ANNOUNCEMENTS - Updated 05-24-2020
WORSHIP SERVICE INSIDE AGAINStarting this Sunday, May 24th, we will be back to having our 11:00am Worship Service inside for those who wish to come in. We will also be continuing our services in the parking lot for those who do not wish to come in (FM 96.7) and we will be continuing to post all services via FACEBOOK LIVE and our website.
Safety for our congregation and guest is our priority. We are encouraging social distancing in the hallways and sanctuary. We are asking that there be no physical greeting such as handshakes, fist pumps, and elbow bumps to limit contact. You may wish to wear gloves and mask inside but this is not mandatory. We want to provide as safe a condition for worship as possible without throwing out all of the freedoms we enjoy in worship.
The communion and offering will be different. The trays will not be passed at all. Communion
Emblems will be offered with individual juice and bread cups. There will be some soft music playing during the communion time and you can come up and take communion at the table a few at a time while observing social distancing. The empty cups can be put into a basket which will also be at the table. An offering box will be placed at the back of the auditorium so that you may place your offering on the way in or on the way out.
Hand Sanitizer and facial tissues will be available as always.
Our indoor services will be limited to the 11:00am worship service only for a few weeks. There will be no fellowship meals for immediate future. We also will be postponing VBS to a later date. As the conditions in our area improve we will begin to add back some of our other programs.
You are welcome to come and join us for worship if you feel comfortable in doing so. If not, that is okay. The one thing we want you to understand is that there is no judgment about what you do either way. You must do what is best for you and your family.
CONNECTION MINISTRY: We are asking all members to pray, keep in contact with each other by phone, email, text messages, or mail. Please take the opportunity to encourage and lift each other up. Please let Loren know if there are any needs of our people so that we can try to help.
DRIVE IN CHURCH - Each week at 11:00am we invite you to come out for drive-in church services. Just park and tune your FM radio to 96.7. We will be having communion service but you are asked to bring your own emblems from home. Offering will be taken up after the service via dropbox. No restroom facilities will be available.
FB LIVE EVENTS - Join us each night at 6:00pm for a 15 minute devotional Bible Study. On Sunday nights at 6:00pm you can join us for our study on the book of Revelation.
