RE-OPENING INFORMATION

This page contains the most up-to-date information regarding Sunday services. Check back on a regular basis as circumstances change. If you have additional questions, call the church office, message us on Facebook or email the church office.

What To Expect

We are excited to announce that we will begin meeting on site at church on Sunday, June 21. However, we also realize that resuming our Sundays together will not look anything like it did in March. So much about our world has changed because of the COVID‐19 pandemic. Some of that change filters into places of worship as we adjust to finding the balance in meeting together safely. We understand that some of the following changes will not be everyone’s personal preference. So, we are asking everyone to be willing to compromise as we move ahead in a world that none of us has ever experienced before.

Limited Capacity

At this time, we are allowed to meet with 50% of our capacity. This means that we can have about 200 people in the sanctuary for each service, plus some overflow in the commons area.

Entrances

We are restricting access points into the building each Sunday. Those access points will be the two doors that enter into the commons/narthex area. The rest of the doors to the building will be locked.

Masks

We strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask during the service. The only exceptions will be the Pastor and the worship team. We will maintain a 12-foot minimum distance between them and the congregation. Please bring your own mask, as we will have a very limited supply for those that don’t have one.

Seating

Ushers will seat everybody attending, and do so in such a way to make sure that family units can socially distance from others. Ushers will also dismiss attendees out the wing doors of the sanctuary.

Child Care

At this time, there will be no nursery and children’s church available.

Restrooms

Restrooms will remain open and capacity will be monitored by volunteers.

Refreshments

There will be no coffee available. In addition, water fountains will be covered and unavailable. Please feel free to bring your own beverage. 

Fellowship

In order to sanitize the sanctuary and ensure proper social distancing, we encourage fellowship outside of the building.

Illness

If you are not feeling well, please stay at home! If you’re not comfortable meeting in a large group yet, please feel free to stay home as well. The service will be available to watch online via YouTube, Facebook, and our website.

Eph. 4:1‐3 is a great reminder to us in these times:
                             
“I therefore, as a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace”
