REGATHERING Plan for Preteen

ATTENTION: The following content pertains to a June 21st Regathering Plan, which was postponed to to an increase in Covid cases. CLICK HERE for the most current update.

ATTENTION PARENTS! MISSION is preparing to Regather!

Exciting, right? If you watched the service on Sunday, May 31, you heard Joel talk about our regathering plan. You can watch the service HERE (Joel talks about the plan at the very end of the service). If you want to see the plan in writing, you can check that out at missionaz.org/plan.

But what does this mean for my preteen? That’s a good question. We’ve got you covered. Below are all the details we have as of Tuesday morning, June 2nd.

Regathering Schedule

  • Sunday, June 21 in person gathering (limited capacity)
  • Sunday, June 28 in person gathering (limited capacity)
  • Sunday, July 5 online gatherings (no in person gatherings)
  • Sunday, July 12 in person gatherings (potentially expanding capacity)

When we reopen, we will open at 30% capacity. This means that we will set up an RSVP system to attend. When we hit 30% capacity, we will not have seats for that service. If the service is full, you’ll need to consider another service or view online. Our RSVP system should go live 4-6 days before the weekend.

Promotion

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that we typically promote in late May. Since we were in quarantine, we hit the pause button and have decided that we are going to officially promote on Sunday, July 12. So, if you come back on June 21 or 28, your preteen will be where they were before the quarantine. This gives everyone an opportunity to come back to familiar environments before promotion. We will also begin communicating promotion information once we’re back.

New Service Times

To maximize our time to clean and sanitize all surfaces between services, we’re modifying our service times. We will offer preschool at 8:30, 10:30, and 12:30.

Safety Practices

Safety has always been our highest value. As we plan to regather after months of quarantine, our priority for safety is guiding our strategy. Before we open our facilities, all of our volunteers will retrain, specifically around keeping kids safe and environments clean. We are implementing adjustments to pick up and drop off to offer contact free experiences for EVERYONE who comes in and out of our buildings. We understand that children don’t social distance well, so we’re making adjustments to everything we do to limit contact as much as possible and ensure that all kids have and AMAZING and SAFE experience. As we get closer to June 21, we will communicate more instructions to help you prepare.

See You Soon

It won’t be long until many of us are together again. We miss you and we CONTINUE to pray for you, your health and your well being! Please let us know if you have any questions!
