Reopening

Our plan for reopening our building for worship and ministry

Please take a few minutes to watch this update from our Executive Pastor, Bryan Eck:


As Bryan mentioned in the video above, our Sunday worship services and regular ministry programming will remain online only through the month of June. However, we hope to host some new outdoor worship gatherings to supplement our online Sunday services. As the end of June draws near, we will monitor local public health data to determine more exact timing for taking the next step in our reopening.

Criteria for Reopening

Specifically, we are looking for two weeks of decline in key metrics related to the spread of the coronavirus and the capacity of our healthcare system in Irving. Positive movement related to the management of the pandemic will allow us to take positive steps in reopening our building.

What’s Our Next Step?

Upon reaching the above criteria, the next phase of the reopening plan will include outdoor worship experiences, online Sunday worship services, as well as outdoor and in-person opportunities for our Adult and Next Gen ministries. During this time we’ll also be hard at work to finalize our protocols and training for our staff and volunteers for the upcoming return of indoor worship services and ministry experiences.

Worshiping Together Indoors

We will need to see two additional weeks of decline in key metrics related to the spread of the coronavirus and the capacity of our healthcare system in Irving before we progress to the indoor phase of reopening. We hope this is sooner rather than later, but once again, the exact timing will be driven by the data that reflects what’s happening in our community.

The good news is that this phase includes the reopening of our building for indoor Sunday worship services and ministry programming. To support this reentry into our building for worship, we’ll have protocols in place to help keep everyone as safe as possible. At the same time, we’ll continue to provide excellent online worship experiences and outdoor worship gatherings.

Bryan said it in the video, but it bears repeating: we love you, we miss you, and we’re so eager to gather with you in worship again. Thank you for praying with us as we work together toward reopening.
