Family and Friends:
We continue to live with a great deal of uncertainty as both Covid-19 issues and the unrest in our world impact our lives, our families, our community, and our church.
Your church leadership still needs your prayers and insights as we seek God's guidance and power through these difficult days.
Here is what our church is doing at the present and plans to do in the near future--always subject to change as the situation evolves and as we seek God's guidance.
Our livestream of worship will be continue to be available on Facebook live at the usual time of 10:00 AM on Sunday and as a post on our Facebook page anytime after that.
THERE IS A LINK TO THE FACEBOOK PAGE ABOVE--YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT TO VIEW THE PAGE AND THE LIVESTREAM.
If you need assistance in viewing on Facebook, call the office for guidance during regular office hours. A video and audio recording will also be posted on the church website,
and the previous Sunday's worship may be heard on WKMZ 99.9 at 9:00 each Sunday morning.
We resumed in-person worship on Sunday, June 7th. with the following guidelines:
One service at 10:00 in the sanctuary, with streaming available in a special safe area in the CAC for high-risk attendees.
No Sunday School or in-service child care at this time.
Seating available in every other pew, and households will be seated 6 feet apart.
Entry and exit will be monitored to encourage physical distancing.
Bathrooms available for emergencies only.
Secure boxes to receive offerings will be available at entrances; no plates passed.
No welcome time.
Masks recommended; required for those who sing in the congregation.
As decisions are made regarding the opening of schools and other activities, we will take those steps and the developments in the spread or control of the pandemic under consideration as we explore our options for small groups, children's activities and childcare, and worship practices.
We know this is not the church experience we are used to or would prefer--but we believe God is bigger than our limitations and we can experience being close to Him and to each other despite these restrictions. We also know that some should delay personal participation for their own or their family's health, and we encourage all of you to act with wisdom and care.
Thank you for continuing to . . .
