Public Worship and Weekly Bible Studies Have Resumed

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I am pleased to share the following joyous news with you. The Healthy Congregation Committee has set the return to a single worship service for Sunday, August 23, 2020, at the regular 10:30 a.m. starting time.

In order to return to a single service, there are some concessions that must be made. If you ae not feeling well, please stay at home until you are feeling better.

Social distancing guidelines will continue. In addition to the Sanctuary, church members and visitors may sit in the choir area, the Narthex, or the Parlor. Due to the increased number of people at worship, face masks need to be worn if possible. In order to accommodate the increased number of people in the sanctuary, it is requested that family groups sit next to each other, while leaving 6 feet to the next church member on either side. Pews will continue to be roped off to maintain social distancing. The committee also asks that we refrain from shaking hands and hugging.

Holy Communion will be offered during the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays and Pastor Knobloch will provide those directions at the service. The manner in which the sacraments will be delivered will be different to limit contact. Reverence will be maintained however we will all need to work together and give a little as we adjust to these temporary, small changes.

Sunday School will continue at 9:30 a.m. for the youngest classes. The Young Adults and Sr. Classes are not yet ready to resume due to limits on where those classes can be taught and still observe social distancing.

Please join me in praying for our church family and in praying for continued good public health rates of COVID-19 in Montague County and the City of Bowie.

Of course we also must remember that any increases in COVID-19 cases may cause state or county officials to change the rules and that could impact our worship plans.

Please thank the Healthy Congregation Committee for their work in supporting our Church Elders desire to return to a single worship service.

I look forward to seeing and worshipping along with you on August 23, 2020.

God’s Blessings to you,

Mike Jones, Congregational President
