We are so excited to get the opportunity to celebrate as a church in a new way this Sunday!
As we transition into a more communal state of our worship gathering, please be mindful of others and observe the points below.
We will still be gathering as a Drive-In, but with a twist! You and your family will have the option of setting up camp chairs, blankets or using one of the chairs provided so you can enjoy the fresh air while singing together as we gather. Please make sure that you take home anything you bring with you.
When you arrive, please use the Lee Ave. entrance where the greeter will be stationed. Please let the greeter know whether you wish to be inside or outside your car and they will direct you to where you should park and share any further instructions. They will have self-contained communion supplies and a worship folder with any information and children’s coloring sheets you may need for the service. Please remember to bring your own crayons or other coloring utensils and a hard surface for them to color on.
Once you are situated in your spot, whether in or out of your car, we ask that you remain there for the duration of the service in order to maintain the health and safety of our community. Restroom access will be limited to urgent needs, so please make sure to plan accordingly.
Lyrics for our corporate worship will be provided on the Good Roots website and a printed copy will be included in the worship folder.
The sermon and worship will be broadcast to your car’s radio at station 89.3 FM.
This will be a wonderful opportunity to gather as followers of Jesus and we hope you are able to join us! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to any of the elders.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
God has made gathering outside so easy by giving us 22+ Sunday mornings without rain! Although He could continue doing so, we are anticipating the blessing of rain. We are implementing a Wet Weather Plan for the month of September. Here is how it will work:
-If the weather forecast on Friday is wet for Sunday morning, we will announce (email/social) that the service will move inside the sanctuary (with 2 additional participation areas).
-The sanctuary space will be set to mitigate virus spread.
*Doors and windows will remain open.
*The exhaust fan will be on.
*Rows will be spaced out.
*We will keep our shortened liturgy (45-60) minutes.
*Individual communion at your seat.
*Once in your seat, you are asked to stay there.
-The foyer will have chairs set for more distanced seating. The TV will show a live video of the sanctuary stage.
-A 'Drive-In' option will remain. Cars will park in designated spots facing the front doors where a TV will show a live video of the sanctuary stage.
*Upon arrival at the church building, indicate to the parking usher that you would like to stay in your vehicle.
-No coffee will be provided.
-Masks will be made available by our greeters (masks are welcome, but not mandatory).
-Nursery and children's classes will not be available.
-If you are sick or have been exposed to someone with Covid please stay home.
