I am happy to announce that we are resuming Sunday morning church services as of May 10th. Governor Abbot has lifted the stay at home order and has suggested guidelines for congregational worship. I know how David felt when he said, “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the LORD.”
The safety of our people is our utmost concern. Thankfully, we have all been educated on how to interact with the public in a safe manner. We plan to utilize the safeguards that our doctors and governmental officials have recommended. First of all, there are segments of the congregation that will be encouraged to continue worshipping online rather than attend church.
- Those not feeling well and having symptoms of concern.
- Those with pre-existing health conditions.
- Those living with vulnerable family members.
- Those with age concerns.
- Those working on the front lines of the medical industry.
We are also taking precautions within the framework of how we operate on Sunday mornings.
- The nursery, ages 0-5 years old, will function under the same guidelines that the state of Texas mandates for our daycare.
- Children’s ministry will take place with proper spacing and sanitization.
- Anthem Alive will meet separately without exceeding the suggested room limit.
- Hand sanitizers have been installed throughout the campus.
- Our Greeters will wear mask.
- The Offering will be dropped in at the doors.
- We will discourage hugging and handshaking.
- Altar ministry will be conducted cautiously.
- The café’ will be closed.
I look forward to seeing you in the House of God.
Love and blessing to you,
Bishop Randy Clark
