🚨🚨 IMPORTANT CHANGE 🚨🚨
🚨 ONE SERVICE SUNDAY @ 10:00AM 🚨
🟢 Outdoor if weather permits
🟢 Indoor if not
🟢 Social distancing still, regardless
🟢 RSVPs no longer required
🟢 Overflow rooms indoors if needed
We want the highest possible chance of holding outdoor services, and we want the best possible experience indoors if we are forced inside by weather.
• OUTDOORS •
You know how we do, it’s awesome
• INDOORS •
The gym will be set up with our chairs, but every other row. It’s more comfortable, just as safe, and helps the sound tremendously.
As people become more comfortable coming back, our numbers will grow. If we hit capacity in the gym, we have the Fellowship Hall and the cafeteria both set up as well to watch. First come first serve.
We’ll be communicating this message, as well as the decision indoor/outdoor Sunday, on all channels. It’s a blessing to be with you all!
Horizon’s Coronavirus safety steps
We are taking extra measures for cleaning, sanitizing, and ensuring distancing. This will include:
- Hand sanitizing stations
- Adequate spacing between families and individuals to ensure the proper health safeguards
- If we are inside for two services, all furniture items including bathrooms and other rooms will be well-cleaned before and after the services.
The wearing of masks will be strongly encouraged. There will be a table with masks available for anyone that may need or desire one. However, we have a limited amount! If you have your own, you are encouraged to bring it.
Concerning seating outdoors: please bring your own chairs. We will also have some available. (You are welcome to bring your own chairs for indoor services also.)
There will be a table with prepackaged communion elements. Please pick up enough communion packs for everyone in your group. These packets have been touched only by a person wearing gloves.
PARENTS WITH CHILDREN
Whether inside or outside, there will not be any Children’s Ministry. We will announce the Sunday when that’s able to change.
IF OUTSIDE: The playground will not be open for use. Please keep children with you at all times. We wish it was different, but this service is not like our normal outdoor services – not yet.
IF INSIDE: Parents can make use of the cafeteria if little ones need to be taken out.
TO THE SYMPTOMATIC
We ask that you continue to enjoy the services from home. They will continue to be livestreamed in high quality as usual.
TO THE AT-RISK
Those 65 and older or who are more at-risk because of health concerns, you are welcome to come as you feel led, but some of you may feel more comfortable and safer watching the livestream from home.
Parking will be in the normal parking lot on the north side of the church building.
IF OUTSIDE: The service will be on the opposite side of the building next to the playground; please proceed around the building. Rides will be available to the service area for those who may desire that.
IF INSIDE: In the normal sanctuary. If we don’t have enough room to fit everyone within the guidelines, the Fellowship Hall and cafeteria are set up as overflow rooms. First come, first serve!
Note that drinking fountains will not be operational.
IF OUTSIDE: Please enter the building through the back entrance up the short steps all the way to the left as you are looking at the stage.Proceed down the hallway and you will find the bathrooms on the right-hand side. We will also have signs.
IF INSIDE: The normal bathrooms in the church lobby will be available.
At the close of the service/services we will be dismissing everyone to enjoy the day that the Lord has for them.
IF OUTDOORS: If you haven’t yet, please download our app! You will be able to find the lyrics to the worship songs for that day in the app on the home screen.
As I have mentioned before:
- There are two sides to this situation. One side will feel comfortable in coming to the services, while the other side will feel more comfortable remaining at home. Again, we encourage everyone to do as they feel led. We desire that no person will feel picked on for whatever choice that they make. Unity within the believers is something that we have always striven for, and during this present situation it is vital that we do everything we personally can to maintain that unity.
- We carry a strong desire for the safety of everyone at Horizon, but we do believe that it is time to take the proper steps to resume corporate worship.
Also, as I said earlier, it has been a long road in many ways, and we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but we still have a long way to go. Our desire is to follow the Lord on that road as well as we can so that He can be glorified in our midst. Thank you for your support during all of this. Again, you guys are an amazing group of people.
As I close this letter, please let me know if we can do anything to help you in any way.
- As the Lord said to Joshua: “Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go” (Joshua 1:7).
God bless you all. Love you
Open 9am – 4pm! Visit or call. Masks encouraged.
One thing we have learned through this time of quarantine is that communication is important! In order to communicate well we need to make sure will have all the correct information for those who call Horizon Indy home. This will help for the new children's checkin...
