Coronavirus Update
January, 2021

Urban Hope Church Family,

We serve a victorious God and trust this communication finds you healthy and well. As national and local concern over the current spread of the coronavirus grows, we want you to know that we have been closely monitoring the reports of COVID-19 and the steps being taken to mitigate this health concern. The safety, health, and wellbeing of our church family and community at large are of the utmost importance to us.  We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and any changes that could impact us. We intend to act and respond at the advice of the public health authorities as necessary for all activities related to the church.  Here is an update of where we are at:
What are we doing:

  • We will continue to hold all scheduled services as planned. Weather it be at Urban Hope Church or online via Facebook, Youtube, our app, or our website.

  • We are asking everyone who is joining our in person services and events to wear a mask at all times. 

  • An audio and video recording of our services will be available online on Sunday afternoon immediately following service. Just select the Sermons tab at  

  • We will continue to encourage “non-contact” greeting and ushering practices

  • We will be using aggressive disinfecting practices for all touchable surfaces, including doors, counter tops, sanctuary chairs, bathroom areas and children’s areas once our new home is available!  

  • During our response time of our services, we will have alternative ways to give outside of passing the bucket.  As always, giving can happen online at our website or app just choose the Give tab. 

  • Our children's ministry will be following our standard protocols about accepting children into our classrooms, see below in the “what you can do section”.

What can you do:

  • Please stay home if you are feeling ill. This is very important, as there is no reason to share any sickness.

  • All parents please continue to abide by these standards regarding your children. 

- No fever for the last 24 hours (above 100 degrees).

- No excessive runny nose.

- No diarrhea or flu symptoms (no vomiting within the last 24 hours).

- No colds or coughs (unless allergy related).

- No contagious rashes or diseases.

- Before service the children's environment (toys, cups, etc.) will be    cleaned and disinfected.

As the CDC recommends:

- Always cover your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or tissue.

- Throw tissue away immediately after use

- Wash your hands often with soap and hot water.

- Avoid touching your hands to your face, mouth, and eyes.

- Where a mask in public spaces

When and if the situation changes we will keep you informed.  
Lastly, this is an opportunity for the church to have a positive impact on our community.  We can do this by demonstrating wisdom and caution when warranted but not taking on a spirit of fear, by literally being the light in dark times.  Be the light in your community.  

We love our church family and will be praying for you and yours.  

We look forward to worshiping with you all on Sunday,

-Pastors Adam and Natascha Kling
