IN PERSON SERVICES WILL RESUME ON AUGUST 23, 2020.
As we return to in person services, we will offer two services, one at 8:30 am in the Fellowship Hall and one at 10:30 am in both the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall. Livestreaming of the 10:30 am service will continue to be availabe.
Nursery will be available during both services & Sunday School, for ages 0-2. Little Church for ages 3-5 will be available only during the 10:30 am service. Sunday School is available for all ages from 9:40-10:15 am.
At this time, we ask that you please RSVP for the service you wish to attend, as numbers will be limited in each service. RSVP forms can be found at the bottom of this page, or on Realm.
To minimize the risk of in-person gatherings, we will be following the counsel of our local medical community as well as the guidelines from Governor Reeves, the Mississippi Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Please look through the following points of clarification and steps to help promote safety.
At Risk: Those who are at risk or caring for someone at risk—due to age or underlying medical conditions—or who are feeling poorly, or possibly exposed to the virus, or recently returned from traveling in a group, are encouraged to continue to participate in the 10:30 a.m. livestream worship service for now. And, as always, the sermon recording will be available after 12 p.m. on Sundays.
Masks: We are requiring masks for everyone who attends a service in-person, with the exception of young children. Please bring your own mask. We also strongly recommend you maintain social distancing of 6 feet while inside the building and avoid greeting each other by shaking hands, etc. Additionally, we strongly recommend you follow healthy hygiene practices. Touchless soap dispensers have been added to the restrooms. Sanitizing stations are located in the breezeway, Sanctuary foyer, coffee bar and Fellowship Hall.
Gathering Size: We will offer in-person worship for 80 people in the Fellowship Hall at 8:30 a.m. We will also offer in-person worship at 10:30 a.m. for 80 people in the Sanctuary and 80 people in the Fellowship Hall. We request you to register in advance on the website for the service you desire to attend.
Seating: Ushers will be present at the exterior doors of the breezeway and the Sanctuary foyer to help guide you to your seat. Every other pew in the Sanctuary will be closed off to maintain distance between families. The ushers will seat one family per designated row in the Sanctuary. Also, they will seat one family per table in the Fellowship Hall.
Touchless Service: Bibles, pens, and hymnals have been removed from the Sanctuary pews. Additionally, when we celebrate the Lord’s Supper, commercially packaged communion elements will be included with your Worship Guide in an individual or family packet. At the end of the service, the congregation will be dismissed in sections. Please do not congregate in the lobbies but fellowship together once you exit the church building.
Singing & Readings: Music will continue to be a part of our worship services; however, we ask that masks remain on at all times.
Tithes & Offerings: A physical offering plate will not be passed around, rather donation boxes will be located at the back of the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall at each service. Alternatively, you may give online.
Enhanced Sanitation: The church will be sanitized between services. Enhanced sanitation protocols will be conducted throughout the week.
