Our Phase One Reopening
At Epic Church International, we are excited to see our church family in person once again! Church will look a little different for a little while, but we are coming home!
We want you to rest assured that we are doing our level best, taking every step of precaution as prescribed by the CDC to provide a safe, secure, and spacious experience for you and your family. For instance, families will be seated 6-feet apart from one another in the sanctuary, and our youth and children’s ministry will also maintain social distancing. We have installed commercial grade hand sanitizer dispensers in the sanctuary, and continue to have hand sanitizer, as we always have, in each of our children’s ministry locations. We are disinfecting every room people will occupy, including the sanctuary pews, between each service, as well as wiping down all door knobs and push bars. Additionally, we have upgraded our HVAC system with the highest grade 4-ply antimicrobial filters.
OUR PHASE ONE SERVICE SCHEDULE
During our phase one reopening, our service schedule will be as follows:
· Sunday 9 & 11am (youth & children’s ministry provided for 3 year-olds and up – see below)
· Sunday 1pm (online only at www.epicchurchintl.org/live-service & on Facebook Live)
· Thursday 6 & 7:15pm (online only)
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Here are the essential items you’ll need to know before attending:
1. In accordance with guidelines from the CDC, and since loving our neighbor includes being considerate of one another’s physical well-being, we require everyone over 12 years of age wear a cloth face covering or mask. Our staff and volunteers will have face coverings and gloves to help provide a safe atmosphere.
2. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your selected service’s start time. Our team will be in place, ready to guide you through a contactless experience, from your car, through children’s ministry registration and drop off (if applicable), to your seat in the sanctuary. At all times we will assist you in maintaining a 6-foot safe distance.
3. Youth & Children’s Ministry will be provided at the Sunday 9 & 11am services as follows:
· Epic Youth (teens) will meet in a socially-distanced format in the Overflow room on the second floor
· 3 – 4 year-olds will meet in the 3 year-old room (registration in the east entrance lobby)
· Kindergarten will meet in the pre-K/Kinder room (registration in the east entrance lobby)
· 1st-5th grade will meet in the gym (registration at the gym entrance)
· During phase one, we are not able to provide children’s ministry for 2 year-olds and younger. They may accompany you into the sanctuary.
4. We strongly encourage all those over the age of 65 who have compromised immune systems, or anyone who has had the following symptoms over the last week, to please join us online at 1pm on Sundays and 6 or 7:15pm on Thursdays at www.epicchurchintl.org/live-service or on Facebook Live:
