Recommendation from our Bishop
 
Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr. has recommended that some churches return to remote worship once again, while others follow strict guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19. At this time we plan to continue worshiping in our sanctuary. As staff we will continue to assess the current circumstances in Finney County along with our congregations ability to worship safely. In observation of our Bishop’s recommendation, face coverings are now mandatory during all worship services and church activities. We strongly recommend that family units practice social distancing from one another. These are uncertain times for all of us and we ask that everyone continue to think of the safety of others. Updates on our worship schedule will continue to be posted here and on social media. Prayers and blessings for all.

We are worshiping in our building, but we must still consider the current circumstances. Your safety has been on our minds throughout this pandemic, and it continues to be our top priority. Below we have outlined our plans and recommendations for keeping everyone safe while worshiping with us.
 
 
 
Recommendations
  • Face coverings are now mandatory and social distancing is strongly recommended.
  • Please use our automatic doors if possible.
  • Avoid hand shakes and hugs.
  • Please respect those around you as we all have different comfort levels.
  • We ask that parishioners fill out attendance slips so that we can contact you in case of an outbreak.
 
For Your Safety
  • We have roped off every other pew to aid in social distancing. Extra seating is available in the Chapel, Wesley Hall, and the balcony.
  • We have removed items from our pews as to prevent the passing of germs.
  • We discourage congregational singing at this time to prevent the spread of germs.
  • There is no coffee service in the Welcome Center at this time.
  • In place of Children’s Church we are offering single use/take home Busy Bags for all ages.
  • Offering will be collected in baskets at the entrances to the sanctuary rather than by passing the plate.
