Church Re-Opening Update #14 教會更新

The next milestone concerns the worship service plan. The church is responsible to define, prepare, and communicate the changes to worship service in order to ready members to return.

What is our objective with this milestone?

Our objective with this milestone is to have a safe, meaningful, and God-honoring in-person worship service. The service will comply with county guidelines and we plan for it to remain accessible online through live-stream.

We must also effectively inform the congregation of changes to the worship format in advance. This will contribute to awareness and observance for those who return.

What has the church done or planned in order to meet this milestone?

Planning toward this milestone has focused on two areas: liturgy and logistics.

Liturgy – The church has identified changes to the order of service to promote safety while worshiping. Baptism will be pre-recorded off-site and shared and celebrated in service. Singing will also be pre-recorded, in compliance with state guidance for places of worship to “discontinue indoor singing and chanting activities.”

Logistics – The in-person worship service is being engineered for minimal contact. There will be changes to bulletin distribution, offering collection, and communion sharing to minimize touching common surfaces and objects. We will also maintain physical distancing of 6 feet for seating in the service. Related to logistics, the church has purchased live-stream equipment in in order to improve the quality of online viewing.

What else should members know about this effort?

We seek to comply with present state and local guidelines. If and when these guidelines change, we will adapt to meet them. As a result, the items above may be amended in the future.

各位親愛的弟兄姊妹們,教會重啟另一關鍵程序有關於崇拜方式。在會友們重返教會參與實體敬拜之前,教會將負責策定,籌劃並將任何崇拜方式的改變事先通知會友們。

崇拜方式此關鍵程序的目標為何?
此關鍵程序的目標旨在確保重啟後的實體敬拜必須是安全,有意義並榮耀神的崇拜。崇拜方式必須合乎洛杉磯郡的指令。在重新舉行實體敬拜的同時,我們也將繼續以現場直播方式提供不能親身蒞臨的會友在線上參與崇拜的機會。

我們也必須在再度舉行實體崇拜之前,清楚地向會友們說明崇拜的方式,如此,參與的會友能在事前就已有心理準備,當重返教會時能恪守所有新的保健規則。

教會到目前為止為達到此關鍵程序的目標已完成的策定或籌劃為何?
為達到此目標,教會主要注意下列兩方面:禮儀和流程。

禮儀:為了確保會眾平安,教會已更改修正某些崇拜程序。在可見的將來,浸禮將不在教會舉行,全程錄影,在崇拜中與會友一同分享,一同獻上讚美。為了謹守加州政府指令,即所有崇拜場所“停止所有在會堂裏唱詩和唸經的活動”,詩班獻詩也將事先錄製。

流程:實體崇拜的流程旨在維持與人保持最低接觸狀態。為了減少會友碰觸公共設施表面及物品到最低點,崇拜程序單的發放,奉獻的收取,聖餐的分派方式都將有所更改。崇拜時的座位也將維持六呎社交距離。為了改善崇拜直播的品質,教會也已更新購買了現場直播的器材。

除此之外,會友們對這項關鍵程序還需要知道一些什麼?
教會力求完全遵守加州及洛杉磯郡的所有相關指令。當這些現有指令有所變更時,教會既有的策劃也會作相關的調整。因此,我們有可能更改上述所提事項。

COVID-19 Update

Public health officials have advised large gatherings to be limited at this time. In compliance, the pastoral staff has prayerfully decided to transition all worship services online and suspend other church activities until March 31, 2020. We will monitor the situation and extend the date as needed. Please refer to this letter from Pastor Alan Chan for more information.

由於政府衛生機構已勸導任何大型聚會停止聚集,教牧同工遵循此指示決定自即日起至3月31日,將所有崇拜聚會移至線上直播或上傳影片,同時也暫停在教會的聚集和活動。我們會密切關注疫情發展後視情況需要再延長,詳情請參閱陳寶聲牧師的公開信
