Winter 2019 Transition Plans
We’re looking forward to moving into the Ministry Center in January! Here are some things you need to know as we approach that time…
First of all, please note that some plans may be subject to change during this period of transition. Our staff will send out updates as they’re available, and individual ministry leaders will be in touch with participants about changes related to their activities. Please watch for future emails from the church or from your ministry leaders for more information.
Prior to our move into the Ministry Center, we’ll be hosting two special worship services in the Worship Center:
Sunday, December 30
We’ll host one worship service at 10:00 a.m. in the WC auditorium to take a look back in thankfulness for the past year.
Sunday, January 6
We’ll host one worship service at 10:00 a.m. in the WC auditorium. This will be our final worship service in the current Worship Center, and we’ll take a look forward at what’s to come.
Worship Center Workdays
To prepare for the coming renovation, we’re hosting two workdays to clear out items from the Worship Center and organize items to be stored until renovations are complete. Mark your calendars for these dates and plan to help out!
Saturday, January 12
9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Saturday, January 19
9:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

Parents are encouraged to park in the north lot near the ECC and enter through the ECC main entrance, where check-in kiosks will be available. A walkway from the ECC to the MC will allow families to move between buildings, especially in inclement weather. Our Buddies class for those with special needs will begin in the ECC for our large group gathering before moving to the MC.
