We have reopened the doors to Emmanuel to physically gather for church services again! We know that "Church" is not a building, that the church has been alive and active during this time of quarantine, but we  also know the scriptural imperative of meeting together physically to worship.

We will be reopening the church building for services prayerfully, thoughtfully, and in line with government protocols in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. We know that not everyone is ready to come back to church, and that is ok, we understand. We will continue to provide the services online until you are ready.

We have two services to choose from, our 9 am (indoors) and 11 am Service (Outdoors at Lovesong Community Hub). We are following the government protocol of 30% Capacity limiting our services to 140 people in the service. We have lots or room and overflow if needed. There is no need to register ahead, just come on out! 

Here are some of the Protocols in place:

Sunday 9 am & 11 am Service (if raining) inside Building:

  • You should not come to church if you have any Covid19 Symptoms: fever, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, tiredness, and  shortness of breath; if you have had contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid19 in the last 14 days; or have been out of the country in the last 14 days.
  • When Parking and in the parking Lot, maintain social distancing guidelines with others.
  • Everyone will enter through the Main Entrance, maintaining social distance. Greeters will open the doors for you, provide you with hand sanitizer, and will guide you into the building safely. All staff & greeters will be wearing face shields for your protection.

  • A reminder that there is no physical contact allowed within the building, outside of your own household. No hugging or handshaking at this time.
  • The 11 am outdoor service is WEATHER PERMITTING, if we can not have the service outdoor due to bad weather, it will be held indoors at Emmanuel, adhering to the 9 am indoor service protocols above.

We know that these protocols will be different, and that they will make church not quite the same! But our desire is to obey government protocols and keep everyone safe. We know that not everyone sees these protocols the same, and are reminding everyone to strive to keep the unity of the body of Christ, and to consider the interests of others.
