Much of our focus with regard to re-opening has been on the Sunday worship service. However, there are additional elements to consider. Re-opening also includes the church office, weekday programs, and other ministries. As a church we are progressing in those areas as well. For example, the church office has been open on a limited basis since Monday, June 8th and we would like to describe our present arrangement.
Question: What is the present arrangement for the church office and what can I expect if I visit?
The office is open Monday to Saturday from 9:00am to Noon. A secretary and two staff members are on site to answer phones or help with specific needs. The most common reasons that members presently visit the church is to pick up a devotional or drop-off offering. On some occasions, members may make an appointment to meet with a pastor on site.
Here is what you might expect:
- Please use the Woodward Ave. entrance. The buzzer will indicate to the office that you have arrived.
- Come prepared with a facial covering and observe physical distancing.
- Most interaction will take place in the Woodward lobby; access to the rest of the building is limited.
Staff members are required to follow office procedures. This includes taking a temperature before entering the building. Some volunteers may begin to return by arrangement for tasks that can only be completed at the church. In such cases, volunteers are required to comply with employee procedures as well. We hope that these measures will promote health and mitigate the risk of infection.
These are our temporary arrangements. We miss our vibrant, personal interactions and the sounds of activity throughout the building. Please join us in praying for the health of our surrounding community and the future time when we can fully return to the building and interact with one another.
