VHC Re-opening Plan - Effective May 31, 2020

Village Hope Church has re-opened our campuses for in-person worship services as of May 31, 2020.  Below are important details regarding changes that have allowed us to re-open safely.  Please know that if you are not comfortable returning in person, our online video services will continue for the foreseeable future.  Above all we want you to feel safe and welcomed when you choose to return to one of our campuses.

  •  Both campuses resume a one-hour program

    • Parma – 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

    • Jackson – 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

      • No 9:00 a.m. hour

      • No children’s ministry

      • Nursery available for use by parent with child but not staffed

    • Life Groups can resume in-person gatherings, taking necessary health precautions

    • Youth Group can resume in-person gatherings (summer schedule) taking necessary health precautions

    • GRATIS store may re-open provided the state has allowed other similar retail establishments to re-open, and required/necessary health precautions are taken for volunteers

  • COVID-19 avoidance measures at our campus locations:

    • If you have experienced ANY symptoms of COVID-19 within the past three weeks (cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, unexpected muscle pain, sore throat, loss of taste or smell) DO NOT COME TO CHURCH.  We love you, and we appreciate your commitment to VHC, but for your safety and the safety of our church family, we cannot allow you to enter the building.

    • Out of consideration for those within our church family who are at an elevated risk for COVID-19,  we strongly recommend (and prefer) that you wear a mask when you attend a worship service with us, unless there is an underlying medical reason that would prevent you from doing so.

    •  “Social Distancing” is encouraged (just use common sense when interacting with one another)

    • To avoid cross-contamination, we will not be passing offering baskets/plates

      • Please continue to use our online giving options for regular giving

      • In-person tithes/offerings can also be dropped in a secure container located in the worship center.

    • Café Hope remains closed for now so that we can avoid pro-longed exposure in a confined area.  Café Hope will re-open at a future date.

    • Lord’s Supper/Communion will be observed in a manner that does not require the elements to pass through the congregation
