Childcare Services start July 19th

We know that what families feel comfortable with at this time will vary, however, we want to provide options in order to accommodate as many as possible. Children are still welcome and encouraged to sit in the sanctuary with their families or view from home via the livestream. We also plan to offer childcare at the 10:00 am service on July 19th as a “trial run,” and will move forward from there after more volunteer input, prayer, and consideration. 


Here is the outline of childcare services that will be available: 
  • Nursery (ages 0-2) = 10:00-end of service
  • Toddler Room (ages 2-5) = 10:00-end of service
  • TRIBE (grades K-4) = right before sermon portion of service – end of service
    • **NEW: TRIBE kiddos will begin by sitting in the church service with their parents. They will participate in the worship songs. Then, Aaron will dismiss them to TRIBE  right before he begins the sermon. They will stay in TRIBE until the end of the service. The purpose of this is so the children can experience a corporate worship experience with their family and feel as if they are part of our church body. 

Here are some of the guidelines we will have in place: 

  • To help with social distancing, the TRIBE kids will go out to the trailer. The toddlers (2-5) will meet in the large room to the right of the refrigerator (current TRIBE room), and the nursery will stay in the same place. 
  • Childcare workers will be wearing masks. 
  • Parents are NOT allowed to enter the childcare rooms. Meet at the door of the designated classroom to dropoff/pickup your child. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in all rooms. 
*There will be a Childcare Ministry meeting after each service July 12th for parents and childcare workers*

 New Service Times

We have one service at 8:30 am and another service at our regularly scheduled time, 10 am. Our livestreams will continue at 10 am on Facebook and Youtube. We ask that anyone who can make it to the 8:30 am service please do so! This opens up space at the 10 am service for guests who don’t watch the videos and receive the newsletters. Also, if you do happen to come to the in-person services, please make sure you are moving all the way to the front of the sanctuary, and please try to leave the middle section open for larger families.
If you would like to help be on the clean up crew in between services, please contact
