An essential purpose of the church is to gather together. Being together enhances our worshipping, learning, praying for each other, and encouraging one another. For the last several weeks, we have been working diligently and seeking counsel on the best in-person service approach for Champions. Our goal is a safe and meaningful in-person attendance strategy that will honor the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing and best health and safety practices.



  • To ensure safety precautions are followed our Dream Team (staff, ushers, greeters, etc.) will be wearing masks as they assist you.

  • Doors will be held open to minimize touching surfaces
  • We will not be passing the giving buckets. Instead, we will have giving boxes available in the lobby and at each entrace to the auditorium. Other resources can be accessed digitally (sermon notes, connect card, giving online, etc.)

  • Children’s and Student Ministry will not be available during this time, until further notice

  • Seats will be sanitized before and after all services

  • Hand sanitizer will be available in the lobby and throughout the building


  • Bring and wear your own mask
  • Sanitize your hands at our sanitation stations at entrances

  • Keep physical distance from other attendees (6 feet); don’t gather in groups before or after the service; please wave and say hello from a distance
  • Do not attend if you’ve had any symptoms of any illness within the past 14 days


While we’d love to see everyone in-person, we know there are limitations that may prevent some from attending. If you find yourself in one of the following categories, please consider continuing to worship online:

  • You are over the age of 65
  • You are at risk or have a compromised immune system
  • You are sick or have been around anyone that has been sick in the last 14 days
  • You have small children who find it difficult to stay in a seat through a service
  • You are pregnant
  • You are more comfortable worshiping at home

Whether or not you are able to return to in-person services right now, the most important thing is that we stay spiritually and relationally connected as a church – in person or online!


What are the safety precautions for coming to church and why should I follow them, especially if I’m healthy?

The best way to demonstrate the love and grace of Jesus is to serve one another in love and consider others’ needs and preferences more than our own. To consider others, we request you to:

  • Wash your hands often/thoroughly; wear a mask throughout your in-person experience
  • Practice social distancing (6 feet) with people outside of your household (even if you see others who are not doing so!)
  • Stay home if you (or anyone in your household) are showing any symptoms of illness
  • Offer lots of grace as you encounter any challenges; we’re all in this together and doing things we’ve never done before

What is provided for families with kids at this time?

We are not offering on-site children’s ministry yet. However, we will continue to provide online lessons and interactive videos for Champions Kids.

If your child can sit through a 65-minute service, consider bringing a tablet or mobile device only if you have a pair of headphones. During the service your child can visit Champions at Home to access the week’s Champions Kids lesson video.

What is the next phase/tier of ministry going to look like?

There are many factors to be considered as we carefully think about next steps. We are committed to being informed, being patient, and moving at the speed that is best for our church.

Stay tuned for more updates as we carefully monitor the health trends in our community. We will continue to provide updates on our website, through email, social media, and weekend announcements.
