Don't do church alone.
You now have the new option to Livestream Together at the church in-person.
8:30, 10:00, & 11:30 am
Livestream Together will be held indoors in the Worship Center. No reservations needed!
Livestream Together at the church: The worship music and sermon will be pre-recorded, but there will be a live host, live prayer, and live announcements. Also, everyone attending in-person will be worshiping together, which is a powerful time.
Livestream Together from home: We will continue to post the full service online that you can access on our website or YouTube. If you need to continue worshipping online, we are encouraging you to get together with others safely to Livestream Together at a home, so you can be the church together.
Serving opportunities include:

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you participate in Livestream Together?
There are several ways to participate in Livestream Together and the important piece is that it is TOGETHER! You can attend inside the Worship Center or you can simply worship at home with some family and friends.
What will Livestream Together at the church look like?
When you arrive and park, you will be welcomed inside beginning 15 minutes prior to the service start time. From there you will go straight to your seat, as all the common areas will be closed off.
Masks must be worn at all times, including once you are in your seats. Bulletin QR codes will be posted throughout the building to access the digital bulletins. We will also have a New Guest QR code posted to access our Connect Form. During service, a live host will provide announcements and allow for an opportunity to give your offering. Your offering can be given online or dropped in the boxes near the exits on your way out. All attendees will promptly exit to the parking lot.
When will Livestream Together take place?
Livestream Together will happen at our regular service times, 8:30, 10:00 & 11:30 am. We also encourage you to safely Livestream Together at home with family and friends.
Who can attend in-person?
Anyone who feels comfortable doing so. Everyone is welcome!
Is this a live service?
The worship music and sermon will be pre-recorded, but there will be a live host, live prayer, and live announcements. Also, everyone attending in-person will be worshiping together, which is a powerful time.
Will other parts of the church be open?
Unfortunately, there will not be any other part of the church building that is open. All common spaces, including the café, will be closed. Bathrooms will remain open and available.
What if I can’t or don’t feel comfortable meeting in-person?
We know that coming together in-person will not work for everyone. For that reason, we will still be posting a full service online that you can watch on our website or YouTube. It will be the same content being shown in-person. If it is an appropriate option for you, we encourage people to Livestream Together with other individuals, whether that be family, friends, or a few neighbors.
Is there anywhere to receive prayer on Sundays?
Our Prayer Team will be available and happy to pray for you. After each service, our Prayer Team is available in the Next Steps Room for anyone who wants prayer. You can reach out to them anytime throughout the week as well at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the plan to keep people safe during Livestream Together?
Safety is very important to us! Safety guidelines will still be followed through social distancing, wearing masks (covering nose and mouth), and cleaning procedures. Masks will be required the entire time, and there will be adequate spacing between each group. Hand sanitizer will be available, but we ask that you refrain from hugs, handshakes, or any physical touch at this time. Our cleaning team will be sanitizing all the public areas in-between each service, including the Worship Center seats.
Why aren’t we having live services?
We believe doing Livestream Together gives options to people who want to watch at home, watch with their Backyard Church, or worship in the church building. This allows the most people possible to have the best church experience simultaneously. We know this isn’t going to be the perfect option for everyone, but we want to build on the success of Backyard Church by allowing them or other smaller groups to continue worshipping together, while also providing a place for others to come together as well. We believe that doing church together is important, and this option allows for the least interruption if staff or volunteers get sick. We are taking the safety of our congregation and staff seriously, and need to factor in the possibility of last-minute changes. As we said, this may not be the perfect option for everyone, but we want to do church together, and believe this will accomplish that goal.
