UPDATE APRIL 2021
Lane county has moved out of the extreme risk category. Our children’s program has begun again on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. We are still offering socially distanced seating areas, and multiple service formats (In-person, Drive-In, and Live Online). We ask that you please wear a mask or face shield in deference to our fellow attenders, and to our governing authorities. Please contact us if you have questions for concerns.
UPDATE DEC. 3, 2020
The State of Oregon has issued new COVID-19 guidelines. Currently, Lane county is in the “extreme risk” category. The new regulations will limit us to 25% of our capacity. This means will be able to accommodate approximately 50 people for indoor, in-person services. We will continue to provide in-person, drive-in, and live online service formats for our 10am Sunday Services.
UPADTE NOV. 18, 2020
The State of Oregon has put a 2 week freeze in place, which limits church gatherings to 25 people. We will still offer In-person, Online, and Drive-In formats during the freeze. We will have a separate overflow area if needed. Once we reach 25 persons in the sanctuary, all others will be able to attend in the overflow area or in their vehicles (Drive-In format). We do ask that everyone wear a face covering while in the building. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time! Please choose the service format you are the most comfortable with.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER, 2020
Lane County is in phase 2 of re-opening, which allows us to meet together as long as we follow the state venues guidelines for COVID-19 . We are planning to be back inside our building on Oct. 4th after doing outdoor services all summer. We are excited to be back together, but we will still offer our Drive-In option for those who would like to listen to the service in their vehicle. We are also live streaming our services each week as well. You can find a copy of our re-opening plan here:
UPDATE May 14, 2020
As we wait for the State of Oregon to open back up after the shut-down, we are beginning to create our plan for when we can re-unite in person as a church. Please watch this update video from Pastor Marcus about services for the next few weeks. It will also give you a basic outline for our plan moving forward. We may not ever go back to ‘normal’, but that is ok! Let’s keep praying and seeking the Lord on how to keep reaching people for Him! Also, please take a moment to fill-out our survey. We want to know how you are feeling about having in-person services again.

UPDATE: March 17th 2020
As of March 16th, Gov. Brown as placed a ban on all gatherings of 25 or more people. Therefore, we will not continue to meet in person on Sundays while the ban is in place. However, this does not mean we will not be worshipping on Sundays. It means church will look different for the next few weeks!
Please watch our update video on the home page for more information on how we as a church will be proceeding. We will be producing a worship and message video each week on our website. We encourage people to continue in bible study, prayer, and giving whether in a small group or individually. Please check back here often for new content. We are also planning a drive-in church service once a month!
As in all things we will continue to trust in God’s goodness and His sovereignty as we resist the urge to be fearful or panicked. Prayer is our most powerful weapon and we encourage everyone to be in prayer about the situation. We will keep you informed if any of this information changes.
