HERITAGE PARK COVID-19 UPDATES

We are all in a unique space right now as we determine how to navigate a landscape that seems to change by the hour. At Heritage Park, there are two things we are currently putting our energies towards:


1) What does it look like for the church to continue coming together to encourage and challenge each other in a moment where we can not physically gather?


2) What does it look like for the church to step in and meet the needs that are around us today?


Please see below for the latest information on those two areas. As you know, the situation is constantly changing and so we will be updating this page often with the latest information.

Church GATHERINGS

We have resumed in-person gatherings at 8:00, and 11:00 am.  There will be preschool available at both services times. 

 

  • We will offer online service at the 11:00am service. It can be streamed either on this site, online church, or facebook
  • Kid's Sunday School and Student Sunday School will meet at 9:30am in the youth room. The kids' will be upstairs in the kids' hallway
  • Adult Sunday school for the adults are being held in the adult hallway at 9:30am. 
  • Adult small group gatherings for the adults are being held using Cisco Webex or in person, during the week. Please contact your leader to find out more details about how your Sunday school or small group is meeting. 
  • If you are looking to join a Sunday school or small group, click here to see what classes we offer. 

What to expect on Sunday morning

  • At this time, all church staff and volunteers will be in mask ready to greet and welcome you in anyway possible. 
  • At this time we are asking that your mask be on when you are not seated. Sunday School classes will not require masks if you can socially distance.  
  • When you walk in, there will be an area with mask and hand sanitizer available.
       --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • In the Worship Center, we ask that you place a couple seats between you and anyone that is not with you.

Meeting Needs

We know these times are hard on everyone. However if you know of specific needs that need to be met and/or of those in our community that want to be of help to others. To help us coordinate our response, please Complete this form to let us know if you need help or would like to help.

Giving

We understand this pandemic will have financial costs to many of our people. If you need to adjust your normal giving, we understand that. If it gets to the point you are having trouble making ends meet, please let us know using form linked above for needs. 

But if you normally give to Heritage Park and plan to continue during this time, we are asking that all gifts, as far as it is possible, be moved online for the next few weeks. In the short-term, we are trying to reduce person-to-person contact as much as possible. Depositing physical checks requires two people to make a trip to the church to prepare the deposit and then a trip to the bank to drop it off. While this is, using proper precautions, fairly low risk, we would prefer to move it to no risk for a time.

Please note that on the church’s end, it is much better for the gift to be sent from your bank account versus via credit or debit card. The reason for this is a gift from your bank account has a $0.30 processing fee while credit and debit cards have a 2.2% processing fee. So if you give $100 from your bank account, $99.70 gets to the church, but with a $100 gift from your card only $97.80 goes through.

We understand that there are good reasons that you might want to continue to mail a check directly to the church or to utilize your bank’s bill pay service to contribute tithes and offerings to Heritage Park. That is completely fine. But if the avenue of giving does not matter, please consider moving your giving online for the time being.

Thank you for all you do to support what God is doing through Heritage Park!
