SouthGate's Live Worship Service Info
We are super excited to be meeting together as a church family again!!! After praying, seeking godly counsel, and considering state and CDC recommendations, we have decided to resume on campus services in two phases.
Throughout this transition period we will continue to monitor current CDC and government guidelines and we will base our policy decisions on their recommendations.
In Phase 1 of our return to on campus services, attendance will be restricted to adults and 7th through 12th grade students. Per recommendations, there will be no children’s services during Phase 1. We encourage our congregation with younger children or those who are at a higher risk of infection to continue to watch our services online through facebook or youtube.
Due to physical distancing requirements, we are limiting seating in the sanctuary. In order to manage this, and ensure that we maintain the safest possible environment for people to meet in, we are asking those who would like to attend to reserve their seats online for either our 8:30 or 10:30 services through our Churchteams Software. To reserve your seats for next Sunday please use the links listed here:
10:30 service: https://churchteams.com/m/Register.asp?a=Ylc4OEFaQ0xGVTQ9
*As noted above, there is limited seating for each service and once that number of reservations have been made, admission for that service will be closed so please reserve your seats as early as possible.
*If you do not have the technology required to reserve your own seats but you'd like to attend a service, please contact the church office (602-243-1900) and we will reserve tickets for you.
Please do not attend service if you are showing symptoms of an illness or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID 19 in the past 14 days.
As much as possible we ask that people observe current physical distancing norms while at church. Hand sanitizer stations will be set up and we will have people assigned specifically to sanitize high touch and traffic areas on a regular basis.
If you desire to wear a mask while attending service please feel free to do so.
Phase 2 (Date to be determined)
- Return to regular services complete with children’s ministry
- Full seating in sanctuary
- Hand sanitizer stations will remain in place
- A list of common sense health practices will be mailed out to our congregation with an encouragement to follow those practices.
These are challenging times. We look forward to getting back to “church as usual” as quickly as possible. But for now, we need to be patient and do everything we can to make your attendance at church as safe, healthy, and enjoyable as possible.
Thank you so much for your understanding and cooperation and God bless you!
