Words can’t express how much I’ve missed gathering together over the past few months. And while it’s been wonderful to watch us come together to make adjustments, support, pray for one another virtually and serve our members hit by the pandemic, I’m excited to announce that we can do some of that in person starting this Sunday! That’s right—our church leadership has decided to resume in person services on 9/27/2020. For months, we’ve prayed about the right time to reopen and asked God for the wisdom to do it safely.
We’ll continue to lean on Him and on each other as we remain patient and work together to follow physical distancing guidelines upon reopening. Our service will be at 9.00 am as usual, but a few things will be different.
Here are the fast facts:
• We will keep a safe distance from one another by seating each family 6 feet apart. • We will wear masks inside the building. No one loves them, but we ask you to please wear them to church. • We will limit touch by not passing the offering bucket and offering only to go refreshments.
Our volunteers can’t wait to welcome you back on the 27th at 9am but before you walk through the church doors, we want to remind you that reopening and staying open is a team effort. We’re doing all we can to make sure you’re safe and comfortable and we need your help, too. Additional steps we are taking include:
• Rearranging seating to allow enough space for physical distancing. • Providing masks and no-touch hand sanitizer stations. • Sanitizing high-touch surfaces before, during, and after services. • Staying abreast of coronavirus case trends and best practices for a safe environment.
What you can do:
• Wear a mask and bring hand sanitizer. But we’ll have some on hand for those who don’t. • Practice 6ft physical distancing, as much as possible. • We’re all in this together. Whether you join us online or in person, we love you and we’ll see you soon.
