A letter from our pastors regarding in-person services:
Hey Church Family!
We’re excited to let you all know that we are going to be starting in-person services Sunday, the 31st at 8:30 and 10:30am! After seeking God in prayerful consideration of input from our Advisory Team, Corporate Board, staff, local pastors in our community, the city, the police, the Dunn County Health Director, and the CDC, we will be taking some transitional measures to ensure safety and peace of mind for all those who choose to join us in person:
Children will be staying in service with us. We will have a short children’s message integrated into the service.
In place of physical touch, we encourage air-fives, air-hugs, and respect for one another’s space.
All appropriate doors will be propped open.
Bring your own beverage. Coffee and water will not be served.
We have elevated our cleaning measures to ensure as sanitary of an environment as possible. All common surfaces have been thoroughly sanitized (counters, handles, push-plates etc.) before first service, and will be sanitized between services.
We encourage you to leave two seats between you and other families.
The Nursery will be open to parents. Toys will be removed, please bring your own supplies.
We will be using the back door in the sanctuary (by the drums) as the exit door after the 8:30am service.
If you or someone in your family are not feeling well, please let us know so we can pray, and please stay home.
We know some of this will feel a little weird, but these precautions are small prices to pay in order to come together united in worship and to be respectful of one another. As we tweak things throughout this transition, we will be sure to communicate changes to you!
Once more, we encourage you to hear God for yourselves and obey His promptings and peace regarding your attendance. We don’t want anyone to feel pressured, ostracized, or judged in accordance with their decision as to whether or not they come, or precautions they are or are not taking (masks, desiring space, etc.) when they do come. We ask everyone to walk in love and demonstrate respect for those who are walking this out differently than them.
For those who will be staying home, we will continue to speak directly to you, and consider your online presence essential! Thank you for joining your hearts and homes with us as we experience and express the love of God together!
“Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:1-3 (NASB)
Much love from your pastors,
Paul, Dana, Steven, Kara
