Church Service Sunday
That's right! We are able to gather as a small church group on Sunday, June 14th!
Here is the info for Sunday:
-We will have one service beginning at our usual 10:45 AM; This will include songs and sermon.
-We ask that everyone wears a mask; we will provide a few extras, as well as Hand Sanitizer.
-Bottled beverages will be provided.
-The sanctuary and main restrooms will be open. Please enter the sanctuary doors.
-We will be sanitizing regularly. Having one service helps with this.
-A tithing box will be available instead of passing tithing bags.
-Individually-wrapped self-serve communion cups with wafers will take the place of open communion dishes.
-We will have designated spots marked on the pews where people can sit to allow for social distancing.
-Children are welcome to sit with their families in service. Childcare will not be provided at this time, nor will Children's Church programming be available during this phase of reopening. Preschool and grade school children will each have a special tote with a Bible activity book, colored pencils, a snack and drink ready for them each week. They will be located on the back pew.
-If you are able to stay home or need to stay home, please continue to do so. We will be recording each complete service and posting it online for you to view after the service each Sunday. We will no longer have the service pre-recorded and uploaded on Saturdays.
-We are only able to have a maximum of 50 people. Although we don't anticipate that many coming at first, please have flexibility and be willing to view the service from home in the event we have visitors.
-Please keep us updated with needs and prayer requests.
