Outdoor Worship Information & FAQ’s

NC Guidelines have allowed us to worship outdoors, this is a privilege that we take seriously! We also understand not everyone will be comfortable in public worship yet, so we will continue to offer one online worship service each week that will incorporate both traditional and contemporary elements.  For those who do not have internet access, Worship at Home services will continue to be mailed.  Outdoor worship is an opportunity for us to be together and we need your participation in keeping yourself and others healthy.  We cannot wait to see you Sunday as we worship God outside: in His creation! Please read the information below and feel free to contact the Church Office if you have any questions or concerns.

FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN:

We understand children are struggling to comprehend what is going on and how to do things like “social distancing”.  This presents challenges to parents that you were never prepared for.  We empathize with you, and are praying for you!  We are sorry for the inconveniences these guidelines put on you and your children!  We will continue to provide activities and coloring pages available on our FOLKids@Home page you can print and bring with you!  As well as continue to offer online Children’s Church, and Online Worship services if you choose to continue to worship at home.

– Family units may share one or more seating area(s), and do not have to observe social distancing among family members.

– Children should stay with their parents.  Bringing a blanket or stroller might be more comfortable.  The playground, and indoor spaces (like the nursery, kitchen) will be closed.  This excludes the bathrooms, which will be open.

– Children under 10 years should be accompanied by an Adult, especially during bathroom visits.
