Online and On-Site Services
Church will look a little different, but we're excited to wade into the pool together!
I’d like to update you on our congregation’s regathering plan and ask your prayers. I’ve been meeting with physicians, fellow Sr. Pastors, ministry coaches, our elders, and staff regarding the regathering of our congregation. I’ve stayed current on state and local information. Here’s what seems wise—take a “wading into the pool” instead of a “cannonball in the deep end” approach. That’s the best way I can describe it. That means we’ll experiment with outdoor services, then evaluate, then re-calibrate, then experiment more. Right now, we’re hosting 2 indoor services each Sunday, while maintaining our live streams for those who prefer to worship online. We’re trying to act prayerfully, safely, intentionally.
Services for this week:
Sunday, June 20th | 9am & 10:45am
Our in-person Sunday Service is a time to safely gather within our Worship Center.
The Main Entrance and the Family Entrance doors are now open! Please use them.
Please exit the Worship Center immediately after first service so that sanitation can take place in preparation for the next service. Please provide a mask for each unvaccinated person in your family (over the age of 2) to be worn for the duration of the time you are in the building.
Please note we are unable to offer tea and coffee at this time.
Per the current CDC and State of Illinois guidelines, we will no longer be requiring registration to attend any in-person adult services.
As of May 2nd, we have resumed kids’ programming! Just like with our regular Sunday services, this will be an incremental process as we continually assess how to safely provide programming for as many kids as possible.
Who: Nursery – 3rd graders
Where: The Nursery & The Raceway
RSVP: Registration is REQUIRED
Drop off and pick up for Nursery (0-2) will be inside The Nursery.
Drop off and pick up for Road Rally (3-3rd grade) will be at the doorway of The Raceway – parents will not enter classrooms.
Masks are required.
Registration for both The Nursery and Road Rally is limited.
RSVP for June 20th Kids' Service:
What if I'm not ready to come in-person yet?
How will communion work?
Communion is available in pre-packaged, individual communion servings as you enter the Worship Center. If you are uncomfortable with this process, you are welcome to bring your own communion elements or simply participate in the prayer portion of communion.
How will you be managing social distancing?
When you enter the Worship Center, we ask that you make seat selections that enable you to keep at a safe distance.
Do I have to wear a mask?
Masks are optional for fully vaccinated adults. Please have children wear masks for their safety.
Sunday Morning Videos and Activities for Kids and Students
Resources for at-home kids' worship service
Hey Road Rally Jr., Road Rally, and Ignition families,
With our in-person children's programming being cancelled, we wanted to provide resources for our families to worship at home and reinforce the weekly bible lesson.
Below, you will find age-specific videos and activity pages for Road Rally Jr (birth-Pre-K), Road Rally (K-3rd), and Ignition (4th-6th). More in-depth resources are included in our Family Fun Packs or in our WRCC Kidmin Facebook group.
In our current series, we are learning how God used Joseph to provide for the people of Israel and bring them into Egypt, which set the stage for a glorious demonstration of God’s power to deliver. God raised up Moses to rescue His people from bondage in Egypt. God saved His people from physical captivity in Egypt like He would one day save His people from spiritual captivity by sending Jesus, a Deliverer greater than Moses.
Let us know how we can further assist and support you all as you continue to teach and disciple your kiddos at home.
For His Glory,
Student Ministry Director
Early Childhood Director
FAMILY FUN PACKETS
Our at home resources are being discontinued as we move towards reopening in-person Sunday Kid Min experiences. We hope you have enjoyed getting to learn and grow alongside with your kids over the past year.
If your family will be utilizing the online platform over in-person attendance and would like to continue to receive some additional resources to do at home, please email Jen at email@example.com and she will ensure you have the things you need to continue to disciple your kids at home.
As always, Family Ministry desires to partner with families in their children's spiritual development. If there is anything you need, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are with you all the way.
