INFO & SIGN UP FOR IN-PERSON SERVICES
Hope Church Re-Opening
Under the guidelines of government officials, Hope Church will have in-person services this weekend. However, things will be different than usual.
While we cannot guarantee a germ-free environment, we are taking steps to help prevent transmission of Covid-19. You can read more about those steps below. If you are sick, have a fever, present any signs of cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has had COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please stay home.
We care about your health and safety. If you are in a high-risk group, we encourage you to continue attending online at this time.
- Sunday | 10:45am
As a result of social distancing guidelines, our capacity is limited in each service in the Main Auditorium. Please email Pastor Qwashun to let us know if you’re planning to attend!
Our Safety Guidelines
Our sanctuary has been re-set to allow for social distancing. We’ve measured and observed the federal standards—six feet between family units.
At this time, we will have main services only. There will be no kids ministry activities, nursery, childcare, or connect groups.
To help prevent the spread of infection, we ask everyone to wear a face mask any time you’re not at your seat in the Sanctuary. If you forget, one will be provided for you. Infants and toddlers will not be required to wear a mask. If you have a health condition that makes it impossible for you to wear a mask, we understand. When you are at your seat in the Sanctuary, you may take off your mask until it is time to leave.
Common areas and gathering spaces of the building will be closed. That includes the coffee bar and any place where people might congregate.
Each week, the sanctuary and all high-touch surfaces will be disinfected.
Hand sanitizing stations are set up throughout the sanctuary. We encourage their frequent use.
If you need to sneeze or cough, please cover your mouth and nose or sneeze into your elbow.
We will continually wipe surfaces in the restrooms and other high-touch areas.
Greeters will be wearing masks and gloves. We will not shake hands, hug, or high five. Instead we will wave and smile.
We encourage you to continue giving online. During services, we will take an offering. Ushers will wear masks and gloves. They will walk to your family and allow you to drop your offering into a bucket, touch-free.
Parking & Entering/Exiting
You will need to wait in your car until approximately 15 minutes before service.
When you enter the building, you will be directed to a seating area for your family. We will seat people form the front of the room to the back of the room.
After service, we will dismiss you and direct you on exiting the building to ensure a quick, safe exit.
Stay Connected With Your Church Family
We know you are practicing social distancing and spending a lot of time at home, but that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone! We have plenty of opportunities for you to stay connected with your Hope Church family online! If you choose not to attend services in-person, we totally understand! We’d like you invite you to join us online this week!
