Come & Worship!

Overview

Two Worship Services: Lansing Church is temporarily moving to two worship services.

The spacing for 6-foot social distancing between family units limits the number of people we accommodate in our sanctuary to approximately 150. Two services allow us to be able to worship on Sabbath morning, without having to turn anyone away. In light of the governor’s latest order, we are now requiring masks at both services.

Times of services (Face Masks required for those over 5 yrs old):

First Service: 8:30 AM

Sabbath School: 10:00 AM

Second Service: 11:15 AM

Registration is NO longer required.

Sabbath School: Is in person. See Sabbath School section below for information.

Fellowship Meals: No church fellowship meals at this time.

Prayer Meeting: This will continue via Zoom through the month of July.

Health Questions

 

Before coming to church, ask yourself if you have had any of the following symptoms in the past 7 days.

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

If your answer to any of the above is, “yes,” then for your safety and for the safety of your church family, stay home.

 

Attendance

In keeping with the CDC recommendation of 6′ spacing between households, we are limiting our sanctuary attendance to 125 people.

To accommodate everyone, there will be two services. As our numbers at each service have been under the 125 number, registration is no longer required.

This is a dynamic situation that is being closely watched by the Emergency Response Committee. 

What to bring:

Face maskRequired for both services.

Bible and a sheet of paper to take notes.

Hymnal: If you have a hymnal, bring it as there will be no hymnals in the pews.

Understanding for those who may not see the pandemic the same way you do.
