Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends? Please update the name on your ticket to match the person/people attending by clicking the "view and manage your order online" link in your confirmation email.

Why do I need to provide so much information to reserve a spot in church? We are requiring reservations with specific attendee names for all in-person worship services as we are required by the Diocese of Texas to inform all attendees if we are notified within 14 days that someone in the service has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Additionally, we are restricted to having no more than 175 individuals in any service. With the six-foot social distancing requirement, it is likely that we can accommodate a maximum of 150 people in either the Church or the Hall Life Center.
