Welcome Back Home

We were made for community, and though we’ve been together apart, we are excited to start to gather back on campus! We’ve been working on a 3-part plan to safely bring us all together again, and we eagerly await that day! Below is what to expect in the days ahead. Our phase-in plan will be safety driven, not date driven.

PHASE 1

  • Family Worship only, 9:00 & 11:00 am
  • No Onsite Childcare
  • Hope Groups Online
  • Limited Onsite Activities

PHASE 2

  • Kids Worship + Childcare at 9:00 am Only
  • Onsite Hope Groups + Virtual Participation
  • Staff Return to Office (accept appointments only)

PHASE 3

  • Worship Service at 9:30 & 11:00 am
  • All Hope Groups Onsite
  • Office Re-opens to the Public
  • Preschool + Children’s Ministries Resume as Normal Onsite

JOIN US THIS SUNDAY (PHASE 2)

We are targeted to move into Phase 2 of re-opening our campus on Sunday, Sept. 13. We’re excited at the opportunity to see more of our church family in a safe way! Here are some things to know.

WORSHIP

We will continue to have family worship on Sundays at 9:00 & 11:00 am. We will still follow CDC guidelines and use extra safety precautions, sanitization and social distancing. We strongly recommend wearing a mask and will have disposable masks available for anyone needing one. Hand sanitizer is available at the door you enter.

CHILDCARE & KIDS WORSHIP

We are excited to open up Childcare (infants-Kinder) and Kids Worship (1st-5th grade) under Phase 2! These new opportunities for kids are on Sundays at 9:00 am ONLY.

Here are some things to expect:

  • Reservations: In order to carefully follow safety guidelines for class size and volunteer limits, these classes are offered by reservation. Walk-in registrations are welcome to any available spots. However, to secure your child’s place on Sundays, weekly online reservation is required. Children must be checked-in by 9:05 am on Sundays; after 9:05 am, their secured place will become an available spot for walk-ups. Spaces are limited.
  • Check-in: A volunteer will check-in families at the Check-in Stations. Children’s temperatures will be take before check-in and must be below 99.9 to be admitted into class.
  • Safety Precautions: We take safety seriously, and have invested in sanitization tools and practices to increase safety in the classrooms. All volunteers will wear a face mask or a face shield, and health and temperature checks will be taken for all staff and volunteers.

HOPE GROUPS

Hope Groups are a vital part of New Hope. These groups are relationship-based communities that offer focused Bible study and on-going support as you face life together. Phase 2 will provide a hybrid approach to Hope Groups meeting both in-person and virtually. All onsite classrooms will be sanitized and spaced for social distancing.

Adults: Adult Hope Group leader teams will determine with group members if meeting in-person Sundays is what’s best for their group. All groups will have the ability to include virtual participation.

Students (6th-12th): Both middle school and high school Hope Groups will be a hybrid of in-person meeting and virtual participation. Student groups will continue to meet Sunday nights at 7:00 pm.

Kids (1st-5th): 1st-4th Hope Groups will continue to meet virtually on Sundays at 6:00 pm; 5th grade Hope Group will be a hybrid of in-person meeting and virtual participation. Kids Worship will move to Sunday mornings at 9:00 am only (reservation required).

Preschool (infants-Kinder): Childcare is offered for Preschool on Sundays at the 9:00 am worship hour only. Preschool families will continue to receive weekly lessons and activity sheets via email.

Whether your group is meeting in-person or online, the most important thing is to stay spiritually and relationally connected. We were made for community and we need each other. Continue to check-in with group members and offer encouragement and support!

SHOULD EVERYONE COME BACK?

We look forward to seeing more families on campus under this second phase of re-opening! We do realize, however, that there is still a need to be safe and preventative. We encourage you to continue to worship and learn with us online if:

  • You are at a high risk age (+65 yrs)
  • You have a compromised immune system
  • You are sick or have been around anyone who has been sick
