With schools officially reopening, we’ve decided that it’s time to reopen the doors to our in-person gatherings. Registration is NOT needed for these gatherings, and we’ll kick things off with a new worship schedule that gives families two convenient opportunities to attend at each of our physical locations.
New Sunday Schedule
Hendersonville Campus: Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.
Gallatin Campus: Sundays at 9:15 and 11:15 a.m.
Online Campus: Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.
LH Kids activities will resume in full at both campuses on Sundays during the same service times. On-campus Life Groups will continue to meet off-campus, and students are encouraged to worship with their families on Sunday.
Special “Mask-Required” Rooms Available On Sundays
In order to provide the most options for those attending with us in-person, we’re designating special worship areas with a simulcast in the Hendersonville Campus Chapel and Gallatin Campus Student Area where masks are required for all attendees throughout the service.
Wednesday Night Activities
Wednesday night activities for LH Students are back at both campuses now, and other Wednesday activities are expected to return later this fall.
Capacity is limited and chairs will be spaced according to recommended social distancing guidelines. Staff and volunteers are required to wear masks and screen before entering the building. Students who attend are encouraged to wear masks and follow the health guidelines set forth by local health experts.
Deciding What’s Best for Your Family
We know that there are a variety of approaches and health considerations in our community during this season, so we encourage you to attend with us in the way that makes the most sense for your family. Whether you plan to attend online-only for a while longer, or feel comfortable coming back to in-person gatherings, we’ll meet you where you’re at to help you stay connected.
If you plan to attend with us in-person again, we encourage you to follow the social-distancing and mask guidelines set forth by local health experts to keep your family and others in attendance safe. All of our volunteers will wear masks, and we’re providing hand sanitizing stations throughout our buildings to help prevent the spread of illness. We’ve also increased our internal sanitization practices to clean commonly-used spaces between uses.
As always, our plans are subject to change depending on the ongoing health situation in our community. We look forward to gathering with you again in August, and we can’t wait to see how God will move in our midst this Fall.
Will regular activities look different when they return?
Like the rest of society, we expect that the way we interact with each other will look at little different for a while. We’re going to continue to modify the parts of our services and programs that required physical contact before (such as passing offering buckets and greeting each other with handshakes), and we’re doing everything we can to keep our facilities clean and safe.
Even if you see more face masks (and a lot more hand sanitizer) when we gather together again in-person, we hope it will feel like coming home.
What about regular yearly events?
In the near term, some of our events will gather as an online-only event, and some will still meet in-person (but look a little different this year). Keep an eye on our website and social media channels for more information about upcoming events.
