July 30, 2020 Update

Greetings FOL Friends and Family!

If you haven’t had an opportunity to see our previous updates, we encourage you to read them towards the bottom of this page.

 

Since March, we have been searching ways to maintain some consistency in our lives and the church has been no different. From continuing to offer two worship styles the first few months of the pandemic to continuing to offer an online worship experience when we began holding outdoor services, we have done our best to provide a level of continuity for our Fountain of Life family.  We hope that you have found value in this, since we are all having to adapt to changes so rapidly. That all being said, we want to share with you a new change being implemented this weekend, and that also will continue to be provided when we are able to return to worship in the sanctuary.

 

Beginning August 2, we are transitioning from pre-recorded worship services for our online worshipers to livestreaming our outdoor services.  While we intended on holding off on doing this until we were back in the Sanctuary, we found it to be ideal to begin livestreaming sooner rather than later.  We are planning to continue to worship outdoors at least through the end of August but cannot know confidently that we will be back in the sanctuary in September until we are closer to that time.  Livestreaming outdoors may not be ideal for everyone, it comes with some additional challenges, such as the sunlight, heat, and limited equipment that must be setup and torn down each Sunday.  But it also comes with some advantages!  We will be able to worship together at the same time, no matter where we are!  We hope this brings as much excitement to you as it does to us!  You can access the livestream here.

 

A few other worship related updates for those worshiping with us:  Thanks to a special church family, we will have an event tent set up on the lawn for shade beginning August 2nd!  It has been a HOT summer so far and we are honored by those that have stuck with us in the sun these past few weeks.  The tent will offer additional shade while we can continue to maintain social distancing guidelines.

 

If you choose to worship from your car in the parking lot, we ask for those parking closest to the grass to keep their car engines off to reduce noise for those on the lawn.  If you prefer to have your car running, please park in a different row.  Don’t forget to tune into 106.3fm to follow along with the worship service from the parking lot.

 

The 9am outdoor worship service will remain weather permitting.  If we have to cancel outdoor worship due to weather, all members are encouraged to tune in to the livestream at 9am (which we will stream inside with the worship team).  If you miss the 9am livestream you will be able to watch a replay of service after the livestream ends.

 

Praying for you and your family during these challenging times,
