The Good Hope family has been gathering in bible studies, small groups, and for online worship since mid-March. Now, we’re looking forward to our first stop on the Roadmap To Reunion by gathering in person beginning with Reunion Weekend on May 31!
In-person worship services will begin at Good Hope the weekend of May 31. The following schedule will be in place each weekend for the foreseeable future.
Good Hope will follow recommended social distancing when our in-person services begin. As we stay up-to-date on the latest guidelines and requirements issued by local and state officials and healthcare professionals, we will update this information. Please see FAQs below for additional information.
Worship services will continue online each Sunday. On May 31, we will begin offering an outdoor service in addition to the online service.
The leadership of Good Hope has sought the counsel of officials, the comfort level of our people, and the leadership of the Lord as they made decisions about when to retune to in-person services.
All decisions have been made under careful consideration and adherence to the recommendations from the NC Governor’s Office and NC DHHS.
During the week of May 3, we conducted at Good Hope At Home Survey. Your responses to this survey helped us better understand where everyone was at in terms of reopening our facilities. Church leaders have read through these responses and used that to help guide, in addition to local and state officials, us in what is best for Good Hope.
NC Department of Health and Human Services recommends that individuals over 65 years of age or those with weakened immune systems avoid large groups of people as much as possible. We ask church members to prayerfully consider how to respond to this request.
Yes! We welcome children and families to attend. The outdoor service will be shorter (30-40 minutes). We will have no childcare or children’s ministry activities. Restrooms will be available. Please remember, all children will need to stay with their family during all times. Please accompany your child into the building if restrooms are needed.
During our outdoor service, you are encouraged to bring your own chair to use in the parking lot. While in the parking lot seating area, and on campus, we need to abide by social distancing rules.
At this time, masks will not be required. We would encourage you to wear a mask while on campus. This may change based on local and state government regulations.
Yes, our cleaning crew has a process in place for cleaning our buildings each week.
Our in-person worship service will be held at 9:00 AM on the Good Hope Campus, see the image below for more information on parking and seating areas. We will also continue to stream a live service from inside the Family Life Center (FLC). This service will be streamed only and no in-person seating will be available on campus.
9AM In-Person Service
During this service, Pastor Paul Jimenez will deliver a message and we will be led in music. This service will be abbreviated and will be shorter than our normal Sunday Morning Gathering.
10:30AM Online Worship
This service will be the same as the services we have been streaming. You can expect an expositional message from Pastor Paul and music led by the Good Hope Worship Team.
While we place a high priority on gathering together as the church for worship and other activities, and we always want you to feel welcome at Good Hope, if you are feeling sick or running a fever, the best way that you can love your neighbor is by staying home! If you need to stay home instead of coming to a worship gathering, we encourage you to worship online with us through streaming our services at goodhopechurch.org. If you believe that you or a family member have or have been exposed to the coronavirus (COVID-19), please inform our church office.
