On Thursday, May 28, our pastors sent out a family update email with news about our New City Gathering Phases for the coming months. You can watch the video update here:
In looking forward to the summer of 2020 and beyond, our executive leadership team, elder board, and staff worked together to create a plan to guide our decisions about gathering. This process included input from New City Leaders and healthcare professionals, coordination with other local and national churches, extensive professional reading, consultations with local partner leaders and authorities, and feedback from New City Leaders.
As we move through the coming weeks, we will continue to make updates here if plans shift. On May 29, 2020, we will enter the Purple Phase.
Overview of Phases of Gathering
We have identified these phases by color and defined them according to particular recommendations with corresponding New City decisions, rather than setting out a timeline. We assume that the evolving COVID-19 situation will remain fluid in the coming months, and with each phase, we will monitor closely and remain ready to shift to another appropriate phase given the environment around us.
This table summarizes the main points from each of the phases of gathering. (Click image to enlarge.)
