With the heightened awareness and public concerns regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as the ongoing seasonal flu and cold activity, we want to assure you that public health and safety concerns are our highest priority. We are listening closely to public health officials and will provide updates regarding any changes to HighRidge Church services, as needed.
In line with Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, we encourage those who don’t feel well to stay home. HighRidge Church will live-stream services for the upcoming weeks so that you may enjoy worship services in your home if you are ill. Look for these live-steams on our social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram).
For those attending services on-campus, we will be greeting you at the door with a big smile and warm greeting, minus the handshakes. In services, we will ask that you greet your friends and neighbors the same, saving high fives, hugs and handshakes for another day. Thank you for your understanding! We are intentional about providing clean environments for people to meet and worship God. We are increasing the frequency of our cleaning protocols, and wiping down shared surfaces (doorknobs, countertops, faucets etc…) between services and in our Kid’s Ministry. Additionally, we will clean our children’s hands with anti-bacterial wipes before entering classrooms, and sanitize toys, tables and surfaces in the children’s areas between services.
As always, make use of the hand sanitizer dispensers located in several areas around campus.
Continue to pray for those affected, for healing and protection, for our leaders, for our nation and the world. Remember that our hope and faith are in the Lord. We do not need to be afraid, but keep using wisdom and continue faithing forward as we walk through this challenge.
