We are now offering online and in-person gatherings! Come back when you're ready!
Three OPTIONS TO WORSHIP TOGETHER
1. CHURCH ONLINE
From now on, you'll be able to watch church online every Sunday! We are so thankful for the use of technology and the gifts of our worship teams that have allowed us to gather for church across the internet. Starting June 14, live online services times will be 9am and 10:45am. Click here to pick your stream.
2. LIFE-GROUP HOMESITES
Several Rockpoint Life Groups are already doing this! Invite your Life Group over on Sunday morning for a watch party. Tune-in to the live online service and then discuss over lunch!
3. IN-PERSON AT THE LAKE ELMO CAMPUS
We are now offering two opportunities for contact-free, outdoor, physical-distancing worship at Rockpoint Church. Services will be at 9:00am and 10:45am. We'll continue to add more times as needed. These gatherings will follow the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for church gatherings.
Reserve Your Spot!
At this time, our in-person worship services require a reservation so we can plan how to best follow MDH and CDC guidelines. Choose your service time below, and reserve spots for everyone you're bringing.
July 12 | 9 & 10:45am
Please do not feel any pressure to come! If you choose to come to these in-person services, we are committed to complying with health and safety guidelines to make every effort to protect our communities. Staff and volunteers will be strongly encouraging everyone to abide by these guidelines.
Each service will be limited to 250 people total (including staff and volunteers). You must Bring Your Own lawn chair, umbrellas, water, snacks, etc. BYOEverything. We will have a large tent set-up, with limited capacity, on a first-come, first-served basis for those who have RSVP'd. See below for more detailed FAQs
The safety of our Rockpoint family is a high priority. If you have been sick or in contact with someone who is/was sick, we respectfully require that you continue to worship with us online.
What About Kids & Students Programs?
Sunday morning kids programs are postponed until July 19. If you choose to join us in person, your kids will sit and worship with you. Rockpoint Kids regathering details are coming and will be on their web page. Students are moving into their summer schedule which you can find here.
What if it Rains?
It all depends on the severity of rain. For heavy rains, we will cancel outdoor services. Light or intermittent rain will be played by ear.
Should We Wear Masks?
For outdoor worship, masks will not be required. Please use your best judgement based on your level of comfort. Remember, our priority is safety.
