TECUMSEH CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE REGATHERING PLAN.

 

We are looking forward to meeting again! As we approach this time, we want to make you aware of some recommended guidelines our staff and church board have put into place. With these, it is our intent, to do our very best to ensure the safety of all our people. Below are actions we are taking and instructions we are offering to keep our local body of Christ healthy.

·         Tables/chairs/restrooms/used space will be sanitized before and after each service.

·         ENTERING AND EXITING THE BUILDING: We will be using both North and South entrances to our building. Leaving doors propped open and fans on for proper ventilation.

·         What we can do!

Be together! Smile! Greet from safe distance! WORSHIP CORPORATELY!

Please refrain from attending if you have signs or symptoms of, live with, or have been exposed to anyone with cough, fever, congestion etc. Please refrain from attending if you are an “at risk” group and are concerned for your well-being. We will continue to live-stream each week. If you’re not comfortable coming out yet, live stream via Facebook and You Tube will still be available.

(At least 6 foot apart) Parents please keep children with you at all times. We recommend you sit on the side of entrance you came in and use the same entrance to exit the building.

·         Hand sanitizing stations at each entrance will be available for use before and after service.

We encourage people, if necessary, to bring your own beverage: coffee/water, as shared community objects are discouraged from the CDC. Our coffee station will not be open. Our water fountain will be blocked off. No food items will be allowed to share.

·         Restrooms will be open with diaper changing stations available in both.

·         Placement for collection of tithes/offerings at each entrance/exit. We encourage online giving.

·         Altars will not be used at this time and will be placed in rooms beside platform. Chairs/table from foyer will be placed in back of sanctuary.

We will have signs up reminding of social distancing and safety procedures will be placed strategically in entrances, restrooms, foyer, and sanctuary. (Please No: hugging, handshaking, or physical interactions of the kind within 6 foot of those outside of your own family.)

·         Parents are to use their best judgement for playground activity.

·         At this time, we would like to inform you that no other groups will be meeting on building grounds (including but not limited to: Sunday School, Children’s Church, Children/Youth groups, Small Groups, Bible study groups, Crafting groups, etc. These will be further assessed as Fall approaches.

 

Finally- and this is very important, we do not engage in political rhetoric, disparaging remarks or even demeaning looks.  We place the emphasis on unity, acceptance and the Bond of Christ.  The Bible says: “Honor one another above yourselves.” That is what Christians are supposed to do.
