Worshiping God and sharing the love of Christ at the corner of Maney and East Main!
WELCOMING YOU HOME
Some of you have told us recently you're ready to come back to worship together in the sanctuary. Others of you have indicated it's not time for you, and you're not ready.
In our planning for the re-opening of worship on May 31, we’re taking a number of steps to be prudent as our state and county recover from the Covid-19 virus. Guided by the figures we see on STATNEWS.com COVID19 Tracker, the negative test rate seems to be soaring since the state began testing March 11, while the number of positive results peaked on May 1 and have been gradually dropping since then.
The unique nature of our worship service includes weekly communion and the taking of an offering. This means we have to take some steps to be careful with the items involved. The Elders will still pray at the Table, but the trays will be on a smaller table at the front of the sanctuary. Individuals may come forward to take a wafer from a plastic cup in one tray, and a cup of juice from another tray, dropping both empty cups in a receptacle by the table before returning to their seats. Worshipers may line up to receive communion, but will be encouraged to stay distanced from one another while in line.
Seating is plentiful and you may of course sit with family members, but you’re encouraged to space out into empty pews as much as possible.
The deacons will go around with offering plate, but you need not touch the plate, as they will hold on to the plate while donors place gifts. There will also be a plate on a stand in the aisle for you to use if you prefer that method.
There will be hand sanitizer in the room for you to use on arrival and departure at your discretion, and the elevator will be operating, though we’ll encourage you to ride only with family members in the elevator.
Pastor Odom's classes, Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Monday evening, will move over to the basement for the time being to have a little more room to spread out. The elevator will be open for each class. The Sunday evening class at 5:30 will begin May 24 and the Hebrews Bible Study will begin Monday, May 25 at 6:30 PM. The Sunday morning class at 9:30, will resume on May 31, the same day as worship.
Our custodian, Roger Osborne, will keep all handles and buttons clean from week to week, and all who wish to wear gloves and/or masks are invited to do so.
For those not yet ready to return, the church now has a YouTube account, Central Christian Church DOC Murfreesboro, and clicking this link, Central Christian Church DOC Murfreesboro will take you there. Each service will be streamed and recorded, as well as classes, for those unable to attend.
