Outdoor Worship - With Indoor Option
Update: With the weather getting colder we have changed our worship time to 3:00PM.
In response to COVID-19, we are holding our Sunday morning worship services outdoors with an option to sit inside the building. This will help to ensure a safe environment while still allowing us to gather during this crisis. We hope you'll join us!
Sunday morning worship services will be OUTDOORS AT THE BUILDING AT 3:00PM.
Please exercise your own discretion about attending services. We ask that if anyone is sick or showing any symptoms, to please stay home. We also broadcast the service via Facebook Live, so you can watch from home.
We will meet in the field next to the church building. There is a large flat grassy area that gently slopes towards the building. Our address is 4516 Oakley Pirkle Rd, Martinez, GA.
During our outdoor worship we also provide audio and video to the auditorium. If you prefer to be inside, you may worship from the auditorium and watch the outdoor worship service on a large video screen. Masks and social distancing are required inside the building.
What should I bring?
Lawn chairs (we have chairs if you don't bring them)
Water (drinking fountain will be off limits)
Weather appropriate clothing
Lord's Supper emblems (optional). We take the Lord's Supper together every Sunday. We will provide individually packaged communion elements (grape juice and a small wafer), but if you'd like to avoid additional social contact you can bring your own emblems instead.
If you would like to stay in your car, the service will be broadcast via FM radio 89.7FM.
What if it rains?
If it begins raining during services we will move to our cars and listen via FM radio.
If we know ahead of time that it is going to rain, we may cancel outdoor worship and hold services online instead.
How long are services?
We intend to keep the entire service to no more than an hour.
Restroom, nursery, and children
The foyer restroom will be available and the first classroom has been converted into a nursery for mothers with babies. There is a speaker in the nursery so you can continue listening to the service.
We do not provide child care during services. We aim for our worship and sermons to be edifying for all ages. We encourage you to bring your family and sit together.
There will be ushers directing you to the field and helping those who did not bring their chairs or communion emblems. ALL SERVERS WILL HAVE MASKS AND GLOVES ON.
Families will sit together while maintaining 6 feet or more distance from other families.
Bring lawn chairs for comfort and umbrellas, if desired, to provide shade. There will be some chairs provided for those who do not have lawn chairs or forget theirs.
An outdoor speaker and microphone will be used.
Please let us know if you have any questions!
