MEALS (an hour break)
After registering, you will receive an additional email asking you to select one of three meal options. If you do not respond to this email you will be on your own for lunch.
We are providing 3 Food Options:
- For $6 per meal, you can sign up to enjoy a hot, fresh, home-cooked meal onsite that includes a hot protein, veggies, potatoes, a roll, and dessert. Coffee, bottled water, lemonade, and cans of soda will be included in this price as well!
- You can partake in a variety of fast food options nearby. Here is a list of suggested restaurants in the area.
- You can bring your own lunch. However, due to the size of the event, we are not able to refrigerate your lunch for you. Please plan accordingly.
In terms of this gathering taking place during the pandemic, we will continue to monitor the situation regularly between now and the event. Obviously, no one knows what the world will look like in October.
At this point, we are planning on serving a meal each day while providing plenty of space for everyone to spread out in multiple rooms to accommodate extra space. We will also provide restaurant suggestions in the area and we will allow attendees to bring their own lunch as well, yet we will NOT be able to allow access to the kitchen, freezer, or refrigerator. Please plan accordingly.
The Mission Church has taken the position of respecting each person (or family) in terms of their personal freedoms. Therefore, masks will NOT be required but masks will be provided at each entrance and anyone that wants to wear a mask has the freedom to do so. We will have extra hand sanitizer stations around the entire building. The main worship center is NOT set up for strict social distancing, but each row has been spaced apart more than normal to provide extra space.
Please take all of this into consideration as you prayerfully decide whether to attend the Legacy Simulcast. Unless things change dramatically with Covid, these are the measures we are planning on implementing during the Legacy Simulcast event.
