WELCOME BACK!

(WE ARE CURRENTLY IN STEP 2)

OUR WELCOME BACK PLAN

We are excited to share plans to safely welcome our church family back to our campus. 

The details of this approach reflect the guidance of different levels of government as well as the CDC and account for the unique needs of our own faith community.

The plans are flexible enough to adapt if needed, as our community, region, state even the entire country begins to recover from COVID-19.

We will continue to monitor all guidance from local, state, and federal agencies indefinitely while creating opportunities to worship, connect, and go that ensure the safety of our church family.

  • STEP 1

    We will take our first step towards meeting back together by offering outdoor events and following appropriate public health guidelines. All Sunday gatherings, Connection Groups, and other weekly ministries, including ValleyPoint Students, remain in online formats. Sunday gatherings will continue on Facebook Live.

  • STEP 2

    During this step, we will open our doors for small gatherings and other inside events, adhering to capacity and public health guidelines. Sunday gatherings will remain online, while ValleyPoint Students and Connection Groups may gather in-person under capacity and public health guidelines.

  • STEP 3

    During this step, we will increase the size of our inside gatherings. Weekend in-person gatherings will resume, adhering to capacity guidelines. We will offer adjusted seating and gathering options to ensure that everyone is safe and that we are following public health guidelines. In this step, we will not provide family ministry programs (birth-5th grade) at our gatherings.

  • STEP 4

    During this step, we look to take the final stride in meeting back together in-person. All gatherings and Sunday programming will resume, including family ministry programming. We will continue to adhere to all capacity and public health guidelines for as long as needed to keep everyone safe.

OUTDOOR SUNDAY GATHERINGS

We now offer an outdoor Sunday morning worship gathering at 10:00am. We will run outdoor worship on our property, weather-permitting, from August 9th until it is too cold or we can gather again inside our church home.

This outdoor event will be a modified 50-minute version of what we experience on most Sundays. The message will be the same as what appears online. Please know that all online options remain unchanged. You will still be able to watch ValleyPoint on Facebook Live at 8:30, 10:00, or 11:30am. Additionally, you can watch on demand from the church website at your convenience.  

The outside gathering gives us a chance, once again, to be together. If you need help getting to the field area where we meet, assistance is available. In the event that inclement weather makes outdoor worship impossible, cancellations will be posted on ValleyPoint’s social media channels and website by 8:30am each Sunday.  

KidPoint programming is not offered. Children attending will need to remain with their parents/guardians.  

Please register and join us for a great outside worship experience!
