“Ready, Set, GOOOO!!!!”

We are pleased to announce that, having contacted the Governor’s Office who referred us to the Ellis County Health Department, we may begin services with some reasonable restrictions.  Soooo?
SO, WE ARE RETURNING TO WORSHIPING TOGETHER THIS SUNDAY, MAY 24.
Following is our plan until things return to full normalcy: 

  1. Cautions:
    1. Please feel free to return to services when you are comfortable.  It is a matter of conscience for each household and we will continue livestreaming at 10:00 AM on Sundays.
    2. Please stay at home if you are feeling ill and especially if you are running a fever or have a cough.
    3. As you enter the Church Property and Facilities, it is important that we maintain Social Distancing (remain 6 feet apart)
  1. Service Details:
    1. There will be three services each Sunday morning for the foreseeable future:

                                          i.    8:30 AM:  especially for those who are most vulnerable (seniors and/or immunocompromised individuals).

                                        ii.    10:00 AM:  Family-focused service will be livestreamed (We hope to begin children’s ministry in June, we will update you when things are in place).

                                       iii.    11:30 AM:  Another Family-focused service (We hope to begin children’s ministry in June, we will update you when things are in place).

    1. Social Distancing restrictions necessitate limiting each Sunday Service to 70 people.

                                          i.    IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU REGISTER BELOW  which service you plan to attend.  

                                        ii.    Those living under the same roof need not social distance themselves from each other.

    1. Other Restrictions:

                                          i.    There will be an offering box near the entrance doors of the sanctuary rather than passing offering plates.  Those not attending are encouraged to continue online giving or mailing it to the office. 

                                        ii.    Bulletins will be available near the entrance to the sanctuary for those who desire to pick one up rather than being handed out.

                                       iii.    Coffee/Juice fellowship in the Gathering Space will not resume until we return to full normalcy. 

  1. Midweek:
    1. Office Hours:  9:00-3:00 Monday through Thursday, and 9:00-noon on Friday.
    2. Small Groups of 10 or less may continue to meet at the Church facilities provided rooms are available and social distancing can be maintained.
