Restoring Parish Life – The following was sent out via email on Monday, June 27th
“Rejoice in the Lord!”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As we approach our third Sunday of “re-opening” I want to express what an incredible joy it is to see
you in church again! Although our attendance is still limited, how beautiful it is to see you present in
church offering your prayers and worship. I thank God always for your faith and love for Christ!
My hope, of course, is that our full parish life will be restored quickly, however we must continue to be
patient. I’m grateful for your understanding and cooperation with our parish readiness team and the
procedures they have implemented.
As we look forward, let us all continue to be steadfast in faith, hope and love, trusting the Lord and
being grateful for everything, both the good we experience as well as the challenges we face.
May God keep you all safe and healthy!
Reminders & Guideline Adjustments
A reservation is required for Sunday Services Click Here for Sign Up Procedures
You do not need to sign up for services held Monday-Saturday. These are open on a first-come firstseated basis until capacity is reached.
Please do not congregate in the Narthex or Small Hall after church
We all miss seeing each other and it is natural to want to visit, but for the health and safety of all it is
important that we continue to move outside after services and maintain social distancing standards.
In accordance with the Governor’s recent new directive on face coverings we have slightly altered
our mask policy as follows:
o Face masks/coverings are required for everyone 10 years of age and older.
o Children ages 2-9 are strongly encouraged to wear a mask/covering.
o Masks/coverings are prohibited for children under age 2.
o Any exceptions will be in accordance with the guidelines of the state directive. More information
can be found on the Nevada Health Response Website
Don’t Forget – all scheduled services are available for live viewing on our Facebook page.
We have seen great improvement with the quality of our streaming, but it is still a work in progress. We
are looking into ways to increase our upload speed to minimize freezing and dropping. Additionally, we
have someone at church during each service to monitor the live-stream and correct issues as they arise.
If you experience a hiccup while viewing services, please refresh your page. Know that it can sometimes
take a few minutes to restart and you may need to look for a new post to pick up on services that cut out.
Thank you for your continued patience and support as we learn and grow with this new capability. It is a
wonderful blessing to be able to extend our worship into our homes in this way.
