Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Grace and Peace in the name of Christ our Lord! I give thanks for each of you and the time we have joined together for in-person worship this summer. It has been a blessing to my life. With the uncertainty the COVID-19 virus and with a desire for intentionality, our Church Council has developed a three phase ministry plan:
- Plan A – Virtual Ministry (goes into effect when Coffee County has 225 active cases, if there is an outbreak in our congregation, we will immediately go into Plan A, and we will also follow the EMA’s guidelines)
- Plan B – Limited In-Person Ministry (Current protocol)
- Plan C – Expanded In-Person Ministry (Once there is reduced community threat)
As approved by Church Council, we are moving to Plan C which is expanded in person ministry. This means that we will hold in-person worship with social distancing and recomended mask usage. Begining November 1s, we will have Sunday School. Some of our classes will not be meeting in thier normal rooms becasue of the necessity to social distance. Please contact your Sunday School teacher about the plans for your class. We are holding children and youth ministry in a safe manner with the use of masks wearing and social distancing. We are not serving food during this time. The HUB is scheduled to start on September 2nd, however we will only have classes and discipleship ministry. Will will not have supper as part of the HUB ministry until further notice.
Please call the church office if you have questions about this process and our desire to ensure the safety of our congregation.
Grace and Peace,
Dr. Olivia Poole
