In-Person ReturnPHASE 4 (starts May 2, 2021)
We are deeply invested in caring for the physical and emotional well-being of our community during this in-between time as vaccine rollout continues with overwhelming success and our world is in flux once again.
We remain tenderly aware that some must continue strict mitigation practices for the sake of their health or that of their loved ones, even as more in the community are receiving vaccinations and increased immunity.
With this in mind, Phase 4 will allow for 2 identical worship services with different levels of mitigation:
- Strict mitigation expectations
- Usher seating with social distancing maintained
- Masking throughout the entirety of one’s time in the building.
- Employs a standard of mitigation that is self-governed
- Individuals can choose when to mask
- Self-selected seating allows one to choose the degree of distance from neighbors during worship. (Ushers are available to help.)
10:30 AM worship continues to be livestreamed for those who prefer to participate online.
Our Spanish Worship is at 12:30 PM in-person and online.
Test-drive the 9 AM worship experience
If a member of your family is not feeling well or is running a fever, we ask that you please stay home and watch online.
If you will be in contact with high-risk populations in the 48 hours following worship, please consider the risk to their health before attending.
We will not be passing physical Connection Pads to collect attendance.
Instead, a table will be set up to check-in all worshipers. You can speed up this process by using the Church Center app to check-in your family.
If you’re new, we still want to connect with you. Please use Plan-your-visit to help us connect with you and fast-track your check-in process.
Individual packages of donut holes will be available at all services. We will be phasing in the coffee and water bar. Both coffee and water will be avaikable for the 10:30a English & 12:30 Spanish services.
Restrooms will have a paper towel or wipe dispensers installed to provide covering for handling stall doors.
Restrooms will have foot-pulls to limit contact with restroom door handles.
Communion will be offered every Sunday
- In worship on the first Sunday of the month
- Available in Lounge Room 2 on all other Sundays
COVkids Childrens Ministry
Anyone over 10 years will be required to mask during the 9a worship hour.
The 10:30 hour will allow for self-governed mitigation and optional masking.
As we transition, room numbers and age-group assignments may shift from week to week to allow for the best staffing ratio. We thank you for your flexibility.
Our indoor playground will open at 10:15a on Sundays and be available for play between services. It will not be open for the 9a worship hour.
