We’re so grateful to the Lord for His continued goodness and divine care as He has promised to be with us in all circumstances and situations (see Psalm 46:1–3).

Dear Friends,

In- person worship is available Sundays at 8am, 9:45 & 11:20am, but we will continue to permanently offer live-stream services via the church website, Facebook, and the Boxcast App. Worship is available to watch any time of the week.

As we resume in-person attendance at worship, we will be focusing on safety in every decision.

We will follow rules issued by state and local governments regarding the number of people in the building. (Subject to change without notice.)
  1. In-person worship will be at 50% capacity. We will continue to broadcast all worship times every Sunday on our website, the Boxcast app or Facebook.
  2. The most important guideline is, “if you are not feeling well, please stay home.” This is regardless whether the symptoms are those of COVID-19. Seek medical care, call 911 if necessary
  3. Everyone seeking to enter the building will receive a no-touch temperature scan to check for fever. Entry allowed only if temperature does not exceed 100.4 F. Face masks will be required, with masks provided for anyone who does not have one. Acceptable masks should cover the nose and mouth.
  4. There will be nothing in the pews to touch or pass contagion. All bibles, hymnals, attendance sheets will be removed.
  5. There will be one entry and exit door for the building, both clearly marked. Also, there will be roped off space/separated walkways.
  6. Inside the building, we will maintain the now familiar 6-foot distancing by taped markings on the floor, alternating the pews in use and taping 6-foot marks in the pews. Vacant pews will be designated with masking tape across the entry points. Ushers will direct you to available seating.
  7. Offering Plates are at the doors. You can leave your offering before or after worship. No offerings will be collected by ushers. You can also make online offerings during worship on your cell phone. Instructions will be on the sanctuary screens.
  8. There will be no handshake at “Sharing of the Peace.” Until the pandemic passes, we will not be sharing the peace physically with our brothers and sisters – it is acceptable to wave or share the peace sign with others in attendance.
  9. Single-use communion items will be provided at the front door. Regular and gluten-free wafers are available with grape juice. Communion will be self-administered or by an immediate family member in your group.
  10. Sorry, for now, no coffee service is allowed.
  11. The kitchen is closed, and there is no nursery care for children in the immediate future. Children are welcome to attend worship! Take-home busy bags will be available to help kids stay focused.
  12. If someone becomes sick during the service, they will be taken to the Conference room until transport or ambulance is called, depending on the seriousness of the person’s condition.
  13. For sanitizing purposes, available restrooms are limited to the first floor – one family at a time. Please use sanitizer to clean all areas you use in the restrooms before leaving.
  14. If a worship attendee contracts COVID, we request they call church office and self-report. They then must self-quarantine for 14 days.
  15. We have installed UV light cleansing systems in all HVAC systems in the building. UV light will kill all viruses, bacterias and molds as the air passes over the light in the systems, making the building a much safer place for all of us. Learn more here.
 

We are here for you! If you need anything, call the church office at 281-367-7016 to talk with one of our pastors or to share your prayer requests.

In the coming days and weeks, as the situation evolves and regulations change, we will provide additional updates. We pray God continues to give you a spirit of peace, increase your faith, and provide for your every need.
