5 Ways to Stay Safe and Love One Another
- If you are sick at all, (fever, cough, etc.) or have been exposed to someone who has or is being tested for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, please stay home and watch the service live on Facebook or once it’s posted online.
- Chairs will be setup in the small gym for households to sit about six feet apart from other families for social distancing.
- Use hand sanitizer or wash hands with soap. We ask if you have a fever to take your temperature. If its over 100.4 we ask you stay at home and rest.
- Follow all instructions given by leaders, ushers, and volunteers.
- Show love and respect for people with different opinions with both your words and actions. Our desire is to gather together and worship Jesus in spirit and in truth.
Federal guidelines suggest Face Coverings be worn in public places during all phases of the pandemic. However, per Executive Order 20-81 there are legal exemptions for people who are unable to wear or tolerate a face covering due to medical or mental health conditions or other reasons. There are also situations in which a face covering may be removed, such as when eating or drinking, provided that social distancing is maintained. With the Executive Order, we are told not to confront a person about why they are not wearing a face covering and to not report the person to state or local authorities, including law enforcement. Instead, we are to ask the person to maintain social distance, if possible.

Note should Christians be told we can not meet together anymore:
Christians are bound by their faith to worship together. Time-honored rites and traditions, including prayers, singing, Scripture reading, communion, baptism, fellowship, and a laying of hands in blessing, are among those elements that comprise the free exercise of religion. The first Amendment to the United States Constitution known as ‘Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press’ says: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
