September 2020

Dear Church Family,


I am so excited to inform you that we are coming back to in-person worship on Sunday,

September 13! It is my priority to offer you a SAFE worship experience! The traditional

worship service will be at 11 am in the Sanctuary. We will be asking you to wear masks

and social distance. The contemporary worship service will be at 9 am in the Connection

where you will also be asked to wear masks and social distance.


We have an amazing worship service planned for the next several weeks! We are offering

a Sunday Night service with a family meal at 5:00pm. You can bring your own picnic

or purchase a boxed lunch made by our Ain’t Your Mamas Kitchen ladies, $5 for adults,

children free. We will begin worship at 6:00. There will be painted sections on the lawn

behind the Fellowship Hall for your family to relax, enjoy picnic style supper followed by

worship! We will have designated parking spots for those who want to park your trucks

and sit on the tail gate! You will not be required to wear masks at this service.


Wednesday night activities will offer Youth, Children and Adult activities beginning

Wednesday, September 16. All groups will be small and if your event is inside, masks will

be required, along with social distancing. If the event is outside, masks will not be

required, however, please social distance when gathering together.


During my 31 day prayer challenge to you, myself and my family I have prayed for God to

hear my prayers for my family and our church. It is my desire to lead you through this

pandemic with God’s blessing. Safety has been and will continue to be a huge priority for

me for our church family. I believe we can come back to worship by using guidelines that

have successfully worked for many other churches. Social distancing, hand washing,

masks and hand sanitizer are a must as we all come back to worship together. If you do

not feel it’s the right time for you to return to worship, please stay home and watch our

live stream service.


If you have questions or want to talk with me please do so by calling me or emailing me.


Blessings,

Pastor Keith
