Since March, we have worshipped together online. Although we are grateful for technology and the opportunity to still be able to meet online, we have missed worshiping together in-person. As you may know, we were prepared and ready to start gathering together in July when our plans were changed last minute due to a rise in cases and Fort Bend ISD deciding to temporarily suspend the use of their facilities. Since then, we have been diligently praying and looking for another space that we could use to be able to offer an in-person service.
We are so excited to let you know that we have found that space and we will be offering an in-person service starting on August 22nd at 4:00 pm. We are so grateful for Triumph Church in Sugar Land and Pastor Randon for allowing us to use their building. We have redesigned our weekend service to offer a sanitary and "touchless" environment that allows for physical distancing.
With this new opportunity came some changes that we want to make you aware of, being that we will be sharing the space with Triumph, we will be holding our in-person service on Saturday night. The building will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before our service and after our service. If you don’t feel comfortable coming in person, we will still offer an online service on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am on our website or our social media accounts.
A couple of ways to be a part of the Weekend Service:

We will still offer an online Kid’s Service that you can stream on Sunday’s. Feel free to bring a iPad with headphones for your children. We will also have coloring kits available at the entrances.
