You are invited to Drive-In Worship on June 28 at 9:30am, right in Advent’s parking lot! We are very excited to welcome you back to Advent’s property for prayer and praise! Here are a few things to keep in mind as you prepare to join us:
- Online worship will continue, weekly, for the foreseeable future. We are excited to see everyone, but if you or a family member are not feeling well, or if any of you have any risk factors of coronavirus, please stay home.When in doubt, take your temperature.
- Please arrive 15 minutes early so everyone can get situated.
- Please follow the directions of our traffic ushers. They will have masks and gloves on for your safety and theirs. They will give you what you need for the service, guide you into our entrance, help you get situated, and guide you out again.
- Please remain in your vehicle before, during and after worship. This is essential for your safety and that of others. The building will not be open, even for restrooms, unless it is an absolute emergency, and even then we cannot admit more than one person at a time.
- Because we will remain in vehicles, for the time being we will not require worshipers to wear facemasks.
- We will be using our PA system for you to hear and participate in the service. We will also have an FM transmitter (similar to drive-in movies) and we will let you know how to tune in on your car radio.
- Our first service will be a Service of the Word. As always, Jesus is fully present when we hear his Word, and we receive his grace in full. As we learn from our first service, it may be possible to also receive Holy Communion as part of our Drive-In service.
- We will have offering buckets on your route as you enter and leave the parking lot. We encourage you to continue giving generously to support our mission. If you are more comfortable with online giving, you can still do so securely through our website: adventlakeann.org/support-our-ministry
Thank you for your patience as we adjust to a new reality. We are weighing our deep need for spiritual community, along with God’s command to protect life and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Therefore, we will continue to proceed with hope and with utmost care for one another’s safety. Expect to hear more from us as our Church Council monitors the situation and recommendations from local and national health experts.
