Church Information & Recommendations Regarding COVID19 updated 6/23/2020
We have started having services on-site again! The service times are 9:00 and 11:00am, in order to allow time to clean between services. There is no Nursery, Children's Church, or Sunday School for any ages at this time. We do ask that those who are sick not attend, and encourage those who are more vulnerable to consider not attending as well. Services will continue to be available on our website to serve those who cannot or choose not to attend. Also, for those who would like to come but decide to remain in their cars, the radio signal on 88.9FM is available to listen to during each service. Simply park in the church lot and tune in!
The State has lifted its conditions for churches to meet, and so we are taking steps to return more personal freedoms and responsibilities. With these steps, some things will look the same as they have this last month and some things are changing. As we meet, let's continue to put the worship of God and the love for one another first, in our actions and attitudes.
Chairs will continue to be spaced out, but you will be seating yourself as you come in. We do ask that you not move around once you have landed on a seat. Ushers will still be dismissing you from the back to the front at the close of each service in order to help maintain distancing. We do welcome you to fellowship outside now after the service. Just make sure you are not blocking the sidewalk and that you work to keep spaced apart. Remember that not everyone is at the same comfort level. Masks are no longer mandatory for those serving, but are still encouraged for everyone. Please be gracious toward one another with the choices people make regarding masks. Also, please continue to bring whatever printed materials you would like from our bulletin, including outlines, questions, or children's activity sheets (and crayons/ pencils) for your family's personal use.
If you have need of assistance, please contact the church office by email at email@example.com, and we will address those as we are able to do so. Also, remember to contact Bev Campbell for prayer chain requests by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even though so much is changing for us, our God doesn’t change and neither does our purpose. Our mission is still demonstrating Christ’s love as we grow in unity as His family, in maturity as His body and in spreading new life as His disciples. We encourage you to be thoughtful, caring and creative in how you live that out at this time.
Beyond that, we implore you to be faithful in prayer. Still be intentional in reaching out to others, over the phone or finding other ways to connect. Look for needs that you are still able to meet.
Above all, draw near to the Lord and gain strength from His Spirit and from His Word. Isaiah 41:10 – “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
