Sunday Services in the Worship Center

Sunday morning we will offer TWO SERVICES:
9 to 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. to Noon

The first service (from 9 to 10 a.m.) will also be broadcast live via YouTube and Facebook (see links below). Then, the video recording of that service will be available throughout the rest of the day to watch on-demand.  

We are taking a number of precautions to keep folks as safe as possible:

1) Our greeters and safety team will be holding us accountable to practice Social Distancing.

2) We will limit the number of seats we set up and limit the number of people we allow in each service.  

3) The chairs will be set up with Social Distancing in mind.  

4) Interactions will be kept to a minimum.  

5) Our greeters, safety team, and childcare workers will wear masks.  

6) We will have a cleaning crew clean bathrooms, classrooms, door handles and other frequently touched surfaces before and after each service.  

7) Childcare will be limited. In the 9 a.m. service, we will only offer a nursery for babies. In the 11 a.m. service, we will have classes for children from birth through kindergarten. Children in first grade and above will sit with their parents in the sanctuary.  

8) We will only offer pre-packaged breakfast bars and bottled water. We will NOT offer any self-serve coffee options.  

9) We will NOT pass an offering plate nor the Friendship Registers. You will still have ways to give, submit your prayer requests, and/or request additional info.

10) We also plan to locally broadcast the services via 88.1 FM. This should allow folks to sit in their cars and listen to the service from the parking lot. We are making this option available as overflow seating and for anyone who may want to “attend” the service but not interact with others.  

Everyone’s health and safety is very important to us. We will do our best to provide a safe place for folks to worship. Please realize those of us who attend the services do so at our own risk.   If you are experiencing ANY SIGNS of sickness, please STAY HOME and watch online.   Or, if you are in an AT RISK group, please stay home and watch online.  Or, if you are still hesitant about being in a public place, please stay home and watch online.  For the rest of us, we look forward to our return to the sanctuary.
