As we continue on our Roadmap To Reunion, it's time to pull over for a short period.
In response to a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the greater Houston area and advisories from local and state leaders related to large group gatherings, Houston's First is temporarily suspending in-person worship services and Life Bible Studies at all of our campuses for the weekends of June 27 & 28 and July 4 & 5.
Church leaders leaned on the same decision-making model that was used to begin our in-person services in late May, taking into consideration the leadership of the Lord, counsel of officials, and the comfort level of our church family.
While we're pulled over on those two weekends, you can still gather online for worship services on Sundays at 9a, 11a, and 5p.
As with any road trip, we're still headed to our ultimate destination of having everybody together again on campus. For now, we just need to pull over for this brief stop along the way!
The Houston's First family has gathered online since the quarantine began in mid-March — for Sunday worship services, Nights of Prayer, Life Bible Studies, and special events. On May 30 & 31 we had Reunion Weekend — the first stop on the Roadmap To Reunion. That weekend, in-person worship services returned to each campus while we also continued to worship online, too.
In-person worship services returned to each campus the weekend of May 30 & 31. The following modified schedule is in place each week for the foreseeable future. See the FAQs for more about our worship services.
Seating in the worship services is limited for now to allow for social distancing. Therefore, we're asking you to save a seat at the worship service you plan to attend each week.
Houston's First is following other recommended social distancing guidelines during our in-person services. See the FAQs below for additional information.
Worship services continue to be available online every Sunday at 9a, 11a, and 5p.
Life Bible Studies continue to meet online. No date has been set for when these groups will begin gathering in person on our campuses.
Pastor Gregg and church leaders sought the counsel of officials, the comfort level of our people, and the leadership of the Lord as they made decisions about when to return to in-person services.
