Coronavirus Safety at Church

Mar 16, 2020

Dear Church,
Our church has been monitoring the Coronavirus pandemic very closely. With the current environment in mind, we are modifying some of our practices to help limit exposure to the virus. We will be having a shortened service tomorrow and you are welcome to come if you take responsibility for your part. We will also be streaming the service on our Facebook page, for those of you who will not be attending. If you have any kind of symptoms, or you are in a high-risk demographic please do not come to church. You can watch it from home.
Those who need to stay home:

  • Older adults (especially those over 80)
  • People who have serious chronic medical conditions like:
    • Heart disease
    • Diabetes
    • Lung disease

Those who are attending services must be proactive about their hygiene.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds every chance you get.
  • Make use of our hand sanitizing stations
  • Do not shake hands with others
  • Extend your personal space bubble to 6 feet whenever possible

At the church we have also taken steps to keep the space safe:

  • The space has been sanitized with bleach especially the doorknobs and other surfaces that people regularly touch.
  • Deacons will be opening doors for you so you won’t have to touch the doorknobs.
  • Our communion preparation practices now include extra sterile procedures.

At the end of the day, the choice to attend church is yours. Please do not feel obligated to come if you are at risk or uncertain.

Attending worship service on Sunday morning gets my week started out great and with a purpose. I take great joy in service to the members of my church being a deacon. It is an honor to partake of the Lord's Supper.The format of the worship service is similar to the way it was when I was a boy growing up in this church. My parents were faithful members here and I can touch their memories each Sunday. Sometime certain hymns bring back wonderful memories of my parents, Red & Jeane Williams. I also enjoy and take comfort from fellowship with my church family and friends. We are so fortunate to have Rev. Jordan Byrd. He brings insight and clarity to the scriptures in a unique way. I always gain knowledge from his messages and also practicable ways to apply God's Word into everyday life experiences.
