Church Online & COVID-19 Updates

Re-Opening

May 31st - Sunday 10am

Deciding to Attend

We know the timing of your first return to in-person services will be different for everyone. Our online service and KidsQuest will continue at the regular times Sunday morning for those who are not yet comfortable or unable to join in-person.

If you meet any of the following conditions, please join us for the online service:

  • if your health is particularly at-risk* from exposure to COVID-19.
  • if you are sick or have been around anyone who is sick in the past 14 days.
  • if you have small children who find it difficult to sit through a service.
  • if you are more comfortable worshiping at home for right now.
*The governor has defined the at-risk population as “those who are 65 or older, especially those with chronic lung disease; moderate to severe asthma; chronic heart disease; severe obesity; diabetes; chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis; liver disease; or weakened immune system

What to Expect

We’ve tried to make the service as “normal” as possible while minimizing the chance of spreading the virus and abiding by the Governor’s guidelines for worship services. Here are some of the differences you’ll notice:

  • It'll take a little longer than normal to get seated, so plan to arrive a little early.
  • No coffee or food will be served, but you're welcome to bring your own drinks.
  • Some people will be wearing masks and/or gloves, and some will not. You are welcome to bring and wear a mask or gloves.
  • There will be no Children's Ministry or Nursery. Your kids are very welcome, but they must sit with your family under your control.
  • Your household can sit together or two people not of the same household can sit next to each other. There must be two empty chairs separating each group.
  • Offering plates will not be passed around. Please find the offering stations set up in the Living Room at each exit.

What We Ask of You

  • Do not attend if any member of your household has tested positive for COVID-19, has any symptoms of COVID-19, or has been around anyone who is sick or tested positive in the past 14 days.
  • As you enter, please either sanitize (stations provided) or wash your hands.
  • Please maintain at least 6 feet separation from others not in your household. Please refrain from hand-shaking, hugging, or other physical contact.
  • Be sure you are in Planning Center Online system (see Check-In Process below).
  • Use Church Center App to check in (see Check-In Process below).

The Check-In Process

  • Make sure you are in
    Planning Center

This is the same system we currently use for Children and Youth check-in, Children’s Ministry Worker and Worship/Tech Team Scheduling.

If you know you are already in Planning Center, continue to Check-in with Church Center.

  • Check In with Church Center

Once you are in Planning Center, you can pre-check in to service as early as 8am Sunday morning. This will be done for each service you attend.

Download on Apple App Store   Download on Google Play Store

Everyone will need to use the Church Center App to check in to the service. (Bonus: this app will be a great way to pre-check in your kids in the near future!)

Once you pre-check via Church Center, you will have a QR Code that will be scanned at a kiosk in the foyer, which will officially check you and your household in to the service.

For those without a smart device, you can register and check in on-site at the registration kiosk in the foyer.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience. This will greatly speed up the check-in process while keeping your safety in mind.

We’d love to have you worship with us at New Life Church this Sunday!


COVID-19 is highly contagious and is known to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. By attending New Life Church in person, you voluntarily assume the risk that you and/or your family may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 while on church property.

Help us protect you and those around you today. Please do not enter the church building if, within the past 14 days, any member of your party has tested positive for COVID-19, has any symptoms of COVID-19, or has been around anyone who is sick or has tested positive.

Tips from the CDC

The CDC has issued practical ways that you can mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus – should there be any future cases in Texas or if you travel to places where there are cases of the virus:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are not feeling well.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your forearm when coughing and sneezing.
  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds at a time. Use soap and water when possible.
  • If no soap and water are available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.
  • For the next several months, use your faith and wisdom, but consider giving your friends a wave or elbow bump rather than shaking hands or hugging one another.
  • On the practical side -- we encourage you to prepare now for any potential issues with supply chains or in the event of any spread or unexpected quarantines. We recommend everyone at New Life Church prepare by doing the following:
  • Be sure to refill your important prescription medicines and keep extra Tylenol or Motrin on hand.
  • Keep 14-21 days of essentials on hand -- things like disinfectants, water, paper products and non-perishable food.
