Indoor/Outdoor Services

Join Us this weekend!

During this season we’ve learned a lot. First, we’ve learned that there is no barrier that the Holy Spirit cannot break through! Second, we’ve learned to be flexible and hold our plans loosely since I’m sure you know how fast things can change. Starting March 7th, 2021 we will be offering more options for how and when we gather.

Starting Sunday, March 7


Outdoor only

Even though it has been an unconventional season, we have cherished our outdoor services! There has been something special about gathering outdoors to lift up the name of Jesus together, no matter what the elements throws at us! As we continue to have an outdoor option, here’s the things to know if you’d still like to gather outside:

• We will be gathering in the “cross” parking lot. Worship and message will be live outside at 9am.

• KIDS MIN AVAILABLE (0-2years will be inside, 3 year olds-6th graders will be outside)

• NO LIVESTREAM ONLINE AT 9AM (due to logistical and technical issues, we will need to livestream from indoors at 11am. After the livestream, the service will be available to watch anytime.)

• Bring your chair or blanket if you’d like, we will also have folding chairs available.

• Bring some protection from the elements. With the weather on the Central Coast, you never know what you’re going to get! So come prepared with sunscreen, a hat, a sweater, etc.

• We ask that you wear a face covering as you’re moving about and interacting with those outside your Quaran-Team.

• Please perform a self-screening before attending. We hope it goes without saying at this point, but if you’ve had fever in the last 48 hours or you’re experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, or you’ve knowingly been exposed (and don’t know your status), please stay home.

• If we need to modify our outdoor option due to weather, please sign up for our text alerts in order to be informed. Text “weather” to 805-979-2003

INDOOR / OUTDOOR OPTIONS

During our 11am service, worship and preaching will be live indoors. However if you’d like to sit outside at 11am, we will be streaming the service to the patio.

• Registration is not required. However, if we reach capacity indoors, we will have the patio available for overflow.

• Face coverings are required indoors at all times.

• We will be keeping 2 rows of space unoccupied between parties and ask that you keep at least 3 empty seats between you and anyone not a part of your quaran-team.

• KIDS MIN AVAILABLE (0-2years will be inside, 3 year olds-6th graders will be outside) Please note that we are still working on details for kids min at 11am and recruiting more volunteers to make this happen. These plans may change. Thanks for understanding!

• Please perform a self-screening before attending. We hope it goes without saying at this point, but if you’ve had fever in the last 48 hours or you’re experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, or you’ve knowingly been exposed (and don’t know your status), please stay home.

• LIVESTREAM ONLINE AVAILABLE AT 11AM (Facebook, YouTube, and www.newlifepismo.com/live)

Livestream at 11am

If you’re not comfortable gathering in-person yet, THAT IS TOTALLY OK! We will be live-streaming our services at 11am on Youtube, Facebook, and our website and they’ll be available to watch anytime after that!

We are so excited to be able to offer an in-person option for our kids! Not only to help our kids live fully alive in community with one another, but to also give parents a much needed break to be able to enjoy service! We are doing everything we can to be able to offer Kids Min at both services, which will require some more loving volunteers (hint. hint.) These details may change as we work out all that we need to make this happen. Here’s the bullet points of things to know:

BIRTH – 2 YEARS OLD: During both Sunday morning services inside a classroom. Leaders will be required to wear a face covering; however, babies and toddler are not required to.

3-YEAR-OLDS – PRE-K (5 year olds): During both Sunday morning services outdoors.

KINDERGARTEN – 6TH GRADE: During both Sunday morning services, outdoor on the Student Center basketball court (across the street on Crest Way)

JUNIOR HIGH: Wednesdays at 6pm on the Patio. (we are exploring more options, including moving indoors. If you’re a parent/grandparent of a junior higher, please FILL OUT THIS SURVEY to let us know your thoughts.

HIGH SCHOOL: Sundays evenings on the Patio. 5:30pm: Dinner and hang-out time 6pm: Worship + Bible Study. (we are exploring more options, including moving indoors. If you’re a parent/grandparent of a high schooler, please FILL OUT THIS SURVEY to let us know your thoughts)

• A note about Kids Min: We are doing our best to keep kids in cohorts in order to limit their exposure to other children. For this reason we ask that you do what you can to attend the same service each week (9am or 11am) so that kids are not going back and forth between cohorts. We know this may be an inconvenience but we thank you for your consideration.

If you’re not able to join us in person, we still will have a fantastic at-home experience for you to create with your kids whenever you’d like during the week.

ONLINE KIDS MIN

 

New Life has always seen ourselves as a community church. We are FOR the Central Coast and one of our highest goals is that our gatherings would be a source of hope and healing for not only our attenders but also our whole community. Our county officials have been so gracious in helping us and encouraging us to gather. We want to honor and respect their graciousness by making sure we are responsible and respectful neighbors. For that reason, we ask for all who attend to do so with love for our community in mind. We know it will be hard to resist for all of us, but we ask that you respect the social distancing guidelines in place and keep in mind that people will be attending with ALL different levels of comfort when it comes to regathering.

 

We love you and we can’t wait to see you!
