Phased Reopening Of Buildings And Services
Dr. Burton and the clergy/staff are working with church leaders to reopen the buildings and the services. Updates with the schedule will be posted as guidance and health information from our Governor and our denomination evolves. In the meantime, please refer to the guidelines issued for churches at TN.Gov and/or at Lifeway.com. These will help formulate our phased reopening schedule.
*** UPDATE (5/11/20) ***
Phased Reopening of Offices and Selected Classroom Buildings:
Monday, May 18, we are excited to reopen the offices to members. Door A will be open for that purpose. We will also be resuming our Food Pantry Ministry on Tuesdays and Thursday during posted hours.
Life Bible Study Classes and Committees and Prayer Groups will be able to reserve the Conference Room, Chapel, Sanctuary, or Fellowship Hall for Bible Studies or meetings. The rooms can be reserved Monday-Friday. These rooms allow groups to meet and still practice social distancing. By reserving, we can have the requested room set up, cleaned, and ready for you. There will be limited times as we will need to sanitize between groups. To reserve time and place: please call Judy Clark at 239-5123 (100). These are the only rooms we are reopening at this phase of reopening. Only Door A will be open for those meetings and access points will be the office hallway and elevator to the ground level. Reservations are on a first come/first served basis but we are happy to open rooms that can accommodate our classes and observe social distancing.
In June, we will resume accepting Benevolence Requests for bills and rent but the date is yet to be announced. We need to do so with health safeguard practices in place for our staff.
