Good Afternoon Lighthouse Family!
Psalm 122:1 says “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” We are so glad to be able to say that today, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” Last week Gov. Murphy increased the number for indoor gatherings from 50 to 100, effective immediately! Because of this, we will be having worship service on Sundays at 10:00AM.
Although we are starting back up, things will look very different than what we are accustomed to on Sunday’s. Please read carefully the following bullet points regarding our new, temporary normal.
*Based on the surveys we sent out and the responses to the cell groups, we will be having one service from 10:00am-11:00am. Please do not arrive before 9:45 unless you are serving.
*You must go on to the church website and sign up each member of your family attending, including children, using the sign-up genius program available on the front page of the church web site, www.lighthousealliance.net. This is how we will manage the count of people coming in so please do not just show up on Sunday and expect to just walk in.
*At this time, no nursery/children’s ministries will be available. Sandi Hartman will be putting together busy bags for those children grades pre-k-4th. These bags will be available on Sunday when your child arrives and returned at the end of each service. Pastor Steve is aware that children sometimes make noise and has assured me that he is ok with it!
*We will have groups of chairs spread throughout the sanctuary so that families can sit together while remaining socially distanced from others.
*Masks are required. Those who are medically unable to wear a mask and young children are exempt.
*Hand sanitizing stations will be available & the church will be completely disinfected before you arrive and again after you leave.
*There will be NO greeting time. Please refrain from hugging/handshaking even if you think/know the person is ok with it, anywhere inside the church building.
*Everyone will need to have exited the building 15 minutes after service has ended. If you are comfortable visiting for longer, you are encouraged to visit outside of the building.
WE ARE ASKING PEOPLE WHO ARE PLANNING TO COME ON SUNDAY TO SIGN UP ASAP. WE WOULD LIKE TO GET A FEEL FOR HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE AT SUNDAY SERVICE WAY AHEAD OF TIME TO SEE WHAT ADJUSTMENTS NEED TO BE MADE.
ALSO, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THINGS ARE VERY FLUID AT THIS PONT. WE WILL SEE HOW THINGS WORK OUT THIS SUNDAY AND MAKE ANY CHANGES NECESSARY, AS WELL AS WATCH FOR ANY CHANGES IN GOV. MURPHY’S NUMBERS.
Please feel free to call the office at (609)296-9673 or a staff member, with any questions or concerns.
