REOPENING INFO

Two Sunday Services 9:15AM +11AM

Online + Onsite

 

On Sunday, May 17, we will begin to carefully reopen Elevate Church’s building for services.  The two key values behind our reopening are SLOW and SAFE.  As a church, our goal is to reopen as a safe place for our church family to worship in adherence to Governor Abbott’s Executive Orders for Religious Places of Worship.  The Executive Orders are attached below.  In addition, we have set forth clear guidelines that we believe will provide a safe and slow reopening of our Sunday services.  Please note: It is CRITICAL that you read all the way through this information.

Elevate Church’s Guidelines for Reopening (Phase 1):

  • Our First Sunday in the building will be May 17, 2020

  • We will limit gatherings to 25% occupancy or below

  • We will reopen with two Sunday services: 9:15AM and 11AM

  • We will continue to Live Stream services ONLINE at 9:15AM and 11AM

  • We strongly recommend the “At Risk” population to engage online, especially those with health issues. We will announce when this guideline change can be enacted.

  • All volunteers and staff will go through a health screening check prior to services.  In addition, they will be required to wear a face mask of their choice and sanitary gloves while on premises.

  • Elevate Church will practice all social distancing policies from the Governor’s Executive Orders, including:

    • No touch zone except for those in your immediate family

    • 6ft. social distancing in all common areas

    • Two empty chairs between attenders in the auditorium (except from the same immediate family or if you came to church in the same vehicle)

    • Seating in the auditorium will be every other row

  • We will postpone all onsite Kids Ministry until further notice.  Kids fun packets will be available for onsite services.  Kids ministry videos will also be available online.

  • We will postpone all Coffee Bar activities until further notice

  • We will sanitize all high touch surfaces including seating before, after, and in between all services.

  • All Connect Cards will be completed digitally.  We will have a “DROP ONLY” offering container.

As An Attender, you will be asked to adhere to these guidelines:

  • All attenders will be asked to answer general health screening questions and have a temperature check (touchless) prior to entering the building.  Anyone who cannot meet the health protocol set forth by the Executive Order will be asked to watch online from home.

  • All attenders above the age of 5 years old will be asked to wear a face mask of their choice.

  • All attenders will be asked to use hand sanitizer prior to entering the building and often inside the building.

  • All attenders will be escorted from the entry door to their auditorium seat by an usher. They will be asked to remain in their seat during the entirety of the service.  You can wave to others from your seat J!

  • Bathrooms will be available but will have a limit on the number allowed inside at one time.

  • All attenders will be dismissed at the end of the service by rows and escorted to the exit by ushers.

Special Note From Pastor Kalyn:

It seems surreal that we have now been in “shelter in place” for over two months.  None of us could have imagined the impact on our world, nation, and our daily lives.  But in the middle of the challenges, we have an amazing promise from Psalms 91:1 “Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” 

 

I want to thank each of you for your continued prayers and flexibility as we endeavor to reopen Elevate Church.  These are times like we have not seen before and things change every week in accordance with the Executive Orders from the Governor.  As a church, we want to model to our community the highest degree of integrity by reopening in a SLOW and SAFE way according to the policies set forth by our Governor.  More than anything, we want you to know that Elevate Church is God’s church.  The church will not just survive—we will thrive. 

 

The BEST Is Yet To Come!
