Regathering Plan
 
Dear Walnut Family,

Sundays at Walnut have looked very different as a result of COVID-19.  We are so grateful for your participation in our weekly online worship experiences, and for the ways you have connected with one another and our community.  We pray this continues as we seek to reach out and encourage one another with the love of Christ.
We are excited to inform you that our plans are to resume worship gatherings at the building on SUNDAY, June 14th.  We will resume in a worship service-only format – Sunday evening worship, Bible Classes, Discovery Hour, Wednesday evening classes, and Nursery will NOT be offered until late summer or until further notice.
We plan to offer TWO worship services in order to honor state and community guidelines regarding seating capacity and appropriate social distancing:
– 8:30 a.m. (age 65 and older, as well as those who are more at risk medically)
– 11:00 a.m. (rest of the congregation)
Just as these last three months have looked very different, our worship gatherings for the next several weeks will also look different.
Please note the following:
--If you are experiencing symptoms, or have been near someone who has been exposed, for the sake of others, please worship with us at home. (Temperature checks may be performed on entry.)
--Please use Main Foyer Doors as you enter and exit the facility.  All other doors will be locked.
– A Recorded Video of our service will be available and emailed out late Sunday afternoons.
– All attendees are highly encouraged to wear a face mask.  If you do not have one, we will provide one. (This is recommended for the sake of others.)
– You will be asked to register for the service you attend so we can have an approximate count.  A link to a simple survey will be available via email, Facebook, and our church website.  Please have one member  from your family complete this survey by Wednesday, June 10th. (Please make sure the survey is completed only once per family each week.)
 

– Seating arrangements will look different.  Social distancing is still in effect.
– For safety and sanitation purposes, the restrooms by the church office will be closed.  All other restrooms will be open. 
--Pre-packaged Communion supplies will be on tables as you enter the Worship center. Communion will be observed at the end of the service.  You may place your containers in the trash cans by the doors as you leave. 
--You will be dismissed one row/section at a time and are encouraged to not congregate in the foyer in order for cleaning to take place for the next service.
--Offering boxes will be on tables at the back of the worship center.  You can place your offerings there as you leave.  You can also continue to give online or mail offerings to the church office.
In accordance with the CDC and Guidance for Houses of Worship during COVID-19, the following will be done in our church facilities between morning services and during the week to prepare for each Sunday.
 
1. Regularly and frequently clean and disinfect any regularly touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, tables, chairs, and restrooms. 
2. Disinfect seats between services. 
3. Disinfect any items that come into contact with attendees. 
4. Make hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, soap and water, or similar disinfectant readily available.  Please consider bringing your own hand sanitizer as well.
 
While all of us look forward to being together again, we also recognize that there will be some who will choose not to attend for several weeks because of age, health concerns, etc.  Please know that we fully support those decisions.  We want to demonstrate our love for one another, and for some of us, the decision to not meet at the building for a few weeks will be the best decision.
Please be watching for additional information regarding specific details for  June 14th.  We continue to pray for you daily, and certainly appreciate your continued prayers for us.
 
With the love of Christ,
 Walnut Shepherds
