FAQ

Attending church means something different now:
During Phase 1 (currently):

  • You can attend church online

During Phase 2 (starting Aug 2):

  • You can attend church in person
  • You can attend church by hosting a watch party at your house – huddle up at your house with friends, family, or your LifeGroup.
  • You can attend church online

We want to ensure each church experience is going to be the best it can be, whether you are going to join us online or in person. There is no right way to attend a church service right now. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible with the decision you make!

When you arrive, you can park and walk to the entrance with your household keeping a 6-foot distance from other households. There will be hosts to assist you in the building and Worship Center.

At all times we will ask you to maintain a 6-foot safe distance and wear a mask as you move through and sit in building. Hosts will help you find your reserved seating in the Worship Center. We are asking you to not congregate in the atrium before or after services to maintain social distancing. We know the time in the atrium is a big part of the experience for many of you and we encourage you to find other ways to connect with people at Horizons. Some ways to connect with others are by joining our Facebook group, Growth Track, a LifeGroup, or by inviting a few people to your home as you’re comfortable.

Growth Track

Yes, during Phase 2 we still want to meet in person, but we are looking to keep you safe. Some differences will include no physical programs, and we will not be passing communion/offering.  We will have offering boxes mounted on the back walls in the worship center for you to drop your offering in or you can give online.  The experience will still include worship (though it may be projected for a time), teaching, and communion (the 1st Sunday of the month).

We do not anticipate normal kid’s programming until Phase 3. Your child (birth – 8th grade) will join you in the Worship Center. Here are some helpful tips to make it a great time for them:

  1. Bring a tablet and headphones so your kid can do online DZ/Fusion programming during the message. 
  2. Bring a coloring book from home. Please bring your own crayons or colored pencils. 
  3. A few tables and chairs will be available in the Worship Center for families.

We are taking every step of precaution as prescribed by the CDC to ensure that Horizons is safe, secure, and spacious for your family.

  1. The building will be thoroughly cleaned between each worship experience in accordance with CDC guidelines.
  2. We are encouraging social distancing and the wearing of masks while in the building. Doors will be propped open for you to limit contact as much as possible. We will also space out seating to ensure social distancing in the Worship Center.
  3. We are temporarily not providing food and coffee to limit contact as much as possible.
  4. We will not be passing offering and will have a system in place to limit contact during communion.
  5. Please follow the Nebraska Guidelines for Faith-Based Services as you make the decision to attend church in person.
