Worship Assembly Update
We are thankful to God for His providential care during this difficult time.
The restrictions for large gatherings have been relaxed a bit and we have updated the guidelines for our scheduled services on Sunday accordingly. We are allowed to have 75 people in the auditorium for each service, so we will continue to have a 9AM and an 11AM service which are largely the same. Visitors are welcome at either service. Members have been asked to give preference to a service based on last name.
Both Sunday services will have the same sermon and the same Lord’s supper introduction. Song leaders and prayer leaders will be different.
Provisions been made to allow some worshippers to sit and participate in more isolated areas. Numerous additional steps have been taken to ensure the safety of all our beloved brethren at the building. (Our members have been informed of these. If you are visiting and wish to know more, please click “Contact Us” on the menu bar above.) We have a special opportunity to honor God by coming together in worship, while at the same time showing loving care and concern for every member and visitor.
Texas.gov maintains the same warning regarding those who may be more susceptible to the virus. The Open Texas Checklist Page says, “If you are 65 or older with pre-existing health conditions, this places you at higher risk. The virus that causes COVID-19 is still circulating in our communities. We should continue to observe practices that protect everyone, including those who are most vulnerable.”
We will continue to have the livestream links available each week. Those links will be posted above this message on Saturday. May God bless and keep you all as we strive to find a sensible way to come together and remain safe.
