Phase 2 Re-Gathering Put on Hold
After much deliberation... Given Governor Abbott’s statements Monday on the increase of COVID-19 cases in our state, we have made the decision to postpone the regathering of Sunday School classes due to the fact that some of our rooms are too small to accommodate social distancing needs. It becomes complicated if not all classes are able to meet.
We are, however, moving back to two worship services, 9:00 Ignite and 11:00 Traditional. We originally created the third 8:00 service not knowing how many to expect. Given our current attendance, we feel like two services will be sufficient. We will continue is to monitor and make adjustments as needed.
We continue to strongly recommend masks for worship, and we are asking that masks to be worn especially during corporate singing.
- 2 Services: (9:00 Ignite, 11:00 Traditional)
- We will continue to have social distance seating
- There will be overflow seating for traditional service in Fellowship Hall
- Families can sit next to each other, but all others will be guided to sit 6’ apart... this will require everyone’s support and consideration.
- There will be NO Sunday School Classes Meeting as of now.
- There will be NO Nursery care.
- To Enter Sanctuary we will only have the East (Church Street) doors (sanctuary and basement) open. The remainder of church will be locked.
- To Enter the Ignite Worship Center (the gym) we will only have the front and back doors of the Family Life Center open. The remainder of the church will remain locked.
- We will have doors propped open and hand sanitizer available for everyone entering.
- We will have some masks available, but ask that if you have your own, please bring with you. We strongly recommend masks for worship, and we are asking that masks to be worn especially during corporate singing.
- We ask those that are in any way feeling symptomatic to NOT come to worship, but rather continue to join us online with our Live-Stream Worship.
We are so grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding as we navigate these unique set of circumstances. We know and recognize that there are many differing views and opinions of best practices. Our prayer is that we all can work together to live into Wesley’s urging to “Do no harm” and to best serve and protect our church family.
