We’re excited to welcome you back

in the building on Sunday mornings.

For those who feel comfortable and choose to gather in person during this time, please know your safety is very important to us. We have implemented a number of measures to help you safely and confidently return to worship.  We will also need your help to allow everyone in attendance to be more comfortable and more safe.

Please familiarize yourself with the information below.


How to Save Your Seat
After clicking the “save my seat” button below, a new window will open where you will choose the date and service time you wish to attend, and complete the signup process.

What We Are Doing

  • Additional Cleaning: Cleaning and sanitizing measures will be performed.
  • Hand Sanitizer Stations: Additional hand sanitizer stations will be available at entrances and throughout the building.
  • Screening Volunteers: All staff and volunteers will be pre-screened for any Covid-related symptoms before each service.
  • Shorter Services: Initially, our in-person services will consist of special music, prayer and the message. At this time, we ask you to refrain from singing, but encourage you to worship as our musicians share their gifts and talents with you.
  • Hands-free Experience: All doors will be open for you wherever possible. Check in will be done via our Church Center App, which also will serve as our main giving option. Baskets will be provided at the entrances for your gifts if you choose to give in person.
  • Seat Spacing: We have reduced our seating area to comply with CDC social distancing recommendations of six feet between individuals and family groups.
  • Illuminate KIDS & United 4 Him Youth: Our Nursery, as well as our children and youth ministries will not be offered initially, but children and youth are welcome to join their parents for worship.
  • Coffee, Donuts, Water Fountains: No food or drinks will be served at this time.
  • Welcome Areas:  We ask you not gather in the lobby of the Life Center or in the Fellowship Hall.  However, we would love to see you outside, and we encourage you to take any conversations outside after service. Whether inside or outside, please be mindful of others and practice safe social distancing.
  • Handshakes & Hugs: At this time, out of consideration and care for everyone and to promote safe social distancing, we have asked all staff and volunteers to refrain from handshakes and hugs, and we are asking all of our guests to do the same. We appreciate your help and cooperation with this as we work together to keep everyone comfortable and safe.

What We Are Asking You to Do

  • Personal Health Considerations: If you are sick, exhibiting symptoms, or have had close contact with a person with Covid-19 in the last 14 days, please stay home and enjoy our worship online, Sunday mornings at 9 am and 11 am.
  • Keep your distance: We are asking each household to practice physical distancing and remain 6 feet from others whenever possible. Please be especially mindful of this while entering and leaving the facility and throughout our common areas.
  • Spread out a little: Please leave 3 empty seats between you and others who are not part of your family or household. Our ushers will be available to help you find a seat if needed.
  • Face Coverings or Masks: Everyone is to bring and wear face coverings while in the building. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.
  • At-Risk Groups: If you are elderly or have underlying medical conditions that would put you at higher risk, we recommend that you not attend and instead join us by worshiping online from home.
  • Save Your Seat: Because seating is now more limited to enable physical distancing, and to make it possible for everyone to join us in a safe and orderly way, we are asking everyone to save your seat for an upcoming service by going to whatis1st.com/savemyseat
