How We are Loving Each Other Through the Pandemic:
We are taking some risks to our health by meeting together these days. Although our state government has relaxed some regulations regarding gatherings for worship, we are aware of the recommendations of health experts, and we wish to be wise and protect each other.
Here are some things we are doing: We ask everyone to wear facemasks covering our nose and mouth while indoors in our facility. Our deacons take our temperatures and offer hand sanitizer at the door before we enter the church. We have no more than 25 people in each of our two large meeting areas, and we have television monitors and speakers throughout the building to create maximum spacing and still be able to listen and see our services with safe distancing. Our rooms are cross-ventilated with outside air as best as we can manage. (Dress warmly, since we won't be able to maintain optimal warmth during the winter!). We encourage our attendees to engage in fellowship outside the building while practicing social distancing before and after worship services.
Our services are broadcast on "Facebook Live" through our Facebook account, and folks at high-risk or who are not feeling well can listen at home or anywhere!
We do not feel that these constraints "take away our freedoms". We feel we are free to love and protect each other during these difficult times.
