During this troubled time in our country, our leaders have mandated a mask order when we are in public settings, sadly this includes the church. We as an Elder board understand that this is an inconvenience, but as believers we have to remember who we worship and praise.
Isaiah 41:10 says-
“Do not fear, for I am with you: Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
The scope of Sunday morning has changed, there has been some questions if we are going to close the doors again during this time, the answer is, NO. However there will be changes during our service.
- A face covering is required when you enter the church building and at all times when you are in the church
- We will continue to practice social distancing (6 feet)
- We are discontinuing the meet and greet during the morning worship
- Temporarily we are not going to have fellowship time after the morning service
- There will be a plate at the door for your tithe and offering
- Communion will be postponed for now, the Elders are looking into alternate communion ideas
- Sunday School will continue, the face covering is required
In light of this, we will also be postponing the quarterly business meeting for Sunday July 26; however the financial reports will be available for you to review.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact one of the Elders or the Pastor, we are here to help with your needs.
Thank you for your support
