Returning to In-Person Service
We are in the last stages of finalizing plans to gather in July. Thank you to those who took our survey, it was incredibly helpful in making plans to resume services. We hope to be transparent during this planning process, so we wanted to share some of the most important results. Below are some of the results of the nearly 200 people who took the survey:
- When the Park reopens (with appropriate cleaning and social distancing measures in place), almost 60% stated they would return, or return with reservations.
- In regards to what precautions would be taken, if any, when attending in person worship over 50% stated they would attend with masks, over 70% with sitting/standing 6 feet away from one another, over 70% with avoiding any physical contact, over 60% avoiding crowded spacing, and over 70% bringing hand sanitizer.
- 70% are likely or very likely that they would attend as a family without Family Ministries available.
- Less than 50% said they would leave their children in Family Ministry classes while they attended service.
Good Neighbor Cohorts
In partnership with Mission City Renewal we are excited to bring you Good Neighbor. Good Neighbor is designed to be a resource for those who want to take a deeper dive into their neighborhoods and communities — to know the people and faces and actively engage the challenges and opportunities. Take the framework and make it your own. Bring your own context to life as you adapt and use these Guided Conversations, Immersion Experiences and Action Project Roadmap to explore how to be a Good Neighbor. We are rolling this out in two phases: 1) A Good Neighbor Preaching Series beginning June 7 where we will explore Jesus teaching on neighboring, sacrifice, reconciliation, and kindness. 2) We are launching learning cohorts with the good neighbor curriculum. These cohorts will take about 4-6 weeks to complete and about 2-3 hours of your week. You can meet online or in person, whatever feels right for you. A cohort can be your family, a group of neighbors, a discipleship core, missional community, or any group you want to gather. For more information, or to sign up to participate you can click here.
