Over the past few weeks, our team has been working hard to map out a way to resume in-person gatherings of our church family. The details below outline this process of regathering, in stages, and what we can expect each step of the way.
CURRENT RE-GATHERING DETAILS
JOIN US THIS WEEKEND
Our desire is to continue to be respectful of the efforts that our local, state, and federal government is asking of us in the on-going fight against COVID-19. In addition, each of us must process what our re-gathering process means in view of our personal experience, bearing in mind our commitment to honor God, submit to one another in love, love our neighbors, and care for our brothers and sisters in Christ.
NEW SERVICE TIMES
SATURDAY 6:30PM SUNDAY 8AM, 9:30AM & 11AM
We have added an 8AM service time to provide an option for those in our church family who are vulnerable or considered high-risk. We are asking that no kids or students attend this service.
We are using a weekly online registration process (similar to what we do for Christmas services) to better equip us to manage the size of our gatherings. No printed tickets will be required, and registration will go "LIVE" for the week on Tuesday mornings at 9am!
KIDS AND STUDENTS
At this time we will not be offering separate Redeemer's Kids & Students classes during these weekend services. All children will be asked to attend and sit with their parents for our family-friendly services. If you have questions about what attending with your children may look like, please watch the short video from our Kid's Ministry team.
Redeemer's Students are meeting together at other times of the week! Middle School group hosts an in-person gathering starting June 22 from 5:30 - 7pm. High School group hosts an in-person gathering on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8pm.
