Outdoor Worship Service

As we continue to abide by CDC and local guidelines, starting April 4, 2021, we will begin to hold outdoor worship services in addition to our weekly, 10:30 a.m. virtual services. While we look forward to eventually gathering indoors, we believe that holding outdoor services is a good and wise next step for our church. There is no registration required to attend our outdoor services.

What is going to happen to our 10:30 a.m. virtual Sunday services?

While virtual Sunday services can not fully substitute the physical gathering of the congregation for worship, we want to continue to provide our 10:30 a.m. virtual services on YouTube for those who do not feel comfortable meeting in-person.

When and where will the outdoor services take place?

We will gather every Sunday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Conshohocken Discipleship Church located on 80 Cedar Grove Rd., Conshocken PA 19428. There is ample parking behind and around the building. In the case all spots are taken, there is additional parking next door (~3 minute walk) at Cedar Grove Park on 100 Cedar Grove Rd.

What should I bring and prepare?

We ask everyone to come prepared by wearing masks with the exceptions of those listed under our state and county’s mask guidelines (i.e., less than 2 yrs. old). There will be extra masks and hand sanitizers at the welcoming table.

Because there will not be chairs provided, please bring chairs or blankets and situate yourself at least 6 feet away from other congregants outside of your family. Most importantly, please come with ready hearts to worship!

Will there be childcare?

We will not be able to provide childcare at this time. We encourage children to sit with the parents during the entire service. We will also continue to have children gather virtually every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. via Zoom for their lessons. Please email Samantha Kim for instructions on how to join at children@renewalmainline.org.

Will there be access to restrooms?

The church building will not be openly accessible. However, for those who need to use the restroom, you can request for a key at the welcoming table to access the restroom.

How will I be able to follow along with praise and the liturgy?

A bulletin including the liturgy and songs will be available at the welcoming table.

What will we do if there is inclement weather?

If weather prohibits us from gathering outside safely, we will cancel our outdoor service and encourage everyone to worship with us virtually at 10:30 a.m. via YouTube accessed from our homepage. To be notified of cancellations, please sign up for our text messaging system by texting RENEWAL to 1 (877) 978-2573. We will notify everyone early Sunday morning if we will be cancelling our outdoor service.
