Summer: Outdoor Services
We are meeting outside at 11:00am each week as we complete some work in our Auditorium. Please keep an eye on this site and our social media accounts (@fieldstonemilan) for up-to-date information from week to week.
Beginning June 6, our Sunday morning services will be outside for a good chunk of the summer while we complete some minor renovations to our Auditorium. We'll be meeting at 11:00am each week in-person and on Facebook Live. We're excited about the changes we're making inside, and we thank you for your patience while we gather outside!
Your experience with us this summer begins before you leave home! Grab a lawn chair for each member of your family, or maybe a large blanket if that's what you prefer. Consider the weather: Will you need a jacket? Sunglasses? Water bottle? If you like to sit outside the Pavilion but the sun is hot, an umbrella might be handy. If it's been wet during the week, you might consider sandals instead of shoes for the damp grass.
When you arrive, you may park anywhere in the lot, as well as the grassy area south of the parking lot. We will have a few parking spots coned off to leave some extra space around the Pavilion, but everything else is open to you.
If you have children with you, check out the "Fieldstone Kids" section below for details on what's available this summer. Otherwise, look for the Pavilion/Pole Barn area and head that way for service. You can sit anywhere under or around the Pavilion (Note: The music tends to be a bit louder underneath, and less intense as you get further away).
Once you're settled, the service itself will be similar to what you would experience when we're inside. There will be worship songs, announcements, and a Talk from Pastor Justin or someone else from our team. One adjustment we'll be making is to keep the services a little shorter than normal in order to make things a little easier on families with young children.
Our video screens will not be set up outside, so song lyrics will be available all summer at fieldstonechurch.org/Words.
Restrooms are available inside throughout the morning. The Lobby area will be unaffected by the work inside, so feel free to run in whenever you need to, but please stay out of the Auditorium work zone.
If you're newer to Fieldstone, we'd love to meet you! We will have volunteers from our Connection Team available to greet you as you arrive, but please feel free to introduce yourself and let us know if you have any questions. You can also check out fieldstonechurch.org/Welcome to see some of the basics of what Fieldstone is like under "normal" circumstances.
During outdoor services our Fieldstone Kids ministry is available for children from Birth-3yrs. When you arrive, make your way inside and look for the Kids Check-In desk in the Lobby and our team will be ready to welcome you.
Children of all ages, but especially Pre-K & older, are invited to join us outside. We will be keeping the services a little shorter than normal and (as always at Fieldstone!) there is endless grace for kids and their wiggles & giggles.
Our Fieldstone Kids team does want to stay connected with your older kids, so they're planning a few special Sundays to offer fun activities during the service for the older preschool & Elementary ages. They are targeting June 13, July 11, and August 8. Keep an eye on email & social media for details!
We will be working hard to grow our volunteer team for the fall. If you'd be willing to take a "Test Drive" with our Fieldstone Kids this summer, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd love to talk with you about what it looks like to serve in this extremely vital area of our church.
We will be watching the weather heading into each weekend and, unless it's a clearly negative forecast, we try to wait as long as possible to cancel a service. If we do need to cancel, it will be done no later than 8:00am on Sunday morning and it will be posted on Facebook & Instagram (@fieldstonemilan) and the top of this web page.
In the event of a cancelation, we will almost always provide an online option via Facebook Live at our normal 11:00 service time.
We are moving into a season where we can allow each individual & family to make personal decisions regarding their health. We simply ask three things from you:
1. Do whatever you feel is necessary to feel safe & comfortable attending services. If you need to wear a protective face covering, sit with extra distance between you and others, or even continue watching from home, please do so.
2. Please be respectful of others' choices. There are still many different views on current events and we ask that you show grace for each person & family as they re-engage with church in their own way.
3. If you're sick, stay home. Forget Covid for a second...Remember the flu? That's no fun either!
We want to get to know you better!
