  • Babies - 2 years old: If you would rather not sit in the auditorium, parents can come with their child to the nursery, Room 127. There will be a TV broadcasting the sermon live, so you will not miss out. Total occupancy per service: 10 (includes adults & children). First come, first served.

FAQ for Phase 1 Re-Gathering Process for Kissimmee Christian Church

How do I ensure my spot at one of the services?
We are no longer requiring members to register for services.  However, we are requiring you to register your Elementary or Preschool student as limited space is available.

Do I have to wear a mask?
We have made the 8:15AM a mask mandatory service. Since we are encouraging all of our seniors and immune compromised members to attend this service, we felt it necessary to ask all of those attending this service to wear a mask, if not for you, for all of the others attending this service. We want to be good stewards to those who are fearful but still want to worship and that is what this service in intended for, so in order to ensure a sense of peace we are asking that if you are signed up to attend the 8:15AM service you wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, we will have one available for you. This is only mandatory for the 8:15AM service but we strongly recommend this for everyone attending a service in general.

Will the service still be live-streamed?
Yes, it is our intention to continue offering a livestream service for those who do not feel comfortable coming into the church building. The livestream will be done at 9:30AM via YouTube, Facebook and our website.

Where do I enter the building?
There will be two places to enter KCC, the main entrance doors to the far right and Brack Street.  The Children’s Ministry doors will be locked. There will be greeters there to open the doors for you.

How will I be greeted?
All of our greeters who interact with guests will be wearing gloves and masks to ensure the safety of those around them. We encourage you to let our greeters open the doors for you. There will be entrances both at the main doors and on Brack street.  Entrances will be clearly marked for your convenience.

How will I know where I can sit in the auditorium?
Signs will be placed in each pew marking off safe distances for members to sit.  Every other pew will be marked off for each service, so the pew that was inhabited in the first service will not be for the second.  Families are encouraged to sit together and do not have to sit 6 feet apart.

Will there be Sunday School Classes?
Sunday School classes are available for adults.  We also have limited space available for our Elementary and Preschool students.

How do I let you know I attended the service?
There are two ways we would like for you to let us know if you attended.
If you watched the service via livestream on a device and weren’t here in person, please “check-in” to Kissimmee Christian’s Facebook page.
If you attended either online or in person you can fill out a “Check-In Card” via our website.  More on this in the coming weeks.

What will communion look like?
As the communion song is being sung members will be dismissed by row to get their communion. We will have ushers there to make sure there is enough communion for everyone.  We will be double cupping our communion so the bread is on the bottom and juice will be on top.  Every other slot will be filled with communion to ensure people are not touching cups that are not theirs.  For those who are unable to walk down to get their communion, an usher will be available to bring you communion.

What will offering look like?
You will be able to bring your offering down with you as you come to take your communion and there will be a plate set up to receive your offering.
We are also having several offering/information card kiosks put into place around the auditorium for you to be able to place your offering.

Will the other language groups be meeting?
Yes, all language groups are still planning to meet with the same guidelines as the English service.

Will there be coffee and refreshments in the café?
No, we are suspending coffee and refreshments in the café until further notice.

Will there be places to sanitize?
Free-standing sanitizing machines have been purchased and placed throughout the foyer along with masks available for those who may have forgotten theirs.

Can I have physical contact with others?
There will be no official handshaking or physical contact encouraged.

Will we get a bulletin?
No, we are suspending bulletins at this time.

Will the kitchen be available?
No, the main kitchen will be closed until further notice.

Will the Outreach Service continue?
Yes, but in a modified version.  At the present time they will continue to serve meals in Styrofoam containers and people will enter and exit back doors and eat outside only.

Will the bus still operate?
Yes.

Will the golf cart still run?
Yes, we will still run the golf cart for those who have mobility issues and need transportation.

What about all of the other ministries of the church?
Our specialized ministries will continue to meet remotely at this time.

What does Phase 1 mean?
Phase 1 is what the Elders and Staff have come together in agreement upon for regathering at this time.  We will continue to update the congregation concerning the future of our services, ministries and events, and will be re-evaluating each week as to what our next steps are and when to implement them.  We are doing our very best to make sure that our members remain safe, but at the same time allow for a time of meaningful worship together.
