REOPENING MLC

Reopening Mountain Life Church

We are excited to welcome you back and see your smiling faces again as we reopen Mountain Life Church to Sunday morning worship services. We are now holding onsite Sunday services at 9:00 and 10:45 am in the Worship Center. We look forward to welcoming those of you who would like to come worship onsite, while we continue to offer our 9:00 am service as a live stream option on Facebook, our Sermons page and our mobile app for those who are more comfortable staying at home to worship. We are also offering our Spanish speaking service in The Loft on Sundays at 10:45 am and live streaming on Facebook.

A great deal of time and thought has been devoted to reimagining the day when we could reopen again to worship together. The safety and well-being of our church family is of utmost importance to us so every safety and sanitation feature we are implementing is done with that in mind. Please continue reading to gain a better understanding of what to expect in order to help you make an informed decision. We thank you for your understanding and patience as we all navigate this new environment together.

What To Expect As We Reopen

SERVICE TIMES
  • ENGLISH: Sundays – 9:00 & 10:45 am in the Worship Center
    • Our 9:00 am English service will be live streamed online.
  • SPANISH: Sundays – 10:45 am in The Loft
    • The 10:45 am Spanish service with Pastor Ruben will be live streamed on Facebook.
  • Each service will be no longer than 60 minutes in length to allow for cleaning and sanitizing between services.
  • We ask that you arrive a bit early to allow for everyone to be seated for the start of the service.
 
YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR SEATS FOR THE ENGLISH SERVICES
Since safety and health is uppermost in our mind, we have established social distancing protocols and will ask everyone to abide by them. The Worship Center is set up with 6 foot spacing between seats or seat clusters for families. Since this significantly reduces the total number of available seats, we will be introducing an RSVP system.
  • The RSVP link will be made available (on our website, app, and social media) to everyone the Monday morning through Friday night before each Sunday.
  • Once capacity is reached for a service, reservations will be closed for that service.
  • On Sunday mornings we will have a check-in table for those who have reservations. Our ushers will then escort you to your seats. 
  • Click the button below to reserve your seats.
SANITIZING
We will be sanitizing the worship center, lobby and bathrooms before and between services. Hand sanitizer stations will also be available.

MASKS
We strongly urge everyone to wear masks on the way to your seat and as you exit your seat, in a spirit of consideration toward each other. Our church staff and volunteers will all be wearing masks unless they are on the stage. During congregational singing, we also recommend wearing masks. We will have our windows open during the service.

RISKS
If you are feeling ill or, if you consider yourself to be in a high-risk category, please stay home and enjoy our 9:00 am live stream worship service.

CHILDREN
We will not be having a separate Kids Ministry for the time being, so parents who choose to come with children will sit together as a family.

CONNECTION & OFFERING
We will not be handing out bulletins, but ask everyone to fill out a connection card on our app. We also will not be passing an offering basket. Offering boxes will be available as well as online giving.

COFFEE
Feel free to bring your own coffee, as it will not be provided at this time.

FELLOWSHIP
We ask that everyone exit the worship center and lobby immediately after each service to allow us to clean and sanitize. However, if you would like to fellowship after the service, you may do so on the church patio. Again, we ask everyone to abide by 6 foot social distancing on the patio, and to abstain from handshakes and hugs. We know this will be hard for some of us, but we want to err on the side of caution.
                                                                                                           
BATHROOMS
Bathrooms will be available for urgent needs only and sanitized after each use.
