Coronavirus Protocol

Recognizing that opinions and guidance from political leaders, medical professionals, the media, the community, and our own congregation vary from one spectrum to the other, the elders are seeking to balance all of this and the risks to both the physical and spiritual needs of our members.  At the end of the day the elders make judgment calls; therefore, each of you will ultimately determine the risk you are willing to take one way or the other, and we honor and respect those choices.  

 

Worship Assemblies – In person and Zoom
 

Sunday Mornings 10:30 a.m., 
Wednesday Evenings 7:00 p.m., and
Other dates & times as called by the Elders.

The elders recommend considering the guidelines set forth by the CDC, the State of Texas Governor, and Attorney General; and, we ask that you agree to the following if you will be meeting at the building:

  • Members/Guests will sanitize hands upon entry. Individuals will determine how to greet one another and those wishes are respected at all times.  
  • Practice reasonable social distance while visiting with non-family members.
  • Observe and follow the special instructions taken during communion and contribution services. Extra caution will be taken to keep the entire congregation from touching the trays.  Communion will be prepared, presented, and taken in a sanitized manner.

If you meet one or more of the following items, please consider using the Zoom option for worship services for an appropriate amount of time.  

  • If you have a weakened immune system or live with/support someone who is.
  • If you have a reasonable belief that you may have been exposed to COVID19, or another similarly infectious disease.
  • If you or any member of your household are experiencing any symptoms commonly reported for COVID 19: including, but not limited to, fever, coughing, stomach issues, loss of taste or smell, etc.
  • If based on these guidelines your judgment is to stay home.

We are praying for everyone to stay safe and we continue to pray for our community leaders as they make difficult decisions while handling this crisis.

 

May God continue to bless us all,
