Dear Church Family,
It is a high priority to make our church a safe, secure place for you and your family to worship. Due to the ongoing concern about the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we believe it is prudent to exercise caution in a number of ways.
The spread of illnesses like the flu and the coronavirus is something we take seriously. In addition to the safety measures we normally follow, we’re taking extra precautions during this time to help keep you and your family safe and healthy. These measures include the following procedures:
· Sanitizing classrooms, bathrooms, and other high traffic areas before and after services.
· Additionally, wiping down door handles, and other frequently touched surfaces.
I am closely following news from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about best practices to help contain the spread of sickness. We will update our policies and procedures with the latest information and communicate with you as necessary.
Of course, we need your help too. Here’s what you can do to keep yourself and others safe and healthy:
· If you need to cough or sneeze, cover your mouth with a sleeve or tissue.
· Wash your hands often in warm water for a minimum of twenty seconds and encourage your entire family to do the same. Our volunteers will ask children to wash their hands if they visit the restroom while they’re in our care.
· Use hand sanitizer often.
· If you or your family members are experiencing, or have recently experienced, symptoms associated with the flu or the common cold (fever, persistent cough, headache, chills, or unexplained rash), we ask that you stay home from church.
Above all keep calm and take common-sense action to keep yourself and family healthy. While we will not take unnecessary risks, we must also remember that we are people of faith and trust God during these seasons of uncertainty. Our God is sovereign, our protector, and our healer.
Brothers and Sisters, please stay focused and keep your faith. Let Go and Let God take control of this situation. Above all, please be in continuous prayer.
