Updated Announcement from the Shepherd's regarding targeted May 10th, 2020 Return to Worship   (Revised, May 5th, 2020)

To the flock,

The leadership team met Monday, May 4th, to go over the survey you completed and discuss the Corona virus directive. We have made some revisions that are effective immediately regarding meeting together for worship on Sunday at the building.

Hand sanitizer will be in the foyer. There will be a few cloth masks available for you to take.   Communion sets will be available on tables just inside the auditorium. Take one as you go to sit down, as trays will not be passed.  Or, consider bringing your own communion supplies.  

Service 1 - from 9:30-10:15AM. This service requires you to wear masks.

Service 2 - from 11-11:45AM. This service encourages you to wear masks but masks are not required.

The 45 minutes between services will allow members to leave and for the building to be sanitized.

To ensure the required physical distancing, each service will be limited to approximately 65 attendees. The 11AM service will be Livestreamed. The worship service will not be pre-recorded.

To comply with soical distancing, when arriving at the building, please do not congregate outside on the steps, in the foyer, or fellowship area. Each family should remain together and enter immediately. Please refrain from physical touch or contact with other families. Smiles, waves and long-distance high-fives are encouraged! There will be signs inside and out to remind everyone on keeping social distancing in place.

Sanitize your hands on entry with your own sanitizer or use sanitizer at stations in the foyer.

These areas will be closed/off limits: Nursery room, office areas upstairs, entire downstairs and playground.

Alternate pews will be marked off for families to sit in every other pew. Please sit with your family and allow at least 6 feet between the next family if more than one family is seated on the same row.

Nothing will be passed or distributed: no bulletins. Offering collection plates will be left at the back on tables for contributions. Prewrapped individual communion cups with bread will be placed in the back.  Pick one up on the way to your seat if you do not bring your own communion. Trash cans will be at the back for disposal during exit.

At the end of service, the elders will dismiss the congregation row by row. As you are dismissed, please sanitize your hands, exit the building and do not congregate anywhere inside or on the steps outside. Remember to keep your family together and with you at all times to follow social distancing guidelines. It is sad and difficult that children cannot interact with other children, but it is very necessary right now.

While we wait for things to stabilize, we will offer online versions of every class or service that we offer in person.

Romans 14:6 modified for today could say, those who stay at home do so in honor of the Lord, and those who attend do so in honor of the Lord.

Our pledge to those who need more time before they are ready to meet with us: No guilt trip. No pressure. All you have from us is our love, prayers and support.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.  Your Shepherds
