We’re committed to taking each step of regathering thoughtfully, considering those ready for change, and those not yet ready. There are opportunities to gather in person this summer, and spaces with additional precautions, as well as a continuation of our livestream.

——Our Sunday Status:

  • We are hosting full capacity services with no RSVPs needed. Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals.
    • Except at our 9am Fellowship Hall McLean service, which requires masks for all.
  • Children’s Ministry has expanded for more ages! RSVPs are still required. See details here.
    • In order to create more opportunities for children at all service times, we need volunteer help. Volunteer to help make this happen!
  • Student Ministry Sunday School has resumed in person at 10:45am in the Multi-Purpose Room.
  • Adult Education is back on-site during the 10:45am service. See class description here.

LATEST UPDATE

Starting July 11 through the rest of the summer, we are consolidating our 10:45am McLean services into the Sanctuary. There will be no 10:45am Fellowship Hall service until further notice. While space allows, we think it’s much better to worship together in one room! (Our 9am Fellowship Hall masked service will continue).

Our current worship services are:
9am Sanctuary (McLean): unlimited capacity, masks not required for those fully vaccinated
9am Fellowship Hall (McLean): unlimited capacity, masks are required for all
10:45am Sanctuary only: unlimited capacity, masks not required for those fully vaccinated

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your current safety measures? Do I have to wear a mask?
We encourage all attendees to follow CDC and VA state guidance on masking; we will not be checking any individual’s vaccination status. We are no longer social distancing during our services. We will have extra precautions in place during our 9am McLean Fellowship Hall service. At all indoor services, we are maintaining ventilation.

What safety measures are in place for kids and students?
In line with state guidance, we are asking kids and students who are not fully vaccinated to wear a face mask while participating in indoor activities. At the moment, Children’s Ministry staff and volunteers will continue to wear masks indoors per state guidance. We are closely following these guidelines and will update as they change.

When will more Children’s Ministry be available on Sundays?
We are actively expanding Children’s Church to more ages and begin to offer the nursery for our youngest ones over the next few weeks, but we are unable to do this without volunteers! Consider serving, and sign up at McLean & Fairfax to help make this happen!
