COVID-19 - What is our church doing?

03/16/2020

UPDATED: May 10th 2020

Dear members and friends,

As you may be aware, we have been able to start meeting for service again in accordance with our governor’s reopening plan. While we are thankful and elated to be able to do so, now more than ever it is a high priority to make our church a safe, secure place for you and your family to worship. For at least the next couple of weeks, you will be able to choose between two identical services at 9:30 and 11:00 am. We offer a special invitation for those who are high risk or elderly to join us at the 9:30 service. Our 11:00 am service will be live on Facebook and YouTube. Those in Kindergarten through 11 years old will have the option of staying with their family or being a part of Kids Zone classes during the 11 am service.

Due to the ongoing concern about the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we are exercising caution in every way we can as we take this seriously. In addition to the safety measures we normally follow, we are taking extra precautions during this time to help keep you and your family safe and healthy.

These measures include the following procedures:
•Wiping down high-traffic areas like door handles after every service.
•Keeping hand-sanitizing stations in bathrooms and at the front door full.
•Keeping the nursery, food, and fellowship areas closed.
•Operating at less than half capacity by having multiple services.
•Sanitizing the sanctuary and bathrooms between services.
•Utilizing alternate methods for giving and other usher duties.
•Altering the sanctuary seating to allow for social distancing.
•Providing face masks for those that would like them for service or elsewhere.


Our team is closely following news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about best practices to contain the spread of the coronavirus. We’ll continue to update our policies and procedures with the latest information and communicate with you as necessary. Of course, we need your help too.

Here’s what you can do to keep yourself and others safe and healthy:
•Avoid skin contact. While we love giving hugs, handshakes, and high-fives, try giving an elbow-bump, a big smile, or a friendly wave instead.
•If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth with your sleeve or a tissue.
•Wash your hands often in warm water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
•Use hand sanitizer often.
•If you or your family members are experiencing, or have recently experienced, symptoms associated with the flu or the common cold (fever, persistent cough, headache, chills, or unexplained rash), stay home.
•If you need to stay home from church, please watch online. We want everyone to stay connected to what the Lord is doing in our church. Together, we can do our best to make our church a safe place for everyone.

It is my sincere hope and prayer that you and all the members of your family will come through this crisis more prepared to live life to its fullest and more importantly, to be prepared for eternity. May it be true of all of us that we are becoming better equipped to minister and make a difference as we move forward together.

Looking forward to seeing you or hearing from you soon!
