As our region and country begin the process of reopening, our staff is preparing a phased reopening plan that mirrors the strategy outlined by the government. We will start Phase 1 on May 17th, and will progress to the other stages every few weeks in accordance with the guidance from the CDC.

When will in-person gatherings resume?
As soon as possible. While we expect our phased approach to open to line up with the phases that have been laid out by the government, everything hinges on the health of our community and the CDC’s recommendations. We have to be more cautious about how we reopen due to the size of our gatherings, so we’ll likely open a little later than other local businesses and churches.
We will only advance through these phases as Gwinnett County meets the government’s benchmarks to continue reopening.
Will regular activities look different?
While we expect our in-person gatherings to feel the same when we reach Phase 4, like the rest of society, we expect that the way we interact with each other will look a little different for a while. We’re going to continue to modify the parts of our services that required physical contact before (such as passing offering buckets and greeting each other with handshakes), and we’re doing everything we can to keep our facilities clean and safe.
Even if you see more face masks (and a lot more hand sanitizer), when we gather together again in-person, we hope it will feel like coming home.
How can we gather together right now?
Our first Sunday together will be May 31st. Life Church International’s Online Platform also has several great ways to gather digitally on a weekly basis. Stay in touch with us on our social media pages, watch our mobile app for our online schedule, and make plans to join us as often as you can.
