MAY 29, 2020
Dear Harvest Foursquare Family,
Beginning May 30, we will be entering Stage 3 of Governor Little’s four-stage plan, “Idaho Rebounds.” Among other things, this means that we will be able to gather in groups of 50 or less as long as we practice social distancing and other precautionary measures.
With that in mind, we will begin having Sunday morning services at our church building again starting June 7 at 10:30am. In addition to having services in person, we will be Live Streaming the sermon on Facebook, and we will upload the recording to our YouTube page within a day or two of the service. We also hope to continue to provide a worship experience by Alex Dimare from B4Church for those who choose not to attend, or are unable to.
In order to make sure that we are as safe as possible from COVID-19, the following measures will be taken for at least the month of June. We will re-evaluate as July approaches.
- Seats/pews will be marked off in order to insure social distancing. Please abide by those with your family.
- Kids’ Ministry and Nursery will not be provided.
- We will provide coffee, but we will not provide food.
- Extra cleaning precautions will be happening, especially in the bathrooms.
- While I will spend a few minutes talking about tithes and offerings, we will not pass the offering buckets, but instead, you may put your offering in the buckets as you come in or go out.
In addition, we would like to make the following recommendations and clarifications:
- Just because we are open does not mean you need to be here. If you are in the at-risk category of people, and/or you don’t feel comfortable attending church, please feel free to stay home and watch online.
- If you are sick at all, please STAY HOME! Even if it’s not COVID-19, we don’t want it.
- If you do come, please respect other people’s “bubbles.” Some are more comfortable getting close than others.
- Masks are becoming a real fashion statement these days, so please, if you want to wear one, by all means do so. The crazier or cooler the design the better. If all you can get is a store-bought one, that’s great, too.
- If you don’t want to wear a mask, you are still welcome to come.
- Most important: Whether you attend or not; whether you wear a mask or not, please respect the decisions of others as we all strive to do what we believe is right for our current situation.
Whether you come or stay home, we are still a church family. Let’s continue to reach out and care for one another. If you have a need, please don’t hesitate to contact Shari or me, and we’ll respond as quickly as possible. We look forward to being together again… in June, or beyond.
Trusting in Him With You,
