MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER
Outdoor Service & Live Online
Sundays 9 AM
WHY GATHER TOGETHER AGAIN?
1. YOU NEED PEOPLE
2. GOD SHOWS UP
3. PEOPLE NEED YOU
4. CHURCH IS A SIGN
So let’s come together again.
Here's What You Can Expect On Sundays
We want to do whatever it takes in this season to share the gospel and be the church! We’ll be gathering outdoors on Sundays at 9 AM in our MVC church parking lot for a family-style service.
We will do our best to respect the needs of each person, whether you will join us online or in person, we’re committed to providing quality ways for people to receive biblical teaching, worship, participate in groups, and receive pastoral prayer and care.
We will be doing our part to keep everyone healthy and safe. Here’s what you can expect:
- We will be ensuring a clean, safe, and sanitized facility.
- We will be encouraging families to stay together and social distance from others, keeping 6 feet of distance.
- We are encouraging people to wear a face covering if unable to ensure a safe distance.
- We ask that those are feel sick, have symptoms, or a known exposure stay home and suspend any in-person gatherings or events.
- Services will be shorter in length and family-friendly.
- We ask that you bring your own blanket or chairs to sit on.
- We recommend those that are high risk or vulnerable to join us online or in their cars.
We understand that it may be hard for some children to sit still for the entire service and may occasionally find social distancing challenging— we will give them love and grace!
If you are not quite ready or able to attend in person, we invite you to join us online or in your car. We will have dedicated parking spaces for those that wish to stay and remain in their cars (space is limited, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve).
Our team has been working hard behind-the-scenes praying, researching, and considering all data provided to protect our community and keep everyone safe.
We will do whatever is takes to move forward together in our mission to worship together and bring the hope of Jesus to the world.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email us at email@example.com and someone will reach out to you!
