We are so excited to announce the re-opening of Res Life Kids on Sunday, August 2, 2020!
Although things may look a bit different, our procedures will change and we will reopen with a portion of our classes for the time being, we couldn’t be more excited to once again spend time with your kids and sharing about God’s incredible love!
We’re going to kick things off with a “SUMMER FUN EXTRAVAGANZA” that will be mainly held outside. However, children will need to be checked in and brought to their classrooms. Teachers will take them outside at the appropriate time.
During our extravaganza, we will have several water fun activities, like sprinklers and a duck pond with prizes, along with playtime at the playground. Please be sure to dress your children appropriately for outside play and water activities (bathing suits, watershoes) and to bring a towel and a change of clothes for after class. In addition, be sure to apply your child’s sunscreen before coming into class.Teachers will not be able to change wet bathing suits or apply sunscreen. We will stay outside for as long as possible to ensure the children are reasonably dry before entering the air-conditioned building.
We can’t wait to see you and your children!! We have many fun activities planned for our Sunday classes and are ready to continue sowing God’s word and His love into His most precious gifts!
As far as our regular Sunday morning classes, in order to comply with state guidelines, we have made some changes to several parts of our program. Please be sure to read each section carefully.
These groupings will remain as follows until further notice.
Our check-in procedure will consist of a few new steps in order to maintain social distance and provide a brief health screening.
Your cooperation and partnership is greatly appreciated during this time of transition. Once again, we are so blessed to be able to serve you and your children in Res Life Kids! God has amazing victories in store for all of us as we stay close to Him!!
As we enter Phase 4 in the Western New York, we continue to begin the process of regathering in person with reduced, but recently increased capacity.
We are gathering together for weekly Sunday morning services at 10:00 AM. We continue to adhere to several protocols to ensure the safety of all of our guests, volunteers and staff. Here is a summary of those protocols:
We realize there are some among us who have compromised health issues or immune systems. Those individuals should feel free to remain home and watch our live service stream until such time as they feel comfortable enough to return. Your safety is our utmost concern.
We further recognize that some of our families with children may also decide to rejoin us once ResLife Kids is back up and running. Again, we understand,respect and support that decision and look forward to sharing our online experience with you, as well. Those reopening plans continue to be made and we will contact you with that information as soon as it’s available.
Additionally, Home Groups will continue to meet for those those who may feel more comfortable in a smaller group setting.
**Regarding capacity limitations – We are fortunate enough to have ample space within our Main Auditorium and have made appropriate adjustments to the seating in order for us to both remain in compliance with the mandated capacity limitations while being able to seat our anticipated gathering size, based on recent and historical attendance information. Additionally, we have two separate overflow areas set up should they be required. In the rare event we were to max out all prepared seating, we would unfortunately need to stop additional people from entering the building**.
To our church family, we love you and we love impacting our community with the love of God along with you. Thank you for your unwavering support over these last several months. We can’t wait to see you again and to continue on this journey along with you and God’s grace. God bless you!
