COVID-19  UPDATE

If you have questions or would like to speak to Pastor Larry, please call the church 260-774-3516 or Pastor Larry 260-370-1143.

 

MASKS ARE SUGGESTED BUT NOT REQUIRED.

THERE WILL BE MASKS AVAILABLE IF YOU FORGET YOURS.


WORSHIP SERVICE RESUMES MAY 24, 2020


Worship services will resume May 24, 2020, but with some restrictions and changes.  To abide by federal and state guidelines, the Church Board has made adjustments to our service.

 

Beginning May 24, 2020, the state guidelines, for social gatherings, allow for our church to open.  However, the guidelines suggest that anyone over the age of 65, or anyone who has an underlying health condition (diabetes, heart disease, breathing or lung issues, auto immune diseases and such like) refrain from coming to church.  That will be your choice.

 

ENTERING THE CHURCH

 

The pew Bibles are in the pew, but we ask that you bring your Bible from home.  This will reduce the number of people handling the pew Bibles.

 

There will be no greeters and bulletins will be available as you enter the church.  Your offering may be placed in collection plates at the back of the sanctuary, mailed, or dropped off at the church during the week.  The congregation has been faithful to the Lord with your gifts and we appreciate your generosity.

 

To insure social distancing, we are asking you not to shake hands or give hugs.  (This will be hard because we are a hugging, hand shaking church.)  It is strongly suggested, but not required, that you wear a mask. 

 

We will be using every other pew or row of chairs.  Families who live together can sit together, but we ask that you give ample space between yourself and anyone you do not live with.

 

DURING THE SERVICE

 

Due to the number of people involved in preparing and giving Communion, there will be no Communion.  


There is no other portion of the service when more air is moving and more deep breathing is occurring than during singing.  Therefore, there will be no singing.  Nancy and Janene will be playing and the words will be on the screen for you to follow along.  The hymnals have been removed so multiple people will not handle them. 

 

The Children’s Story will be given from the front of the church, but children will not come forward. 

 

LEAVING THE SERVICE

 

Please remember to social distance and refrain from handshakes and hugs.

 

OTHER INFORMATION

 

Sunday School and Bible Study will be suspended until further notice. 

 

We will continue to record the Worship Service and post it on the website.  Every effort will made to have the service posted by Sunday evening, but our slow rural internet speed can require  three to four hours to post to the website.  We realize many have trouble watching the videos due to internet speed and we wish we had a solution. 

 

Unless there is a resurgence of the virus, all restrictions will be lifted July 4, 2020. 

 

Hang in there.  We will worship together!  We will sing together!  We will shake hands and give hugs!  Remember, no matter the circumstances, no matter the location, GOD IS WITH US ALWAYS!

WELCOME
