LATEST UPDATES: COVID-19 Plans & Adjustments
UPDATED SEPTEMBER 4, 2020
REACHING UP IN WORSHIP
We are currently gathering on-site on Sundays, at all campuses, safely and joyfully! There is no need for adults to RSVP; however, pre-registration of children is currently required each week. This will allow us to guarantee a spot for each child, in a safe and efficient manner. If you plan to join us next Sunday, in-person, please pre-register here.
WHAT TO EXPECT THIS SUNDAY:
We will provide the utmost care to ensure safe and clean environments. Here are some ways we will accomplish this:
- If you are showing any signs of acute sickness, please stay home and worship with us online.
- All 3Circle staff and volunteers (except those on the platform) will wear a mask at all times.
- Face coverings are required for all attendees (excluding those with applicable medical condition/disability, and children, 6 yrs and younger).
- We will not pass offering containers. We have touchless collection boxes near the doors within the Worship Center. You may also choose to continue to give through our website, by texting "3CGIVE" to 97000, or through our 3Circle mobile app.
- Hand sanitizer will be readily available, and frequent hand-washing with soap is encouraged.
- We will adhere to social distancing practices (six feet between each person or family at all times), and ask that you do so, as well.
- We have reduced seating capacity to allow for adequate space between each person/family attending.
- We will sanitize the facilities in preparation for Sunday morning gatherings. This includes the floors, restrooms, worship center chairs, and other touchable surfaces.
- Coffee is now being served, with special sanitary precautions in place.
- Family ministry environments for Pre-school (3Circle Jr.) and K-4th grades (3Circle Kids) are now open on Sundays. Our Student gatherings have also resumed on Wednesday nights. See below for details.
We look forward to worshipping with you!
For those who remain at home during this season, we will continue to provide a well-crafted online broadcast, just for you! You can worship with us online on Sundays at 8:00/9:30/11:00A (CST). For the full, interactive experience, stream our broadcast from your phone or tablet through our 3Circle Mobile App, or at 3CircleChurch.com on your computer or mobile device. We also stream through Facebook Live and YouTube, which is sometimes preferable for devices such as Apple TV or Roku. Simply search for "3Circle Church" on YouTube or Facebook. And regardless of how you access our broadcast, be sure to follow along with our teaching notes, through the 3Circle mobile app!

Face coverings are necessary for children, 2nd grade and up. Pre-registration of children is currently required each week, allowing us to guarantee a spot for each child, in a safe and efficient manner.
