Announcement – Covid19 (Updated 6/27)

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your patience and support as we seek to lead the church during these strange and trying times.

We have taken an overall cautious and conservative approach in these matters. We believe that the law of God requires us to do all things lawful to preserve our lives and the lives of others.  There is, however,  no way that we can gather that will be free of risk.  We are seeking to minimize and mitigate risk.  We cannot eliminate risk. 

We realize that this reality will require some to continue to worship at home utilizing the livestream.  We will continue to livestream both services.  We do not want anyone to be pressured into meeting.  You have a responsibility before God to act as you deem best for your family.

We want to encourage the most vulnerable among us to utilize the ability to worship at home.  
If you are not feeling well, please stay at home. If any in your family have a fever or have had a fever in the days leading up to worship, please stay home.  If you are in doubt, please take your temperature and the temperatures of family members on Sunday morning and act accordingly.
If you know that you have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for the corona virus, please stay home until given the all clear.

Many of you are aware the revised guidelines for churches now allow congregations to meet at 50% capacity. With this in view the deacons have added and arranged the seating which meets the standards with proper spacing.  There are now approximately 180 chairs in the auditorium (we have had 120 over the past few weeks).

Here is the plan.
1.  We will have one morning meeting  at 10:30
2.  We will have ushers to guide you in seating. 
3.  If you are able and willing, we want to have as many as possible up front towards the pulpit and allow visitors, those arriving late and  those training children to have easier access to the back of the room.
4.  We are going to ask for some members to volunteer to be ready to use the fellowship hall as an overflow room.  In the overflow room we will have the scripture reading and prayers and singing led ‘live’ and then utilize a large screen for the preaching.  If there is room in the sanctuary those in the overflow can move over to the main auditorium.  If you are willing to volunteer please email Darrel at darrel.l.whiteley@att.net
5.  Please remember to utilize a mask, if medically able, during the singing at the end of the service.  We are aware it is not pleasant, but we want to do our best to minimize risk of infection.
6.  Please seek to exit the premises as quickly as possible following the end of service.
7.  Remember that it is advisable to maintain some distancing even when outside.  
If you are aware of visitors or members who are not on the email list please give this information to them.

The Lord bless and keep you,

Jim
