2 Service Update
The elders decided to continue the 2-service approach until the end of the year. This past Sunday, we requested feedback from both services and the response was overwhelmingly positive. The service times will remain 9am and 10:30am. We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation whether to alter the current plan. At the end of the year we will make another assessment for the new year.
Overall, it has been very encouraging to see a good spirit of unity through all of these changes as well as more people in both services, both first-time guests as well as the return of our people from Covid-19. As we have said before, the main purpose of the 2 services is to remove obstacles so that more of our church body can gather knowing the great importance of corporate worship and fellowship.
Moving forward …
•As an important reminder—the 9am service is mask required throughout the service. The 10:30am service is mask strongly encouraged during the singing and optional removal for the other parts of the service. We know there are a spectrum of views about masks and we are trying to compromise for the greater good of all. Out of a biblical concern for others, we ask that you honor our guidelines as much as possible.
•We offer Kids Bible Clubhouse for both services and nursery and childcare for the second service. We need nursery and childcare volunteers for the 9am service so if you are willing to help please let us know.
•The Sunday school classes will remain at 9am. Please start attending if you have not done so!
•Finally, as a gentle nudge, we have an increasing number of people in the 9am service but it would be nice to have a greater balance.
