After much discussion and planning we’ve decided it would be appropriate to resume church services in person starting June 14.  This will include restrictions and recommendations that we must follow.  This will be a soft launch and not a full return and may remain this way for a few weeks as we see what works and doesn’t work as well as new guidelines and recommendations come from the governor’s office.  



  1. We’ll resume in-person service on Sunday, June 14.

  2. We’ll only offer one worship service at 10:30am.

  3. We can have up to 50% capacity in service.

  4. We’ll continue to have service live on Facebook and service will be available on the church website as well.

  5. Sunday school and weekly activities will NOT resume at this time, but you are encouraged to continue to have Zoom/online meetings, email or to stay in contact with your Sunday school class as you have been.

  6. There will be no nursery or children’s church at this time, you are more than welcome to bring your children and worship as a family in service.

  7. There will be no congregational singing at this time.

  8. It is recommended to wear a mask.

  9. No need to worry about touching doors.  We’ll have that covered.

  10. We’ll have hand sanitizer available in several locations.

  11. Social Distancing will be in effect- family units (living in the same household) should sit together and pews will be blocked off to help give guidance on social distancing in the sanctuary.  The balcony will also be closed at this time.

  12.  No “meet and greet” or bulletins at this time.

  13. There will be 2 free standing offering boxes in the lobby for you to drop your offering in, we will not be passing the offering plates.

  14. No judgment for those who decide to come or to stay home.  These are uncertain times and everyone will make the best decision for them and their family.  

  15.  If you are sick, please stay home.


Recommendations from the Attorney General’s Office:

  1. Strongly recommend at-risk population continue online church remotely.  This includes families with newborns, those 65 and older, and those with preexisting conditions.  This is our church’s recommendation as well.  However, we will not deny people entry into our worship services.  We’re asking that you use your own good judgment on this.  There has been no word on how long these recommendations will last.  Things may change as we progress through different phases of reopening.

  2. Ensure social distancing.

  3. Screen employees and volunteers for sickness. 

  4. Wear masks.

  5. Clean regularly.

  6. Provide visible signage to remind people about best hygiene practices.
