May 15th Update
“ I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD’." - Psalm 122:1
The leadership team met this past Thursday evening to discuss the path forward for reopening the church. After consulting with our local officials, taking into account the size of our facility, and having confidence in our ability to get things ready, we feel that we can safely resume services, in stages, starting THIS SUNDAY, May 17th - AM service only at 10:45 am (9:30 classes and PM services still on hold until further notice)
Please understand that this decision did not come lightly, as we want God to be glorified in our worship and all that we do. We would love to see each and every one of you this Sunday but we respect whatever decision you make, especially if you are in the at-risk population. Because we know some will not be able to join us, the messages will continue to be available to view on the church website during this transition.
For your information and consideration:
Hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes are available at the information counter.
Handshakes and hugs will generally be discouraged out of respect for all.
You may bring your own face mask to wear, however, they are not required.
As you consider where to sit, please follow social distancing guidelines (Keep in mind front pews are always available).
You may continue to give on-line or mail in your tithes and offerings, but offering plates will not be passed during the service. If you choose to do so in person, plates are available in the front of the sanctuary, or a lockbox is located at the information counter.
Nursery, Cubbies, and Jr. Church will be available for your children.
The coffee machine in the foyer will not be available at this time.
If you are not feeling well, please stay home.
As church leaders, we have done our best to provide continuity and guidance throughout this unprecedented time. While we take this pandemic seriously, we want to extend grace to all points of view. Good people can, and do, disagree on things. In addition to the death and destruction caused by the virus, the devil would love to see disunity in the church. By God's grace, may we NEVER give the devil that, or any other victory as we lift up Jesus' name to a fearful and needy world.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact your Deacon leader or Pastor Brian.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
- Pastor Brian
