As you know, our church has done everything possible to cooperate with the requests made by our Governor and our local Health Department during the unprecedented COVID-19 Pandemic. We ceased having in-person services for seven consecutive Sundays (March 22-May 10). We have had only our two morning Sunday Services (identical with social-distanced seating) since May 10. In light of the Governor lifting the State restrictions, the consensus of our Deacons and our Church Family at-large seems to be that it is time to work toward resuming a more normal schedule.
To that end, we will resume our regular Sunday Services, 10:30 am and 6:00 pm, on July 5. Rather than only the two identical morning services, we will return to the one Morning Service and one Evening Service (different music/message). We will keep half of our pews social-distanced by skipping every other pew. The other half is now opened up.
We will also begin having Sunday School classes at 9:30 am on Sunday, July 5, although it is yet unclear how full a list of classes we can offer. We are still in the process of contacting teachers and workers to determine which classes we can resume. We will email and post on our website and on Facebook a list of the classes that will resume the week of July 1. Please pray that God will guide us as we seek His guidance in how to proceed.
Please know that we in no way want to pressure anyone to get out if you are not ready to do so. We will continue broadcasting our Sunday Morning Service on Facebook and YouTube, and would love to have you worship with us online if that is best for you. Your faithfulness to worship, to give, to serve others has been an incredible testimony to your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ during these difficult days. May the Lord be glorified through us in the days and months to come!
