COVID-19 Action Plan

Friday 13 November 2020 @ 8:00 a.m.

A message from Pastor Brian:

On Wednesday, November 11, 2020 new state-wide Covid-19 Directed Health Mandates (DHM) were initiated.

On Friday, November 13, 2020, Thayer County’s Covid-19 risk dial went into the red category (severe).

With these in mind and with an increase of positive Covid-19 cases and quarantines in our community, we have updated our action plan to include the following:

In-person worship services will continue on Sunday mornings. We will continue to live stream the full worship service via our Facebook page, Vimeo, and YouTube channel.

Social distancing-at least six feet-between households (people who live in the same house together) must be maintained at all times on the premises.

After the service, attendees will be ushered out, beginning with the back pews. Once dismissed, please exit the building immediately while continuing to maintain social distancing at all times.

We will refrain from celebrating the Lord’s Supper until further notice.

The use of masks is highly encouraged.

Worship music will play in the sanctuary (not on live stream) beginning at 9:00 a.m. until 9:35 a.m. when the pre-service organ music will begin. This provides an opportunity to worship and meditate in your seat before church starts.

Other weekly activities will be cancelled or held virtually until further notice.

If you are sick or showing symptoms of COVID-19, for the safety of yourself and others, please remain at home. Please take your safety seriously and act in accordance with your own best interests.

Please make sure Pastor Brian has your current email address so that he can send you the weekly devotional message. If there are people you know who would like to receive the weekly message, forward it on to them or let Pastor Brian know their email address.

If you need pastoral care during this time, please contact Pastor Brian.

If you have questions, please call Pastor Brian or an Elder. We will continue to reevaluate and adjust the action plan as needed. Please continue to pray for our community. We continue to look to Jesus, who is our ever-present help in time of trouble.
