Sunday Outdoor Church
Location: We will be meeting in the back parking lot at the First Southern Baptist Church in San Lorenzo. It is located in the neighborhood off of Hesperian Boulevard across from Walmart/Taco Bell and behind Big-5 Sporting Goods next to the cemetery.
Sign Up: It is important that you sign up to let us know that you are or are not coming so we can prepare properly.
Parking: Since we will be using the church parking lot you will need to park on the street next to the cemetery or around the church. There will be plenty of parking available. Please be mindful to not leave any valuables in your car.
Time: On Sunday we will begin the service at 10:30 and we will want that extra time to make sure all of our setup and structures are in order. To that end, we ask that you arrive by 10:00 am to make sure we can have everyone in place ready to go at the right time.
Church Service: This will only be a church service (Singing, Prayer, Announcements, Sermon). That means that we will not be having any nursery, children’s ministry, or student ministries meet. Family’s will need to sit together and remain together for the duration of the service.
COVID-19 Protocols: We recognize, based on our recent COVID-19 survey, that we will have varying views, feelings, and perspectives about COVID-19 precautions. So, it will be important that we make it a priority to be respectful of one another, considerate, and looking for ways to make sure that everyone feels comfortable and safe. Our desire is to do our best to meet the spirit of the COVID-19 protocols while at the same time exercising our liberty in Christ. So this is what you can expect:
- Temperature Check - When you arrive, the first place you will need to go to is the station where we will check your temperature. It is a no-touch check, and we will also take attendance.
- Masks/Face Coverings: Please wear masks at all times. Once you are in place in your seats for the service you may remove your mask or keep it on. That is up to you. We will be singing!
- Hand Sanitizer: We ask that when you arrive that you take a moment to sanitize your hands. We will have a number of sanitizing stations available.
- Social Distancing: Please be mindful to maintain the suggested social distancing of 6 feet.
Seating: It is important that you sign up on the link below to indicate that you will be coming so that the set-up crew can space everyone appropriately.
Restrooms: We will have access to the church’s restrooms, but they will be limited to one family unit at a time. So, children must be accompanied by an adult.
Food & Drink: Gateway will not be providing any food or drinks as refreshments. If you bring any drink (coffee, water) please be sure that it is only for your own family and is not to be shared with others. Remember, we will be outside, so please be prepared (Water, etc.)
Bulletins/Song Lyrics: We will not be able to hand out Bulletins and will likely not have a PowerPoint available (we may, but it is secondary). To that end, we will be sending digital copies of both and ask that you print up what your family will need on that morning. The document will be available on Saturday evening.
