Limited Reopening
Beginning Sunday, October 4th

Reserve Your Spot Today!

THE DETAILS:

When are we meeting?
Starting Sunday, October 4th, we will resume meeting for in person, live services at our normal service times of 9 & 11am.  Rise City Kids will be available at both services.  Middle School Ministry will meet during the 11am service.

What can be expected?
While the overall number of attenders will be reduced and we will not be able to offer some of the things you’ve come to expect at Rise, like hot coffee and donut holes, we will still be offering amazing live worship (with singing), the same great Bible teaching you are used to and a full complement of kids ministry programming.

Are reservations required?
Reservations are required in order to ensure we have enough space for everyone and our children are appropriately cared for.

How do I register?

There will be a link  in the ENews and on the website every single week.  The system we are using to take reservations requires those in the auditorium and kids who will be checked into Kids Care (or Middle School) to be entered separately when you sign up.  Please register adults and children separately unless your children will be staying with you in the auditorium.  

First, select which service you will be attending, either 9am or 11am.  For adults, select”Main Auditorium” and put in the total number of people who will be attending church in the auditorium.  If you plan on your children staying with you in the service, please include them in the “Main Auditorium” number.

If you plan on checking your child into Rise City Kids, please go to the kids section and select the appropriate room and the number of children you will be registering for each room.
For children, please fill out THEIR name but YOUR email.

If you have multiple children in the same room, you must register them at the same time.  Select the number you want in the correct room and then pick 1 name to put in the “Name” field.

If you need to register people in more than 1 venue (ie, main auditorium plus a kids room), fill out the form for one person; you will get a confirmation page.  Click the back button and you should then be able to select a different venue to register other people.

Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email.

Reserve your spot today.

Are masks required?
Yes, but only in the common areas and lobby.  They can be removed once you enter the auditorium and find your seat; kids will not be required to wear them in their program spaces.  Masks will be available if you do not have one.  All staff and volunteers will be required to wear one.

What about kids ministry?
We will continue to offer our same high-quality kids programming for all kids birth-5th grade at both service, as well as middle school during the 11am service. Space is limited however, so please register your children when signing up each week.

What’s more, if you have an underlying medical condition, believe you are in a high-risk category, or you are over the age of 65 we recommend you stay home and continue worshiping with us online. That being said, we won’t turn you away at the door unless you’re showing symptoms.
