|Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, |
This morning Governor Ivey amended her health order. Beginning Monday, May 11th, the 10-person limit on gatherings has been canceled. However, social distancing of 6-feet is still encouraged. This is very good news and means we can now finalize plans to gather back together.
Please be in prayer as this Tuesday the officers will gather to finalize plans and make preparations to return to corporate worship. The Session has not made a final determination as to which Sunday we will gather back together but we will notify the congregation after our meeting on Tuesday.
Our current thinking as we approach the return to worship is as follows:
*Continue to offer live-streaming worship services and encourage anyone who does not feel comfortable coming back to church to stay home.
*Offer two morning worship services. More details to come!
*Offer an overflow room in the fellowship hall that will have a live feed of the worship service if more space is needed to spread out effectively.
*Sunday School will not be held onsite for the time being.
*A survey next week to understand the current thinking among our church family on returning to worship. This will help us plan accordingly.
*A comprehensive plan will be implemented for returning to church that will help keep everyone safe and strive to follow the ADPH Guidelines for Places of Worship.
Again we ask that you would pray for wisdom, health and safety, and joyful hearts as we anticipate resuming corporate worship!
I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” (Psalm 122:1 ESV)
By His grace and to His praise,
