World Gospel Church Family & Friends,
The time has finally arrived for us to gather as a church again for worship and praise.
We are following the Governor’s Executive Order 20-26 of May 1, 2020. It says, “On or after May 8, 2020, religious services . . . may continue and will no longer be subject to limits on social gatherings. However, social distancing and other sanitation measures outlined in para. 6 will continue to apply.” These include: social distancing, hand sanitizing, recommended face covering, non-contact greeting and urging those over 65 or those with at-risk health conditions to stay home and watch services online.
In order to maintain social distancing as we are seated in the service we will need to spread out. Our sanctuary can accommodate about 150 socially distanced people (assuming families sit together). We will have two services at 8:30 and 10:30.
Entrance will be by the North doors only. When you arrive, please wait outside until the doors are opened about five minutes before the service. Please use the hand sanitizer readily available in dispensers. The sanctuary is being sanitized prior to each service for your protection. Please sit only in the designated pews or chairs and maintain a six foot distance between other worshipers. At the close of each service we will be dismissed by rows by ushers in order to maintain social distancing. It will feel like a wedding!
By all means greet one another verbally, but please refrain from handshaking and hugging. We will be able to enjoy these expressions of friendship and affection soon.
Wearing facial masks is recommended and bringing your own is ideal. We do have a limited supply available in the hallway as you enter.
There will be no offering plates passed. At the exits are boxes for offerings.
Sadly, there will be no Sunday School classes, Kids Worship, Nurseries or Fellowship time. Enjoy your coffee before arrival. Nursing moms or those with crying babies are encouraged to use the Prayer Chapel off the Gathering Room. Ask an usher for assistance. The service is piped into this room.
We look forward to seeing all of our church kids again, but we ask you please to keep your children with you at all times.
For those unable to attend we will be recording the 8:30 service which will be available online later Sunday morning.
It is time to worship the Lord together. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience.
