Hey Church!

As we follow guidelines from government and healthcare officials, Connection will be gathering online and beginning May 17th begin to offer in person services again. However, we are providing resources to equip you to gather as a family at home for each ministry area (see below). As information evolves, this page is the primary, most up-to-date place for you to receive answers to commonly asked questions. We are committed to doing everything we can to provide a safe environment for our church family and surrounding community.

When will Connection resume in person services?

Tentatively we will begin in-person services on May 17th (we will still stream our service). However, there will be several things to know on what these services will look like so we can create the safest environment for our members.

What to expect when returning?

There are several changes/precautions we will be taking that we are asking everyone to follow. Please see below:
  • Every other row in the Auditorium will be blocked.
  • Konnection Kids will remain CLOSED at this time, and all families will be asked to sit together (However, we will have activity bags available for the young kids to keep them entertained during the service).
  • A minimum of 2 seats must be in between each family/individual.
  • A Connector will be in the Auditorium helping people find seats and ensuring correct distancing is taking place.
  • Please no handshakes or hugs, but smiles and waves are still welcomed!
  • Mask will not be required at this time, but you are more than welcome to wear one. Please make the best decision for you and your family.
  • Please be considerate of other peoples space and try to remain socially distant as much as possible.

What precautions is Connection taking to make gatherings as safe as possible?

Connection is taking extra cleaning precautions at this time. This includes:
  • Wiping down all common area touch points (e.g., doors, light switches, countertops, etc.) throughout the day with disinfectant.
  • All doors will be propped open to limit touched surfaces (Exterior doors will close during the service, but staff will remain in hallway to open the doors for those coming in late)
  • Placing sanitizing bottles and wipes in common areas throughout the buildings
  • Bathroom touch points will be disinfected before each service, after each service begins, and after each services ends.

Should I come back to church?

While we place a high priority on gathering together as the church for worship and other activities, we still want to make wise decisions on how to best do this.  First and foremost, if you are feeling sick or running a fever, please stay home! This is the best way you can love your neighbor. However, we still encourage you to worship online with us at 10:30 AM through Facebook Live so you can stay connected. Don’t forget we are also providing all of the materials (Videos and Lessons) for kids on the KONNECTION KIDS Facebook page so they can still have church at home too.
The other thing we want to encourage you to do, is to pray and ask God what the best decision is for your family. We all are going to have different reasons for wanting to come, or wanting to wait a little longer and we respect each of these decisions and we encourage you to do the same. We are excited to begin being around each other again, but know this is going to be a process and things will still have to happen in stages, especially with things like starting Konnection Kids back again. Safety is always one of our top priorities, but we need everyone’s help to ensure that can happen effectively.

What precautions can people take when they come to Connection?

We encourage everyone to take certain steps to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus, flu, and other illnesses, including:
  • Washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Using hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available
  • Not touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
  • Staying home if you are sick
  • Covering your cough or sneeze
  • Disinfecting objects and surfaces regularly
