       All of us miss being able to worship together as a church family. While we would like to pick up exactly where we left off, we realize that our coming back together will be a gradual process. The following action plan has been developed with much prayer, seeking leadership from God, and considering the state restrictions and guidelines.
       After all of that, we believe the following action plan is reasonable and represents our eagerness to gather together with God’s people to worship Him in a biblical way. The safety of our church family and obedience to God are of the utmost consideration in our decisions.
 
 

As you review our action plan, please keep the following things in mind:

 
1. There will be varying opinions within our church and within our community regarding how and when we reassemble. Let me encourage you to be respectful of others’ decisions. The best we can do is make wise decisions concerning information at hand and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. We are in this together as a family. Let’s support, pray for, and encourage one another.
2. This action plan is subject to change as information updates and as God leads. Please check back regularly for updated schedules.
3. We want to encourage all those that fall in high risk categories, including those over 65 years of age, to continue to make decisions that protect your health. Do not feel compelled to participate in anything you feel places you in jeopardy. All online worship options will remain in place.
4. Before we bring any groups back together, our facilities will have been thoroughly disinfected and will continue to be disinfected between meetings. We will also have instituted safety precautions that comply with all social distancing and cleanliness guidelines.
5. Social distancing requires that people not linger in the halls to fellowship. Staff/ushers will be stationed in the hall to encourage moving directly into the auditorium. Dismissal will be by rows to avoid violating social distancing guidelines.
6. Every other row of seating has been removed. We also ask that you keep a minimum of three chairs between family units.

The benefits of gathering again are huge!  The benefits include fellowshipping with God’s people, singing together as a congregation, hearing preaching in person, and enjoying one another’s spiritual gifts. If you feel uncomfortable attending under these circumstances, please stay home.
 
We are excited to gather in person again as a church, specifically excited to see how the Lord will work in the coming days. Please understand if things change statewide, our schedule will have to be adjusted accordingly.
