From the Elders:
Most of you have probably already been made aware of the declaration that was issued by Johnson County and
went into effect Friday 06/27/20 at 6 p.m. If you have not it states that “Face masks are required in areas open
to the public where social distancing is not feasible and 100 or more people are present”. The county is also
urging everyone 10 years old and up to wear face masks covering their nose and mouth when in areas open to
the public where it is difficult to maintain six feet of social distance from other individuals. That being said we
are recommending that everyone over the age of 10 wear a mask when entering and exiting the building and
while moving through the foyer or making your way to your seat. Once you are seated and at a safe distance
from others you may remove your mask. The Shepherds feel that these safety guidelines and protocols are best
for your safety and the well being of others.
We also ask that you continue to follow all other guidelines that were previously put in place.
- No handshakes
- No hugging
- Please keep safe distances between yourself and others (respect their space).
- If you are over the age of 10 wear a mask when entering and exiting the building and while moving through the foyer or making your way to your seat. Once you are seated and at a safe distance from others you may remove your mask.
- DO NOT COME IF YOU HAVE A FEVER OR ANY CORONA VIRUS SYMPTOMS.
- Do not come if you feel you are in a higher risk category, or you feel it is too soon to return to worship for your own personal safety. Please continue to use the web site for viewing.
Entrance doors will be propped open before and after services.
Communion kits are to be picked up as you enter the auditorium.
Communion will be near the end of the worship service. (Allows for easier clean-up.)
Trash containers will be at the back of the auditorium for communion kit disposal after services are over.
The Nursery will be open, but no staff or supervision will be available.
There will be no Bible classes.
Please keep 6 feet between your family and others when selecting seating.
Children are asked to stay with their parents.
There will be no children's church.
Prayer request cards need to be given to an elder before the service begins.
No attendance cards will be taken.
No microphones will be used in the audience.
No coffee will be provided.
Doors will continue to be locked at 10:15 and monitored for entry on Sunday mornings.
Contributions may be placed in one of the collection plates as you leave the building (Someone will be there to
monitor the collection plates for security reasons).
No Sunday evening services; small groups can meet at their discretion.
The FLC will not be used on Sundays or Wednesdays, either for classes or small groups, as well as during the
week for activities (This reduces the level of clean-up required for maintaining a safe environment).
Wednesday evening services have begun. They consist of singing, praying, and a devotional message in the
auditorium only. No classes of any age will meet. All previously mentioned guidelines will be followed during
Wednesday evening services. Thank you for your continued prayer and support during these tough times.
