On-Site & Online Service
August 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until September 6, 2020
In this new season of togetherness, our Sunday services have been redesigned to create a safe, contactless environment that allows for physical distancing.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU ARRIVE
- Check-In: Anyone planning to attend Sunday’s service will need to register in advance to reserve your seat. This new system will be in place to regulate the number of people entering the building to ensure we do not exceed 30% capacity (300-350 seats), and for contact tracing. Find out how to select your seats below!
- Arrival: Seniors and those with mobility issues are invited to arrive at 9:15am to be seated. We also ask everyone else to be mindful of their arrival time and plan to arrive before 9:45am to account for any delays. We thank you for your patience as we get everyone seated!
- Masks: Anyone 2 years old and older will be required to wear your own face covering.
- Physical Distancing: Our staff, board members and volunteers will be ready to greet you with smiles behind their masks! Families will be directed to enter the building, maintaining the appropriate physical distance according to markings. Hand sanitizer will be available as you enter and exit the building. The main auditorium has been carefully mapped out with appropriate spacing for your safety. Select chairs and rows are marked off, and seats are numbered. Family units will sit together. Traffic will be managed with directional flow and specific entry points based on seat selection. We’re asking everyone to wait in your designated seat until dismissed at the end of the service and exit the building immediately, without lingering in the auditorium, foyer, or parking lot.
- Contactless Service: We won’t have paper handouts, handshaking or offering baskets passed around during the service. But you’ll be able to drop off a donation as you exit the main auditorium and can continue to give online. We thank you for loving people from 2 meters apart!
- Family Service: There won’t be Kid’s Church or childcare provided, so children are invited to stay with their parents throughout the service.
- Shuttles: The shuttles will not be offered immediately.
- Food: No hospitality food or beverages will be offered.
- Bathrooms: Limited to emergency use only.

Once you successfully register for your seats, you’ll get an email copy with further instructions including which entrance to enter through (there will be signs posted outside indicating specific entrances).
