Church ReOpening Statement

Posted on: May 21, 2020

LCC Family,

As we have continued to monitor the happenings with the COVID-19 virus, the Eldership of LCC have decided to restart in-person worship services beginning Sunday, May 31st.   The health and welfare of our church family remains our priority.  With that focus, and in keeping the State of Ohio recommendations in mind, here is some important information for us all moving forward:

*Services will meet at 9:30am and 11:00am.  We will limit attendance at each service to less than 100 people per service.  This is well below 50% of our current occupancy level.  While we do not foresee this to be a problem, please know that we will limit attendance to the 100 person maximum.  We are asking for everyone to show some grace if service is at capacity.

*There will be no Sunday school, children’s, student, or nursery programming at this time.

*Currently, entry to the building can only be made through the back doors or through the side door.

*We are asking you that you do not enter the building any earlier than 15 minutes before service and go directly to your seat.  Foyer and aisles must be kept clear.  After service has concluded, we ask that you exit directly to parking lot and not linger in worship center or foyer.  We will release by rows.  This is for everyone’s safety.

*Please adhere strictly to at least 6’ social distancing in all areas of building except for family groups that arrive/attend together.  This is of particular importance when seated. If asked to spread out, please do so. 

*Because of bathroom renovation in progress, the only restrooms that are available are in the children’s ministry wing hall and the handicapped restroom just outside of foyer.  Please use only in emergencies.

*Building worship center, restrooms, and other high touch areas will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each service.

*Several hand sanitizing stations will be available.  Please use upon entry and again before exiting. 

*Individual communion elements will be available.  Offering can be placed in the box on entry.

*If you would like to wear a face mask, please do.

*If you are feeling unwell or are in a high risk group, please reframe from attending in person services.  Safety first.

*We realize that not everyone is comfortable with attending an “in person” service and that is totally fine, please continue to worship with us online.

*We will continue to live stream a worship service on Facebook at 11:00am on Sunday.

Excited to be reunited with you,

The Eldership of LCC
