Welcome to

"Where Jesus Christ is Lord"


May 29, 2020

We are very excited to open our doors for the first time in many weeks. In order to be responsible and make everyone feel as safe as possible we are asking for the following guidelines to be respected.

Gentle Reminders for Keeping Everyone Healthy


  • Temperature > or = to 100.4 degrees: Stay home until his or her fever has been gone more than 24 hours without Fever reducing medication.

  • Active vomiting: Stay home until 24 hours after symptoms resolve

  • Recurring diarrhea:  Stay home until 24 hours after symptoms resolve

  • Severe earaches (pain), runny eyes with discharge, or chronic undiagnosed cough

  • Suspected or diagnosed contagious disease

  • Chicken pox - return 5-7 days after first eruption.

  • Conjunctivitis - associated with itchiness or purulent drainage.  Return after 24 hours of treatment or when purulent drainage stops.

  • Flu or viral symptoms (fever, sore throat, runny nose, cough, body aches, rash)

  • Any illness requiring antibiotic treatment and less than 24 hours treatment received


Specific to the Covid-19 Virus: these behaviors are hard but so protective for now:

  • Masks at worship are highly recommended, remember that you should not be touching your face/mask and your mask protects others as theirs protects you. If you don’t have access to a mask and would like to have one, we will have some available.

  • Please refrain from hugging or handshaking

  • Please refrain from socializing in groups inside or outside the sanctuary/building.  Please follow the usher to your seat and then go straight to your car when your rows are released

  • Restrooms in the foyer will be available.  We will not be traveling anywhere in the building except foyer, bathrooms in foyer, and Sanctuary.

  • If anyone in your home or close circle becomes ill with covid-19 symptoms, please quarantine from church for 14 days from exposure.

  • Should you become ill with the virus, it is recommended that you stay home for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms as long as symptoms have reduced and there has been no fever for 72 hours. (CDC and Va. Department of Health)

  • There will be no children’s church or childcare.

  • Altar call will be done from the pews.

  • If anyone desires anointing please call Pastor Rick to set up a time to meet.

  • All printed materials have been removed from the pews and the pews have been wiped down with disinfectant. 

  • The announcements and bulletins will be on the power point, website and the prayer chain.

  • Offering baskets have been placed in the foyer to drop in your tithes as you leave the sanctuary.

  • Markings will be placed on the sidewalk of the church in order to social distance while waiting to be seated.

  • The sanctuary doors will remain open during the service and the entrance door to the church will be opened by the ushers.

  Please be in prayer for our service on Sunday whether you are planning to attend in person or online.
