What online resources are we offering families during this time?
Our Preschool and Children’s teams are working collaboratively across all of our campuses to provide a weekly resource with music, teaching, and encouragement, along with campus specific opportunities. Our Student Ministries are working together to provide a weekly worship/teaching time and continuing to contextualize opportunities specific to their campus. We’re also providing daily devotionals with family applications and activities, along with the Creating Healthy Families podcast. We will continue to develop resources designed to encourage and enrich your family on the Family Ministry page of our church’s website and on social media.
What is taken into consideration when making decisions?
Making decisions requires us to pray and consider many things we’ve never had to consider before. It’s our sincere heart to have in-person ministry, but we also want to minimize the potential risks of gathering as much as possible. Each of our campuses are in different locations with different congregation sizes. So, what works for one campus will not work for the others. We’re making decisions as best we can with that information in mind.
What safety measures are in place?
We are continuing to require health checks on all staff and volunteers before they serve. Staff and volunteers are asked to wear masks while serving on Sundays. We have increased hand sanitizer stations and are keeping to physical distancing guidelines by using designated entrances and exits. In our Preschool areas, all spaces/toys will be sanitized, and classes will not come in contact with one another while they are in the Preschool area. With the exception of pre-mixed bottles for infants, we will not be serving any snacks.
