- Sunday: 9:00a, 11:00a, & 4:30p
We are excited to be back with our in-person worship experiences! We will be rallying both adults and kids to in-person worship experiences with capacity limits that allow for social distancing.
In order to keep the attendance well managed we will have a registration that is required for both you and your kids. We will have all 3 services right away: 9:00a, 11:00a, 4:30p. You may register yourself and family by clicking the following link. Make sure that you understand the guidelines listed below.
We are asking for kids to come and go with masks on if over 3 years old. During the children’s service time they will be guided as to when they can go without masks because they are properly socially distanced. We feel this will allow for a lot of freedom but still try and respect what we are asked to follow by the IDPH and CDC health organizations.
Please consider arriving 15-20 minutes early to allow time for the extra precautions detailed below. Service durations will also be shortened to be right at an hour in length, In order to manage and clean/disinfect between services.
Please help us as we initially begin meeting. We will be asking everyone to not shake hands or give hugs. While you may be comfortable with that level of contact, there are others who are not. So we will be respecting the social distancing as we start up again. For those unable to come or not yet ready to gather in a larger group setting, our online services will be continuing at 9:00a, 11:00a, and 4:30p.
We will be actively welcoming/greeting everyone, as we always have. However, rather than making physical contact (like a hand shake), the greeters at the door will be welcoming you and taking an amazingly warm and inclusive … temperature with a no touch thermometer. :) We love you and are looking to make sure we are as safe as we can. We will not be able to allow anyone to enter the building that has a fever.
We are asking that each person come with a mask. We would ask that you wear the mask when you enter or exit, as you will be closer than 6’ to others. Once seated in the worship center and properly socially distanced, you may remove the mask if you so desire with the exception listed below under "singing." You may also wear the mask the entire service if you so desire.
We will be participating in a shortened but full service that includes singing. Studies have shown that singing out with any power does tend to spread germs more easily. So, we would ask that if you are standing and singing with us that you wear your mask. If you desire not to wear a mask during singing, please join with us in singing quietly and/or using other physical expression like raising hands. We fully understand that this is limiting, but let’s join in together and celebrate our Savior in whatever way possible.
We will not be passing Friendship Registers, Offering bags, or Bibles. This is in order to again limit the amount of contact that may spread the COVID-19 virus. The Friendship Register is now available digitally through our app, or on our website under the Resources tab. The offering will be collected by ushers at the door after the service, who will be holding the offering bag. At this time, physical Bibles will not be passed out either. Access to digital Bibles are available by phone in many ways. We would recommend the ESV version from YouVersion.
As we start in-person services, we will be using every other row in the auditorium. Each family will sit side by side. We are asking that you keep 2 chairs between (left or right) you and someone not from your immediate family. Ushers will be helping you be seated and released after the service. Please help out by following directions well.
We now have hand sanitizer dispensers mounted on the walls around the atrium. Feel free to use the sanitizer as you enter and/or as you leave, as you feel needed.
We will have restrooms open and available. Feel free to use as needed, but please be aware of trying to respect social distancing, or have your mask up.
We will have water fountains turned off. The Café will be closed, so we will not have coffee or teas. Again, we are simply limiting the touch contact.
After the service, the ushers will release row by row. Please remain seated until the ushers release you. We would also ask that you move out of the atrium and head outdoors rather quickly. This will help limit social distancing while indoors. It will also allow us to begin cleaning the worship center and atrium before the next service. Once outdoors, feel free to interact with other families before departing.
