Worship in the Time of COVID19

Sunday Mornings 10:00 am – 10:45 in the Family Life Center
Join us in our Family Life Center as we worship God using a combined contemporary and traditional service of worship.

After much prayer, research, and planning over these many weeks and months of church closure – our Re-entry Team is announcing that we will return to Sunday morning worship in the Family Life Center for one combined service at 10 AM. We have taken every precaution, protocol and guideline seriously to ensure maximum safety for all participants:

1. On arrival we will have on our parking lot, every other parking space blocked off to make people more comfortable. The FLC has been cleaned and sanitized – and will be again following each service with special attention to handrails, doors, and “high touch” areas etc. There will be one entrance, and one separate exit from the building. Please follow our signage. For those with special needs we will have the ramp doors to the FLC dedicated for your use.

2. The space available in the FLC will allow for adequate social distancing both entering, seating and exiting. Families will be able to sit together. Small children must stay with their parents at all times and not allowed to roam. There will be no nursery, Sunday School, or Kings Cafe at this time.

3. Masks are required upon entering the FLC to be worn at all times in the building. People on the platform will be masked when not speaking or singing.

4. The water fountain is closed, but you may bring your own personal water bottles, etc.

5. The bathrooms will be open with a maximum of 2 people at a time – and the user must use the wipes and disinfectant available to clean after using.

6. There will be several stations in the FLC available with hand sanitizer.

7. We will not be taking an offering Sunday mornings and are still encouraging people to give electronically or mail their tithes, gifts and offerings.

8. The indoor worship will be shorter in length than pre-virus services and as inclusive of our various worship preferences as possible.

9. We will continue to provide the weekend message via YouTube on our channel each week for people who feel that worshiping at home is a better option for them at this time – and will do so until we are “live-streaming” our services so people at home can watch “live time” the service (or recorded for later. We will be continuing our on-line presence with our Zoom Bible Study on Wednesday nights at 7 PM, Zoom Coffee-Break with Pastor Bill on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 AM, the “School of Faith & Life” discipleship series on our YouTube Channel, and special times of gatherings and prayer via Zoom. Invitations and information come via email (so it’s important we have your most recent contact information), website and Facebook page.

10. We will be monitoring virus impact in our area and respond accordingly to insure the health and safety of all.

11. We strongly insist that if you have a fever, or feel ill, or someone in the residence where you live has a fever or not feeling well – you are not to come to the service, but worship at home. If you have recently traveled and have been exposed to an area of high concentration of infections (“hot spot” or “spike”), please worship at home.

As you can see, we are taking your safety and health very seriously and want the very best for each and every one of you. We heartily support your decision of attending on campus or at home – and will provide ongoing support for all of our church family and friends – on campus and off-campus! We will get through this together, and as Don Moen expressed in his powerful song: “God will make a way where there seems to be no way. He works in ways we cannot see, He will make a way for me. He will be my guide, hold me closely to His side. With love and strength for each new day, He will make a way, He will make a way!”
