We are asking those “At-Risk” to stay home and continue to enjoy our online services until they feel safe that they can return to public activities.
People will be on heightened alert, so if you or your children are sick, think you or anyone in your family might be getting sick, or show symptoms that are similar to COVID-19, Influenza, or other seasonal illnesses, please stay home.
There will be a Zoom/Facebook live Sabbath School and Worship Service live streamed to allow members/guests to continue to stay home and watch online.
There will be hand sanitizer available and the sanctuary, greeting area, nursery and rest rooms will be wiped down with disinfectant. Commonly touched areas throughout the church will also be disinfected.
Greeting at the Entrances
In order cut down on contact we are going to try using digital bulletins and put announcements on the screens using power point. Everything will be made available online and on digital screens. Bulletins will be emailed out.
Social Distancing Guidelines
Please refrain from hugging, shaking hands, or any close contact with anyone that that does not live in your dwelling space. Parent’s with children will be asked to keep their kids in sight to help maintain social distancing guidelines.
Families that live together will be encouraged to sit together. Otherwise please keep some space between you/your family and other individuals/families.
There will be story, but we are asking that children stay with their parents or guardian throughout the story. The children will not be picking up an offering. Instead there will be a basket available in the back between services for the children’s offering.
We encourage you to use online giving as your primary giving option. If you wish to give a check or cash in an envelope, collection plates will be available on a table in the sanctuary.
Sabbath School Classes
There will only be one main Sabbath School meeting in the sanctuary. Please keep in mind social distancing.
Children’s Sabbath School Classes
Children's Sabbath School classes are meeting. Parents, please remind your children to keep there distance as best they can.
Please take extra care when you are washing your hands. Hand sanitizer stations will made available throughout the church for your convince.
No fellowship meals until further notice.
These guidelines, while seeming restrictive, are necessary actions required to continue to protect our members from potentially spreading viral infections to each other, such as COVID-19 and Influenza.
The fact is, about half of our membership falls into the “at-risk” category by either age or physical ailments. We want to make sure that we consider this as the public strives to return to public life. Our hopes are that some of these restrictions may one day be lifted, but some of the guidelines listed above may become a “new normal” for public worship services. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Looking forward to seeing you in person,
Pastor Bryan Laue
