We at the Fountain continue to respond to both the virus as well as our government's attempt to limit it's spread. I have updated our current plan below, which once again includes an outside service, which you can get more details on HERE.
Latest info: Due to the air quality (due to the fires) we have made some adjustments. When air quality is poor, the 8:30 service will be inside. We have also moved our 10:00 service to 10:15 to allow for additional time for our 10:15 worship team to practice in the event that the 8:30 service is taking place inside.
We know that Hebrews 10:25 records, “not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” The Christian life is meant to be lived in community, not isolation, and I look forward to seeing you in person again.
First things first, not everyone should join us: Let me be clear, we miss you. We want you here, but we want you safe. If you are battling cancer, if you have an autoimmune disease, if you are convinced, due to another concern, that for your own health you should wait a bit longer before joining us, then yes, you should. We are still available to run you something should you need it. We are here for you and look forward to when you can be with us in person. For those that can't be here in person, streaming will continue for our 10:15 service youtube, and when possible our 8:30 service as well.
Our doors are open at 10:15, for those who want to come in person, and inside.
We have improved the quality of our stream by switching to youtube, and posting a link to Facebook. We have added new technology that allows to show you slides directly, not just pictures of a slide on the wall, and hid our panning and zooming. We also have a second camera which will be installed soon.
We continue to do our best to follow advice given by health officials, government officials, and legal organizations, like Pacific Justice Institute.
Due to the heat, we have adjusted the hours of our outside service. @ 8:30 we invite you to drive into our North (Douglas side) parking lot. Face the building, roll down the windows, and join us. We have a piece of equipment on the way that will allow us to broadcast to the radios in your vehicles. When air quality is poor, we will move this service inside.
You may bring your own chairs, but for the purpose of meeting safety and health guidelines, we will not be providing chairs. If you have your own chairs you may set out In the yard or parking lot and enjoy.
If you feel comfortable doing so, wear a mask, but be aware that we are not making it a requirement, and so I’d expect some individuals not to wear mask.
Try to use the bathroom before you come. While our facilities will be open, we want to ease people into group contact, and minimize it.
Continue to respect each other’s distances as we ease back into this.
We will not be passing an offering plate but you can continue to give online and we will have an offering box near our make shift sound booth. Your continued support aids missionaries around the world..
We have individualized prepackaged communion wafers and juice that will be handed out to you by someone wearing gloves.
No song sheets will be handed out, but we will make lyrics available online ( you can see them on this page, and they will be updated each week.)
The building was fogged with a disinfecting fog by Moonlight Cleaning services.
We know have hand sanitzer stands inside the lobby.
