As you have probably heard by now, Arapahoe County moves to level Orange on Colorado’s COVID-19 dial dashboard at 5 pm on 11/11/20. Based on the move, our seating capacity will be set to 50 people. I know these changes are sometimes hard to keep up with (believe me, we’re feeling the effects), but your health and safety continue to be a top priority for us. We continue to monitor state and local guidelines and will adjust as necessary.
And as always, the Eastern Hills online experience will continue to be streamed on our normal platforms - Facebook, YouTube, and ehills.org.
We’re looking forward to engaging with you - in person or online.
Grace and Peace,

As local orders have changed, I’d like to update you on our upcoming plans for the foreseeable future.
Based on the health order from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment moving Arapahoe County down from Level 1 to Level 2 of Safer at Home, we will limit our in-person gatherings to 100 people per service. (This will also be the number we can have for our High School Sunday Night and Middle School Midweek Programs.) We will continue to offer kids and students programming on Saturday night at 5 pm and kids programming on Sunday morning at 9 am. Our RSVP system has been updated to accommodate the change.
I have heard from some people that think we are moving too fast in our reopening plans. I have also heard from others that think we are moving too slow.
Regardless of where you find yourself on that continuum, I want you to know this. I believe in the importance of community during this unprecedented global pandemic, and especially as we enter the holiday season. No solution is perfect, but we are committed to making decisions that honor each other in the process.
We will continue to offer our Election Prayer Night on Monday night at 6:30 pm (at a capacity of 50). And what better opportunity than ever before to serve our community through Mountain of Mercy, our Thanksgiving food drive? We want to continue to position ourselves in situations to love and care for our community - to care well in ways that are safe and honoring. Now more than ever, we have the chance to show our community that we are #ForAurora and share the truth that Jesus Makes Life Better.
We will do as much in our capacity to make that a reality for as many as possible. I am praying for you during the uncertainty of this time.
As always, whether you already have been up until now, or you feel more comfortable now, to experience Eastern Hills online, services will continue to be streamed on all of the normal platforms - Facebook, YouTube, and ehills.org. We know online will be a better option for some people in our continued mission to invite everyone to experience that Jesus Makes Life Better.
Grace and Peace,
