On Sunday, August 26, we will be making several changes at Rocky Creek. Some groups will be changing times and rooms. The worship service will move from the sanctuary to the gym for a few months. And the second floor from the chapel stairwell to the “elevator” stairwell will be closed, due to our renovation project.
With all these changes, our traffic flow in and around the building will change. For parking information please click here. The following will be helpful information for navigating from the parking lot to groups or the worship service and between the worship service and groups. Click here to see a video about our traffic flow.
There will not be access to the sanctuary, choir room, multipurpose room, and the hallway that connects them. Plus, the doors to the sanctuary, historical room, and welcome center at the choir will remain locked during our renovations, so you cannot enter the building here.
The main corridor for moving between floors will be the stairwell at the elevator and the elevator itself, so please use the fellowship hall or classrooms to gather and converse, and not the stairwells. Also, please only use the elevator if it is absolutely necessary. The stairwell from the third floor coffee station to the second floor welcome center to the first floor classrooms will only be available in an emergency.
For preschool families, enter the preschool area at the covered drop off or landing door. Then use the stairwell at the elevator to move to the 3rdfloor or use the open stairwell at the landing to get to and from the gym.
For children’s families that attend groups at 9:00am, please plan to exit the children’s area using the back stairwell and then exit the building at the back of the preschool. Please walk down the back parking lot hill and enter the gym and fellowship hall area via the back steps. For families traveling from the first service to their groups, please use the stairwell at the elevator.
The students (6th-12thgraders) will meet on the 3rdfloor above the chapel. They can enter the chapel stairwell from the front or back parking lots and proceed to the third floor. Students who go to group first will exit the chapel stairwell toward the Storehouse then cross the parking lot toward the preschool covered drop off. They will utilize the outside steps to go down to the first floor and then enter the gym. From the worship service to groups, students should go up the outside steps from the 1stfloor to the preschool drop off and then across the parking lot to the back door to the chapel stairwell.
College students will meet in the Storehouse at 9:00am. They will attend the 10:30am worship service by crossing the parking lot toward the preschool covered drop off. They will utilize the outside steps to go down to the first floor and then enter the gym.
Most adult groups will be in the education wing on the 3rdfloor. Adults attending 9:00am groups can get to the third floor by utilizing the chapel stairwell or the stairwell at the elevator. In order to travel between the worship service and groups please use the stairwell at the elevator.
The groups that used to meet in the chapel will now meet on the first floor. They can enter the facility at the covered drop off at the gym and fellowship hall area. Or they can enter the first floor by the door at the end of room 140 on the first floor.
The Band of Brothers will attend the worship service at 9:00am and then have their group in the Storehouse at 10:30am. These men will go up the outside steps from the 1stfloor to the preschool drop off and then across the parking lot to the Storehouse.
During our construction the Hispanic Bible study and worship service will be in the chapel area. Those attending either of these can enter the chapel area from the front or back parking lot.
Guests will be directed to park in guest parking and then enter the facility at the covered drop off at the gym and fellowship hall.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we navigate the next few months. Change isn’t easy, but it’s necessary for growth. Let’s keep moving forward with God.
