We’re gathering on-site or online
We’re having on-site services. We’re practicing physical distancing. We are asking you to wear masks while at service. Services are family style for elementary aged kids and up at this point. We do have Ekids available for birth – K. *updated November 4, 2020
*ONLINE SERVICE: We have ONLINE streaming of our service at 5pm on Sundays. You can access this page by going to our website home page and clicking the WATCH button. You can also access the live feed via our YouTube channel HERE.
*Recordings of our entire service will be available again on our website, app and social media outlets within the next couple days, usually by Tuesday evening.
NOTE: if you are feeling sick or have been recently, please participate in our ONLINE service from home.
*If you choose to attend one of our on-site services, you are responsible for your own health and accept the risk of being exposed to any number of illnesses. If you have any concerns about your health or risk, please attend our online service from home.
We know some are ready to gather again and some might be a bit more in a ‘wait and see’ approach. Either way you feel, we want to make Elements City Church available to YOU. We love you, friends! Invite folks to join you for church, Sundays on-site or online!
What to expect:
Doors open for service, approximately 15 minutes before service time.
As of late June, 2020 – city officials are now requiring masks as folks are out. We are practicing physical distancing even inside and though we are not going to ‘police’ the wearing of masks – we are asking that you wear them as a way of ‘loving your neighbor’. We will have a limited number of disposable masks in the lobby. We are NOT taking temperatures of people attending, please don’t attend if you’re NOT feeling well, join us online.
Please allow our greeters to open all doors for you (with the exception of restroom doors). When you enter the building, promptly enter the worship center and find an available seat. Seats are marked off to encourage physical distancing. There will be hand sanitizer available throughout the Worship Center.
*NOTE: we may not have a lot water in the cooler at this point, so feel free to bring a drink with you as you attend.
We encourage everyone to give using one of our online options (app or website). If you wish to give by check, we do have giving boxes located toward the back of the worship center or you can mail it to the church.
We encourage you and your family to freely worship but to remain in your area and practice good social distancing conduct. The worship center and all common areas will be sanitized before each worship experience.
Our Ekids program is open currently for baby – Kindergarten children. Families with older kids are invited to attend service together. We’re working toward opening our 1st – 5th grade classes in the near future.
Interaction with others
Please practice safe social distancing. Please refrain from using handshakes or giving hugs. Let’s save our hugs for home. Instead, wave, smile, or say hello! If you do hug, please ask the other person first. Although you may feel comfortable shaking hands, some people may not, so please help us make everyone feel comfortable and safe.
We do have 2 restrooms in the Worship Center that will be cleaned and disinfected before service. There will be hand soap available to wash hands. Remember: wash your hands well for at least 20 seconds :) *sing Jesus Loves Me or Bear Down Arizona to help :)
At this time we’re not having communion in our service. We do encourage you to take communion at home if you would like as a person, couple, a family. Similar to what we did when service was online only. You could read 1 Corinthians 11:23-25 and take a moment of prayer as you ‘do this in remembrance’ of Jesus.
