Church Family,

We want to continue to update you on our plans to work through COVID-19 in an effort to continue our mission to Live, Love, and Reach. This week’s update is simple: MASKS, ONLINE, and SCHEDULE.

MASKS
In accordance with good health standards and the executive order from Mayor Scott of Little Rock, we are asking all Indoor Service participants to wear a mask from your vehicle to your seat and, at dismissal, from your seat back to your vehicle. Once seated, since we can properly practice social distancing, masks do not have to be worn. Health officials are saying that face masks are the most effective way to prevent transmission, and it is important that we care for our neighbors and follow local leaders to do all we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, if wearing a mask is too much for you or a family member, we encourage you to attend our Outdoor Service at Raymar Fields or join us for our Online Service, both at 9:30am. 

ONLINE
Many of our Online Service participants have asked why we are not showing the Indoor Service in the Worship Center for our Online Service. For the last couple of weeks, we have had to pre-record our Online Service due to required maintenance and update of our Media Control Room. The Media Control Room is the epicenter of our online and in-house video operations. Although we will still be able to offer Online Services, we will not be able to broadcast from the Worship Center until mid-August.

SCHEDULE
Thank you for your flexibility as we have been settling into a new schedule and already preparing for a schedule change. We know it is not easy keeping up with what times our services begin and having to register to attend a service. These changes account for a variety of underlying issues that force us to have to modify how we manage our schedule: the increasing summer heat, maintaining social distancing, and our desire to offer excellence in worship.
