Church Guidelines for Reopening


Important Announcement

Greetings church members and visitors,

We are planning to reopen our worship services on Sunday, June 14th. We want to be extra careful and take all the necessary precautions to congregate together in a safe environment. We will work through three phases until we get back to normal. Phase One will lead us through the summer. In Phase Two we will reevaluate and make all the necessary adjustments. In Phase Three we should be back to normal or a “new” normal.

Phase One will be divided into two categories:

  1. The Leadership’s Responsibility
    1. There will only be a one hour service on Sunday morning.
    2. There will be no Sunday school or any other Bible studies.
    3. There will be no nursery, children, or youth ministry.
    4. We will encourage teachers to have bible studies via Zoom.
    5. We will have online messages for people unable to make it to church.
    6. We will sanitize the sanctuary after every service on Sunday.
    7. Ushers will direct traffic within the sanctuary.
    8. We will not pass out any bulletins.

2 .The Congregation’s Responsibility

    1. We encourage the congregation to practice social distancing.
    2. We also must practice social distancing in the parking lot.
    3. Out of respect for others, let us assume they do not want to be physically touched. We encourage hand waves or thumbs up.
    4. Everyone is required to wear a face mask.
    5. If you are sick (fever, cough, sore throat…) please stay home.
    6. We must minimize crowds in the aisles and the foyer.
    7. Bring your own bottled water. The water fountain will be closed.
    8. Pew Bibles will be removed. Please bring your own Bibles.

We may learn something new every week, so we must be open to change.


Love, Joy, Peace…

Pastor Albert Gerena
