Reopen Strategy

Hope Christian Church will no longer reopen this Sunday July 12th. All services will continue online until further notice. 

 

Please review the information below in preparation for your visit. 

At HCC, our heart's desire is to provide a worship environment that is safe for your physical and spiritual health. We have taken careful steps to be ready for you. 

  • Please expect to be greeted by our ministry in the parking lot for a wellness check. No one with a temperature of 100.3 or higher will be permitted to enter the facility.
  • Plan to arrive early to give yourself time to enter. First come, first seated.
  • Once the facility capacity has been reached, you will be welcomed to worship with us from your vehicle. If you have a need to leave the facility for any reason during the worship service, you will not be permitted to return.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I wear a mask?

  • All who enter the facility must wear a mask/face covering. No mask; no entry.

Can I sit with my children?

  • Seating will be family style for families and individuals.

Will there be social distancing in the facility?

  • Physical distancing has been pre-arranged; floor markings and adjusted bathroom designations will assist in maintaining distance during your visit.

What do I do if the worship spaces are full when I arrive to church?

  • Once the facility capacity has been reached, you will be welcomed to worship with us from your vehicle.
