We miss you and know that many of you are eager to gather for worship together. As a consistory
and staff, we have begun the process of thinking through what coming together looks like and ask
for your continued prayers as we work through the details. Here are a couple things that are
important for you to know:
First, we are looking to open our campus for worship on Sunday June 7. Our main service will
continue to be online but worshippers will be allowed to re-enter the building with social
distancing procedures in place. We are reviewing best practices to make it as contactless an
experience as possible and will put out the guidelines for coming together as we draw closer to
that date. Please realize that not everyone may be able to be in the worship center.
Second, our ability to bring people into the building is contingent on us all working together and
being responsible to the guidelines that are set. Different people are having different experiences
and we need to embrace this reality. We will do our best to set informed guidelines but then ask
you to lovingly stay within them. By doing this, we honor one another and create a consistent
environment for all who come. If you think that you will be unable or unwilling to stay within
those guidelines please continue to watch our services online.
Third, opening campus means extra work during this extraordinary time. Services will be on a
stricter schedule so that the proper cleaning can take place for the next group to come in.
Therefore, social interactions might be encouraged out into the parking lot simply so that we can
focus on welcoming the next group. Opportunities to serve will be identified and shared in the
next couple weeks.
Finally, there will be friendly monitoring happening through loving leaders that will help everyone
have a great experience! Thank you for being respectful of those leaders so that coming together
is the beautiful celebration that we all anticipate.
Again, more information will be coming as we draw closer to the day. Please understand that
nothing can be absolutely definite. We are walking through a pandemic and things change weekly.
But this is our present desire and we are working towards it becoming reality. In the meantime, let’s
continue to be expressions of life and hope to those around us.Journeying with you,
The GLCC Consistory
