The staff met with Church Council on Monday evening, March 8th to discuss future worship plans and returning inside through May. While continuing to respect everyone’s safety and the strong desire to return to church, both in person and spiritually, several updates will begin to take shape.
Beginning on Palm Sunday, March 28th Sunday Morning Worship will move to one 11:00am service each week. Services will be held outdoors on the front lawn. These services will be live-streamed for those unable to come or who may feel safer at home. We continue to ask you to pre-register for services in order to keep attendance, for greeting and planning purposes. Attendees will still need to wear masks, bring their own chairs and will be asked to socially distance themselves.
In the event of rain or forecasted rain, the service will be moved inside with limited capacity, including the worship team. Pastor David and Facilities Director, Tammy Forrest will make that determination on Saturday evening. The update will be communicated via Facebook and our Mobile App.
Church staff will return to
work and the church offices will officially re-open on Tuesday April 6,
2021. Visits to the campus will continue to be limited to necessary business and by appointment only.
Another change that we are excited to share is that the church will be open to allow church-based meetings of up to 25 individuals inside beginning Monday, April 12th. All meetings, plans and room reservations must be communicated and reserved through Tammy Forrest.
As more and more people are getting their vaccines and COVID numbers are dropping, we continue to look forward to the time when we are back together in every way. We appreciate your love and support during this time as we continue to look for new and creative ways to stay connected and minister to you.
As requested by the Bishop of the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Church Council the church offices will continue to be closed, at this time. If you need to come to the church, please call ahead.
We will continue to evaluate as more direction comes from conference officials.
