Church At the Lake
Now that the weather is warmer, we'll provide a mix of both outdoor
in-person experiences as well as some online services.
On the Sundays that we meet in-person (see schedule here), we will have a Church At the Lake service and meet up at the playground/pavilion at Governor Nelson State park at 10:30am. We ask that you bring your own lawn chair. To find us once you get to the park, pull into the area that says "pet swim area" and park there. You will see a path straight ahead and when there is a fork in the path there will be a sign that says "no pets beyond this point" - that is the path that you want to take. Walk a little farther and you will see us under the pavilion.
Our foundry kids will be going on nature hikes during this time and can sign-in for that at 10:20am. Children age 4 and under will need to be accompanied by an adult. Please make sure to apply sunscreen to your children prior to signing them in for the hike.
For the adult service, we will share reflection and discussion around scripture and there will also be time for prayer. You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and to hang out and enjoy the park after the service ends.
In the event of inclement weather on our Church At the Lake Sundays, our website will be updated at 9 am to reflect if we will be holding a service or not. You can also get up to date info by connecting to foundry group chat on the GroupMe app. Email email@example.com to be added to the GroupMe list.
Online Zoom Services
For the days that we meet online, we'll meet on Zoom at 10:30 am. If you're interested in attending our online service, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link. In addition, we have a separate Zoom room for our foundry kids (age 4-4th grade) and foundry youth (5th-9th grade), which also meets on Sunday at 10:30 am.
Here's what to expect with our online service:
We meet upon Zoom and say some general hello's, followed by a brief teaching and a song or two of worship music. At the end of the service, the children and youth will sign out of their respective zoom rooms and join their parents in the main service room to share a bit about what they learned. During the service, you are welcome to keep your camera on or off, whatever makes you feel the most comfortable.
We are a very relational church, which we realize can be challenging in an online setting. Some people like to socialize and show up to church 10 minutes early for some casual chitchat. We often tend to hang out a few minutes after service for people that want to continue the conversation as well. We realize that we have both introverts and extroverts that attend our service, so we try to make it comfortable for both groups of people.
