Update from Pastor Patrick
(Tabernacle Baptist Church, May 15, 2020)
Dear Tabernacle Family,
I am so excited about the opportunity of worshipping together soon!
As you may know by now, we have been planning to resume in-person worship on Sunday, May 31. Our plan is to have three worship opportunities on that date at 8:30 am, 11:00 am, and 4:30 pm. We believe the extra worship service is necessary in order to provide more space for social distancing. It is our desire to abide by CDC protocol for the safety and well-being of our people. Please choose one of the three worship times that best suits your schedule and life situation.
Doors will open for worship 30 minutes prior to our stated worship times. This will allow time for our team to sanitize our facilities and keep them safe for you.
Be aware that there will be no on-campus LifeGroups during the summer months of worship, nor will there be any childcare provided. Since there will be no gatherings for pre-school, children, or students on
Sunday mornings in the summer, we are planning to have a family-centered worship during the 4:30 pm gathering. Our worship during this time will be more tailored to families with children.
Per CDC guidelines, please do not come to our in-person worship services if you are sick, or if you have any symptoms of sickness. Also, please be considerate of Governor Kemp’s recommendations for at risk and vulnerable people.
Though all may not be able to attend in-person worship on May 31, online and television worship will still be available.
We look forward to the day in which we can return full-throttle to our regularly scheduled activities. Lord willing, we plan to do this on August 9. Until then, we will be vigilant, watchful, and flexible. This is our plan for now, but who knows? Things may change. I promise that we will be as prayerful and diligent as we can to provide safe, yet Christ-exalting, opportunities for worship. I hope to see you in worship soon!
