Saturday, 6:00pm - masks optional*
*Masks optional: Once you are at your seat you can remove your mask. Please wear a mask when entering and exiting the building.
Why do I need to pre-register for an onsite service?
In order to facilitate social distance we have limited seating available for each service time. Your pre-registration helps our volunteers know best how to prepare and assures that everyone who comes will have a seat. Think of it as us saving a seat for you (although seating will not be assigned). Check in will be at the main doors when you arrive. If you have not pre-registered you'll have the opportunity to register onsite if there are still available seats remaining.
Do I really need to wear a mask?
We recognize that opinions and feelings and emotions are all over the map when it comes to masks. For this season, out of love and deference to others we will ask that all who attend onsite services wear a mask at all times while they are in the building. If you do not have a mask, our volunteers will give you one at the door. For clarity and intelligibility, those leading the service will remove their masks only when they are on the platform. At all other times they will also be wearing masks. On November 15, we made the Saturday 6:00pm service a mask optional service.
When will masks no longer be required?
We are regularly monitoring federal and local government suggested guidelines, as well as seeking input and feedback from doctors and other medical professionals both within and outside of our church family. We are unable to point to a specific date right now. Currently, the Saturday 6:00pm service is a mask optional service.
I'm over 65. Can I come to a service onsite?
We miss all the faces and ages in our church family. The CDC states that anyone age 65+ and/or with underlying medical conditions are at higher risk and should stay home if possible. This is not something we will mandate or enforce, but rather we will trust each individual to act at their own discretion. We share this out of our care and concern for your well-being.
What safety precautions are being taken to clean the building?
All of our volunteers for all of our services will be wearing masks and, depending on their specific role, plastic gloves. Our check-in, greeting, and other processes are designed for you to have to touch as few surfaces as possible. Volunteers will hold doors open for you. Bathroom doors will remain propped open. Water fountains will not be operational and will be covered. Our cleaning team will clean the bathrooms, door handles, worship center seats, etc. before, in between, and after every onsite service.
I'm not quite ready to be back at the building. Are online services going to stop?
Our service will live-stream each Saturday at 6:00pm on Facebook, YouTube, and on our website. The service can be streamed on demand any time after that.
