Family Ministry Activities Online Only

As you know, family ministry environments are not conducive to the level of social distancing currently required to keep everyone safe. Therefore, we are unable to provide activities for our Tab Kids at this time. All children will need to stay with their families during the service.

We encourage all families to visit the Online Family Content section of our Website. Each week our team works hard to make sure age appropriate activities are available for your children and students.

    • In light of our Governor's recent face mask requirement, we'd ask that everyone comply with the set order. Politics aside, wearing a mask is the loving thing to do in helping prevent the spread of Covid-19. Let's make it our aim to move beyond personal preferences and work hard in outdoing one another in showing honor (Rom. 12:10) We will have masks available for those who are unable to bring one from home.
    • Masks are not recommended for those under 2 years old, those with breathing problems, or those who need assistance removing their mask.
  5. Use the restroom before you come.
    • Restrooms will be available if needed, but avoiding traffic through the restrooms will help us minimize the touching of shared surfaces.

    • If you’re experiencing COVID-like symptoms, or if you are uncomfortable attending for any reason, please stay home and worship with us remotely via our online livestream.
