We pray we find each of you abiding in Christ and Christ abiding in you. This past Sunday, the Church Leadership Ministry Team (CLMT) continued our conversation in regards to what our next steps will be as we seek to return to gathering as a faith family on Sunday mornings. A motion was passed in a 5-1 vote that will provide our next step in gathering once again.
We are moving our Gatherings to 10:30am. We will allow all of you who desire to join us live at 10:30am to join us. We are working with our worship team to see if we will be able to sing joyfully together. Our continued recommendations is that those who are the most vulnerable would use wisdom and discretion in your return to physically gathering. If you decide to remain home, we will be live streaming Sunday at 10:30am on Facebook and www.pinesummitbaptist.org.
For all of you who will return to gather with us, we will continue to implement certain protocols for the next couple weeks. Due to these protocols, we recommend for you to come earlier than normal so that we can get everyone processed without delaying the service. However, you can help with self-evaluations prior to coming as you help us love one another to the very best of our ability. Everyone will be prescreened for temperature and for any symptoms or situations that may help limit exposure. As expected, if you have experienced any symptoms or been around any one who has experienced symptoms, we ask that you please remain home and join us online. We will continue to maintain 6 ft social distancing between families. We will continue to keep contact to surfaces to an absolute minimum so all necessary doors will remain open or be opened for you. Only the sanctuary will be open and only the restrooms in the sanctuary will be made available. Therefore, there will be no bible studies, student activities, nor children activities for the next couple of weeks. Only 10:30am worship gathering in the sanctuary. We will not be able to provide masks but recommend you to wear masks if you desire and have them available.
We love you and are looking forward to gathering once again to share in worshiping our Lord and Savior together. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
In Christ Alone!
