A Message From Pastor Mark
Yesterday the Governor released new guidance that allows churches to have limited gatherings. As you know, I was prepared to wait until the end of June (or longer) before resuming services. I’m glad we waited on the Lord and allowed Him to open doors.
One thing I haven’t shared is that I’ve received multiple prophetic words about how significant Pentecost Sunday will be for Everyday Church, including a word from one of our board members. So I’ve been praying, watching, and waiting. There’s something about the significance of Pentecost in the history of the church and revival. I’m asking God to give our church, our region, and our nation a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
We will reopen services this Sunday, May 31st. To help commemorate this, I’ve invited my friend Jake Hamilton to come lead worship. I hope you can join us for this historic day.
Here are the details of our reopening:
• First, we’ll be following several guidelines put forth by the governor and his team.
• Second, we will have NEW SERVICE TIMES for now: Sundays 9 am, 10:30 am, and 6 pm.
• Third, families are welcome to worship together. Children must remain with their parents at all times. If children need to remain home, we invite each parent to attend a different service for now. Kingdom Kids will resume at a later date.
• Fourth, we will continue to Live Stream. You can worship online with us at 10:30 am.
• Fifth, we understand that health is very personal for each of us, so it’s important that we all work together so everyone can be comfortable and confident in worship. We ask you to treat others as you would want them to treat you (Mt. 7:12). Therefore:
–Please join our online Live Stream only if you have any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, flu-like, achy feeling, general sickness.
–If you are at risk, we recommend you join us for Live Stream service at 10:30 am.
–If you’ve had contact with anyone with COVID-19 and/or traveled outside of California in the past 14 days, please wait before attending in-person services.
–There will be foam sanitizing dispensers at entrances. Bring personal sanitizing gel.
–Greet one another with a friendly nod, air hug, or air high-five to avoid contact.
–Facemasks are welcome and encouraged, especially for entering and exiting.
–Our Mission Café coffee bar will be closed for now. Please visit outside the building.
–Give financially either online or in of the offering boxes on your way in or out.
–At the end of the service, allow us to dismiss you in sections.
Lastly, welcome home. We’ve missed you, and we look forward to worshipping together with you in person and via Life Stream.
