Share the love of Jesus with children around the world by building a shoebox filled with gifts! You can grab a box from the church and fill it yourself, or build one online for $25 at https://build-a-shoebox.samaritanspurse.org/view/420e26bd-e42b-4a5e-9092-063dac7551cd. Please have the boxes back to the church by November 8th!
We have all been anxious for things to get back to normal. However, the risk of Covid-19 is still high as there are active case in Juneau. Please be safe and help others be safe and feel safe (even if you do not have any symptoms) by following these guidelines. We would not want people to stay away from church because of unsafe practices increasing risk of exposure.
Please read these guidelines:
If you are feeling ill, symptoms of cough, fever, runny nose, etc., please stay home and watch our service online. If you are vulnerable to this virus, you are welcome to stay home and watch online. Even though we would love to have you join us, we want you to be safe from illness that could be potentially serious.
We will not have Sunday School classes, nursery, children’s church or Sunday Evening services in the beginning while we figure out how all this is going to work. We will introduce these back into our schedule as soon as we can.
The expectation is that everyone will wear a mask and practice social distancing of at least 6 feet.
Hand sanitizer and extra masks will be available.
Minimize the places you touch as you enter the building. Doors will be propped open prior to the service.
Physical Contact - As difficult as it may be, please avoid handshakes and hugs for the present time.
Bulletins - We will continue to email bulletins. We will have a few printed bulletins for visitors and those for whom we do not have email addresses. We will also post a bulletin on the bulletin board if you want to take a picture on your phone.
For better ventilation, we will have some of the sanctuary and foyer windows opened to minimize potential exposure. Dress accordingly.
When you enter the foyer, we would like for you to continue into the sanctuary and find seating.
Seating - Every other pew will be blocked off (sorry If that is your favorite pew) to maintain social distance. When you are seated with other people in your row, maintain a safe distance.
Children – Until we have nursery and children’s church parents are responsible to keep their children with them.
Masks - We ask that you keep your masks on during the service as singing projects particles further than simply speaking. Keep your neighbor safe.
Offering receptacles will be placed in the back of the sanctuary and also at the front. We will not be passing the plates. Please use good handwashing and hygiene methods in the restrooms. Minimize touch areas by using paper towels to open doors. When dismissed at the end of worship, you may exit the front doors or through the foyer. We prefer if you would visit outside, maintaining 6-feet physical distancing, and not have a lot of people congregate in the foyer.
Hand sanitizer will be available in the foyer and at the front exit of the sanctuary for you to use as you exit the sanctuary.
Your cooperation and willingness to help minimize the risk of asymptomatic exposure to others will help us continue to meet together for worship and other ministry activities.
Join us for a global virtual Vacation Bible School!!
Monday 6/22 - Thursday 6/25
All you have to do is watch our Facebook page for the link during those dates. We will be hosting online at 11:00 AM every morning!
WOW is a 4 episode, 4 day Virtual Bible Spectacular Event. It features different hosts from all around the world! Kids and families will view an interactive program of worship, Bible stories, games, and a presentation of the gospel message. We hope you will join us!
Sunday, June 7th @ 11:00 AM will be our first re-gathering together worship service! We will only start with the worship service and add more activities/ministries as we go. Please be patient with us as we navigate through this time.
Also, be aware that Mendenhall Loop Road construction is beginning this week and may temporarily alter our front entrance accessibility. During this time we will open the gate on the north end of the building during Sunday morning worship times so there is access from the back of the Church (Bresee Street entrance).
May is a 5 Sunday month! Normally, we would have a Singspiration that Sunday, sharing our favorite music and songs with our church family, and this month is no exception!
So, if you'd like to be a part of the service, please send us a video of you singing or playing a song! You can record it on your phone, laptop, or camera, and then send it to Pastor Dan through email, text, or Facebook messenger! Pastor is also willing to record your video at the church.
If we could have them in by Sunday, May 24th, he can have time to put them all together for the service. If you have any questions, you can contact Freddy Cummins. Looking forward to seeing your videos!
This will certainly be like no Easter we have had before! While we may be stuck at home, we can still come together online to celebrate our risen Savior. May we use this time to cut out all the distractions and really focus on the reason we celebrate. Death is defeated, and Christ is alive!
Holy Week Schedule
Each day: Watch for "Eyewitness Bible Series" videos.
Thursday: "Drive-Up Communion and Prayer" 5:30-7 p.m. at the front church parking lot, from your car.
Our lives have certainly been full of life-altering changes these past couple weeks. Since the coronavirus has come to Alaska, this week, even more drastic changes have been happening in lives all across Alaska.
One major change that has affected the church is the cancellation of our “in-person” church services. We are also cancelling “in-person” Bible Studies and worship services until further notice. It is uncertain how long this will be, but we can anticipate weeks, at least. It is really about protecting our vulnerable loved ones and our neighbors.
In lieu of “in-person” worship services, we will begin livestreaming our morning worship service this Sunday morning at 11:00 AM. Although it will only be our worship team and Pastor Dan preaching, we trust that many will join us on the church’s Facebook page. You should be able to do this even if you do not have a Facebook account. Another alternative will be watching the recorded serviceposted on here later on Sunday. We are also looking into more platforms besides Facebook.
Though we are unable to meet together in person, the church’s ministry will still go on, though in a different format. Thus, the church is still in need of your support through tithes and offerings. There are several methods you can give. You can mail a check to PO Box 32360, Juneau, 99803. You can text give to 907-312-2755. When you do it the first time, you will be guided through a process of setting up regular giving options. Or you can give through a link on our church website.
Should you have prayer requests, you can email them to Pastor Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org or through a message sent through the church website. Calling the church at 907-789-2724 also works. Leave a message if no one is available. As the saying goes, “We have never done it like this before,” so bear with us as we work through ways of finding effective ministry. We welcome new ideas. God bless you!
