IN-PERSON WORSHIP INFORMATION

Though we are eager to return to worship at the church, the health and safety of all members and attendees is our highest priority. We want to share a few details to make sure things go well. Please help us by reviewing the following guidelines and procedures before attending.


BEFORE COMING TO CHURCH

  • If you would like to attend a service, please register here SAVE-A-SEAT. You will receive an email confirmation saving you seat. 
  • If you are sick or do not feel well, please stay home to help protect the health and safety of others.
  • If you are in the At-Risk population, we encourage you to continue participating in our Sunday online worship.
  • Our services will be limited in capacity. Please attend during your reserved service time. If you need to cancel or make a change, use the link in your confirmation email.
  • We are offering a class on Sunday, at 10:30 a.m. for children age 2-4 years old. Our classes for nursery, elementary, students, and adults will follow in later phases of reopening. For children attending the service, Busy Bags will be available.
  • The facilities will be sanitized before and after each service.
  • To ensure seats for our first time guests and other Fellowship attenders, if for any reason, you cannot attend or you want to attend a different service time, please click the Cancel Reservation link in your confirmation email. This frees up your seat for someone else.
  • Prepare for worship through prayer & praise to the Lord. Please come with an attitude of flexibility, patience, and grace.

UPON ARRIVAL

  • Please remain in your car until 20 min before the service begins. To ensure distancing, there will be no waiting in the lobby area.  
  • Face coverings are highly encouraged.
  • The ONLY entrance to the campus will be on the Southside of the campus, the main entrance near the Guest Services Desk. All other entry doors will be closed.
  • Please maintain a minimum of 6ft distance at all times from anyone not in your family group.
  • Staff members and volunteers will be available to help you find a seat if needed. Keep at least three empty seats (or six feet separation) between parties in any row.
  • Please only sit with family members that came with you. Hopefully, we will be able to resume sitting with our friends soon.
  • Fellowship will not be serving food or drinks until later phases of reopening. You may bring your own drink if you like but please only use a spill proof container.
  • Though we will want to embrace each other, please, no handshaking or hugging at this time.
  • Parents, please accompany your child to the restroom to ensure best practices to avoid germs.
  • You will be dismissed from the worship center in sections to ensure distancing. Please promptly exit the building.

A message from elders & staff

May 9, 2020


Church family,


We have been monitoring COVID-19 updates, and staying up to date with State and local regulations over the past month.  With recent changes to our State's 'stay at home' order we are beginning the process of offering in-person services at Fellowship Forney, beginning May 9.  The health and safety of our members and guests is our priority at Fellowship Forney. We have worked diligently, as a team, to create the safest environment possible, while continuing to offer online opportunities for families who are not ready to attend a church service in person at this time.  


Children, Student, and Adult Bible studies will continue to meet online for the upcoming weeks, as will all midweek ministries.  All worship services will be focused on the entire family unit as we are asking families to attend Sunday worship together. Whether you are worshipping with us 'in person' or online, we truly believe this will be an incredible time for the Church to shine the light of Jesus to a world that is struggling with hope in our current situation, and we want to equip our families to shine that light.


As you can imagine, churches all over the globe are working around the clock to minister to their families. They are also contemplating new ways to minister to families in light of recent events. One of the greatest struggles for the local church will be weekly tithes and offerings during this time. If you would like to continue partnering with Fellowship Forney through giving, you may do so by visiting bit.ly/givingfellowship. All over the globe, our missionaries have been directly impacted by the spread of COVID-19. Your weekly tithes will help us continue the work of Christ.


We will continue to monitor this situation and work with our local public service and health officials. Please continue to check here or on our church Facebook page for up to date information.


We love you church! We are praying with you and standing with you. May we all shine the light of Christ together during the upcoming days!


Fellowship Elders & Staff


How should I respond to COVID-19?

Though situations like these can stir up fear and anxiety, God is sovereign over all things, and our ultimate hope is found in Jesus. Although we won’t be gathering for services and events, we encourage you to stay connected to the church body through calls, texts, and online engagement. Pray for those affected by this virus as we wait for Christ to return and bring about a day without sickness, suffering, and death.


To minimize the risk of illness, here are a few practical things you can do to love your neighbor:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow
