August Connect: COVID-19 Reopening Plans
Plans for Church Reopening
We are all anticipating the day when we can gather back at church. As has been often emphasized, the priority is to do what’s wise, safe, and best…both for the congregation and for the community.
Under the current circumstances, reopening is not a simple process. Thus, the church staff has invested a great number of hours researching, reading, and discussing recommendations and best practices as provided by the federal, state, and local authorities, complemented by ideas from several state Baptist associations, including North Carolina.
With the state currently under continued restrictions, we’re hoping to be able to announce by the middle of August a carefully detailed and incremental plan, one which has options for everyone. We are working with a priority in mind that makes coming to church safer than going to a retail store, restaurant, or other local business.
We appreciate your continued prayers for the Lord’s guidance and wisdom as we seek solutions moving forward.
