LATEST UPDATE FROM OUR LEADERSHIP
Towne South Reopening
Released May 27, 2020
We are excited to announce that Towne South will be reopening for in-person worship services on Sunday, June 7th. In order for it to be a safe and positive experience for as many people as possible, there will be some changes in how we conduct the worship services. We are asking you to observe the 6 foot social distancing guidelines at all times as directed by the CDC. We can safely have 130 people in our auditorium by following the social distancing guidelines. We will need to have a sign-up for each service.
Or call the church office at 252.338.2248.
Since there will be no Sunday School, Nursery, Children’s, or Youth classes, families will sit together for worship in the auditorium. For that reason, and so that we have time to clean in between each meeting, the worship time will be shortened to about 45 minutes. We will have three worship services. We want to encourage everyone to wear a mask and our first service will be designed as a “required mask” service. These are just a few of the changes. The specific changes are on the back of this letter.
What is most important about reopening is not the guidelines, but the attitude in which we approach them. The Bible says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 2:3-5)
If we will do that, this transition will go smoothly, God will be glorified, and his people will be edified. We can’t wait to see you on June 7th!
In His Service,
The Elders of Towne South
