Kingwood Church of Christ Assembly Proposal

 

The leaders of the KWCOC are excited to announce a return to Sunday services at the building beginning Sunday June 7, 2020.  Services will begin at 10:15 am and end at 11:15 am.  We ask that you be in prayer for this blessed event. 

 

What You Need to Know

 

Your health and the health of others is the primary concern of the church’s leadership.  Every step to ensure compliance with CDC and state guidelines for meeting in public places has been taken.  Specifically, we are taking the following steps to accomplish this goal:

 

  • The church building will be professionally sanitized before each service.
  • Every other row will be marked to aid in social distancing.
  • Only the auditorium, foyers, and south hall bathrooms will be open for use.
  • Only three doors will be used for entering and exiting the building: main entrance (west side) and two secondary entrances (north side)
  • All items that can be handled by hands (song books, Bibles, pew pads, kid’s packets, and bulletins) have been removed.
  • Church volunteers (greeters, foyer assistants, etc.) will be wearing masks.
  • Compliance with state and CDC regulations regarding maximum occupancy for reopened services will be accomplished. Upon reaching maximum occupancy, steps are in place to ensure social distancing guidelines.
  • We will continue to offer services online at kwcoc.org and our YouTube channel for those who choose to worship remotely at this time.

 

What You Need You to Do

 

In order for the KWCOC to accomplish its goals for health and safety, we ask that you read the following carefully.

 

The CDC website states, “COVID-19 is a new disease and there is limited information regarding risk factors for severe disease. Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.” According to the CDC guidelines, those at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19 are:

  • People 65 years and older
  • People who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility
  • People of all ages with underlying medical conditions (cdc.gov)

 

Based on the above guidelines, it is recommended that those who are at high risk for severe illness from COVID 19 worship remotely.  For those who wish to worship at the building, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines. 

 

  • Sit in groups according to social distancing guidelines. We ask families to sit together.
  • Wear a mask to and during services.
  • All members are encouraged to use the hand sanitizers upon entering the building.
  • In order to minimize bathroom usage at the building, we ask that you use your home bathrooms before coming to worship. When using church bathrooms, only one person should be in the bathroom at any time.
  • Do not mingle in foyer before, during, or after services. Please enter and exit quickly. 
  • Pick up your communion packet in foyer before entering auditorium and leave your contributions in the trays provided.
  • Be as patient and encouraging as you possibly can. If you have suggestions or questions, please contact the church office.
