Beginning this Sunday, May 3, 11:00 AM, First Assembly will begin providing a weekly Sunday Morning Drive-In Worship Service. This Sunday Morning Drive-In Service will continue each Sunday morning at 11:00 AM until the State of Virginia reopens public worship services as a congregation.
First Assembly has purchased an AM Radio Broadcast Unit which will allow you to listen to the entire worship service on your radio. The call numbers of the AM radio station will be on our church sign. The AM Radio Unit allows you to listen to the Worship Service in the safety of your car with your windows rolled up.
We will continue to post our Sunday Worship Services on Facebook, YouTube and our church Website as normal each Sunday morning at 11:00 AM. If the Drive-In Worship Service is not an option for you, you can join us as usual on Facebook, YouTube or our Website.
You are invited to a Drive-In Worship Service to be held on the parking lot of First Assembly this Saturday, April 25, 5:00 PM. We have obtained an AM Radio Broadcasting Unit which will allow you to listen to the service on an AM Radio Station. The call numbers of the radio station will be posted on our church sign. This will allow you to listen to our worship service in the privacy of your car with your windows rolled up, adding to your personal safety. (If you have ever been to the Christmas In Lights at the Bristol Motor Speedway and set your radio station as you drive through this will be very similar).
Listed below are the Virginia guidelines for a Drive-In Worship Service:
-Everyone must stay in their car (leave your car windows rolled up and listen on the AM Radio Station)
-Cars spaced 6 feet apart
-No personal contact
-A drop-off box will be available for a non-contact option to leave an offering as you exit the parking lot
Due to the forecast of heavy rain on Sunday, our Drive-In Easter Worship Service has been moved to Saturday, April 11, 5:00 PM. The service will include worship music, a sermon, and communion.
To meet the guidelines of the State of Virginia the following procedures must be followed:
-At no time can anyone leave their car
-Windows can be rolled down low enough to hear the service (it is not necessary that windows be rolled down all the way)
-Arms need to remain in the vehicle
-No talking from car to car (you can wave through the window!!)
This will insure a save and healthy worship service!
Our online Worship Service will be posted as regular at 11:00 AM Sunday morning.
In addition to our On-Line Worship Service we will be providing a Drive-In Easter Worship Service, Sunday, April 12, 11:00 AM. The service will include worship music, preaching, and communion.
To meet the social distancing requirements everyone must stay in their car (you are permitted to roll down your window). No hand shaking or touching from car to car is permitted. Communion wafer and juice will be brought to each car.
Our On-Line Easter Worship Service will be posted as regular on Facebook, YouTube and Website. Our Drive-In Worship Service will be in addition to our On-Line Worship opportunity.
