Stanley Baptist Church Reopening

 In accordance with the “Phase One” reopening plan we are going to offer in-person worship next Sunday (May 24) at 11:00 AM in addition to our on-line option.  During Phase One the following rules are in effect:

 No one should come to the in-person service if they:

  • Have a fever

  • Have Covid-19 Symptoms

  • Are otherwise ill
  • Know that they have been exposed to Covid-19 in the past 14 days
  • Are a “high-risk” individual

 People in any of these categories are encouraged to participate via the on-line sermon (both audio/video and audio only versions will be available).

We will be practicing “social distancing.”  That means:

  • Stay at least six feet apart

  • Wear a mask

  • Avoid touching your face
  • Disinfect and/or wash hands frequently
  • Avoid coughing or sneezing on people

 The six-foot rule does not apply among family members who live together.  Usable seating areas are marked off (as required by the Phase One rules) with blue tape.  The side areas of the sanctuary are open and available for individual seating.

 We will do what we can given the need to practice social distancing.  This means that the service will be modified and abbreviated.  

 Copies of the Bulletin will not be printed; the Bulletin will be projected on the front screen.  There will be a praise song, an opening hymn and a closing hymn, with the words projected so that hymnals do not need to be handled.  The offering plates will not be passed; we ask that tithes and offerings be dropped into the offering plates at the front of the Church before or after the service.  There will be no choral anthem.

 Children are always welcome at Stanley Baptist, however, during this period of time we are suspending nursery services and ask that all children sit with their parents. In addition to this, we will not have children’s church for the unforeseen future and ask that you help your children in practicing social distancing during our reopening phases. 

 At this time we are not offering Sunday School.  It will be offered as soon as we are able to do so.
