We ask that you follow the basic COVID-19 prevention protocols of wearing a mask when inside the building, washing your hands often, staying socially-distanced, not attending if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, have been exposed and you don't know your status, or have been diagnosed as positive within the last 14 days.
There are some alterations being made to traffic flow inside the building and normal operations in order for us to continue to gather safely as we welcome groups back to campus. Please read below and feel free to contact us at 757-461-3226 or email us with any questions.
Gather with your church family in the Worship Center. Volunteers will help you find a seat in a responsible, socially-distanced way. You'll be seated in a section based on where you enter the lobby. Families will sit together. We are no longer asking for registration to attend Worship.
The Fellowship Hall is the new meeting location for our Children’s LIFEgroups! For this reason, we are no longer using it for families with young children during the worship hours. The Family Room on the Preschool hallway is available for this purpose.
We have 2 family rooms available for you if you have little ones with you and you need to leave the worship center to attend to their needs. The Parlor is located off of the lobby and Room 128 is on the Preschool Hall.
We are excited to announce that Preschool, Children, Student, and some adult LIFEgroups are back in person. If you are comfortable having your family return, welcome back! If you prefer to continue to worship or meet with your group online, we celebrate that too! We will continue supporting those who meet with us virtually both for worship and groups. Preschool and Children’s LIFEgroup materials are made available weekly. Click here for Preschool and here for Children’s to access at home materials. We are working to ensure Students and Adults have the ability to participate through either medium, even if your group is meeting in-person.
Preschool, Children, and Student groups meet at 9AM only. Adult groups that meet in-person are meeting either at 9AM or 11AM. Your group leader will let you know if an on-campus option is available to your group and where the new meeting takes place.
Reserved Senior Adult spaces and 5 handicapped spaces are located on the North side. A few dozen handicapped spaces are available on the South side along Kempsville Road. There is ample parking available. All of our lots are restored from the construction work and available for our use. We will not be operating shuttles from remote parking locations such as Fortis College and Cross Roads Center. If you have preschoolers (birth-Kindergarten), park near the East entrance or North Courtyard. Children are meeting in the Fellowship Hall, so park in the North parking area.

We are taking steps inside the building to help keep people safe. Doors will be propped open, seating will be marked to facilitate social distancing, and ample hand-sanitizing stations are available. Please wear a face covering, if you don't have one, we can provide one for you. Our team sanitizes and cleans between gatherings.
