Groups Meeting at the Church
Please remember to check in with the office when planning for groups to meet in the church building so we can put you on the calendar. We have had several instances recently where more than one group planned to use the same room. We want to accommodate everyone as best we may, but planning ahead is key!
Sunday Service Changes
We want to thank you again for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncertain waters.
1. We will offer two worship services which will be held at 9:30am and 11:00am. The 8:30am service will no longer meet.
2. We ask that those attending the 9:30am service would please exit the building quickly so that we may disinfect and prepare for the second service. This applies to the main sanctuary, overflow seating, bathrooms, and common areas.
3. We strongly recommend wearing a mask for the safety of those around you. If you are in the hallway or foyer after 10:40am a mask will be required.
4. Some Bible Fellowship groups may resume meeting in the building. Please contact your leader for more information. If you are not part of a group and desire to join one, please contact the office at email@example.com or call 308-832-1574.
5. Check in will begin at 10:45am for Sunday School classes that will meet during the 11:00am service. Masks will be required if social distancing cannot be maintained, so please have one available for your child. Please watch for more information from Pastor Lige on the changes to our children’s ministry!
If we all work together we can provide a safe and comfortable experience for our entire faith family! Thank you for your cooperation. Any questions or concerns may be directed to the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 308-832-1574.
