To the congregation at Deerfoot Church of Christ, from your elders:
In observance of the government’s guidelines regarding 6ft social distancing (6FSD) to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we will have limited seating in the auditorium for approximately 100 people, with overflow in the fellowship hall. To accommodate this number, we will have two in-person worship services on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. with the 9:00 a.m. service streaming live on our website, YouTube channel and Facebook page for those worshipping from home. We ask households to sit together, maintain the 6FSD between other households and STRONGLY SUGGEST the wearing of face protection (to be removed for the Lord’s Supper).
If you are sick, if your health is vulnerable, or if you’re concerned about your health as we meet together, please stay home. You will be part of our worship assembly by viewing our live stream during services.
We will provide individually packaged Lord’s Supper unleavened bread & fruit of the vine at the doors leading into the auditorium prior to services, partaking of the Supper at the appropriate service time. Empty containers can be properly disposed at the building exits. At the end of service, the same men serving the Supper will be taking up the collection for the saints at the same auditorium doors.
Prior to and at the conclusion of the service, please fellowship outside, allowing for the 6FSD for others to move freely through the pathways, hallways, and lobby. We will be cleaning the building after each service.
Sunday and Wednesday Bible Classes
In-person Bible classes will not be held at the building until further notice. Instead, the Sunday morning adult Bible class will meet on Zoom Sundays at 5 p.m. and will be streamed live on our website, YouTube channel and Facebook page, and in lieu of Wednesday night Bible classes a pre-recorded Bible study will be streamed Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. on our website, YouTube channel and Facebook page.
Building Cleaning Volunteers Needed
As you can imagine, two worship services will require a bit of coordination to provide for each service (song leaders, prayers, scripture reading, ushers, audio/video), safety team, and cleaning. We will need to clean the auditorium, lobby, hallways, restrooms and fellowship hall after each service. Volunteers are needed.
We Love You
Thank you again for your kindness, generosity, and support. We love you.
PLEASE, regardless of your personal feelings toward COVID-19 and the response, help us adhere to these guidelines, including 6FSD, to ensure each other’s well-being and in keeping with Romans 13:1. We look forward to the day we can hug and shake hands.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of the elders or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Galatians 6:9-10
In His holy name,
The shepherds of Deerfoot Church of Christ
