Interim Worship/Ministry Plan D

Beginning Sunday, August 23 . . .
We will reopen our Nursery for the 8:00 and 11:00 services and provide Children’s Worship at all three of our morning worship services. We have sought the counsel of other childcare facilities and are seeking to follow the guidelines provided to us by health professionals as we train and equip our staff to lovingly and safely care for your children. Providing the Nursery at 8:00 and 11:00 will allow us to clean during the 9:30 service and prepare for the children coming for our 11:00 service. The Nursery will be available on Sunday Mornings by reservation.

Beginning Tuesday, August 25 . . .
On Tuesday and Thursday evenings we will provide rooms set up for social distancing for Congregational Communities not needing childcare to gather. A large majority of our Communities have embraced effective means for replacing the Sunday morning teaching time with Zoom and other methods, and we do not want to alter that at this time. However, there is an additional need for some of them to periodically meet in person. These bi-weekly gatherings will be available by reservation through our Christian Education Department. Communities will determine best use of time to meet the needs of their community.

Beginning Wednesday, August 26 . . .
Raiders and BYG ministries will meet weekly at The Barn.

Beginning Wednesday, September 9 . . .
Wednesday evenings we will prioritize gatherings spaces for communities needing childcare to meet. We will provide bi-weekly meeting opportunities by reservation along with our Nursery, Connect and Ignite ministries. This will allow the children to participate in Children’s Ministry while their parents are attending their respective Community gatherings. Communities will determine best use of time to meet the needs of their community.

Beginning Sunday, September 13 . . .
Raiders small groups will meet at the church while BYG small groups meet at The Barn.

Please Note . . .
We strongly encourage people at “high risk” and communities with a significant number of members at “high risk” to make wise decisions regarding when and if to gather together. We will continue to provide Worship streaming, Zoom and other means of ministry for those needing to avoid large gatherings during this time.

Details related to each ministry such as how to make a Nursery or room reservation, safety protocols, etc. will be sent to participants and parents in the coming days and will also be available online.
