7:00 PM June 26th
"You probably have heard, we are opening our doors this Sunday June 28th for in person services. We will be following our normal service schedules on Sundays at 10:30am and Wednesdays at 7:00PM. For these first few weeks, we will be conducting in-person services in the Sanctuary only. Our live stream will continue for those who can not attend. There will be no Sunday School, no Pre Service Prayer and no Grow Kids Church or Children's classes for our Sunday and Wednesday services at this point. We will be building a phased schedule to start these things again over the next few weeks. Cultivate Youth Church will begin soon, watch on instagram for updates. This limited start will continue for now and as we feel comfortable we will begin to layer on these additional meetings and gatherings, (watch for announcements and details in the coming days and weeks).
In order that everyone understands what to expect when you return, we have prepared this quick video to familiarize you with what we will be asking everyone to do. We know that some of the things we are asking to be done may be a little bit different and difficult to get used to, we are committed to the safety and peace of mind of all our attendees. We want to do everything in our power to create safety that follows reasonable State guidance. It has been a long time since we have met together in person, our last in person service was Sunday March 15th. Praise God, the opportunity is now before us to gather together again, although it will feel different, it will be a blessing to worship in the same place and here with our ears and to see with our eyes others worshipping too.
Now here is some details to help you be prepared for Sunday morning worship service.
#1 - We will continue to live stream our services, do not feel obligated to come back to church if you are in a high risk category or you are just not comfortable at this time. We want to see your faces and don’t want you to stay away for too long but we understand if you don’t come back right away.
#2 - When you drive in to the parking lot please park in the front of the church, we will have limitations on entering the church and everyone needs to come through the designated doors in front when entering the facilities. Please maintain your social distancing while waiting to enter the facility.
#3 - Upon entering, the team will conduct a quick health screening, which will include asking some simple questions, performing a no-contact temperature check of everyone in your party, including your children and ensuring you have a mask with you at the time of entry. If any person in your group has symptoms consistent with Covid-19 or has an elevated temperature reading you will be asked to leave and watch our service via live stream. Please, please if you are having symptoms stay at home until you are clear of the symptoms or cleared by your medical provider, call us though and let us know, we want to pray with you for quick and speedy recovery.
#4 - We ask you to follow the directions of our ushers, they will help to seat you in our designated seating designed to aid with social distancing. We have a few areas reserved in the back of the church for families attending with smaller children, please sit where designated and remain in this location for the duration of the service.
#5 - We are asking you to sit with the group you traveled to the church with, attendees will be required to sit in families or in groups as they have arrived.
#6 - There will be no coffee bar or other refreshments available at the church, if you need water or other refreshments, please bring them with you.
#7 - We will have limitations on the number of people who can be in the bathrooms at any given time, the ushers will assist in managing these limitations, please wait in the designated spots for availability in the restroom and follow the ushers directions.
#8 - We are asking everyone to do your best to maintain social distancing, we want everyone to be social, say Hi and show the love of Christ, just from a distance, to the best of your ability.
#9 - At the conclusion of service, please feel free to fellowship, however we must limit the number of people in the foyer and in the sanctuary, maintain social distancing, go outside if you want to talk and do your best to keep groups smaller with the proper social distancing maintained.
#10 - Lastly and most importantly, enjoy being back together, even though different right now, it is all worth it, we are so excited to welcome you all back to Church."
For the safety of all team members, we sanitize all equipment and stations EVERY day that we live stream.
