Is the church open to the public?
Yes, with safety and social distancing strategies in place. We welcome you to our Sunday morning services that begin at 10:30am. Learn more about our safety policies during Covid-19 below.
Are masks mandatory?
Masks are OPTIONAL for all individuals. For those who want to continue to distance and wear masks, we encourage respecting people's space and comfort levels. Please be sensitive to others and their comfort levels.
Is there a self-screening policy?
We ask that anybody who has any cold or flu symptoms to remain home, and that all individuals keep track with updated public health guidelines for best health practices.
Do we have to register online or anywhere else before attending?
No, you do not. You're welcome to just come.
Are there children's ministry classes, and infant and toddler church?
Our ROC Kids (1st-5th grade) will be meeting this Sunday, May 30th during the church service. Our ROC3K (3yrs-5yrs) and our ROC Kids will both begin meeting every Sunday during service starting Sunday, June 5th.
How about Youth Ministry?
Our Family Ministry Pastor has been doing many youth events remotely over Zoom and in-person outdoors when weather permits. Please contact us directly for more information if you'd like information about getting your teen plugged into ROC.
Are small groups meeting?
Normally we have multiple small groups at once, but for right now, we have one small group class for adults that meets Sundays before service beginning at 9:30 in our church library, a ladies Bible Study beginning in June, and our young adult's group meets monthly. The class follows all the same safety measures described throughout this FAQ.
Is the church contact tracing?
In the event that somebody were to have been exposed at ROC, which has thankfully not happened, we would immediately contact trace and notify anybody who was hypothetically exposed. We would also have sanitation measures for any exposed physical areas and would convert to a temporary streaming-only platform for our services if necessary.
What if I am not comfortable?
We totally understand! We encourage anybody who is not comfortable attending in-person to join us online at either our Royal Oak Church pages on either Facebook or YouTube. Every week at 10:30 we livestream our services over both of those platforms. Many of our members and attenders have been utilizing this option instead of coming in-person. Whether you join us in person or online, we are happy to have you be a part and welcome you to ROC!
