What you need to know about tours, first service in the new worship center & masked options

We are excited to let you know that the proposed date for our first Sunday in our new Worship Center will be Sunday, July 19 (pending the granting of temporary occupancy)! We will be moving to our 2 new service times of 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. beginning on that first Sunday in the new building.

Also, we know this day may be sad to miss for many of you who aren’t ready to come back to in-person services for various reasons. To help with this, we are considering a masked family service at 1 p.m. on July 19, if there is enough interest. You can complete our survey here. Follow the link to help us with planning in a variety of ways.

Children’s and teen programming, along with most of our Sunday morning groups, will be returning on July 26. More information about what the regathering of our kids and teen programming will look like will be sent out in the coming weeks.

Help us plan for future services

We want to ensure that we will continue to have the space to facilitate safe gatherings, especially as we move into our new worship space, and as our kids and youth programming regathers. We’ve put together a  survey to help us evaluate how and when people might be attending in coming weeks. This survey is not a RSVP; instead, it is a tool to help us gauge interest in service times and formats.

Take our survey >>

Also, we know many of you want to attend in-person services, but are not comfortable in large groups yet, are staying home out of safety concerns, or have health issues that make it difficult to gather. Some of you have reached out about the possibility of offering masked services for a season. Our staff team is working through what that could look like, and we need your input to better gauge interest in masked services. We have not made a final decision, yet, but if masked services were offered, it would most likely be for a season and in a family service format. Use the link below to let us know your interest in these services.

We want you to see the new space and hear more about the vision for our ministry areas! Join us for a church tour July 8-11! Tours are scheduled for every 20 minutes, and group size will be limited to approximately 25.

We will be offering masked tours during the 5 o’clock hour on Wednesday, July 8, and during the 9 o’clock hour on Saturday, July 11. Anyone above the age of 4 attending a tour during these times will be asked to wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, we will have some available for you.

Moving help needed!

We have furniture to assemble, shelves to hang, cards to sort and so much more! If you are interested in helping us the week of July 5 and July 12, please let us know on the survey. Note your availability and any skills you may have – we have jobs for all skill levels! We’ll also be posting volunteer days/times closer to move in.

Thank you for continuing to celebrate in worship with us during this season. Thank you for your grace and flexibility as we navigate what it means to regather, to connect in community and to celebrate what God is doing in these new days.
