Reopening Updates

We offer both a digital and an in-person Sunday worship experience from 10:30–11:30am. Those who wish to enjoy the service online can access the live-stream on the church Facebook page (see information below). Those who wish to attend must take note of the following COVID-19-related protocols:

a) Our doors open at 10:15am. Outside of the worship/media team, no one will be allowed in prior to this time.

b) We are asking that everyone enter solely through the front door of the assembly, wherein you will be greeted by an usher. Said usher will direct you—based upon logistical concerns and/or social distancing regulations—to one of two areas: i.e., the Main Sanctuary or the Community Room (wherein you can participate via the two TV’s). Please treat the ushering team with respect and follow their guidance.

c) Families of the same physical household may sit together with no concern for social distancing. Differing households must remain six feet apart at all times. Unless you live with the person, please stay apart throughout Phase One. Please take your seat prior to 10:30am, as the live-stream starts promptly!

d) You must wear a mask (unless you have a medical need. For children between ages 2 and 5, the wearing of a face-covering/mask is at the discretion of the child’s parent or guardian. Children under 2 should not wear a face mask or covering.

e) Hand sanitizer will be readily available to you and your family. There are also several sinks wherein you can wash as needed.

f) Due to the impossibility of necessary social distancing—and the potential need for seating—there will be no Children’s Church or Infant/Toddler Nursery in Phase One. In fact, the Nursery will be inaccessible and cannot be used at this juncture. Parents with infants or small children may wish to avail themselves of the live-stream (which will continue as in recent weeks). If your child is not able to sit through the entirety of the service in a controlled manner, we ask that you consider worshiping with us from home until later phases.

g) We are not permitted to host a coffee/snack time before or after service. Therefore, once the service is concluded those in attendance will be dismissed. If you are going to have conversation in our parking lot, remember that the rules for social distancing still apply. Let’s be a good witness to those cars passing by!

h) Those who wish to give may do so online or by placing their offering in the Sanctuary collection boxes.

i) Those who wish to watch the service online may do so using the following link:
