re-gathering phase 2
We are pleased to announce Phase 2 of our Regathering Plan, with guidelines for onsite/in-person Sunday School classes.
With an exhaustive examination of the various options, and seeking to maintain the recommended safety protocols related to COVID-19, the following format offers the best option for the initial step in our regathering process. Again, this is an initial step with the anticipation of further evaluation and subsequent changes after the first month of implementation.
A shared spirit of cooperation is vital to the success and sustainability of this next step in our regathering initiative. Please read carefully the information provided and share with others as you have opportunity.
Adult Sunday School Classes will be meeting on alternate Sundays for 6 weeks (September 13th - October 18th). Below is a table showing when each Adult Sunday School Class will meet. Classes have been assigned to “A-week” and “B-week” groups.
A-week Groups will meet on Sundays: September 13, September 27, and October 11.
B-week Groups will meet on Sundays: September 20, October 4, and October 18.
All classes will meet at 9:30 on their assigned Sundays. We anticipate most groups meeting in their normal space.
To accommodate as many as possible, there will continue to be 3 Sunday morning worship gatherings. Except for those in the at-risk categories, or experiencing symptoms of illness, everyone is encouraged to attend one of these three services and invite guests.
Please consider on the weeks when your class is not meeting onsite:
Attending the 9:30am Worship Gathering rather than the 11:00am. This will allow more space in the 11:00am Gathering.
Serving in some capacity. Many who were serving before the pandemic are unable to now. There are opportunities to serve in Kid’s Ministry, as an usher and greeter, and on the media team.
By doing either of these things you are loving your neighbor through an act of sacrificial service! Both actions help allow more people to gather safely.
Questions and Answers
What about Kids and Students?
We will have Sunday School every Sunday for Kids and Students at 9:30. We will offer childcare (Birth-PreK) during all 3 Worship Gatherings. Again, this is where we need volunteer help!
What about masks?
We encourage the use of masks especially when safe distancing cannot be practiced. We believe that the best way to love your neighbor during this time is to keep a safe distance and wear a mask.
What about coffee and donuts?
We will not be able to serve food or have any drink stations open. We also ask that groups not bring outside food in to serve to their class.
