Will the church building still be open during normal office hours?
At this time, the office will be open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9am - 4pm. Our administrator and at least one pastor will be available during those hours. Our building will be closed on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Am I able to attend any church services or events?
We are seeking to honor the wishes of our government and health officials to limit gatherings to 10 people or less so that we can partner with our community in, Lord-willing, limiting the community spread of the coronavirus. At this time, all church events will be live-streamed through our website and Facebook page for you to enjoy away from our campus. We ask that no one come to the church building for any events except essential personnel that have been asked to attend.
What steps are being taken to keep our building sanitized?
We are working with our custodial team to be sure proper sanitization regulations are being followed to help prevent the spread of any disease in our building. That will consist of a deep clean in the near future as well as continual sanitization efforts. We will also try to take advantage of our cancelled gatherings to do other cleaning that may not be possible during times of regular use, such as carpet cleaning. We trust that this will instill confidence in all of our regular attenders and guests the next time we are able to hold regular services.
What is the plan for upcoming special events?
We are moving as many of our regularly scheduled services events to a livestream format. Other events are needing to be cancelled or postponed for the time being. Here is the information we can provide at this time:
Men's Conference - we have postponed this event and are in contact with our guest speaker to reschedule. If you have registered and paid, it will be honored when we are able to reschedule this conference. If you would like to receive a refund, please contact our church office. You can also utilize your registration fee as a donation to the church. Contact the church office if you would like to do that so we can add it to your giving statement.
Good Friday Service - while it is unlikely we will be able to host this service in our church building, the pastors and elders are working to still hold a live-streamed service focused on the cross of Christ.
Easter Sunday Service - barring a change in the restrictions on large gatherings, this will be a live-streamed service.
Silver Saints Events - any scheduled activities have been cancelled for the time being.
Church Picnic - Tanglewood Park has closed through May, so we have had to cancel this event
TES Golf Tournament - rescheduled to September 11
VBS, Resolved Summer Camp - because these events are still more than a month away, we are tentatively planning to hold these events. As they get closer, more details will be given.
