          It's finally time to "Welcome You Home!"
         

“Welcome Home!”  That’s a phrase that never gets old.  It fills the heart with love, warmth, and connection that is rooted in security, vulnerability, and genuine hospitality.  It is a phrase my mother used to say to me whenever I walked in the door each day after school.  When I married and visited my parents, I can recall her saying, “Welcome Home!”  I realize the message behind her words, now that I am older: I had a home with my folks no matter where I had wandered or wherever they may move.

We are prepared to welcome you home.  Our staff, IC Team, and greeters are willingly offering themselves to welcome you home to our church building, so that we can begin again to be the body of Christ in one place.  We are trained to welcome, equip, and guide you as you arrive and navigate in our beautiful facility.  Everything is as clean and shiny and safe as we can possibly make it.  We hope you feel safe in returning to in-person worship.

On Sunday, there are a few simple things we need you to do for us as we welcome each other home:
  • Be well (no recent contact with infected persons, not exhibiting flu-like symptoms, no fever);
  • Stay with your family and maintain 6 foot “physical” distancing;
  • Wear a mask to protect others
Our church will provide masks, hand sanitizer at each entry point and in each restroom.  We will help you find a seat with physical distancing in mind.
 

We will offer each of our regular worship services at their regular times.  Contemporary Worship at 8:30am and Traditional Worship at 11:00am.  No Sunday School for now.  Also, we will continue to offer access to an on-line worship for immunosuppressed persons and families that elect not to return just yet.

Children are welcomed to return, but no nursery will be provided (at least for a few Sundays).  Bring a blanket for your small children to play on and be closer to you during worship.  We will provide a care package with coloring sheets, crayons, a pre-packaged snack, and a drink.

Speaking of drinks, we will have our coffee station, water fountains, and breakfast service closed for a time.  The guidelines we have been given and best practices of our sister churches warrant us to be cautious.  If you love coffee like I do, be like me and bring your own or drink at home.

I hope I can be the first to say to you, “Welcome Home!”  If I am the second or the last to say that to you, I hope you know you are welcomed here, you have a home here, and that love is the language spoken here, even if we must practice for a time at a distance.

Welcome Home!

Grace and peace,
 Tommy
