              Open to CELEBRATE God’s goodness, grace and love

                                            in PERSON again!
 
We have exciting, wonderful news – VHCC will be reopening our building again for live, in person worship THIS SUNDAY, May 31!  Thank you for all the great feedback on our church survey that overwhelmingly showed us that you will be here when the doors open.  In compliance with State and County guidelines a plan has been crafted to allow in person worship to happen in our building that helps limit the risk to those in attendance and those serving.  (If you’d like to add your voice to the survey follow this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DQ5STBS or go to our website and click the button that says “SURVEY.”)

OUR PLAN – (Based on requirements set by L.A. County Department of Health)

●   To comply with the limit of 100 people in attendance we have decided to have three services starting at 8:00 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 am, we expect them to be just short of an hour to allow 30 minutes between services for safe arrivals and exits and cleaning.  For the next few weeks, we will not have any mingling, greeting or social times before or after services.  (Live streaming of the service will continue.)

●   We strongly encourage anyone who is at risk or who may not be ready to attend in person to continue participating in our live stream services.  Live stream will coincide with our new starting times of 8 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 am.

●   We ask anyone who has symptoms of a cold, flu, has a temperature above 100.4 Fahrenheit or who have been in contact with anyone who has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19 to enjoy our services from the comfort of your own home via livestream and protect yourself and others by doing so.

●   Masks must be worn by all who attend (LA COUNTY and STATE REQUIREMENT).  Pastors and band members will not be required to wear masks while speaking or leading in worship.  Masks will be supplied at the door if you forgot yours.

●   Social distancing of 6 feet must be maintained at all times by persons not related or in the same household.  Please choose seating that will accommodate the social distancing requirement.

●   Please follow the directives to maintain one-way traffic in the building by entering through the children’s ministry door and exiting through the double glass doors in the lobby.  (If you require handicapped parking you may still enter and exit through the lobby doors).

●   We suggest frequent hand washing for 20 seconds or more with soap and water or the using of hand sanitizer.  Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building. 

●   For the time being there will be NO children’s ministry, nursery, greeting time, donuts or coffee, no bulletins or message maps (message map is available to see or download on our web-site) and water fountains will be turned off.  No other ministry will happen on our campus during the week other than our offices being open for pastors and staff.
 
●    Our building has been professionally deep cleaned, sanitized and disinfected.  During the 30 minutes between services we will clean and disinfect all common areas including the sanctuary, wiping down all hard surfaces, door handles and cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting restrooms.

If you have concerns that have not been addressed above or questions that we have not covered, please email David@valenciahills.com

We cannot tell you how much joy this message gives the pastors and staff to send to you,  and how much we look forward to seeing your cheerful smiling faces in the seats again. 
 
In Christ,
Pastor Dennis
