ONLY IF YOU  ARE READY - We pray that you will not feel pressured to return to in-person worship until you are ready! There is no hurry and no rush if you do not feel comfortable returning yet. 

OPEN AIR TENT - We will add an outdoor worship service on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. beginning Sunday, September 6th. We will have a 40 x 40 large tent in the grass next to the parking lot. This tent is designed to hold 175 -200 people under normal seating conditions, so it will easily hold around 85 - 100 people while providing space to social distance. We will have chairs available, or you can bring your own lawn chair. We will encourage families to sit together and enjoy worshipping together in this in-person worship experience. 

IN-CAR - We will also provide a limited number of spaces along the edge of the tent for parked cars. The service will be broadcast to an FM radio station, so you can tune in and enjoy from your car. We would like to make this available for our most vulnerable population. There will be more details to follow, but we wanted you to know that this is happening!

IN-ADDITION - This tent will also allow our student ministry a great space for their in-person gatherings. Our school will have access to it during the week, along with Little Lambs. Our Life Groups, which will be starting up again soon can use it during the evenings to meet together in person if they would like. There will be other ministry opportunities that this tent will provide for us in a safe and responsible way to continue to meet together.


BEGINS SEPTEMBER  6TH / 9:30 am -- 
I’ve received a letter from Governor DeWine that was sent to all churches late last week.  In the letter, he reminded us that religious services have been exempt from any regulations, however, we have chosen not to meet out of care for you and our community.  In the letter, the Governor also reiterated best practices for when we do begin meeting together. 

When we return, we will be following the Governor's best practices. 

One of the studies the Governor cited in his letter mentioned that the safest way to meet was outside. As a result, and with a desire to offer an opportunity for in-person worship to those who wish to do so, we have designed a strategy to move ahead with in-person worship . . . outside.  

continued online worship

Sat. 6pm / sun. 8, 9:30 and 11am

We will continue to provide four (4) online worship services, just like we have been doing since the beginning of this pandemic. These services are available on our live streaming platform at on Saturdays at 6:00 pm, Sundays at 8:00 am, 9:30 am and 11:00 am. The Sunday services are also available on the ShepNaz Facebook page at the same time. We are committed to making our online campus a priority and a quality worship experience. We view our online worship experiences on the same level as our in-person worship experience.
