Outdoor Worship Service at 10am
We rejoice in having the whole church family together at ONE time in our parking lot!
*see below for rain continency plans*
What safety precautions are planned?
All government covid restrictions are carefully followed. This involves strictly maintaining 2m of distance between households, especially under the trees and the sidewalk area. Please place your lawn chairs at a respectful 2m distance for the worship service, and carefully stay apart when arriving and departing. Masks are only required if you cannot maintain 2m distance. You are welcome to wear one if you wish.
Also, please self-assess for covid symptoms and stay home if you or anyone in your household is unwell. We have ample outdoor space for our entire church family to distance. We can’t wait to sing and worship together this weekend!
Good to Know:
Bring chairs for everyone in your household and come prepared to worship outside.
4 large tents available for seniors and those that need shade. Please make sure that seniors and the vulnerable have access to those spaces first. Please do not sit in the marked access paths through the trees.
Nursery (ages 0-35 months) is available throughout the service. Please pre-register here each week. Parents drop your child off at the indoor Nursery door and pick them up immediately after the service. Children are not required to wear a mask, and volunteers will continue to follow all Covid safety protocols.
The Woods (ages 3-gr5) – Please pre-register your children at this link each week. Children will be gathered after the worship time for their own outdoor program. Please ensure your child brings a mask, labelled with their name. Masks will only be used if we need to go inside to play or cool off. After the service please immediately come to pick up your child at the south end of the church building (Woods wing doors).
For those who wish to remain in their vehicle, we will be transmitting the audio of the service over the radio. Let the parking volunteers know, and you’ll be directed to a parking spot in the viewing area. Tune your car radio to FM station 90.1 to hear the service.
Lyrics for worship music will be available in the e-connect, here on the website, as well as by texting “music” to 705-728-3017. Please print your own or download and view them from your device.
