from Senior Pastor, Dr. Richard Reed
Our church leaders have been diligent in working to protect our members and guests during this pandemic. Everyone knows the information about COVID-19 is constantly changing and the situation is very fluid. The Administrative Board has been taking the changing information into consideration as plans for opening the church have been refined. The date for gathering for in-person worship for all worship services is August 9, 2020.

The Administrative Board has adopted the following plan for opening the church for worship and activities. The opening will be conducted in three phases. Phase 1 will be for worship only with no childcare, Sunday School, or outside groups in the church. This phase begins August 9, 2020. Phase 2 will allow for small groups and meetings at the church, but no outside groups. This phase will take place when deemed safe. Phase 3 will be a return to all activities and ministry of the church and will take place when occupancy is 100%.
We will continue to evaluate this crisis and make decisions as the situation evolves. I want to remind you that we are a people of faith who trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for ALL things. Be prudent, be careful, do what is reasonable, and remember we will not live by fear. This is a serious situation but not one that should make us question our faith in Christ. Jesus is the Lord of all time and he is Lord of this moment. We believe that only you can determine when you feel safe returning to worship and church activities.
Please continue to pray for one another, our health care workers and First Responders, our nation, and our world, and let us continue to serve the Lord in all we do. Please contact myself or the church office if you have any questions or concerns.
Grace and Peace,
Dr. Richard Reed
