Arizona Campus Relaunch
It’s time! As I pray to discern God’s will for our church family during these extraordinary times, these two words – “it’s time” – kept resonating in my spirit. I sensed they formed the substance of where God is taking us, and they are the theme of this season at Dream City Church. I invite you to join me as you consider how God may be speaking to you personally surrounding the words, “It’s time.”
We cannot wait to welcome you back to in-person services at all our Arizona Campuses beginning this Sunday, August 2nd. And, great news… Kids and Youth will resume meeting, too!
Please do your part to keep people safe by observing these best practices:
- Do not attend if you are sick.
- Maintain social distancing (at least 6’) whenever possible.
- Wash hands and utilize hand-sanitizing stations.
- Minimize crowd congestion in high traffic areas.
- Refrain from handshakes, hugs, high-fives, and other physical contact.
- Masks are encouraged whenever social distancing is not possible.
I hope you know how much Angel and I love each one of you. We look forward with eager anticipation to seeing what God does next in you!
