Before You Arrive

What is the worship experience like at ICC Imara on a Sunday?

Each service begins with energetic and inspiring music played by a live band. The sanctuary setting is contemporary with creative multi-media elements designed to make it easy to follow along and conducive for you to participate during each song. You will then hear a message based on the Bible. The heart of our church is to help people grow. It is our hope and goal that the message will encourage and challenge you.

ICC IMARA COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

As we worship in-person at our facility, we have ensured that the experience is as safe as possible for you and your family. Please try to arrive 15 minutes before service begins so we can guide you through the processes and help provide the best possible experience. 

Face Masks 

We will be requiring all to wear a face mask while on our facility. If you forget your face mask, we will provide you with one. We require masks to be worn at all times not out of fear, but out of love and concern for others.

Working Together to Stay Safe

We will be making our facility safe, secure and spacious as per the recommended guidelines.

  • We will maintain 1.5m social distancing
  • Every chair will be sanitized prior to and between each worship experience.
  • We will have hand sanitizer stations available at our facility.
  • We will request you keep your face mask on during the worship service.
  • Giving of offering will be done online
  • Communion servers will have gloves, face mask and face shield.
  • Ushers will give a friendly smile or wave rather than a handshake to help keep our services contactless.

We are family! 

You are part of the ICC Imara Church family whether you attend in-person or online! As Christ’s disciples, we are learning to live out our calling to worship, pray, encourage, witness, disciple, and serve in creative ways that minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission. We’ve gone online, moved some of our small groups to video chats, and found new ways to love our neighbors. We are still the people of God; WE—not our buildings—are the real church.

There’s plenty of parking. If you are a first-time visitor, we have parking lot attendants and greeters to help guide you to a great spot.

  • You won’t have to wear a name badge or be singled out in any way.
  • You don’t even have to sing along if you don’t feel comfortable.
  • You’re not expected to give when we receive the offering.

We have a Welcome Card available in the service to fill out in case you have questions, need prayer or are interested in any of our events or resources. This card is only used to help us serve you better and keep you informed of church-wide events and activities. You will not be spammed.

As our guest, we also have a gift for you. You can stop by the Welcome Center in the prefab buildings in the compound for a quick chat with our welcome team.

We believe that Jesus is the son of God and the Bible is the word of God. Our goal is to serve you in any way possible to help you grow.
