COVID-19 Reopening Plan (11/17/20) – REGENERATE CHURCH
Hey Regenerate Church,
Pastor Brenen here with a very important announcement! Due to the recent Covid-19 lockdown measures in Orange County (moving into the “purple tier”) Golden West College made the decision to require Regenerate to move our services outside for the time being.
So, beginning this Sunday for our Praisegiving service, we are launching “Winter Worship at Regenerate Church” which will be outdoor services a lot like we did for our “Summer Sundays”. We will have Coffee and Hot Cocoa along with donuts served at “Refresh”. This Sunday is going to be an epic worship service outdoors on a beautiful 73-degree sunny day. The entire service is dedicated to worship with a few short teachings in between, along with a few special surprises. I know this Sunday will prepare us to have the best Thanksgiving yet!
We are also planning on moving forward with reopening “Rkids Church” next Sunday, November 29th outdoors in a safe and secured area. And on the first Sunday back, Rkids will be hosting a special Big Screen showing of a great movie with an important biblical lesson (Ages 3+). The Rkids nursery will not be re-opening at this time, but families with infants and toddlers are invited to join us for our outdoor services with your littles.
Both our main services and our Rkids church will be following all the safety and sanitary protocols set forth to make sure you and your family can come to church in a healthy environment.
I know, just like our Summer Sundays, these will be special memorable services each with a special experience. Whether we meet indoors or outdoors, I hope that we understand the importance of gathering together as THE CHURCH. I know whatever plan Satan has to stop the church is only going to backfire, because the bible declares that “God will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” Our church grew and thrived greatly during our “Summer Sundays” and I believe God wants to do more with his Church outside! So, join with me this Sunday and every Sunday following as we stand in defiance to the devil and in obedience to God as we gather to worship Jesus.
This is going to be a blast!
– Pastor Brenen
Note: We will still be implementing all COVID guidelines listed below. Please bring your chair, blanket, coffee and Bible for our outdoor Winter Worship Series!
