Re-Opening Plans

October 15, 2020

Dear Loved Ones,

Since we temporarily suspended services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been looking forward to the time when we can come together again in person safely to worship, study and pray.  It is time to begin reopening our church!

We plan to reopen our church in phases.  The first phase will be in-person Sunday morning worship services with enhanced safety measures in place.

Our first in-person worship service will be Sunday morning, October 25, at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.

Please see the bottom of this message for details regarding the enhanced safety measures that will be in place and should be observed.  The health and safety of our members and guests are our top priority.  We want you to be safe and to feel safe.

Effective October 25, the time will change for our Sunday morning Bible studies on Zoom.  They will be from 9:00-10:00 a.m.  This timing will allow us to participate in Bible study, then travel to the church for worship service.

Please be praying with us for wisdom and the Lord’s guidance for the timing and processes for safely reopening our church.  We are prayerfully watching and evaluating the progress controlling COVID-19 in our community, along with guidelines from the Arizona Department of Health Services, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others.

Meanwhile, we hope you will join us online:

•     Via Zoom for our Bible studies on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings; and

•     On Facebook or our church website for our sermons on Sundays and devotions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We love you.  We miss you.  And most importantly, we are praying for you.

May God continue blessing you.


At Our Facilities

  • Temperatures will be checked.  We will not allow anyone to enter with a temperature of 100.4 degrees F. or higher.
  • Face masks must be worn while at our church.  We will have a supply of masks, if needed.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available.
  • Social distancing must be observed.
    • If you come with your spouse or family, of course you may sit together.
    • The pews and sidewalks will be marked to help maintain social distance.
  • Frequently touched items will be limited.
    • The order of service will be projected, instead of handing out printed bulletins.
    • Tithes and offerings will be collected in the church foyer at the beginning and end of service.  Offering plates will not be passed.
    • Bibles and hymnals have been stored, instead of being in the backs of the pews.
  • We will have instrumental music, but no singing.  Scientific research shows that singing helps spread viruses like COVID-19 and bacteria.
  • The sanctuary and restrooms have been sanitized and will continue to be sanitized.

Personal Safety Practices

  • Before coming to church, please:
    • Make sure you are free of any symptoms potentially related to COVID-19, including:
      • Fever of 100.4 degrees F. or higher
      • Cough (new onset in previous 14 days)
      • Shortness of breath
    • Avoid coming to church if you have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the previous 14 days.
  • We understand that many of our members and guests are older in age and/or have underlying health conditions, both of which raise risk levels.  If you are well, the decision to attend is yours to make depending on your comfort level.  If you are not comfortable attending in-person services, that is absolutely okay.
