*As of July 2nd, Mayor McClean has mandated all residents residing within the Boise City limits wear a mask in public spaces. This includes all indoor spaces and outdoor where you are unable to maintain 6-foot distancing. To learn more and to view exemptions, visit the City of Boise website.
TREASURE VALLEY CHURCH WATCH PARTIES
As we adapt to the changes that Covid-19 brings, we also adapt the way we are participating in worship and fellowship as a church community. We are currently in the process of creating church watch parties throughout the valley in which members of our church community are inviting us into their outside spaces to watch the sermon. All church watch party locations will be posted on our website. We invite you to explore these locations and see if there is one you would like to attend. Each host will have different requirements and RSVP limitations so make sure to check our website for all the details including how you RSVP. We are in a very unique time in history and more than ever, we need to stay connected to each other. Connect with us if you have any questions.
CHURCH WATCH PARTIES AT HILL CITY
We will have a Church Watch Party at Hill City every Sunday at 4pm. We highly recommend you to RSVP as our maximum capacity for the sanctuary will be 50 people. For guidelines and requirements for attending the Hill City Watch Party, please visit our website.
CALL OUT FOR HOSTS FOR CHURCH WATCH PARTIES
We are looking for people who are interested in hosting a Church Watch Party. If that is you, please let us know! We will help provide you with the necessary resources to host as well as provide funds for childcare (if needed). Please consider this great opportunity to bring church to those around you.
Due to the increase of Covid-19 cases, Ada County has moved back to Stage 3. We will no longer be meeting in person at this time. Instead, join us Sundays via our Facebook page or our YouTube channel at 11am.
Beginning July 5th the service will be posted on our FaceBook page Sundays at 9:00 am. (We are no longer using YouTube Premiere, though the sermon will be posted by 9:00am on YouTube.) The sites and details (number of people and safety precautions) for each gathering will be available on Tuesday, June 30th. Check out the Weekly Update that will be sent to your email as well as our website, on and after Tuesday to view the map and locate a site near you. You will be asked to RSVP so that each host will know how many adults and children to expect. We will also use these RSVPs to limit the number of people at each site.
The Collective will be paying for childcare and mobile hotspots for all sites that need it. Our hope is that this will remove as many obstacles as possible which may prevent any individual or family from receiving the fellowship and support they need.
Beginning Sunday, July 5th at 4:00 pm we will host a watch party at Hill City. It will be first come, first served limited to under 50 people for the individuals who may not receive our correspondence, those who have difficulty traveling to any of the other sites, or are new and visiting guests. For all of our watch sites we ask that you remain at home if you are immunocompromised, at risk, or feeling ill.
If you are in a Community Group, we encourage you to join that watch party. If your CG will not be hosting one, feel free to join another open CG or attend the watch party at Hill City. (Open sites will be indicated in the Weekly Update and online, Tuesday.)
We were created with intimacy and fellowship in mind. We need each other. Please reach out to one of these open sites or start a watch part of your own! Let’s be intentional about staying connected.
What to Expect:
Please be prepared to wear a mask the entire time you are in the building. We will have masks available at the door for anyone who does not have one. This is a tangible way that we can love our neighbors, and make sure that we are doing everything we can to keep each other healthy. If you are not willing to wear a mask, we respectfully request that you continue to utilize the online worship services for the next couple of weeks, until they become optional for our in- person gatherings.
We will be blocking off every other row in the sanctuary in order to allow for social distancing. Families can absolutely sit together, but we ask that you leave appropriate distance between yourself, and other people sitting in the same row as you.
Hand sanitizer will be available at stations throughout the building.
We will not have Children or Youth Ministry at this time. We plan to open up Children & Youth Ministries on Sunday, July 12th.
We will not be providing our coffee bar or communion at this time.
If the sanctuary fills up, we will use the large Children's Ministry room for overflow if needed.
The nursery room and a few other Children's Ministry rooms will be available to step into if parents with children need to step out of the sanctuary. They will not be staffed, but will be available. Please be mindful of the rooms while in there.
Before coming to church, please be aware of your own health. If you have a cough, fever, respiratory issues, or any other sign of being sick please stay home. It might not seem like a big deal for you, but a sickness has the potential to be much more harmful to someone else in our congregation.
If you are not yet ready to begin meeting in person, that’s okay! Whether you are more vulnerable to getting sick, elderly or live with someone who is elderly, or just not yet comfortable with gathering in person we absolutely respect your decision. We will continue to offer on-line services via YouTube, and Community Groups are meeting again to provide fellowship and support. Please reach out to us if there is any way we can serve you in this time. Sunday On-line services will debut at 6:00pm every Sunday via our Youtube Channel.
We will continue to monitor the amount of COVID-19 cases being reported in Idaho and should we make any changes to our future plans, we will send out communication right away.
