Hello Church! Get excited! Preparations are underway for us to meet corporately once again! We plan to have two worship services, starting on June 7th, at 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM, and keep them available LIVE online.
We must be wise about how we approach gathering during this time. Please read the following guidelines to keep in mind while worshiping together.
You are encouraged to wear a mask if you prefer it, this is not mandatory.
We will have chairs setup for 6 foot spacing and family units should sit together. All children must stay with their family. All children are welcome in the service with us. We aren’t afraid of a little noise and chaos.
We will have sanitation stations in multiple locations.
We will sanitize the room and high-touch surfaces after each service.
Kids will be given a “worship bag” for service
Offering baskets will be placed at the back of the sanctuary
In order to make relaunch as smooth as possible and follow cdc guid lines. we set up a link for you to reserve your spots in the service below! (This is to give us a ballpark of how many to expect)
Conversations should be held outside in the parking lot and fresh air as much as possible.
As we begin planning our church relaunch keep in mind these 3 people.
1. Red light: They are morally opposed to the reopening. They believe it’s better to play it safe as long as possible for the well being of others and themselves. They feel obligated to love others this way.
2. Yellow light: They are going to proceed with reopening, but with an abundance of caution. They will want face masks, hand washing, social distancing, and as much as you can do in place to be safe.
3. Green light: They are ready to go back to normal today. They feel morally obligated to eat in restaurants, go shopping, and attend church. They feel obligated that this is in the best interest of others.
None of these attitudes are wrong, but we will have all 3 in our church, and they will all 3 believe their position is right. Which means the Jesus issue we need to be concerned about is love, humility, and unity.
Philippians 2:5-7 says
You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. 6 Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. 7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, 8 he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. 9 Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
May we represent Jesus in our attitude and response towards others! In Christ, Shelby Alliance Leadership Team
Please let us know you are coming and how many from your family!
