Drive-In & Outside Service

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.


Songs

Holy, Holy, Holy

Holy, holy, holy

Lord God almighty

Early in the morning my song shall rise to thee


Holy. holy, holy

Merciful and mighty

God in three persons, blessed Trinity

Holy, holy, holy


All the saints adore Thee

Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea

Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee

Who was and is and evermore shall be


Holy, holy, holy

Though the darkness hide Thee

Though the eyes of sinful man Thy glory may not see

Only Thou art holy and there is none beside Thee

Perfect in power, in love and purity


Holy, holy, holy

Lord God almighty

All Thy works shall praise Thy name in earth and sky and sea


Holy, holy, holy

Merciful and mighty

God in three persons, blessed Trinity


All I Have Is Christ

I once was lost in darkest night

Yet thought I knew the way

The sin that promised joy and life

Had led me to the grave

I had no hope that You would own

A rebel to Your will

And if You had not loved me first

I would refuse You still


But as I ran my hell-bound race

Indifferent to the cost

You looked upon my helpless state

And led me to the cross

And I beheld God’s love displayed

You suffered in my place

You bore the wrath reserved for me

Now all I know is grace


Hallelujah! All I have is Christ

Hallelujah! Jesus is my life



Now, Lord, I would be Yours alone

And live so all might see

The strength to follow Your commands

Could never come from me

O Father, use my ransomed life

In any way You choose

And let my song forever be

My only boast is You


Jesus Is Better

There is no other

So sure and steady

My hope is held in your hand

When castles crumble

And breath is fleeting

Upon this rock I will stand

Upon this rock I will stand


Glory glory we have no other king

but Jesus Lord of all

Raise the anthem

Our loudest praises ring

We crown Him Lord of all


Your kindly rule

has shattered and broken

the curse of sins’ tyranny


My life is hidden ‘neath heaven’s shadow

And your crimson flood covers me


Glory glory we have no other king but Jesus Lord of all

Raise the anthem Our loudest praises ring

We crown Him Lord of all


In all my sorrows, Jesus is better

make my heart believe

In all my victories, Jesus is better

make my heart believe

Than any comfort, Jesus is better

make my heart believe

More than all riches, Jesus is better

make my heart believe

Our souls declaring, Jesus is better

make my heart believe

Our song eternal, Jesus is better make my heart believe

Glory, glory, we have no other king but Jesus Lord of all
