On June 13th the doors of the church re-opened to all. Everyone was on their post...the Parking lot Attendants, Ushers, Hostess, Deacons, Sound Room and the list goes on. There were 130 saints in attendance and the process was fast and smooth. Thanks to Trustee Dorothy Lamb and the re-opening committee for all of the hard work that went into making this re-opening successful.
There are some protocols that are intended to keep us all safe. All who enter must wear a mask, have their temperature checked, and use hand sanitizer before entering the sanctuary. The ushers will escort members to their seats, 6’ feet apart (families can be seated together), service will be limited to 1 hour, initially music will be pre-recorded, offering baskets will be kept at the rear of the church so that members can place their tithes and offerings upon entering or leaving. Congregants will remain in their seats during the welcome, with no handshaking, hugging, or walking around. Service will be approximately one hour to limit any potential spread, and new CDC approved filters will be fitted on the ventilation system. Sunday School, Bible Study and Children’s church will continue to be zoomed until the occupancy issues can be managed safely.
