Sermon Follow Up Questions
Upcoming Youth Events
Having the students back together for the Challenge virtual conference was amazing, and we can't wait to spend more time with them! We are hoping to come together every other week from now until the Unashamed ministry year kickoff.
The next event will be held July 29th at 7pm at the church. We will have an epic water balloon fight and ice cream treats. Please encourage your students to join us, and to bring a friend!
As always - if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us!
Groups Meeting at the Church
Please remember to check in with the office when planning for groups to meet in the church building so we can put you on the calendar. We have had several instances recently where more than one group planned to use the same room. We want to accommodate everyone as best we may, but planning ahead is key!
Sunday Service Changes
We will now be offering the following Sunday service options:
8:30am - Reserved for the elderly & immunocompromised (meets in the west wing)
9:30am - Worship Service in the Sanctuary
11:00am - Worship Service in the Sanctuary
We are grateful for the opportunity to once again offer our Sunday morning worship services weekly at 9:30am and 11am! To allow for social distancing, we are continuing to limit attendance to 80 individuals, so reservations will be necessary. Reservations may be made through Signup Genius, HERE. If you prefer, reservations may also be made via phone or email.
PLEASE NOTE - you must reserve a slot for each member of your family/group, so be sure to pay attention to details as you sign up. It would be greatly appreciated if reservations could be made by 5pm on Friday evening to allow us sufficient planning time.
In addition to our 9:30am and 11am services, we also offer an 8:30am service reserved for the elderly and those who may be immunocompromised.
While we long to once again worship alongside our entire faith family, we ask that you do prayerfully consider the current CDC recommendations as you decide whether or not to attend group services.
For your safety, ushers will be waiting to open doors and to seat you, and we ask that all attendees practice social distancing before, during, and after the service. Masks are highly recommended.
As a reminder, there will be no nursery, children's church, or Sunday school offered at this time. The nursing mothers' room will still be available for individual use. We are aiming to resume our children's ministries by the beginning of September, so please stay tuned for updates!
As always, any questions or concerns that you may have can be directed to the church office at 308-832-1574 or email@example.com. We look forward to worshiping with you!
