Hope Community Church of Lowell Update 

 

Hey there, Hope Church!
Well, our target date for the first live service at Hope Church is fast approaching. This Sunday, June 14, we will be gathering in our building for the first time in a while. The Council has created this re-opening plan in an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible. We ask that you do your best to follow the plan. If you have specific questions, please reach out to your elder/deacon or Pastor Andy. Here’s to taking a big step towards returning to normal!
 
>> Hope Church COVID-19 Worship Re-opening Plan <<
 

The safety of our congregation and guests is our primary concern and we take this responsibility very seriously. We ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this opening process. If you are experiencing COVID-19 or any illness symptoms of any kind, we ask that you refrain from attending. Also, if you are uncomfortable attending or are considered high risk, please continue to watch the services live streaming on Facebook or YouTube.

1. Hope Church is planning to hold our first service back in our building on June 14, 2020.
* At present, we are planning on one service at 10:00 AM.
* If the need arises for a second service, provisions will be made, and times well-advertised.

2. Council recommends that those attending worship put on a protective face covering before entering the building.

3. Greeters and Welcome staff
* There will be a greeter outside in the parking lot to direct people lining up to enter the building.
* Welcome staff will maintain physical distancing.

4. We will be utilizing ushers to seat attendees
* All will be expected to maintain 6’ physical distancing while waiting to be escorted into church and into the church sanctuary.
* Ushers will seat families together. Children are expected to stay with their parents while in the building.
* Doors will be open 20 minutes prior to the service.
* Bulletins will not be available at the church but can be accessed online.
* Ushers will dismiss congregants by row at the end of the service.

5. Coffee Service- Postponed until further notice.

6. Children’s Programs- Postponed until further notice.

7. Nursery Service- Postponed until further notice.

8. Potluck lunches- Postponed until further notice.

9. Kitchen will be closed.

10. Restrooms
* The two restrooms in the front of the building will be open. Since restrooms are less safe from contagion spread than other areas, please use only if necessary.
* There will be no access to the back of the building (Children’s Worship and Nursery areas).

11. Offering
* Offering boxes will be available for tithes and offerings.

12. Cleaning and Sanitation
* The church building will be sanitized after each service and any other use.

13. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available as you enter the building.

As we are all aware, things can change quickly, and this plan may change based on direction given from church Council and Governor Holcomb.

The Council of Hope Church

We will be communicating with you by email, Facebook and phone. Please make sure you check your spam folder for updates.
 

Let’s keep our trust in the Lord our Healer! We have wonderful promises in God’s word of his protection over our well being.

Remember the promise from Psalm 91:5-7
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

Most of all, keep showing love in practical ways to those who need it most.
Pastor Andy
