Welcome Home, New City!

Welcome Home, New City!

Welcome Home, New City!

We have missed seeing you in person each week as you are a key part of what makes New City so special. As we enter this new season together, things will look different than they did in early March, and that's because we want to do everything we can to keep you and the broader community safe and healthy. Below is an overview of what to expect.

Seat Reservations

We will have reduced worship center capacity at all of our locations to enable physically distanced seating and ensure a safe worship environment. You will need to reserve seat(s) for you and your family at any service you plan to attend. Reservations will be live each Tuesday at 9:00 am here on this page, and we'll email you the links each week.

August 30 at 6:00 pm

Beginning on August 9, these are our new times for worship services at each of our locations.

*In an effort to provide a safe worship environment with limited capacity, this service is designed for those who have historically participated in Traditions. This service includes hymn-style music and meets in room W-1.

Service Check-In

Upon arrival, you and your family will check in using the confirmation you will receive following your reservation at our touchless stations. We recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to your service time to check in.

 

Mask Requirement

To comply with state guidelines, we kindly ask that if you choose to attend a New City service, plan for every member of your party over the age of 11 to wear a mask. We will have masks available should you need some.

 

New Cleaning Standards

To ensure a safe and healthy worship environment, each of our locations is enacting new cleaning and sanitation standards, including touchless fixtures, enhanced cleaning protocols between services, HVAC updates, and a special non-toxic anti-microbial solution that eliminates 99.9% of surface germs.

 

Family Worship

Your family will be able to worship together at each New City service. Our NextGen team will have worship activity kits on hand to ensure your younger members stay engaged during service. You can also continue watching the online NextGen Sunday Experience programming, which will still be updated weekly. We are evaluating when we will be able to safely begin in-person NextGen programming. 


New City Online

We also recognize that you may not yet be comfortable with regathering at this time, and we understand that there are ongoing health concerns and special circumstances. Fortunately, we plan to continue sharing full worship experiences through New City Online to ensure that everyone can be included in the life of our church during this season and beyond. Please know that whatever your decision right now, you remain a valued part of the New City family, and we look forward to the day when we can worship alongside you in person again.
