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 weekend:
Sunday, November 29th | 9am & 11am
Our Indoor Worship Service will be a time to safely gather within our Worship Center. Please park in the rear lot and enter the building through the southeast door by the tent.
We will be entering the Worship Center through the hall doors across from the main restrooms, and will follow strict social distancing guidelines seating one family every other row. Please provide a mask for each person in your family (over the age of 2).
At the conclusion of the service, we will dismiss through the emergency exit doors leading to the parking lot. You may stay and safely visit with others outdoors if you'd like.
Please note we are unable to offer tea and coffee at this time.
When registering, it’s important to select each member of your family who will be attending, not just yourself. We’re limiting the service to 100 people to do our best to ensure a safe distance between those attending.
Randy walks us through what to expect on Sunday:
Why do I have to sign up to come to service?
Signing up serves 2 purposes. 1) We are limiting the number of people attending each service to allow for social distancing. 2) We are keeping a record of who attends each service to be used for contact tracing should the need arise.
What if I'm not ready to come in-person yet?
How will communion work?
When you check in upon arrival, pre-packaged individual communion servings will be available. They will be handed to your household group by a volunteer with a mask and gloves to minimize touches. 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 arrive for an outdoor service, set up your household's chairs/lawn blankets a minimum of 6 feet away from other households. We ask that you please remain in your household's area for the duration of the service. When you arrive for an indoor service, wait to be escorted into The Worship Center, where your household will be seated together, but apart from other households.
Do I have to wear a mask?
Yes, everyone over the age of 2 must wear a mask for the duration of the service.
What if the weather is bad?
All outdoor services are weather permitting. We will update our website and social media a minimum of an hour before each service to let you know if we'll be meeting in person or only livestreaming.

Resources for at-home kids' worship service
Hey Road Rally Jr., Road Rally, and Ignition families,
With our in person services being canceled, we wanted to provide some resources for our families to worship at home.
On this page, you will find age-specific videos and activity pages for Road Rally Jr (birth-Pre-K), Road Rally (K-3rd), and Ignition (4th-6th)
In our next series, beginning November 8th, we will talk about how God’s promises for Abraham and Isaac were promises for Jacob too. God showed Jacob in a dream that He would bless Jacob’s family, which would grow to be a whole nation, as part of His plan to bring Jesus, the Savior of the world. We hope you will grow along with your child through this next series remembering that God has a plan for each and every person.
