What's Up @GLCC


IN-PERSON WORSHIP PROTOCOLS

Dear Gun Lake Family,

We celebrate that Covid-19 cases in both Allegan and Barry Counties are significantly reduced and therefore are looking to open up our protocols a little bit more on Sunday mornings. The Elders with Consistory continue to monitor what is happening in our region. We encourage people to make the right choice for themselves and their families and want you to know that we love you whether at home or in person. We look forward to when we will all be back together! The primary change we will be making is opening up all rows of seating in the worship center. We continue to encourage everyone to spread out but are happy to be able to open up more seating. Masks continue to be by choice. God bless you! Together, may we continue to bring hope to our region through Christ’s love.

In-person protocols:

  • If you have been exposed, are sick, or have any respiratory symptoms, please stay home.
  • We will be using the main front entrance and ask you to enter through the middle set of double doors.
  • Wearing masks continues to be optional. It will be an individual’s personal preference whether or not to wear a mask.
  • Children’s ministry will continue during our 10:30 a.m. worship service. Their protocols remain the same.
  • Spreading out is still a good idea, but all rows are now open for seating.
  • Two baskets are available in the gathering area for offerings.
  • Weekly bulletins will now be available.
  • The Gathering Area will still be available for extra seating.
  • Both Men’s and Women’s restrooms will be available and cleaned in between services. The Mission Café and Media Center will continue to be closed for now.
  • Please be aware that not everyone present will have the same comfort level with personal contact. We ask you to assess each circumstance and act in the most loving way possible.

We are in this together. God bless you and we look forward to worshipping with you online or in person again this Sunday!
