what to expect at alfc

As we are “reinventing” church. Services may look a little different, but Jesus is still Lord!

Here’s the current plan for our in-person gatherings at ALFC:

>> Q: WHEN AND WHERE DO WE GATHER IN-PERSON?

Campus Location | Foster Village | 6600 Starnes Rd. 76148

  • Easter Sunday, April 4 | 10am
  • Sunday, April 11 | 10am 
 

>> Q: WHEN DO WE GATHER ONLINE?
We are gathering online and in-person, Sundays at 10am, You can join us on YouTube, Facebook, IGTV or our website. All Wednesday Night services are online only at 7pm.


>> Q: WHAT ARE THE HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOLS? 
Your well-being is our top priority! ALFC will employ health and social distancing measures for your safety and in consideration of all in attendance. 

1. MASKS | We encourage you to wear a mask but it is no longer required. 

2. HEALTH CHECKS |  If you have a temp above 100.4 will not be able to attend church, per CDC guidelines. Any guests or volunteers who are experiencing persistent coughing or difficulty breathing should attend our online service instead, per CDC guidelines.

3. HUGS AND HANDSHAKES | We are a loving group and we enjoy hugs, handshakes and the like, but for the comfort of others we ask that for now, you refrain and offer an “air hug” instead.

4. CLEANING & SANITATION | Our team has thoroughly and diligently cleaned the building in preparation for your arrival! Additionally, there are several hand sanitizing stations located throughout the church for your convenience. 
 
>> Q: ANYTHING ELSE TO KNOW?
Here are a few logistics that may look a little different in this season!

  • When you arrive doors will be open and a member of our hospitality team will seat you. We will have plenty of socially distanced seats available! Chairs are in groups of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. If you seat yourself, please choose the group that closest matches your family size so we have enough space for everyone. 
  • We have provided a special section for members who are considered part of the vulnerable population but still wish to attend. 
  • We are reducing the occupancy of the restrooms to two people.  If more than two are present, please wait in the lobby until your turn.
  • In order to limit contact, we will not be passing the offering buckets during the service. We have offering boxes mounted on the wall near both sanctuary exit doors. You can simply drop your offering in along with prayer requests, praise reports, and guest cards on your way out.
  • We will also be dismissing the service by section.  The ushers will be there to guide and direct you.  Please make sure that you wait for their instruction to ensure a safe and orderly dismissal.
  • If you are not in a position to enjoy an in-person service for any reason (health, readiness, comfort, etc.) at this time, no problem, you can continue to gather with us online! We will continue to offer both online and in-person services — as both are a vibrant part of our future together! Service will be available on our website, YouTube channel, and Facebook page.  Please subscribe and set alerts so you can enjoy every service and receive what God has for you!

Your safety and well-being are a top priority to us. Let’s all do our part to keep ourselves and OTHERS safe and comfortable. We appreciate your participation!
