March 14, 2020
After much discussion and consultation, the leadership team has decided to move forward with our regularly scheduled services at 9:30 and 11:15 AM this Sunday.
Our community is small enough and our building spacious enough to follow all the recommendations of health officials and the Governor.
In addition, the President has called a special National Day of Prayer this Sunday the 15th.   Meeting together will give us the opportunity to lift all those impacted by Covid-19 in prayer and to encourage one another.
When fear is high, we need things that ground us. But, no one should feel like they must come physically, as they can join us via a live stream that will be posted Sunday morning to our LifeWayCh.com site and hosted on our LifeWay Church Facebook page.
Here are the precautions and recommendations we are making:
•    We have ramped up our cleaning and disinfecting routines throughout the building, before after and in-between services.
•    We are recommending all to follow the CDC guidelines including:
      -Frequently washing hands with soap and water for at      least 20 seconds and or using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol (we will be providing hand sanitizer throughout the building).
      -Avoiding touching your face.
      -Avoiding physical contact like hugging, kissing, and shaking hands.
We are also asking ALL PEOPLE who are sick (with cold or flu-like symptoms) or those who have a compromised immune system to enjoy our livestream from home.  A link will be posted Sunday morning to our LifeWayCh.com site and hosted on our LifeWay Church Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/lifewaych/
For the One,
The LifeWay Leadership Team.
