WELCOME BACK

Join us outside at 9:30am or 11:00am at our Church Campus! Not ready to be back in person? We're always streaming on our Online Campus as well.

HERE'S WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE

Our small services will be casual experiences with a welcoming community, acoustic worship, and an outside hangout time after service. Make sure to bring your own coffee! 


Gatherings will be held in either our Sanctuary or Northwest Room, with our normal rows of chairs removed. Ushers will bring a chair to you, so you can sit comfortably, while maintaining social distance from those outside your household. During our Family Services, kids will be offered a chair, but may want to sit on the floor (bring a picnic blanket!) since we’ll be passing out activity packets to keep them busy. 


We’ll still be having a time of singing for worship and a message, and be shortening services to 50 minutes.

3 KINDS OF SERVICES

ONLINE CAMPUS

There are some who are not ready to be back in public yet and we get that. That's why online services will stay mostly the same, just with a new name and time. If you attend online, you are part of our Online Campus, streaming at 10:00am on Sundays. You are still part of our church and we want you to feel Welcome Home, at home.


FAMILY STYLE OUTDOOR CHURCH CHURCH

We are inviting the whole family into our services! On Sunday morning, there will be two outdoor services open to everyone in your household, together in one place. 


In compliance with the law, we ask that everyone wear a cloth face covering. If you do not have one, we will have them available in service. If you have a health concern with masks or do not feel comfortable, you can participate drive in style, listening through your radio.

PARKING

When you arrive at our campus, there's a place for you. There are over 200 parking stalls in our lot, with 7 handicapped spaces. 


COME ON IN

We're an upstairs church, so come on up! We are currently using the West Entrance for entering and the Main Entrance to exit (though the elevator in the West Entrance is always available). If you have any questions, the Welcome Center is the place to go. Ask anyone with a yellow tag on - we're happy to help!


SERVICES

During our gatherings we are going to sing songs of worship together with a worship band, listen to teaching from the Bible, pray together and have an opportunity to give through tithes & offerings. 

Our services start at 9:30 and 11:00 on Sundays. They typically last around an hour, with time to chat afterward outside.

COMMON QUESTIONS

I have kids. What will church be like for them?

We’re so glad you’re bringing your kids! Though we cannot offer Kids Church or the nursery at this time, we are preparing the best service we can for them. During service, your children will get activity packs and special greetings from the stage to help them participate in the service. If you have little ones, the Family Room will still be open for meltdowns or diaper changes. Social distancing will still be in effect in that room, which will limit the amount of people who can be in that room. There will not be toys or activities in this season.


After service, we want to give them a fun place to play! Unfortunately, our Play Area inside will be closed down. Instead, after service, outside of the Main Entrance, we will have a hangout time where you can chat with others and your kids can run around.


Will people be wearing face masks?

In compliance with CDC guidelines, we are asking that every person over the age of two years wear a cloth face covering. If you do not have one, we will have them available in service. However, we understand that not using a cloth face covering may also be appropriate at times for some individuals with select health issues.


Will I be required to shake hands with people?

Nope! In fact, part of social distancing requirements are that we do not touch one another during service. And for a church of huggers like us, this will be a change! We’ll all be doing our best to respect the guidelines and find new ways to greet each other.


How am I supposed to know what to do? The rules have changed. Will it be awkward?

Everything is awkward these days! But we’ll do our best to make things easy on you. Pay special attention to posted signs, as they will help you navigate new guidelines. Additionally, after registering for your service, we will be sending you an email with all of the special information for your chosen service. 


Will I be able to talk to people after church?

Spending time with others is some of the most special times we get at church. On Sundays, we will have an outdoor hangout space for you to spend time with others after church. 


How will I know that there are only 50 people at each service?

For this season we are asking each family to register online for their preferred service time.  This will allow each family the freedom to choose what works best for them, while also ensuring we are staying at 50 people.


If there are already 50 people in the service, will I be turned away at the door?

Short answer: we will not be turning people away. However, having a limited number of people per service is brand new to us, so we are figuring some things out as we go. We will have an overflow space available in the Lobby where you can watch service. Our heart is that no person will ever be turned away!

SAFETY PLAN

Health

Keeping our community healthy is of the utmost importance. We are asking that anyone who has experienced illness, including a fever of over 100.4, who has had Covid 19 like symptoms, or been in contact with someone with Covid 19 not attend service. During our Friday Night service, which is catered to protecting the most vulnerable to contracting the virus, forehead temperatures will be taken at the door. Any person with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be able to be part of the large gathering.


Protective Gear

In compliance with CDC guidelines, we are asking that every person over the age of two years wear a cloth face covering. If you do not have one, we will have them available in service. However, we understand that not using a cloth face covering may also be appropriate at times for some individuals with select health issues.


Social Distancing

While on the church campus, all attendees will be expected to adhere to social distancing guidelines. The chairs in our meeting rooms will be arranged to create comfortable distance for all in attendance. 


Bring Your Own Coffee

During this phase, our normal hospitality elements will not be available. We will be looking for new ways to make the service as comfortable as possible for you and your family.


Sanitation

We are aiming to make the service as touch free as possible. Doors will be propped open, hand sanitizer stations will be positioned around the building, and disinfectant wipes will be on hand for high touch surfaces.


Cleaning Team

Our staff is creating a team specifically for cleaning before, during, and after services. Midweek, we will be continuing to practice deep cleaning.


Read the Signs

There will be specified entrances for each service, in-doors and out-doors for our meeting rooms, and safety measures posted. Paying special attention to posted signs will make the process as smooth as possible!


CDC Guidelines

All measures are seeking to be in compliance with the CDC guidelines, which change regularly. Read the guidelines here.
