On Sunday, the 13th of September, our Elder board unanimously agreed to resume indoor worship gatherings as of this coming Sunday (9/20/2020). There are numerous practical reasons this decision has been reached. However, the most important reasons for moving inside are biblical and theological. We'd invite you to read a full description and defense of our decision here.
For those members of Doxa who are not ready to resume indoor gatherings, we want to extend grace, understanding, and compassion. We realize this news will be received very differently by different people. We will continue to live stream our first service, and we will work hard to ensure those remaining away from the physical gathering are still included in the ministry of the church in every reasonable way. We ask for the same grace, understanding, and compassion in return as we seek to honor the Lord in this process and decision.
For those prepared to meet indoors on Sunday, we are returning to 9am and 11am services. We are asking you to register so that we can anticipate the number joining in each service. There are no attendance caps, and we will have Kids Discipleship available for children ages 0-3 during the 9am service only. Parents are welcome and encouraged to bring children of all ages into the services.
Lastly, please exercise personal responsibility when evaluating your health (or your children's health) before attending a Doxa worship service. It is essential in this season that we care for one another and take a cautious approach to our physical health before gathering for worship. See you Sunday!
Registration is no longer required for our Sunday services
