Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have put certain protocols in place for the public gatherings of the church. These measures are informed by CDC guidelines, advice of medical personnel, and our desire to maintain a Christ-honoring testimony in our community.

A message from Pastor Rogier:

We are asking that you wear a mask while entering and exiting the building, in the hallways, and during congregational singing. Please do not make masks a political statement. Rather consider it a way to show love towards others in attendance.

Avoid personal physical contact. Do not hug or shake hands.

Please do not attend any of our in-person services if either of the following apply to you:

  • You have had fever, cough, achiness, or other symptoms of illness in the past 14 days
  • You have been exposed to the virus (such as through a job or family member) even if you are asymptomatic, or if you have traveled to “hotspots” where you may have been exposed to the virus. Please err of the side of caution in this regard.

If you are in a higher risk category (because of age or compromised health) please use extreme caution in choosing whether to come or not.

Sunday Morning
Indoor Service in Auditorium
  • Please do not attend our indoor service if you have had fever, cough, achiness, or other symptoms of illness in the past 14 days, if you have been exposed to the virus (such as through a job or family member) even if you are asymptomatic, or if you have traveled to “hotspots” where you may have been exposed to the virus. Please err on the side of caution in this regard. 
  • If you are in a higher risk category (because of age or compromised health) please use extreme caution in choosing whether to come or not.

Outdoor Service

On Choosing to Attend:

Please do not attend if you have had fever, cough, achiness, or other symptoms of illness in the past 14 days, if you have been exposed to the virus (such as through a job or family member) even if you are asymptomatic, or if you have traveled to “hotspots” where you may have been exposed to the virus . Please err of the side of caution in this regard.

If you are in a higher risk category (because of age or compromised health) please use extreme caution in choosing whether to come or not.

Avoid personal physical contact. Do not hug or shake hands.

We are encouraging you to wear a mask while entering and exiting the building and in the hallways.

Bring your own coffee. There will be no refreshments on site.

There will be a locked box near the back where you will enter the seating area. Online giving is always available as well. We will not be passing the offering plates to receive the offering.

On Entrance and Parking:

The Cooper Road entrance (between the church and the Lighthouse) will be closed down. All cars will enter by the West entrance by the Heritage House or the Telegraph Road entrance. There will be parking greeters at these entrances to help direct you to the parking.

If you wish to listen to the service from your car, please let the parking greeter know so they can direct you to the parking places that are reserved for those who wish to stay in their cars.

On Seating:

Please bring your own lawn chairs or folding chairs to sit in. We will not have chairs set up. The podium will be set up by the West Entrance double doors.

Please spread out over the whole area. Leave at least 10-12 feet between you family and others. Do not crowd others. If there is any doubt about room, please leave more room, not less. Assume that the people around you love you even though they don’t ask you to sit closer.

There will be audio and video equipment set up so be aware that lines of sight may be hindered in certain places. Of course, you can always pull up the Livestream on your device if you choose to sit in your car. Please note that the Livestream typically runs about 30 seconds behind.

Upper Fellowship Hall Livestream

On Sunday mornings, the South side of the building will be a masks-required area. Masks will be required upon entry through southern-most entry doors and in the Upper Fellowship Hall.

Our Sunday service will be livestreamed in the Upper Fellowship Hall on a big screen and loudspeakers. Chairs will be set up spread throughout the room. Attendees in the Upper Fellowship Hall should sit at a distance of at least 6 feet from other attendees not in their immediate families.
