The Regathering

We are excited to announce that we will have church services in our sanctuary. Pray for our church as we regather and reconnect. After much prayer, consideration, and evaluation of our congregation’s needs for the safest, healthiest regathering procedures for our church the following guidelines will be used as we begin to regather and phase in ministry.

Procedures for Regathering:

  • We will temporarily offer one service at 10am.
  • The church will be sanitized (door handles, hard surfaces, bathrooms, etc.) before Sunday services.
  • Doors may be propped open to reduce the handling and touching of surfaces.
  • In order to minimize contact, printed bulletins will not be available.
  • We ask that family units sit together.
  • When entering and exiting the building, please follow CDC guidelines for social distancing.
  • We will not have nursery, children’s church, Sunday school, or Youth Group available at this time. Families are encouraged to sit together for a family worship experience. Other ministries will be phased in when the situation allows.
  • No offering plates will be passed. You can drop your tithes & offerings in the offering plates as you leave the building. You are also encouraged to give online at www.pearcechapel.com.
  • There are hand sanitizer dispensers located in the foyer bathrooms and at the entrances.
  • We ask that only one person use the restroom at a time to minimize contact in the doorways and sink areas.
  • We ask members to refrain from shaking hands and hugging. While many of us miss the embrace of dear friends and family, it is important to limit contact at this time.
  • We are asking that you wear a mask. We will have some masks available at the door, but please bring your own, if possible.
  • Please cover your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or a tissue.
  • If you have symptoms of sickness, fever, sinus cold, etc., please stay home!

 

You can always stream our services online on our FB page if you are unable to attend in person. Please keep in mind that our church never “closed,” as we have continued our ministry in a different capacity. We are doing our very best to ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone. I know there may be different attitudes and opinions about the current crisis and how to proceed. We ask that you respect the needs of others and help us by following these guidelines.  If you are comfortable coming back to church, please do so. Online services cannot replace the joy and encouragement of meeting together in person. If you are uncomfortable attending our in person services please join us online.

Please understand that the COVID-19 pandemic is a fluid situation. Any of these

guidelines are subject to change.
