FBC Opens its Doors

PRAISE GOD!!
ILLINOIS HAS ISSUED NEW GUIDELINES TO ALLOW CHURCHES IN THE STATE TO RE-OPEN.

HERE ARE THE GUIDELINES TO OUR FAMILY OF FAITH AND WORSHIPPERS:

When you arrive at church you are encouraged to park and practice “social distancing” from others who are not of your own “family group” as you make your way into the church. Please no greetings by way of handshakes, hugs, or touching of any kind.

Doors will open at 9:45 am. Both doors on the Logan street side of the church will be the entry points for worship. These doors will be manned by volunteers whose job it will be to open and close the doors for those who come.

There will be temperature checks and face coverings will be required upon entering the building.

We have partitioned the pews off to ensure the “six-foot” social distancing rule between people not of the same family group. (Note – “family groups” will be allowed to sit together.) We are unable to provide Nursery or children’s services at this time.

Please use hand sanitizer which will be available at the entrances to the church. The offering plates will not be passed. Offering plates will be placed near each entrance and manned by those standing at the doors.

When service the is over, we will dismiss in an orderly fashion to enable the safe exit of each worshipper keeping in mind the “social distancing” guideline.

When exiting, the doors will be manned (opened and closed) by the volunteers stationed there.

In the case of the auditorium being filled to the capacity, we will ensure the “social distancing” rules by use of our overflow areas for seating. (back parlor)

Please note that anyone over the age of 75 and those with compromised health conditions consider not attending but worship with us via our media outreach on Facebook at FBCMurphy

We are excited and praising God to be together again. It is a wonderful feel- ing to be able to focus on Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior together in our house of worship!
