementation of our registration protocols, augmented by a new cleaning regiment that already builds on our rigorous cleaning standards, We hope this will provide complete peace of mind when you worship in person with your Alfred Street family.

We promise to deliver the same reliable and friendly worship experience you’ve come to expect from Alfred Street Baptist Church, with the added confidence of industry-leading hygiene practices to keep you safe. This includes temperature checks, hand sanitizer stations, masks requirements and social distancing when and where necessary.

IN-PERSON WORSHIP IS LIMITED TO 250 MEMBERS AT A TIME; VIRTUAL WORSHIP WILL CONTINUE AS CURRENTLY SCHEDULED.

We have developed a phased and robust reopening plan, however, these plans are subject to change as does the virus. We ask for your continued patience and prayers as we begin to implement this plan in hopes that, as it becomes safe to do so, it evolves and grows to accommodate more and more people and in-person worship services.

In-person worship IS available to ALFRED STREET members, 18 years and older only.

We love guests and realize that the kingdom of Christ is bigger than ASBC and look forward to welcoming them back to worship, however, for the foreseeable future, in-person worship service is available to MEMBERS ONLY. Please note, members CANNOT BRING GUESTS. No exceptions.

PRE-REGISTRATION:

We are no longer conducting pre-registration and verification of vaccination cards.  If you are confirmed to attend an in-person service, you will be asked to upload your card at that time. You do not have to have a vaccination card on file to receive an invitation to register.

If you have tried to upload your vaccination information before but have not received confirmation or are unsure if your information was received, feel free to contact us at welcomeback@alfredstreet.org to inquire about your status.

REGISTRATION:

The Sunday before your DG is eligible to attend service, you will be sent an email inviting you to register. This registration is conducted via Eventbrite and is sent to the email address associated with your REALM profile. Invitations are sent to every eligible member in the designated DGs, regardless of pre-registration

    • This invitation is your opportunity to let us know that you desire to join us in worship, however, registration DOES NOT a guarantee you a spot. 
    • Every member must register individually, even if you are planning to come as a family. This is necessary to help us with contact tracing as well as planning appropriately so as not to exceed capacity.
    • Within 48hrs of registration close, you will be alerted of your status via text message. You will either be approved to attend or placed on the waitlist
    • If you are placed on the waitlist, you will be given priority to register for 5th Sunday service as well as the next Sunday your discipleship group is eligible to attend

Registration Confirmation and Vaccination Verification:

After registration, if you are one of the 250 members selected to attend, you will receive a series of text messages from 42Chat, a secure document upload and verification service. The number these messages will come from is 855.649.0313.

In the text messages and subsequent links, you will see the following:

  • A reminder that all attendees must provide proof of vaccination before attending as well as other pertinent information
  • A link to upload your vaccination card.
    • Even if you have previously provided this information, it is important that you click this link to receive your GREEN CHECK for entry. 
    • If you have already provided proof of vaccination and your information has been verified, you will see a GREEN CHECK indicating that your information has been validated within our system. If you not, you will be asked to upload your card again. We apologize if this causes you any inconvenience.
  • Once your information has been verified, you will receive a message stating that you are approved to attend with a link to confirm your attendance. If you are no longer able to attend in-person service, this is how you should alert us of your status change.
  • Finally, you will receive a health screening/COVID questionnaire that must be completed before entry 

PLEASE NOTE: Displaying a GREEN CHECK is the only way to gain admittance unless you have been instructed to see someone at the Help Desk upon arrival.

We understand that this is all new and will take some getting used to – if you have any questions or concerns or problems please email us at welcomeback@alfredstreet.org or contact your deacon.

ATTENDANCE BY DISCIPLESHIP GROUP 

Realizing that the weekly desire to be back in worship will be higher than our initial capacity of 250 members and in an attempt to create an equal and fair opportunity for all members, the leadership of the church has prayerfully agreed to the schedule below. The Sunday you are eligible to attend in-person worship is determined by your discipleship group. If there is a fifth Sunday in a particular month, we will use that for members who have been wait-listed on their eligible Sunday. Your deacons will be in contact and send reminders of the weekends your group is eligible for worship.
