Important Church Reopening Information Below
Good news from the Altoona Alliance church. After meeting together virtually for the last few months, we have reopened the doors of our building!!
For those who do not yet feel comfortable attending public services, or who are not able to attend due to health reasons, you can watch via Zoom and Facebook live at 8 am or anytime afterwards on our Facebook Page. Our 7:00 pm Wednesday night Upper Room Prayer Meeting is now meeting in person as well as our 6:30pm Sunday Night Bible Study.
Our approach to reopening our physical facilities is to be marked by love and thoughtfulness. We recognize that there are varying feelings about public gatherings and we want to respect other congregants and visitors by our safe, cautious approach. We are #CallingU2Family by emphasizing the aspects of our family that bring us together.
When we meet, we will be following directives from the governor and CDC in order to offer a safe environment for people to gather and worship. We don’t want anyone to be uncomfortable coming together to worship. We recommend wearing masks inside, if possible. We have changed seating in the worship center to make it easier for people to stay 6 feet apart. We recommend avoiding hugs and handshakes (for now). Hand sanitizer will be available, and surfaces cleaned.
Youth group and Sunday School restarted at the church on June 14. Children’s Church and Nursery is available at 10:45am for those who are comfortable with that. Watch for announcements about outdoor summer small groups, church family nights, and other events.
We do not feel this is a time to be fearful, but it is a time to show love by being careful. Careful, not fearful. If you have any questions about our plans, please e-mail or call the office.
