Please note: we have done our best to follow the State of Indiana in its Back on Track Indiana plan, and we will continue to do so. Should the situation with COVID-19 deteriorate and the State revise dates within the plan or backtrack on phases, we will adapt accordingly.
That being said, here are the current plans:
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP SERVICE at 10AM
- We ask that you sit every other row and utilize the balcony as well so we can distance ourselves appropriately.
-At the current time, there will not be Sunday school, children’s church or nursery.
-Functions like coffee and donuts will also not take place. BYOC (Bring Your Own Coffee).
-We will have a centralized location for offering to be placed in before or after the service. We won’t be passing an offering plate.
-We will only be using the South entrance to limit the amount of the building being used so that staff can focus on cleaning a smaller area.
-Families: meet in the auditorium and you will need to use south entrance only. There will be a children's sermon on Wednesday nights; the CE will place a child activity in your mailbox for them to do during the service.
-Youth: Meet in Fellowship Hall for a worship night. We will be spreading out and keeping the 6 ft. distance recommendations. You will need to use the Fellowship Hall entrance only.
There will be no children's classes or nursery for any service at the present time. Hand sanitizer is available; please refrain from shaking hands. If you are not feeling well or have any concerns, we ask that you not attend.
Questions you may have:
*When will Sunday school, nursery and children’s church start back up?
Answer: It’s looking like the earliest these things could start back up is July 4, based on information in the Back on Track Indiana plan.
*If I am older than 65 or at greater risk for COVID-19 does that mean I can’t come to church?
Answer: It doesn’t mean you can’t come to church. However, the CDC along with local government guidelines recommend those who are 65 and older and those with greater risk for COVID-19 should continue to stay home.
*If I am not feeling well should I come to church?
Answer: In the past, we have all come to church with a cold or a sniffle from time to time. Usually, the rule is no fever for 24 hours and you’re good. This is
quite different. If you are feeling unwell, please do your part and stay home.
*If I have been to church and end up testing positive for COVID-19 what should I do?
Answer: Contact the church chairman as soon as possible. Your name will remain confidential but it is imperative we know.
*Do I have to wear a mask?
Answer: No, wearing a mask is not mandatory. The CDC and local government recommend that you wear masks, but there is not a mandate to do so. Each
individual will make that decision for himself or herself.
*Can I still watch the whole service online after we start meeting together?
Answer: Over these next few weeks, we will continue placing the service online. The time when they are available will change when we have one service on
Sundays. In the long term, it is likely we will return to having just the audio portion posted online. This is something that is continuing to be discussed.
