We are committed to doing whatever we can to help meet both your practical and spiritual needs. As needs or prayer requests come up, we’d love to help you. Even something as simple as delivering groceries to your door, we'd love to help! Use the forms below to submit a request and a deacon or elder will followup with you.
It is our desire at Renovation Church to create a safe environment for all that attend. Below you will find all the policies and procedures we will be implementing for our current stage of reopening our weekly worship gatherings in line with federal, state, and local government guidelines and mandates. You will also find below resources we are providing digitally so that even if you do not feel comfortable being in person you can still stay connected.
Current Reopening Stage | Stage 2 -- One In-Person Service
With the public gathering size being increased to 50% capacity, we are able to move to one service at 10am. We will continue to livestream the service on Facebook live. All RENOkids classes as well as other church programs will remain inactive. Missional Communities will shift to an in-person + virtual format. See below for information on all of the policies and procedures in place in this stage.
- No more than 50 people in the building at any time. This includes children & infants, but does not include staff & volunteers according to local officials.
- Social distancing must be practiced at all times. Avoid handshakes, hugs, and any other physical contact with others.
- Med checks for all staff and volunteers with touchless thermometer. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will be asked to go home.
- Anyone showing symptoms or feeling sick in any way is asked to stay home. Use the Symptoms of Coronavirus page on the CDC website to determine your wellness.
- Anyone that lives in or is in contact with those that are vulnerable should consider that before attending. Caring for those that you care for may require you to remain home for their good.
- Masks must be worn for all individuals 3yrs and older. If you do not have a mask, or forget one, one will be provided for you. This pertains to inside the building as well as on church grounds.
- No childcare or RENOkids ministry classes. Kids are required to sit with their parents/family and must be under their direct supervision at all times.
- Nursing Mothers Room will remain open. Use of the nursery and other kids classrooms is prohibited.
- Only Sunday morning gatherings will be scheduled in the building. All other programs that occur at church (ie. ManUp, Ladies Bible Study, etc.) will continue to be suspended.
- Missional Communities will move from virtual only to in-person + virtual. We encourage MC’s to begin meeting in person while also maintaining the virtual option. In person participants should keep in step with all policies & procedures for a Sunday morning gathering in this stage (ie. masks, social distancing when able, no snacks/drinks, etc.)
- All surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected prior to and following all services. This includes, but is not limited to, doorways/knobs/handles, bathrooms, sanctuary [including chairs], and foyer area.
- A signup form will go out at noon the Thursday prior to the upcoming Sunday. Please sign you and/or your family up to attend one of the two services by that Saturday at noon so our team can make preparations.
- There will be limited space for each service. Once one service is filled up it will no longer be available to sign up for.
- Please include all members of your family that will need a seat, as well as those that may not (infants, children that will sit on your lap, etc.) as we need to account for each person attending.
- Doors will open 15min prior to each service. Please limit “gathering” for fellowship to outdoors, with masks on, practicing social distancing at all times.
- Seating arrangements will accommodate physical distancing regulations. Once you enter the building, please come into the sanctuary and find the section of chairs with the number you need for your family. Chairs will be set up with your family in mind with exactly the number of chairs you’ll need based on your sign up form spaced apart from other groupings.
- Following the 9am service, we will need the parking spots cleared by 10:20am to make room for those coming to the 11am service.
- Downstairs areas will be off limits, with the exception of the nursing mothers room, in order to minimize the time it takes to clean as well as ration cleaning supplies.
- 6 Hand sanitizer stations will be available in various places in the foyer as well as the sanctuary. Please use them.
- Keeping in line with CDC guidelines, please wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap after using the bathroom. Bathrooms will be cleaned/disinfected after each use during services.
- Greeters will open doors for others to limit the number of people touching those surfaces.
- No coffee or snacks will be served at any service.
- Music team will be limited.
- Those speaking or leading music from the stage will not be wearing a mask. Chairs will be positioned in the sanctuary to safely accomplish this.
- We will not be taking communion.
- A contribution box will be on the wall in the back of the sanctuary for those that prefer that form of giving over giving online. Feel free to put your offering in the box on your way in or as you exit following service.
While we are currently able to meet in person for our Sunday services, we know that many are not comfortable yet or are part of those especially vulnerable to significant illness. With that, we plan to livestream our services indefinitely. While this is not a replacement for the gathering of the local church, it can also encourage us that we can still communicate the Word of God as the people of God. Join us at 10 am as we sing, pray and study the Word of God together.Click here to view our live stream
Be on the lookout for an email, as well as a post on our Facebook Page [same thing, different format] for a blog post that will bring Biblical and theological truths about God, the church, and our undying hope in Christ in order to encourage our distress and lift our thoughts to heaven.Check out our blog
In-Person + Virtual Missional Communities
One of the biggest ways you can connect with others at Renovation Church is through Missional Communities (MCs). With current state guidelines, we are able to gather in-person for these weekly gatherings. We realize that not every family will feel comfortable doing that, so each MC will provide a virtual option through Zoom so they can attend as well. We want to invite you to join one of these MCs because it is important to stay connected and care for one another during this time. These are a crucial part of the life of the church at Renovation Church and we encourage you to join one. Use the button above to sign up to let the MC leaders know of your attendance. If you're using the virtual option, the leader of your specific MC will email you a link to join.Click here to sign up
"Reno Partners" Podcast
Our elders will be chatting with our church partners once a month in order to hear about their life, ministry and the gospel. These will be posted on our YouTube channel at the beginning of every month and will also be emailed to you in our monthly resource, The Loop.Click here to view our live stream
Here are some ways you can get involved and serve during this time of social distancing.
Read & Pray
There is a lot we can’t do right now. It can be frustrating for those who love to produce and accomplish. Yet, with your calendars empty, we can take extra time to hear from God in His Word and through prayer.
Serve & Connect
People are facing needs from multiple directions. May your eyes be attentive to the needs of others. Ask the LORD for wisdom as to WHO and HOW you can tangibly bless others. There is an opportunity for us to be a reassuring voice over the phone. Be sure to set aside some time during the week to make some phone calls to others at church and your neighbors. You can also use the neighbor card below to give to your neighbors to see how you can serve them.Download neighbor serve card
Give to Benevolence
As you know, the economic impact on this has been massive. What an opportunity to display your love of others in helping meet their needs. We have a Benevolence Fund that we encourage you to give in order to help come alongside your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and needs that arise within our larger community. You can give by using the link below or by sending a check to the church.Click here to give
