Freedom Church Re-Opening Plan

We're excited to announce that Freedom Church has safely reopened for live worship gatherings at all campuses!  Don't worry, we're also continuing online gatherings and Freedom House groups! 

We understand that many will have questions related to reopening, safety protocols, church programming and more.  Jump to the bottom of the page to find our list of FAQs.


No virus is going to keep us from walking out the vision God has given us to help people Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Your Purpose and Make A Difference!


Why do we need to make a reservation?

Reservations are required to ensure social distancing and that we align with the guidelines put in place by the State of Maryland.  Currently we cannot allow more than 250 people to gather at any campus.  Our online reservation system will also ensure seating protocols follow social distancing guidelines.

How do I RSVP?

We will use Brushfire to help us safely manage social distancing during our gatherings to reserve seating for individuals and families within capacity guidelines. An incorporated wellness check through Docusign will help to ensure the safety of our gatherings.

Our reservation link isn't quite ready, when reservations open we'll be sure to let you know.

How are we monitoring those who may be sick or infected with Covid-19?

Everyone attending will complete a docusign form during their RSVP process of 3 important things:

  • They’ve taken their temperature, 
  • They haven’t been exposed to anyone with COVID-19
  • And that they commit to communicate with us should they contract the virus. 

Are we required to wear masks?

With the value of loving and preferring others, we are requiring all individuals attending an in-person gathering to wear a face mask.

What will be different?

To limit high contact areas, we will not open coffee bars. We will remove all pens and connection cards from chairs. Doors will be kept open to eliminate contact. We will reduce seating capacity to secure safe social distancing. We are installing hand sanitizing stations throughout each campus.

What if I'm not ready to join a public church gathering?

We understand that a significant portion of our church family may not feel comfortable joining a public worship gathering.  Our online campus will continue to meet with prayer teams and moderators available to you.

Anyone that is considered to be in a vulnerable population is encouraged to join us online. This includes elderly individuals, individuals with underlying health conditions, including high blood pressure, chronic lung disease, diabetes, obesity, asthma, and those with compromised immune systems.

How will the locations be cleaned and sanitized?

Each campus will be professionally cleaned and sanitized every week, as well as additional cleaning/sanitation between each gathering.  As weather allows we will keep high traffic doorways open to limit contact with hard surfaces.

What about kids?

Our children are more than welcome to join us in the main auditoriums of our campuses because Freedom Kids will not be offering programming for any ages until closer to the start of the school year. We simply need more time to make sure those environments are safe & fun for our kids.  

Will there be singing?

Worship is a core value of Freedom Church. Our gatherings will include live worship, and individuals are encouraged to participate as you feel  comfortable while meeting safe precautions.

Why are we hosting Dream Team Sundays?

These soft lauch Sundays will provide opportunities for vision casting, training, and testing systems before opening campuses to the public. All Dream Team members desiring to attend a gathering on July 26, August 2, or August 9 will need to reserve seating.

How will the Dream Team be trained?

Training will be specific to each team. Team members should plan on having in person huddles with their team leads for training and communication.

What are the precautions for the Dream Team?

All Dream Team members will meet a wellness check before serving. The wellness check will require temperature to be taken before arrival at the campus, confirmation of no known exposure to COVID, and no known symptoms to be present.
