Immediate COVID UPDATE: September 6, 2021
Update: 8/26/21, RETHINK CHURCH….
At The Pointe… Together we are “The Church” (Inside, outside, in person or online!) We are not about the “how”… We are all about the “who”… And that means “You!” In the current environment it’s tough to predict conditions… as you know! (Covid, Weather, Smoke… etc!) As we move forward the Church Board and leaders of The Pointe are united and in agreement. We want to encourage our Church Body to focus on being safe and flexible. As you know, we have no idea what to expect from week to week. What we do know is:
- ✅We will meet as long as we are allowed to.
- ✅We are going to keep the time at 10 am.
- ✅We prefer outside, for as long as we can.
- ✅We will move inside if we need to.
So, please come prepared with your lawn chair and mask! If the conditions of the weather or smoke is an issue, we will move inside! Please note: We are asking everyone to be sensitive to the vulnerable in our mix by masking up! (Love your neighbor as yourself!) Our official Protocol on Masks:
- ✅Required Inside the building
- ✅ Recommended outside
PS… Be on the lookout for some fun and creative, Sunday Morning Surprises! You are not gonna want to miss even one week!

Sacramento County has issued an “Indoor Mask Mandate” which we must abide by! One of our own Pointe Healthcare Professionals informed us that our local Hospitals are now on “Critical Level 4” status, beds are full of Covid patients. The hospitals have gone back to the protocols in the height of the pandemic last year including no visitors. We are getting reports that several Churches locally and nationwide have had major outbreaks causing much sickness and even loss. They have become known “super spreaders.”
Out of an abundance of Caution and a desire to love and protect our Church Family and friends, we have made the following plans:
- No Kids Ministry until further notice, but fun and creative “Wiggle Folders” are Available!
- Please Practice all CDC Protocols Please Avoid Hugging & Handshakes. A smile will do… from 6 ft away!
- No Coffee or Food Provided. (Donut Shop is Open Next Door)
We will also providing a live stream REBROADCAST option for those concerned about “high risk” issues… at Online.ThePointe.net right at 10 am on Sundays and the replay will air on Thurs night at 7 pm. Please continue to check this page for updates!
Thursday Nights at 7:00 PM online.thepointe.net (Recap of the Live Sunday Before)
KEEPING IT ALL IN PERSPECTIVE:
Just a reminder: Many of us really enjoyed our intimate time of outdoor worship before, and look forward to it again! Church is Church, no matter where we gather. However, it is human nature to be creatures of habit…. And many of us don’t like “change!” But… To quote a local chaplain: When faced with life’s unexpected situations we must remember “It only becomes what we make of it!” We each can choose to either “enjoy” or “endure” or “even disappear” because of these changes, the choice is really up to “YOU!” But Choose wisely! Just remember, the enemy would love for you to spin out, or get angry and get all side-tracked. Keep the main point the main point! We are a Church, whether, inside or outside at home or in the building. We are in this together and we will be stronger if we stay close to the heart of the Lord and take care of each other as we go through it!
Hebrews 10:25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
