Public Safety Update

August 2, 2020

The elders have made the decision to continue postponing the reopening of our facilities until further notice. The elders will continually monitor the virus situation in an effort to determine when it is deemed practical and safe to commence “live” services based on the recommendations of the government and medical authorities and, of course, their own judgment of what is appropriate and safe for our congregation. The congregation may be assured that every effort will be made to reopen our facilities when it is appropriate and safe to do so.

Our elders met to discuss when we might reopen for in-person services on Wednesday.  We are targeting August 2 for our first service back together.  This is a tentative date.  The staff will begin preparations for safe worship together for August 2, and we certainly hope all goes as planned.  Of course, as new information is released from the CDC, etc. the elders may need to adjust the reopening date.  We will continue to keep you informed along the way.

We do want to emphasize this: If you are remotely uncomfortable attending service in person, please stay home and continue to engage in worship and study through our online broadcasts.  Some of our members are in high risk categories, and there is no way to guarantee safety.  We will do our best though.  The services will be modified to limit contact and allow for social distancing.  We will do what we can to prevent the spread of the virus.

If you feel at all like you should stay at home, please do so and continue to worship along with us online.  We will broadcast live services that day and for the foreseeable future.  We will also continue to broadcast live on Wednesday nights.

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact the office.

Last Thursday the elders and staff met to discuss the possibility of having public assemblies again considering the ongoing Coronavirus issue. It was decided that it would prudent to wait a couple more weeks and discuss again. That will allow some time to pass to see how things are progressing across DFW. In the meantime the elders ask that everyone continue to participate in our live services. Stephen Patterson, David Vehon and others have done a great job of making sure our services are super high quality. In fact, we’ve received several unsolicited positive comments from non-members who have visited our services online.  Live Service times continue: Sunday 10:00 a.m. / Wednesday 7:00 p.m. / Friday 7:00 p.m.

Personally, I want to encourage you to share our YouTube Live services with friends and family. Wouldn’t it be something if God used you to save the soul of someone you care about just by passing on our website.

Feel free to call the elders or staff with any questions or thoughts.

In view of the uncertainties surrounding the Coronavirus, the Elders have decided to temporarily suspend all services of the congregation immediately with the exception of our Sunday morning 10 am worship service.

Members should feel free to make the decision relative to attendance at that service based on their personal situation. This applies to both the English-speaking group and the Spanish-speaking group. We will reassess this decision frequently as more information becomes available.

Please continue to pray for those affected worldwide and let us know if you have questions.

On Sunday we will modify our communion to meet sanitary guidelines and we will not fill out attendance cards. 

We are temporarily suspending the following:

Sunday morning 9 am Bible classes for all ages and Joy Explosion

Our Newcomers Luncheon

Wednesday:  meals, Awana, adult and teen Bible studies

Small groups, ladies’ dinners, events, etc.

Real Recovery meetings will be done by video conference – Contact Mike Meierhofer.
