Sunday Worship Gatherings

We are confident that with your cooperation, we will be able to continue gathering in-person safely. Due to building layout and capacity differences, gathering in-person may look slightly different at each of our congregations. We are grateful for the ways we can stay in touch and be together in whatever capacity you are able to join us!

Participating through the Livestream

We are planning to livestream for many more months, at least until we feel confident everyone can safely attend our gatherings. Even though we will continue to gather online for now, we don’t believe “digital church” is a long-term solution nor something like an acceptable form of “the new kind of church.” Rather, we believe gathering together and in a physical space is of utmost importance for the church.

Safety

As always, driven by the sacrificial love of the gospel, we will put other’s needs in front of your own, and we will inspire you to be generous towards others who have different views than your own.

We hold in tension people’s safety with the fact that meeting together in person as a church is very good.

Advanced Registration

  • Short North: Advanced registration is required for everyone, including children, attending an in-person worship gathering.
  • Tri-City: Advanced registration is only for kids whose parents are checking them into classrooms at the 9am gathering
  • West: no advanced registration

Other Safety Measures

  • We will not serve food or coffee at our Tri-City and Short North congregations. Coffee will be served at our West congregation.
  • Masks are optional; but please consider that public health officials advise wearing a mask if you are unvaccinated.
  • We will celebrate communion using prepackaged cups that will be at your seats in your designated area. Follow instructions at the gathering for a gluten free option.
  • We encourage you to congregate outdoors before and after the gathering for socializing. We want to limit our time indoors so we can decrease the risk of transmission.
  • Do not come to the worship gathering if you are feeling unwell or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea. Symptoms may be mild or severe and may appear two to 14 days after exposure to the virus.
