Overview

We are excited to resume indoor worship services (after Easter) at our normal service times of 5:00 on Saturdays, 8:00 and 10:30 on Sundays.  

 

Please understand that we cannot eliminate all risk when we gather for worship and classes (if you attend, you are assuming the risk).  This is why we have worked hard to enable people who may be at high risk of serious COVID complications to join our worship services and classes remotely via Facebook, our website streaming, and Zoom.  


Again, please keep in mind as you read through the details of our plans that this is a constantly evolving situation, and these procedures may change at any time.

RSVP System

We ask people to make a reservation for Easter so we can set up and arrange enough chairs.  (After Easter, no RSVP is needed!)

 

Please RSVP for Easter by clicking HERE or calling our church office at 480-969-4414.   If possible, please do this at least 24 hours before the desired worship service.

 

Once you've made your RSVP, you're ready to come to worship - you will NOT be e-mailed a seat assignment.

families with young children

We encourage families to bring their own items for their children to use during the services, but our staff has also prepared one-time use bags which will be available when you arrive.  


After Easter we will resume our professionally staffed nursery!

Worship materials

You will receive an announcement bulletin when you arrive, but there will not be any materials in the pews.  Offering envelopes will be available at the offering boxes behind our seating.  In lieu of pew materials, download our app to check-in, view the weekly readings, see previous sermons, submit prayer requests, and access our weekly bulletin, among other things.

masks

City & county mandates no longer require people to wear a mask, and staying in line with these regulations, we no longer require people to wear a mask at our services.  We continue to monitor the active COVID situation, and will keep some safety guidelines in place, such as asking people when possible to spread out in our pews using the yellow stickers as a guide.  We ask everyone to be gracious and respectful of others who may or may not keep their distance or wear their masks our services.

contingency plans

We have created communication protocols, backup plans, redundancy efforts, and further policies in preparation for the event that an attendee or a staff person is found to have been contagious with COVID-19.  If circumstances arise that require us to cancel our weekend services, we will communicate that expediently through all of our communication methods.


Please call us (480-969-4414) if you have tested positive for COVID-19 and attended a worship service in the three days prior to the onset of your symptoms.  We will not share your personal information, but will inform other attendees so they can adjust their plans as necessary.

bible studies

Our bible study classes and small groups will be held in a mixture or combination of in-person and/or on Zoom.  Click HERE to see the available classes, times and links to each study.

in conclusion

These procedures were created of loving concern for all of God's people.  We know some of these policies are inconvenient, and we ask you to join us in praying that God would provide medical breakthroughs and solutions very soon and bring us through this time quickly.
