What To Expect

Sunday Morning: What To Expect

LOCATION

Our building is located in Peoria, on West Deer Valley Road, across from Ray’s Pizza, Kawaii Sushi and Fry’s, beside Culver’s and Brakes Plus.  We have parking in the front, back, and sides.  

PARKING

We have parking in the front lot (facing West Deer Valley) but we also have extra parking in the side lot and back lot (behind the building). Handicapped spaces available in both lots. 

WHAT ABOUT KIDS?

We are an all-ages church with plenty of families.  Kids are welcome to sit with their parents throughout the service, and we’ll have some activities ready for them.  We’ll also have the option for kids to check into safe, fun, age-appropriate classes.  

WHAT KIND OF HEALTH PRECAUTIONS ARE YOU TAKING?

We have always taken CDC guidelines very seriously. We do this because we want to honor others above ourselves (Romans 12:10) and love our neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:31). We also know and love people who have been directly impacted by COVID-19.

Here is what will be the same about both services:

Both services will have identical content, same songs and sermon
Both services will have some reduced seating capacity
We are outfitting the foyer with screens so it can be used as overflow space, available during both services

Kids ministry. Kids are always welcome to sit with their parents/guardians in worship. We will also have great kid’s ministry available in the kid’s ministry area. In order to maintain the safest possible environment for kids and teachers, we ask that everyone who can, both kids and adults, mask up while in the kid’s ministry area.
Expect single-serve communion, a drop-box for the offering (not passing the plate), hand sanitizer stations, masks available, and some extra cleaning. We don’t plan to serve coffee at this time, but that could change. We’ve always tried to show hospitality by holding doors open for each other, now we have an extra reason to do this!
Here is what will be different about both services:

At 9 AM, masks will be required for everyone. Lower capacity, more distance, and fewer chairs in the worship center.
At 10:30 AM, masks are optional for those in worship. We will still have some distance, but we will have more chairs available than at the 9 AM service.
FYI: The 10:30 AM service will be Livestreamed for those who are joining us from afar.
