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?
At this time we are hosting two identical services on Sunday mornings at 9am and 11am. The 9am service will be live-streamed and archived for later viewing. Attendance at these services will be organized by CareGroups in order to keep our numbers in accordance with government regulations. For the weeks your CareGroup is scheduled to attend, please utilize our sign-up form to let us know which service you would like to attend. Guests are welcome to attend; please sign-up for a service so that we can anticipate your attendance! For the time being, Wednesday evening Bible studies will be live-streamed only. We will continue to monitor government regulations and make adjustments as needed.
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. This has consisted of a deep clean during the time of quarantine as well as continual sanitization efforts. We have also accomplished other cleaning that was more difficult to do during times of regular use, such as carpet cleaning. Beginning Sunday, May 24 we will sanitize the portions of our building used to host services between every service.
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.
VBS - Due to the continued uncertainty of what the summer months will hold, our church leadership in conjunction with our children's ministry workers have made the decision to cancel VBS this year.
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 for the Spring. We are still planning to enjoy our Fall picnic on Sunday, September 20.
TES Golf Tournament - rescheduled to September 11
Resolved Summer Camp - Because this event is still more than a month away, we are tentatively planning to enjoy this opportunity. As the event gets closer, more details will be given.
