Knollwood & Coronavirus


Update From Pastor Alan

Dear Knollwood Family,

I want to give you an update to let you know that our leaders are still actively tracking the Governor’s mandates. Even though we have now entered Phase 2 in Northern Virginia, there is no indication of any difference from Phase 1 for churches at this time. We are anxious to start on-site services but only at a time and in a way that will ensure the safety and health of our church family.

Until we deem that to be possible, especially with our fixed seating configuration, we plan to have prerecorded services in the Worship Center auditorium with the praise team, the children’s lesson and a message from the pulpit during the month of July.

During this time, we will be conducting “trial runs” with our greeters/ushers and staff present to analyze the 6 foot spacing requirements (4 seats) between individuals/families with every other row remaining vacant and the best process for entering/exiting the auditorium, bathroom usage, etc.

However, we do have some unexpected blessings to share with you! We are going to be able to live stream our services as soon as newly purchased camera equipment is delivered, installed and training completed – probably at the end of July. This will enable our folks who can’t attend - once we open- to watch a “live” service during our regular Sunday morning service time of 10:30am plus provide many potential outreach opportunities even after the pandemic is over!

In the meantime, please know we are praying for each of you who call Knollwood their church home. May you continue to seek God’s continued guidance and direction as we altogether work through this difficult time of constant changes and challenges!

Most of all – thank you for your prayers for God’s wisdom and guidance for the staff and the elders. He promises to grant His children wisdom in abundance if we but ask!

In Christ’s love,

Pastor Alan
