 We’re Back Together!

We are back! The RELAUNCH of on-campus gatherings started on the weekend of June 6 and 7! Here’s what’s new:

All 3 of our services are back to normal – Saturdays, at 6 PM we have Country Church, and Sundays, at 9 AM we have our Blended Service and at 10:45 AM we have our Modern Worship Service style!

We encourage you to observe social distancing while on the church campus and will arrange the worship center seating to help out with that.

What if I’m not ready to return to in-person gatherings, how can I stay connected?

You’re Not Alone. And We’re Here to Help!

If you don’t feel comfortable returning to an in-person worship service, that is totally fine! We will continue to offer our online service time at 9 AM and 10:45 AM on Sunday mornings. Indian Rocks’ Pastors and team members are ready to greet you, pray with you, and help you stay connected! If you are looking to get connected into an online Life Group, you can contact Tom Owen in the Church Office at (727) 595-3421, or by clicking the button below.

LIMITED SEATING

To encourage social distancing, we are color-coding the rows of the Worship Center to allow for different rows per service so that there is no contact with seats that haven’t been sanitized yet. This allows us 50% capacity for every service.

TOUCHLESS ENVIRONMENT

Our weekly bulletin will be available online, and offering plates will not be passed. Giving boxes will be located at each of the Worship Center entrances as well as the outdoor drop-box.

MASKS

Based on the Pinellas County Ordinance that went into effect on June 24, 2020 at 5 PM, we are now asking that anyone, 18 years of age or older, wear a face-covering while entering and exiting the interior spaces of the church campus.
