Update on Reopening and In-Person Family Worship Experience
In the last several weeks, we have monitored guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe way. After a significant amount of prayer and preparation, we are resuming our in-person Sunday worship experiences on June 7, 2020. For the time being, our Sunday services will be a "family worship experience" with children joining parents in the main service.
We're committed to creating an environment that meets government recommendations for safety. To make that possible, our weekend service has been temporarily redesigned to create a sanitary, touch-less environment that allows for physical distancing.
We are continuing to monitor the situation within our community to determine any necessary changes. We encourage you to make the best choice for your family and situation as you consider attending a physical location or continuing to worship online. Whatever your choice may be at this time, please know that we understand and support you and your family.
In an effort to provide the safest environment possible, we are asking that you "reserve" your seats so that we can ensure the proper spacing and social distancing is observed during our reopening phase. Please click the link below to reserve your seats and those of any family members attending with you. (The link directs to a third party reservation site that is 100% safe and only asks for your email to send you an email reminder of your reservation.)
No LifeKids at This Time
During this phase of reopening, LifeKids will not be available. (LifeKids classes include the following: Sprouts - nursery, The Treehouse - preK & Kindergarten, and Quest - 1st-5th grade.)
We know we will meet again soon! Until then, your entire family is welcome to attend church with you in the main auditorium, and we encourage you to continue teaching your kids about Jesus using LifeKids Online which will continue for the time being.
- Bring a tablet or cell phone and a pair of headphones and during service your child can watch our LifeKids Online experiences or you can visit our special web page with more online resources for them to enjoy during service.
- Activity packets will be available. Please feel free to bring crayons, colored pencils, your child's favorite book, or any "quiet toys" they might enjoy.
Lifeline Youth Coming Soon
Lifeline Youth is in the process of formulating their "socially distanced come back plan". In the meantime, teenagers 6th - 12th grade can stay tuned to Lifeline on Instagram and Facebook for content that speaks directly to what they are experiencing.
Let’s Work Together to Stay Healthy
What We’re Doing:
- We have rearranged our auditorium seating to follow social distancing guidelines.
- Hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.
- Our in-person service will be a touch-less experience, and all high-volume areas will be thoroughly sanitized.
- LifeKids will not be available at this time at this time.
- Our water fountains will be not open or usable at this time.
- Bathrooms will be limited to a 50% capacity at any given time; there will be additional on-site signage explaining this.
- No hospitality food or beverages will be offered at this time.
- No offering buckets will be passed. We encourage you to give online or via text. If you would like to give in person there will be an area on the sides of the auditorium for guests who want to give during the live service.
- All seat back materials, papers, and pens will be removed.
How You Can Help:
- If you're considering joining us in person, please ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I showing any flu-like symptoms?
- Have I had a fever of 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days?
- Have I had prolonged exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?
- Is there any medical reason why I believe I shouldn’t be around others?
- If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you don't feel well or have health concerns, please stay home and join us for church online or connect via Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and Vimeo.
- Please wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often if you're joining us in person.
- Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other guests at church.
- Masks and/or gloves are not mandatory, but please feel free to wear masks/gloves if it makes you feel more comfortable.
- For those joining us in person, upon arrival into the auditorium our Host Team will seat "family units" together with the proper social distancing. (We are classifying a "family unit" as any group of people who essentially have been in close contact with one another and either rode in the same car, live in the same house, or are together on a regular basis.)
