A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR MICHAEL

Our response to the coronavirus

We desire to combat the fear and panic that is currently present in our society with a spirit of hope and peace that comes from Jesus. We maintain our passion to see people Decide to follow Jesus, Devote to spiritual maturity, and Demonstrate their faith to others.


Our staff has been working diligently to develop the best regathering plan for our church family. I want to provide you with a glimpse into the 9 steps I came up with to help us develop the best plan possible.


1. Prayer - We are continually seeking the Lord's wisdom as we make decisions for our church.

2. Honor - In the spirit of Romans 13, we are committed to honoring the guidance of state and local authorities concerning Covid-19 reopening. 

3. Research - Our team has participated in webinars, read articles, attended conference calls, and talked with other pastors to gather information for reopening. Our research has been tireless and abundant.

4. Assess - In order to ensure social distancing in our services we have measured our sanctuary, made charts, marked pews, and assessed how many people we can safely accommodate. To stay within the allowable number, we have instituted a reservation system for people planning to attend.

5. Plan - After an immense amount of planning, we can confidently say we are ready to welcome you to back to church. We have a plan for traffic flow, hand sanitizing stations, masks, entry point, a seating process, bathrooms, offering collection, and the invitation, to name few.

6. Procure - We are well stocked on cleaning supplies, sanitizer, extra masks, offering collection boxes, and extra signage. 

7. Survey - Per the results of our church-wide survey, we delayed our opening to allow us to observe how the reopening of other aspects of society affects Covid case numbers. 

8. Decide - With the help of our Covid-19 Task Force and deacons, our staff has decided to regather for in-person services on June 21. 

9. Communicate - Below you will find a link reserve a seat in the service and information to consider before you attend. If and when procedures shift, we will update the church by several means.


I understand that many of you are not ready to return to in person worship because you are uncomfortable or are part of the vulnerable population. I affirm your concern and encourage you to continue to worship with us online.


Pastor Michael

Can we Save You a Seat?

In order to ensure that we can provide socially distanced seating in our sanctuary, we are asking that you register to save a seat ahead of time. Signing up does not guarantee a particular seat or section. Since there are no services for kids or preschoolers, they will also need to be registered for seating. We are excited about seeing you in person!

Regathering Information

The following video provides information about the preparations we have made for your arrival and walks you through what to expect when you get here.
