COVID-19 Pandemic Updates

regarding the current status of services

Updated: Sunday, February 21, 8:25 am CST

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 viral pandemic, we are holding limited in-person services until further notice. This action follows the best recommendations from our public health officials.

Effective November 1, we will meet for Sunday AM Worship at 10:30am and Sunday PM Worship at 5:00pm. All bible classes (Sunday AM, Wednesday) remain suspended at this time.

For Sunday Worship Services, precautions have been implemented to protect the health of our members and visitors. We encourage everyone who is attending to review these precautions by clicking on the guidance tab. For those who are vulnerable, ill, or otherwise unable to attend, we will broadcast this service as we regularly do through our online channels.

With regards to our bible classes, we will continue to broadcast live our supplemental bible studies: Sundays at 9:00am and Wednesdays at 7pm. View our live broadcasts with the viewer below, or on our Facebook page. Previously broadcast recordings will be integrated into our Archives in due time.

We exhort you to continue prayers and studies of God’s Word as we all go through this present distress.

For both our members’ and visitors’ safety, the following precautions will be in place for our in-person worship services:

  • Sunday AM Worship will begin at 10:30 AM. Sunday PM Worship will begin at 5:00 PM.
    Sunday AM Bible Class and Wednesday Bible Class will continue to be held online in the interactive broadcast format.
  • The elders strongly recommend that everyone attending wears face coverings or masks for the protection of those around you. A limited number of disposable masks may be available for use at the building.
  • No touching or extended visiting with others will be permitted.
  • The emergency exits on either side of the auditorium may be used to exit at the conclusion of services to allow for additional spacing and multiple pathways to the parking lot.
  • Individually sealed communion packs will be provided in the foyer upon entry.
  • Every other pew will be closed. The elders trust that households will distance themselves properly, in accordance with CDC and city guidelines.
  • Contributions can be placed in a collection box located in the foyer either at arrival or on departure.
  • The building will be sanitized between services with extra attention to high touch surfaces (i.e., restrooms, doorknobs, pews, etc.).

These precautions will be in place until further notice.

While we are resuming limited services, this action is not without risk. Public health officials recommend vulnerable people continue sheltering in place. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Elderly individuals over the age of 65
  • Individuals with serious underlying health conditions:
    • High blood pressure
    • Heart disease
    • Chronic lung disease
    • Diabetes
    • Obesity
    • Asthma
    • Those whose immune system is compromised such as by chemotherapy for cancer and other conditions requiring such therapy

For these individuals, we encourage you to continue complying with the safer-at-home guidelines. All services will continue to be streamed online.

Likewise, if you are not feeling well or have any symptoms (coughing; fever; shortness of breath or trouble breathing; persistent pain, pressure, or tightness in the chest), please do not attend.

We hope these guidelines and procedures will help to keep everyone safe and healthy as we strive to worship the Lord together once more.
