Wellness Team Update: Thursday, June 25, 2020


South Park Church’s Wellness Plan Phase 3 will begin on June 29 following the state’s June 26 move to Restore Illinois Phase 4.  For details, please read and view the videos below.

Video 1: Phase 3 of the South Park Church Wellness Plan

Video 2: "Why Other Ministries but not Indoor Worship?"


Phase 3 of the South Park Church Wellness Team will be longer than Phase 2, so please know that adjustments will continue to be made as necessary.  

We are eager for ministries to have the chance to meet in person more, so we are always evaluating the guidelines to allow that to happen safely.  The Wellness Team continuously monitors the situation,  gathering info from Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines, the state’s Restore Illinois Plan, and church-specific resources.

The following are improvements and guidance during this phase:



We will be able to welcome some ministries back into the building with safety guidelines posted at the entry and throughout the building.

  • Celebrate Recovery will be able to begin meeting in the MPR June 29. This includes the large group on Mondays, 2 breakout groups on Mondays, 1 step study on Tuesday, 2 step studies on Thursday, and 1 step study on Friday.   Contact Nick Powell or email for more information.
  • Faith and Fitness will meet in the MPR for socially distanced exercise on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:00 a.m.  Contact Deb Schmidt or email for more information
  • There will be a series, “A Biblical Perspective on Current Events,” held on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. in the MPR.  Information will be sent out next week on how to register to attend in-person or how to watch the broadcast at home.

The following Ministries will continue to meet off-site for the next couple of months:

  • Women’s Thrive Study this summer will continue as a Zoom study as planned.  The hope is to move back into the building in the fall.

  • Iron Men will begin a series on July 11!  The teaching will be broadcast from the church.  Small groups are encouraged to meet together either in-person as they are comfortable or over zoom.  Pastor Eric will be communicating details to Iron Men Small Group Leaders. 

  • Young Adults will continue to meet off-site with Fellowship Hall available for inclement weather.

  • Family Ministry - Family ministry values safety and the safest way to meet is in small groups.  In addition, Family Ministry follows guidelines set forth from the schools in addition to IDPH and Restore Illinois.

The Family Ministry Team will be communicating age specific plans in the next week. Summer Fun in the Sun is a family challenge from  July 6 - 19! The Family Ministry Team will be communicating more details!  And keep an eye on their Facebook Page! Sunday videos for all ages birth - high school can continue to be found in the Friday emails and online by clicking here.


Sunday Morning Worship

We understand the desire to worship together!   The safest way we can do this is to meet in small groups off-site to the extent you are comfortable.  Click here for guidelines on how to protect yourself and others.  If you have additional questions about safety guidelines for meeting as a group, visit the CDC’s or IDPH website.

  • The previous 3+ months, our services have been recorded and edited.  Services will now be live streamed from the church on Sundays at 10 a.m. and can continue to be viewed on our Website, YouTube and Facebook.  
  • Planning is in the works to host a worship experience in-person on August 2.  Most likely, this service will be held outside and also broadcast online.  More details to come! 


Church Office

The church office (front desk) will remain closed at the beginning of this phase, though we will continue to receive mail and check the church voicemail frequently.  


The Wellness Team will continue to meet weekly and will share improvements and adjustments during this phase as they are decided.
