What day will services resume at 2281 Southern Blvd?
The tentative plan to reopen has been postponed to a future date in October. We are working to address the maintenance issues as well as having rescheduled the cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing prior to entering the building. Thank you for your prayers, support and patience in preparing our place of worship to be fit for a safe gathering.
What time are services?
Once in-person services resume, doors will be open for leadership prayer from 8:30-9:30am and worship service from 9:35-11am.
What steps has Hopes Way taken to follow health protocols?
Your safety and health are important to us. We have spaced seating, doors will be opened, and every pew will be sanitized prior to use. We ask that everyone visiting our Sunday service wear a mask and adhere to CDC recommended guidelines by maintaining 6 feet of distance. Signage is posted at the entrance to the sanctuary as a reminder.
What should I expect when I arrive at the church building?
An usher will welcome you at the front entrance, and check your temperature. Masks are required. We will offer a mask if you do not have one and hand sanitizer. Families will be seated together, while non-family members will be placed no more than 3 to a pew. All singing will be done with masks on. After the service, the vestibule is not available for extended social interactions.
Will there be altar prayer and Communion?
Prayer and Communion will continue to be an essential part of our worship services. If you have a prayer request, please remain in your seat, and a Hopes Way leader will pray for you from a distance. We cannot invite individuals for altar prayer at this time. If you would like private prayer, you can supply your phone number, and a member of our prayer team will call you to pray. During Communion, we will not invite individuals to the altar and will serve prefilled Communion sets.
Are restrooms available?
Restrooms are available for use. However, we encourage you and your family use the restroom before arriving.
Is there an online option for watching the service?
We are currently working to provide an option for livestreaming the service. At this time, those who are unable to attend in-person services can continue to call our conference line 1-888.915.2217 from 9:35-11am.
