Hello, Church! We are excited to be gathering again in our buildings for in-person weekend worship services. We have taken time to think through all of the steps to best prepare you for our time together including adding a new area September 13th for our families to worship together. Hosted by volunteers and ushers, families will sit at their own table with activities for younger children provided. Here you can watch the worship service streamed to these locations! Our hope in creating this more relaxed environment is that some of our many families will feel more comfortable in joining us on the weekends. We will ask all participants to wear masks and that each family would sanitize the tables with the provided product when the worship service is over. Again, this Family Friendly Area is available starting September 13th.
Currently, in-person worship services require a reservation to safely accommodate attendees pursuant to the current Minnesota Department of Health and CDC Guidelines. Every Monday at 12 pm, registration for the coming weekend will open. You will need to reserve each week for future weekend services.
**All campuses but Northfield are required to register for the Family Friendly area.

How does social distancing work with the reservation system?
Our registration system will assist with social distancing as you reserve your seats. It is essential for individuals to sit in their reserved seats to ensure this process is effective.
Are masks required?
Yes. For the safety and health of all we are requiring everyone to wear masks. Children under the age of 2 do not need to wear a mask. Upon arrival, there will be hand sanitizing stations with masks available for those who didn’t bring their own.
Will child care or children’s programming be provided?
No. We will not have child care or children’s programming. As always, your children can participate in worship, by sitting with you. When you register for worship, please register your children as well.
What are your cleaning procedures and what does “Limited Building Access” mean?
Following every worship service, our cleaning teams will be sanitizing all areas of the building in preparation for the next worship service. There will also be limited building access. The parent’s room, nursing room, and the Lakeville campus balcony seats will be unavailable.
Where should I park and what door should I go in?
Depending on the campus you select, you will be directed to the parking lot nearest the entrance door. We ask that you enter in the door that is on your confirmation (if applicable). We ask that you do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of your worship service.
What should I bring the morning of worship service?
Don’t forget to bring a printed confirmation of your registration confirmation or be ready to show it on your phone/tablet. You will also need to have a mask and may want to bring a bible, pen, paper, etc. as we will not be passing these items out to limit touchpoints.
What if I need to cancel my reservation?
Due to our limited capacities, we ask that you please be considerate and release your reservation by logging back into the system so that someone else may reserve a seat.
What if I didn’t get to reserve a seat?
If you didn’t get to reserve a seat for the weekend you wanted to attend, we encourage you to continue to join us online for our weekly Church@Home experience and in our Morning Devotionals on Facebook Live (Mondays - Saturdays at 7 am).

The Worship service in the Chapel will be "live-streamed." Social distancing and masks are required. We look forward to worshiping with you!
