Dear Brook Family,
We care for each one of you in all respects, including the physical well-being of our community. To that end, The Brook is taking the following extra measures to keep our campus clean and healthy in light of recent developments with the coronavirus (COVID-19):
- We will have three services this Sunday, March 15, at 7:45, 9:30 and 11:15am. There will be no Pebbles or Sprouts. The 1:00pm service will be suspended this Sunday.
- Our First Touch greeters and ushers will hold doors open and forgo shaking hands or hugging at church for a wave or a friendly smile.
- We will sanitize highly touched surfaces (such as doors, handles, tables, water fountains, check-in stations, youth areas and sinks) before and after every service.
- Our staff and volunteer teams will wash their hands frequently and stay home if they are sick.
We are also asking you, our members, to take precautions to keep yourself and others safe. Please be mindful of the guidance below:
- Stay home when you OR a family member is sick. While you’re recovering, we invite you to join us for services online through The Brook App, Facebook or YouTube.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue or your arm. Get in the habit of NOT touching your face so often.
- Limit shaking hands or hugging at church for a wave or a friendly smile.
- Use Text to Give (text TheBrook to 73256) or online giving options to limit handling envelopes, checks and currency.
- If you have recently traveled abroad, follow the directives given to you by local, state or federal officials.
We will continue to monitor the situation for updates and will respond accordingly. Even as our world is constantly changing, the power of God and the truth of His Word has not changed. Our mission as a church has not changed.We remain steadfast in the certainty of God’s presence and His promises. Please join us in praying for those who are affected by this illness, their caregivers and those who are working around the clock to minimize the impact of this virus.
