RE:  Resuming Church Services


On Sunday evening, May 24 your elder board, including Pastor Schroeder, met to discuss the possibility of resuming regular church services. It is the consensus of your board that we need to proceed as rapidly as is reasonably possible to resume normal church life.


Considerations included:


  1. Need of church body to be together for fellowship, group worship, and communication.
  2. Safety factors in response to the still present virus threat.
  3. Safety precautions such as hand sanitizing stations, proper spacing between individuals, order of service.
  4. What could be included in the resumed service, i.e. song service, communion, fellowship time.
  5. Congestion at church entrance.
  6. Legal aspects such as liability if someone got sick at an illegal service.
  7. How to divide the congregation if two services were necessary to comply with numbers permitted in Phase Two of recovery.
  8. How might children’s services be conducted to provide distancing and other necessary safety precautions.



It was decided to begin services on Sunday, June 7, 2020, PROVIDING PHASE 2 OF THE  RECOVERY PLAN IS IMPLEMENTED.

We encourage anyone who is not feeling well or is concerned about mingling with other people, to avoid services for a while longer.



Please note: Reopening depends on Phase Two lifting the ban on groups over 25.



Between now and then, the Pastor and other Elder Board members will be working hard to prepare for re-opening under what are very unusual circumstances.


During this time, it is important that we all work together to preserve the unity of the church. If you have questions please don’t speculate, but call one of the Elders for direct information.


God Bless,


Your Elder Board
