After two months of in-person worship, we're ready for next steps! NO SIGN-UPS NEEDED

Apr 28, 2021

 

After a year plus of worshipping together virtually, Highrock Acton is proud to take the next step in our REGATHERING PLAN, to include the re-launch of Kidsrock! Please read through the plan details below, and then come any Sunday at 10am for in-person worship services and consider signing up to help with many of the new ministry needs that make gatherings possible.

As we emerge from a year of primarily engaging worship at home through a screen, this is a time for us to remember that church is not a product we consume. The point of a worship service is not to serve us, and our comfort and convenience. Rather, the point of the worship service is to serve God with gifts of our worship, our attention, our prayers and praise. The worship gathering of God's people is enabled as we serve God by offering our gifts in ministry. Let's move into this new season with a renewed spirit of serving our good and gracious God!

 

PROTOCOL UPDATE (as of June 21) 

In response to updated CDC and state guidelines, as well as continued high vaccination and low infection rates in our county, we are making the following adjustments to our Sunday morning protocols:

Sign-ups are no longer required for services and we are allowing for more flexibilty with our previous 50% capacity limit.

With this change we are moving from seating in pods to rows that are spaced 3' apart for services. Groups are invited to leave 1-2 seats between them and the next group in order to maintain 3' distance.  

Masks are now optional for fully vaccinated individuals inside church buildings; they are required for unvaccinated individuals. Masks are optional outside for everybody! 

Group singing is allowed (not new, but such good news that it bears repeating!).

Shared celebration of the Lord's Support resumes on July 11!

Post-service conversations are welcome in the building! We will resume serving post-service coffee, tea, and cold drinks on July 11. Folks wearing masks are invited to grab their drink and consume while connecting with others out front.

Our Kidsrock Regathering plan begins July 11! To start, class sizes will be limited and sign-ups required. If all goes as planned, we hope to open Kidsrock to more and more chlidren quickly! Check out the details and SIGN-UP here! You can also email Phyllis at phyllis@highrockacton.org with questions, or to receive Kidsrock communications. Note that to start, Kidsrock will be available for age 0 - grade 5, but in addtion to youth group during the week, we do plan to add monthly Sunday morning gatherings for middle schoolers. Want to help make all this possible? Sign-up below to serve! 

**As always, we regretably ask that you stay home if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:  loss of smell or taste, sore throat, cough, fever, muscle aches, nausea/vomiting/abdominal pain or difficulty breathing. In addition, please stay home if you have been exposed to or tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

One of the best ways to get connected is through serving! Consider supporting regathering through signing up to help with a ministry team.
