Dear House of Prayer Family:
We pray Psalm 27 over you: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
As your Pastors we wanted to assure you that we are committed to you and your family’s safety during this time.
We miss you and your presence! We can’t wait to welcome you back to your House of Worship which is why we are doing everything we can to make sure that we phase in our service attendance and programs in good way that is safe for all. We are prayerfully making diligent plans to relaunch our worship experience in a manner that is physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy.
Please know that HOP Church is at the forefront of protecting the health of our family and staff. We are sanitizing rooms and public spaces; we have added cleaning staff who are using hospital-grade, virus-killing solutions; we are practicing physical distancing in all public spaces and strategic transitional directional patterns (entry and exit) and we are requiring masks to be worn.
In addition to HOP campus safety, we have expanded our security protocols for COVID-19 to include properly screening anyone entering campus, which includes temperature taking and hand sanitizing.
Along with using common sense and following the recommendations of government and health officials, we will continue to do what we have always done: pray and trust God to help us make wise decisions that will protect HOP community and keep everyone safe.
As your Pastors we are committed to you to promote a physically safe, spiritually vibrant, and wholesome atmosphere where all can worship the Lord our God.
We are looking to slowly transition to Phase 1 of re-opening for our main campus. Phase one will consist of 2 English Services at 9am and 10:30 am and 1 Spanish service at 12pm with a 100 person capacity maximum. Attendance will require pre-registration. We have tentatively set a Phase 1 re-open date for Father’s Day, June 21, 2020. Details will be forthcoming, so please stay tuned to the HOP website.
Additionally, we are asking the following to remain at home:
- Our seniors of 65 years and older who are at a higher risk
- Persons not feeling well or still recovering and have a fever
- Persons of all ages with underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, including:
- People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
- People who have serious heart conditions
- People who are immunocompromised
Please know that our prayers are with you and we believe we are going to see God work in amazing ways in the days ahead!
Keep Rejoicing! Rejoice always in the Lord and again I say Rejoice. For we know that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.
