With Governor Reynolds’ proclamation lifting gathering restrictions on churches as long as they “implement reasonable measures … to ensure social distancing … increased hygiene practices, and other public health measures”, we began moving toward re-opening regular meetings at Creekside on Sunday, May 17th. If you feel safe doing so, you may attend a simplified Sunday service at Creekside at 10:30. Meeting spaces and seating are arranged to keep with social distancing guidelines, and steps are being taken to sanitize common areas. At least initially, we aren’t offering Sunday school, nursery or refreshments. We’re starting simple with the goal of a gradual return to the meetings and activities we’re used to, Lord willing. Keep in mind that coming to church is completely optional, and many are choosing not to. For those worshiping at home (In fact we’re encouraging those who are at-risk to continue to self-isolate for a while) we are continuing to provide live stream broadcasts of our services. Download this PDF for details on the first phase of our re-opening (or watch this short video for an overview).
