Hello Without Walls FamilyWe have been praying for you and believing that God’s abundant grace is empowering you in this crazy season we have been navigating through.But we wanted to give you some GREAT NEWS!!! If you haven’t heard already we will be opening back up for live, physical gatherings on Sunday, May 31st at 10 am. By that time it will have been 2 1/2 months since we’ve been able to join together and we can’t wait to see our church family and let our praises fill the building.It’s very important that you know that there will be some adjustments in our gathering as we will be taking steps to assure your safety by following some basic guidelines passed down from Governor Ducey’s office. For example, our buildings and meeting areas will be thoroughly disinfected the week prior to that Sunday. In the auditorium every other row will be blocked off and we will have separation of seats between families. Our first impressions team will wear masks and open doors to limit touching of common surface areas.We will be taking extra precautions in our Children’s area. There will not be a mass gathering of children in the chapel area but there will be separation of kids by age in separate rooms. All children’s workers will wear masks and make sure that social distancing is practiced in each room. All check-ins of children will be done by the first impressions team so as to limit touching of surfaces and streamline the process. All of these precautions will be implemented in our nursery as well. We understand that there may be some parents who might want their infant children to remain with them. But our intent and focus is to make our environment as safe as possible so you can attend with assurance and confidence and feel relaxed in your worship experience. We strongly encourage all parents with children to arrive at least 15-20 minutes prior to service start time for child check-in. This will help in giving our children’s workers adequate time to handle the dynamics of that first Sunday back. It will also help to eliminate congestion at the start of service time.We fully realize that everyone can have differing opinions on this whole pandemic issue and what’s real or not real. But our desire is to reach everyone from all walks of life and levels of faith and belief and steer them to our God who is the answer to their struggles and fears. Like the Apostle Paul basically said in 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, “I will become and do whatever I need to, if by all means I might win some.” Our desire is to do whatever is necessary to win souls to Christ. So thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility.And lastly, because we have never experienced anything like this before, because of the large size of our auditorium we felt it was wisdom to open with one service to get a gauge on where things are at. We know that some people won’t respond in getting back out into public gatherings as quickly as others, but we want you to know that our volunteer teams will be fully prepared to move to a 2nd service the following week if necessary. We will still continue to broadcast our service on Facebook, Youtube, and livestream at withoutwalls.tv for those who feel more comfortable staying home at this time.Below is a basic set of guidelines that we will ask everyone to understand and follow for our Sunday gatherings.
