Our official plan for reopening Abundant Life
Following our Federal, State, and Local government guidelines, we are planning to reopen in a set of three-phases. In order to provide flexibility to our plan no dates have been given. Additionally, please note that our phased approach may not coincide with the State's phased plan to reopen.
Continue digital gatherings with Online Institute Classes & Small Groups. The Church at Home Experience is based on your level of comfort. We'll be encouraging you to gather in homes to connect and discuss weekend messages or other content.
Continuing practices from phase one, we'll be putting together a number of physical social events, that coincide with Federal, State, and Local guidelines.
While continuing with the practices of the previous phases and we'll be reopening our building with the proper safety precautions in place.
We encourage you to invite others to join you online or at home to discuss weekend messages, other content, and to connect with one another. Choose a platform and learn more about the Institute and to how to host digital gatherings using Google Meet or Zoom.
They are not directly aligned because the government's phases are not yet specific to gathering sizes. However, we will be strictly following the governments gathering guidelines as they are published
We will announce it in the following ways:
- The platform during our services
- All social media platforms
- Push notifications on our church app
- Email to our congregation
We believe, due to the virus and gathering regulations this would not currently be safe or a superior experience to doing it at home. As soon as we believe the experience on-site can be safe and superior to the experience you can create at home, we will move to Phase 3: Church at Church.
Visit our Church at Home page for links to tutorials for Zoom and Google Meet.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or text "Reopen" to (315) 888-5332.
We don't know exactly when we can do this due to the fluid nature of the virus and our government's regulations. We can't wait until the day that we can safely gather together again!
Whomever you would like. It is entirely up to you as to how you do church at home with other people. We would ask that you do not invite more people to your home than what is limited by our government regulations when Phase two begins.
You can invite anyone you would like! This is a great opportunity to invite people that may not go to church regularly. We encourage you to invite anyone you feel comfortable with having in your home.
We understand why you may feel that way. Please only do whatever you are comfortable with. We encourage you to find other ways to connect during this time. The church is meant to be done in community.
No, you do not have to report anything to us in order to host a gathering. But we would like for you to let us know on live chat about your experience during one of the services. We'd love to hear from you!
