OUR PLAN TO RE-OPEN CHURCH
We want to share with you our plan to return to corporate worship which promotes being a good neighbor. We have been planning with flexibility. We will make adjustments to this plan as needed.
Service Schedule beginning JULY 5:
- Sunday School (9:30am) – Livestream Only
- Worship Service (11:00am) – Live attendance with Livestream for those wishing not to come
- There will be no nursery or children’s programming at this time. Parents are responsible for their own children – please do not let them run around the building and as much as possible from touching other people.

- There will be reduced touch points and enhanced cleaning of high contact areas
- Doors will open 20 minutes before the service but not before
- Follow directions for entering and exiting the building. ALL DOORS WILL BE OPEN. We will have people at the doors to assist and give instructions. We are striving to make the only thing a person touches is the chair they sit in and use of restroom.
