Phased Reopening PlanSaturday, May 9, 2020 Hello church family and community! We have the long-awaited plan on our gradual reopening looking forward and we are excited! So here goes... VIEW REOPENING PLAN What We Know Right Now The Nampa School District has determined they will not open schools for rentals through the month of May Governor Little has given churches the freedom to meet as long as they adhere to strict social distancing guidelines. The Involve Training Center has been a great facility to stream from, but as of May 17th, El Tesoro (a Spanish-speaking church plant) will resume services and we want to be supportive of their ministry and the people they are reaching out to. We realize that once we start meeting again publicly for worship we will still need to stream our services to people who are not comfortable meeting at this time. Outside services, and alternate locations. For the Month of MayHere’s what we have decided for the month of May...capitalize on our strengths. We’re doing well with streaming at this time and we love Life Groups. So we’re going to combine the two. Personally, I’m really excited about this. Groups. Saturday morning we will record the service and then play it live on Sunday morning at 10:30am. We will still have Involve Kids at 9:30am. We are asking our Life Groups to meet for worship together. Each group will work to provide adequate spacing and sanitation. We are also working on adding some host homes so we can make our groups a little smaller...If you’re interested in hosting please let us know. If you are currently in a group, check with you Life Group leader to see what the plan is for your group. If you are not currently in a group, you can check our groups page on Monday, May 11th for an updated list of Life Group locations open to more people. We highly recommend you check this option out. Saturday Mornings. We will be opening the Involve Training Center on Saturday mornings for the recording. We need people to sign up in advance on our COVID-19 page. Space is limited to about 30 people so once the ITC is full, we will have to close signups. Worship from Home. If you’re not able to make it to a worship gathering with your Life Group you can still stream the service to your home at 10:30am on Sunday morning. We are looking forward to once again worshiping together under one roof, but until we do, this is the best way for Involve Church to proceed...and to be honest I’m excited to see what God with it. Some of you may have neighbors, friend, or family members that would come to your house to worship together...Wouldn’t it be awesome if God saved someone with worship gathering at home? He can, He’s still working. So do what you can to live for Him in front of other and we’ll leave the results up to God.
