Cue all the praise hands!  We have reopened our building for in-person worship gatherings!

Gate Kids check-in and check-out procedures

Pre-registration and early check-in are available

We are practicing the following safety measures:

  • Please wear your mask or face covering at all times while in the building -- while socializing, singing, and listening to the message. All people ages 10 and over who are able to wear a face covering are required to, per the state mandate. We will assume anyone not wearing a face covering has a medical condition.
  • About half of the chairs in the Worship Center have been removed, and the remaining chairs have been spaced out.
  • Seating is also available in The Hub where there are distanced furniture groupings.
  • Members of our Hospitality team will be in the Worship Center to help people get seated.
  • Only Door 5 (the cul-de-sac) and the Gym entrance will be open. The Gym entrance is handicap accessible.
  • Hand sanitizer is available inside both entrances to the Worship Center.
  • Coffee is once again available in The Hub before the service. It will be served in cups with lids, and creamer and sugar will all be single-serve. Social distancing will be required. As always, please feel free to bring your own coffee.
  • We recommend social distancing and ask everyone to please be respectful of others' comfort levels.
  • If you feel ill at all, we ask that you stay home and participate in the service through the livestream.

Safety Precausions and Practices


“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7


“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7
