…thus I do not want, in my better mind, to escape great trials since they involve great graces. If my strength shall be as my days (Deut. 33:25)  then let my days be long and dark, for my strength will be mighty, God will be glorified and I will be blessed.”

 

 

  The Adult Sun. school classes, have been reopened and begin at 9:30 AM. and we will continue to meet on Sunday’s at 10:45 A.M. for worship. We will also continue to do the Facebook Live on Wednesday’s at 9:00 A.M.

  • If you are sick, please stay home. We don’t need to infect others and then the church have to shut down for an extended period of time.

  • If you are uncomfortable about returning right now, that’s OK. Take some more time if you need to. The services have been and will continue to be streamed over the internet.

  • We have the auditorium marked off with tape. Seating will be directed by staff and ushers. Some may need to go to the Family Life Center and watch on the screen downstairs. It could be that in the next few weeks we just move the services downstairs. Chairs are much easier to space than pews. You and I need to be flexible concerning this.

  • We have Restroom Attendants as monitors. These men and women will do their best to keep the facilities sanitized before and after use. Help keep things clean and fresh.

  • Everyone is asked to wear a mask. If you have one, bring it with you. If you don’t, we will get you one when you arrive.

  • We will not be shaking hands, hugging, or “greeting the brethren with a holy kiss” for a while longer.

  • Tithes and Offerings will be collected a little differently. We will not pass the offering plates. When you arrive for the service or when you leave we have a box on the table in the foyer of the church for your giving. If you plan to watch online you can continue to give via the church website, mailing it through snail mail, or we can have one of the staff swing by your house if you are more comfortable with that method. If you do plan to attend, the box will be available for you. Let’s all continue to be honest with the Lord concerning our giving.

  • We will exit at the end of the service in a safe way. It may be that we dismiss pew by pew. We will play that by ear depending on the crowd size.

  • For the next few weeks, we will ease back into a full schedule. No Sunday night service for at least the remainder of July & possibly part of August.

  • I do think that, in some ways at least, we are getting better concerning this Coronavirus. The term I had heard bandied about on the news a few weeks ago was, “The curve has flattened”. Although there has recently been an upswing in the number of cases being diagnosed, the  mortality rate continues to decline. But we will continue to do our dead level best to keep our people safe and healthy. We are staying informed by the Governors’ Office.

  • Let’s pray for the Lord to give us new ways to minister to the community. Lost people still need Christ. The Great Commission didn’t have a coronavirus excuse written into the fine print. We are to still encourage the brethren. Pray for doors to open giving you and me the opportunity to spread the Good News.
