Connect throughout the week.

In preparation for our first in-person service on September 20th, 2020, we are encouraging people to pre-register for the service. It only takes a minute and it will help us greatly as we prepare to serve you and your family. It will also help us know how many amazing cupcakes to have on hand as we celebrate 10 years of impact. You can CLICK HERE to register

What does in-person gathering look like at Rhapsody Church?

  • Temperature checks for all: You will enter through the main entrance to the YMCA. You, and all of those in your party, will be temp checked at the door. This will ensure the safety of everyone in the building. 
  • Pre-check in your kids: Use the CHURCH CENTER APP to pre-check in your kids on the way to service and then, upon arrival at the YMCA, check them in using the touch free QR code provided.
  • There will be two main areas in which to take part in the service. You can stand around one of the pub tables in the gym or have a seat in the auditorium where there will be spaced out seating for singles, couples and large families. 
  • Coffee and water will be available and will be served by a member of Rhapsody guest services.
  • Masks will be required in the building unless you are eating or drinking (same as a restaurant). The only exception to this will be for those with a medical condition prohibiting use of a mask or those on stage for the purposes of clear communication (we have distanced the chairs farther from the stage to accommodate this). 
  • We will be live streaming 🙂 Because of our commitment to support different levels of comfort currently as well as the amazing ministry opportunities our online platform has provided, we will be continuing online services. Please be attentive to the cameras set up throughout the auditorium. This has been a great, effective, part of our new reality, and we will do our best to not let them be a distraction to those in the room. 
  • It may be a little more noisy than you’re used to 🙂 Because of our heartfelt commitment to the next generation and knowing that not all parents will be comfortable sending their children to our Next Gen programming right now, we are welcoming all ages into the auditorium for service. 

Rhapsody Next Gen Update

We have missed your kids and students! When you’re ready, we look forward to seeing them on Sunday mornings again starting September 20th. For our first in-person gathering, we will offer three classes:

  • Preschool
  • 1st- 4th Grade
  • 5th-8th Grade

Our #1 goal is the safety and well being of all the children at Rhapsody, so please remember to have your child wear a mask. Also please pre-check in your kids using the CHURCH CENTER APP (CLICK HERE to download the app). CLICK HERE for step-by-step pre-check instructions.

Updated Phased Re-Entry Plan (9/16/2020)

SAFETY AND CONTEXT:

  • We seek solidarity with our community
  • We pursue the safety of our most vulnerable.  

OUR HOPE:

  • We are an effective communityRemember, church is not a place you go on Sunday mornings, it is an identity you live 24/7.

COURAGEOUS RESPONSE:

For those of us with faith and hope through Jesus, we can walk people through this time of uncertainty and be Jesus’ hands and feet.

We get to choose courage. Here are a few scripture verses that may help courage rise up in you:

  • 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
  • Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
  • Jeremiah 29:7 “But seek the welfare of the city… and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.”

I love you and I’m praying for you!
