WEEKEND WORSHIP GATHERINGS

Welcome back! We are looking forward to worshipping with you in person in our new building. Our in-person service times are at 9 and 10:45 am. Our aim is to prioritize both your health and safety along with providing meaningful in person worship.

For those who cannot attend or who might be uncomfortable joining us at this point, we will continue to provide the service for you to worship online at home or with a group.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We will be taking the following precautions as we gather in person out of love for one another and to help protect those worshiping alongside us.

To maintain gathering guidelines, services will be limited to 180 attendees, and you will need to reserve seating in advance.  When registering, please select all members of your household that will be occupying a seat. Reservations for Sunday services will open at 2 p.m. the preceding Sunday and can be reserved through the reservation buttons below.

Before you come to the worship service, please take your temperature. If your temperature is at or above 100.4 °F, please stay home and worship through the online service. If you or anyone in your household are experiencing any symptoms, such as cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, loss of taste or smell for three days (72 hours) prior to a Sunday morning, we would ask that you stay home.

Out of an abundance of love and care for others, please be sure to have all individuals 3rd grade (9 years old) and above wear a mask for Sunday morning services. You can bring your own mask from home or wear the one provided during check-in.

Please maintain a distance of 6’ from those outside your grouping or family unit. You may seat yourselves after being checked in by the Door Host upon your arrival. Seating in the Sanctuary will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Ushers will be available to help you find a seat. Please continue to leave one seat in between your grouping and another.

To ensure a safe environment on Sundays, all seating and restrooms will undergo sterilization before and after each service.  Hand sanitizer stations will also be available in the lobby, and all staff will be self-screening for symptoms before arriving on Sunday.

Programing is offered for preschool through sixth grade at 9 a.m. and preschool through second grade at 10:45 a.m. All classes will be meeting outside, with the exception of preschool, who will be inside. Masks are not required outside for Children’s Ministry, but optional to any family who would like for their children to wear a mask. Masks are required indoors for children 3rd grade and up (9 years old).

Your child (at any age) is encouraged to join us for a family-friendly worship experience. We know that children can be wiggly at times, and that is okay, but we do want children to join their parents during the service! We have provided age-appropriate materials to use during the service.
