Here is the latest on what we are doing in light of COVID 19:
Now that Louisiana is in Phase 1 of reopening, churches are able to meet as long as attendance does not exceed 25% capacity of the room. In order to meet that requirement, we are moving Worship to the Sanctuary, which seats at least 2,000 and provides more than enough space for us to spread out at least six feet and every other pew. With that in mind, we will resume in person Worship on Sunday, May 31, at 11:00 am.
Before we begin meeting in-person and as we continue, we want to be sure all steps are being taken to ensure the safety of everyone who attends. What follows is a list of changes that will be in place for in-person Worship:
Entrance will only be through Sanctuary doors (Topeka entrance and ramp will be available for those unable to enter Sanctuary doors on Olive)
Distancing of at least 6 feet between worshipers (except for family units already living in the same house)
We will not pass the offering baskets. A dropbox will be located in the Sanctuary and our online site for offerings
Hand sanitizer will be available for all who enter and exit
Everyone will be required to wear a mask (can be removed for those doing Scripture readings, prayers, etc.)
Welcome and greeting time without hugs and handshakes
No congregational singing at this time
Communion will continue on the first Sunday of each month but served with proper distancing at stations throughout the Sanctuary
No nursery/childcare at this time
No in-person Sunday School until further notice
Restrooms will be limited to 2 people at a time
Transportation in the church van will be limited to four passengers at a time with distancing and masks required
Changes will be modified as needed according to CDC guidelines and monitored each week and as reopening phases change in Louisiana.
For those unable or not ready to attend in person at this time, we our live stream on our Facebook page at 10:55 am and archive the services here on our Worship page. You are invited to tune in and invite others to do so as well.
You can give your offering here on our website donation page
