VENTURE COVID-19 FAQ's

Yes — but NOT on campus. The campus will be closed. All services will only be available online at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, and at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. on Sunday at venture.cc. While we encourage everyone to join us during one of the 3 worship times, the service will be available on-demand during the week as well. Resources for Venture Kids and Venture Students will also be provided on our website by our Family Ministries Team to supplement the services.

 

WHICH MINISTRY EVENTS WILL BE IMPACTED AND FOR HOW LONG?

Currently, no church events are taking place on the Venture campus. This includes all church events and meetings of any size. If you need to contact the church office, call 408-997-4600 or email info@venture.cc and we will make sure someone gets in touch with you. 

 

WHY ARE WE TAKING THESE MEASURES?

Santa Clara County has issued a Shelter In Place order that currently is scheduled to run through May 3rd. In an effort to partner well with our community, we are complying with the order and making every effort to help stem the tide of this pandemic.

WHAT ABOUT GROUPS OR OUTSIDE MINISTRY MEETINGS?

While no ministry meetings will take place on the Venture campus during this time, we would encourage the church to continue to connect online. As we comply with shelter-in-place orders, let’s socially distance but not socially isolate. Consider small gatherings on Zoom for Life Groups, families, and others. Families and groups can gather online via a watch party on Facebook or sharing your Zoom screen together to experience the online worship service on the weekend at venture.cc/live.
