WHO CAN ATTEND
Who can attend in-person worship services?
Anybody who is not showing known symptoms of COVID-19 is welcome to attend. We encourage people who might be more vulnerable to the virus to make prayerful and wise decisions about what is best for their personal health. That applies to those 65 and older and those with underlying health issues. The State of Ohio provides these health protocols for church attendees to consider.
Are senior adults welcome?
We want these members of the Vineyard Cincinnati family to be safe, and the CDC's recommendations and those extended by the State of Ohio are for people age 65 and older to stay home as much as possible. Because of our love for our senior adults, we suggest those age 65 and older to wait to return to in-person worship on our campus. That said, Vineyard Cincinnati will not stop anybody from attending if they do not show symptoms of illness.

Are children welcome?
Yes! Vineyard Kids & Students is offering in-person classes for infants to 5th grade on Sundays only at 9:30am & 11:30am only. *Please Note: Classes are not currently offered at the Saturday evening service.
How will seating be managed in the worship services?
Since seating capacity is reduced based on local or state guidelines, we're doing our best to ensure that proper distancing is maintained in the Auditorium.
CLEANING, FACE COVERINGS & PROTECTION
Are masks required?
Because of Hamilton County's Public Health Emergency Alert, face coverings are required while indoors per the state of Ohio's mandate.
Children in kindergarten and older are required to wear a mask while indoors. Disposable masks will be available if you forget to bring one. All staff and volunteers will also be wearing a mask while in the building.
Will there be hand sanitizer available?
Yes, hand sanitizer will be available, and you are encouraged to use it. You may also provide your own.
Are the facilities cleaned between services?
Yes. Our facilities team has a process in place for cleaning the auditorium regularly.
What is the worship service schedule?
Sunday 9:30am & 11:30am
Will the services be online?
Online services continue to be a great option. They are streamed on our website and Youtube during all service times and Facebook on Sunday mornings.
When does Vineyard’s Hispanic Community meet?
The Hispanic Ministry services will continue to be translated live on Facebook and via the Interactio app if you attend in person.
Life Groups, including Women’s Community Groups are currently meeting virtually and in-person, following social distancing guidelines and other necessary precautions.

CREATIVE IDEAS IF YOU'RE NOT READY
Have a watch party at your house! Invite 6 - 10 friends & family members to watch the weekend service with on Youtube. Have some food, start a backyard fire or gather in the living room, and talk about the message for a few minutes. It’s good to be together in whatever way you’re comfortable starting.
