Reopening Plan

We are excited to announce that Lansdale Life Church will be able to return to Dock Mennonite Academy on June 28th, 2020 to resume our Sunday services! We cannot wait to be able to see all of you again!

Here is what you need to know as we plan for our return!

Sunday Worship Services

We are resuming our Sunday worship services live at Dock Mennonite Academy. Our service will start at 10AM. Fellowship time will be held outside of the building. No coffee and pretzels will be provided. We will be practicing “social distancing” guidelines during the service.

Children’s Ministry

We will not be providing any Children’s Ministry during the Sunday service at this time. However, children are welcome to be a part of the worship and message in the auditorium. In the meantime, our Children’s Ministry leaders will continue serving our children with their Wednesday Night Connection from 6:00-6:30PM on zoom. Wednesday Night Connection will be held in person on 7/1, 7/15, 8/5, and 8/19 from 7PM-8:15PM at 407 N. Broad St., Lansdale.

Livestream

We will continue to offer livestream for Sunday services for those who do not feel comfortable participating in group worship at this time. For those with health challenges or otherwise compromised immune systems, it is wise to exercise caution and avoid groups. Our worship service will continue to be livestreamed to facilitate your worship with us while you’re at home.

Face Masks

In response to the most frequently asked question, yes, face masks will be expected. Not only is this currently a state order, but as Christians, we will wear our masks out of respect for the health and safety of others, regardless of our personal opinions about this issue. However, some people are unable to wear a mask for personal health reasons and, according to the Order of the Secretary of the PA Department of Health, are not required to wear a mask. While we realize that there are many opinions about this issue, we will expect masks to be worn, but we will not require those with medical restrictions to do so.

Facility

Steps will be taken to have fresh air throughout the building. Exhaust fans will be running to exchange the air through the building every few minutes. As well as leaving windows open to allow fresh air to flow directly to those in attendance. Seating will be arranged to allow for social distancing. 

Compliance

The details about the way in which we operate on Sunday morning are compliant with Federal, State and Local guidelines, including the CDC’s most recent “Guidance For Communities of Faith.”

Our Public Witness

While we understand the desire to fellowship with one another, we ask that you distance yourself in the parking lot, in order to provide a good witness for passersby. We want our witness to show that we are exercising our right to assemble and worship without appearing to defy the Governor’s orders. 

Please Be Patient With Us

We have never been down this road before, and we want to navigate it carefully. We realize that many of these plans are quite different from our normal church culture. However, as the next few weeks pass and the State begins to loosen up on its restrictions, we have little doubt we’ll be able to return to something more closely resembling the culture we all love.
