ONLINE OR IN-PERSON | Wednesdays on Zoom Only at 7am & 7pm // In Person Gathering Sundays 10:30 am

Congregational Update | May 28, 2020 4:00 pm

Dear New Song family,
We hope you have been enjoying and engaging in our online services during the COVID-19 shutdown. As the state begins to slowly re-open, we have been prayerfully considering when and in what form our services should begin again at our Cleveland Heights campus. I want to thank those of you who filled out the Re-Engaging Church online survey. Your feedback and prayer have helped inform the decision to resume services at our Cleveland Heights campus on Sunday, June 21st! For the safety and comfort of all of our family members, we will be offering three worship service options, each lasting about one hour:

Online Service: We will continue to stream service live on Facebook and YouTube from 11 am-12:00 pm to support our most vulnerable individuals and those who are enjoying the flexibility and freedom of online worship services.

Drive-in Service: For those who would like a little more of the feeling of corporate worship and to wave at friends, we will have a service in the parking lot at 9 am. You can safely remain in your car, and still enjoy live worship and a message over your car’s radio on station 89.3 FM , *weather permitting.* Please check for weather updates before you leave your house.
To help us prepare for the number of cars to expect at the Drive-in Service, please CLICK HERE to get 1 free ticket to the Drive-in Service for ever car attending.

In-person Service: The 11 am-12:00 pm service will be in the sanctuary with extended worship and a shorter message for those who miss the in-person corporate worship experience.  Social distancing and mask wear are requested for this service as an act of love for your fellow New Song family members. All volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves, and hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building. Offerings are requested to be given either online or placed in in the giving stations with the provided offering envelopes as you enter or exit the sanctuary.

Kidsong Church: (11 am service only.) Kids church will be provided for nursery through elementary (3 months- 5th grade) children on a first come, first serve basis, as there are limits to the number of children that can be safely served in our spaces. We recommend you arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the service to check your child/children in for Kidsong church. Per the latest CDC guidelines, children are not required to wear masks; however our Kidsong volunteers will do their best to keep the children socially distanced while under their care. All Kidsong adult volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves for everyone’s safety. All Kidsong rooms will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between uses.
We will continue to keep our building to the highest standards of cleanliness, and continue to monitor and follow all CDC guidelines for churches regarding the COVID-19 virus.

Please join in our 21 days of fasting and prayer which begins May 31st and will continue until the re-opening of the church building on June 21st.

Lastly, you are invited to engage in whatever worship service you feel most comfortable. We want to stress that this decision is not a matter of your level of faith. We encourage everyone aged 60 and over to cautiously and prayerfully decide whether to attend the 11:00 am in-person worship service as we know that this is the most vulnerable demographic of our church family.

Love and blessings,
Pr. Klen and Audrey Kuruvilla
