***For the holiday weekend of Sunday, July 5th, we will only be having our 11 AM in person & online service***
Church family, we are excited to be wading through the waters of what it looks like to re-gather. We - SRC and the church community at large - have never crossed roads like this before. Our prayer and goal is to find a balance in protecting one another and caring for one another. Eventually, we will be able to gather again as a whole church family. Unfortunately, this is not that time just yet, but we will take it one day, one week, one month at a time! There is no one size fits all plan. We are limited by our meeting space in the number of people we will be allowed to gather for worship at church.
First and foremost, we need to be a church that is marked by being long on grace and long on patience. As none of us have been through unprecedented times like this, we will likely make mistakes. We will have the opportunity to flex our forgiveness muscle. SRC will be following the guidelines of the CDC as well as state and local authorities for what safe re-gathering will look like.
We now have the clearance to meet in groups of 50! Our new service times are Sundays at 9 and 11 AM. We will broadcast our 11 AM service live online for those who are still unable to gather in person. We will not have Summit Kids at this time, but children are welcome in service. We will also have our Climbers classroom open with a live feed of the service for those who may be more comfortable in a smaller setting with their children.
Those wishing to attend in person services will need to register each member of their household on Planning Center. Links to the upcoming service will be available each Wednesday.
We will have safety measures in place, including clear entering and exiting flow, sanitizer stations, spaced out seating for family groups for social distancing and a safe way to take communion. Our greeters will be wearing masks, and we encourage you to wear a mask until you are seated for service.
It will feel very strange to wear masks, to not enjoy coffee together in the foyer, to not shake hands or hug - but we will be BIG on smiles and encouragement! And we are still excited to gather again as a church family and enjoy the community that God has designed us for.
