Church Reopening Information - September 2021

Let us be clear – church is essential and for us, and a big part of this is worship service. The importance of faith and spiritual wellbeing are more important now than ever before. Every church has a vital part to play in aiding its local community in any way that it can.
 
Jesus said in Matthew 22:37-39 (KJV)Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. During this pandemic, love for ourselves is expressed in the ways we protect ourselves from getting infected. In the same way, love for our neighbor is expressed in the ways we protect them from getting infected.
 
COVID-19 is a deadly disease that must be handled with extreme care, diligence, and planning. These guidelines are not meant to address the reopening of the entire function of the church. We are reopening the ministry for Sunday worship (details will be addressed later in this document).
 
It is important to ensure that these guidelines are communicated and announced to our members beforehand. These guidelines must also apply to any visitors allowed to enter our services. 
 
As we move in this reopening phase, we will be instituting a graduated process of capping attendance. In our first phase the following things will take place:
  • Attendance will be limited to 150 people (to include families and/or individuals)
  • Families must register as a unit and sit together during worship. You most likely will not be able to sit in your usually spot.
  • Seating will not be assigned, but an usher or greeter will seat worshippers as they enter (seating will begin  at the front of the sanctuary, working back toward the entry doors).
  • Worshippers will be asked, when seated to please maintain the social distancing of six (6) feet on each pew.
