Dear Church Family,
We hope that during these challenging times of COVID-19 that you have been healthy and faring well under the circumstances. Please know that you have been in our thoughts and prayers and we are eager to see you again.
After 8 weeks of using online resources like Facebook Live and YouTube, we are excited to announce that we have a tentative start date for in-person services. Barring any unforeseen changes and regulations from our governing authorities, we plan to start services back on Sunday, June 7th at 11:00am. We will have a single service with no Sunday School and no opening fellowship time. Please understand that we will not offer Nursery, Toddlers or Children’s Church at this time. As we progress with this plan throughout the summer, meet and re-evaluate regularly, we look to be able to add back our regular programs in a safe and timely manner. We will also continue Sunday evening services online.
We will still utilize measures and precautions to ensure the health and safety of the church family. We are asking all church members to:
Keep using social distancing guidelines of 6 feet between individuals or families
Sit together as families to best utilize the space available in the building
Feel free to wear a mask if you choose to do so but understand, masks are not mandatory
We will have hand sanitizer throughout the buildings
Communion will be pre-packaged to avoid passing trays
Offering boxes will be available in the foyer for you to place your tithes and offerings in. We would also like to remind you that we have the online option of PayPal that will continue to be used from now forward for your convenience
We will utilize the Fellowship Hall as overflow if needed
We are excited to finally be able to talk about gathering again as a family as we are sure that you are too. It may not feel like it but God’s Word continues to spread, possibly more than at any other time in history, beyond the church building and even during these difficult times. God moves even when the church family cannot get together. Decisions are being made. Family members and friends are asking questions about God and how they can do things different. Continue to be ready to give answers to those questions as the Church looks for ways to be the Church, now and whenever the “new normal” gets here. Take this time to reflect on the blessings that God has blessed us with, evaluate what you and your family can do to deepen your faith and commitment to the Lord in your “new normal”, focus on what we do have as opposed to what we do not have, and continue to bless others as God has blessed you.
In Hope and Love,
The Elders of CCCoC
