Worship Pastor Survey

The Worship Pastor Search Team would like to survey the congregation and Waller community about our worship ministry moving forward. We are not seeking commentary or criticism on current or past worship experiences. Please answer honestly about what you believe will best serve the church and community as we move into a new era. You may remain anonymous, but if you share your name, your responses will remain confidential among only the serving committee members.

Thank you!

On Site Services Resume May 10

We are excited to have the opportunity to worship in person with you again, we also want to be mindful of our current circumstances and follow state guidelines aimed at minimizing the risk of contagion. With that in mind, here’s what you need to know before attending this Sunday.

_____________________

We will have two services, at 8:30AM and 10:30AM. Doors will open at 8:00AM and 10:00AM. We are not taking reservations at this time; seating will be first come, first served.

The first service at 8:30 will be recorded and streamed on Facebook at 10:30AM.

There will be no Sunday school, no children or youth programming, no nursery, and no fellowship time. We are only providing worship service for now.

_____________________

Please wear a mask covering your nose and mouth when entering and leaving the building. After you are seated in the sanctuary, feel free to remove your mask.

Maintain six feet of separation as much as possible between you and members of another household while you are inside.

Avoid hugs and handshakes. Sorry!

Hand sanitizers will be available at each entrance to the sanctuary.

_____________________

Greeters and ushers will be available to help show you where to sit.

In order to maintain six feet separation, we are only utilizing half of the pews in each service. The “odd numbered rows” will be used in one service, the “even numbered rows” in the other.

Also in order to maintain separation, household groups will be seated at the ends of the pews, not in the middle. A household group with 5 or more will be seated on a pew by themselves.

The balcony will not be available for general seating.

_____________________

These procedures will be in place until further notice. We will do our best to stay up to date with the latest orders and guidelines of the state and county, and we will update our procedures when appropriate.

_____________________

While we would love for every one of you to attend, there are certain conditions under which you should remain home.

PLEASE STAY HOME if, in the past two weeks, you have been in close contact with a person who was confirmed to have COVID-19.

PLEASE STAY HOME if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, or have experienced them in the prior 72 hours:

  • Fever of 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or more
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea

It is RECOMMENDED (but not required) that you stay home if you are in the “at-risk population” who are more susceptible to complications from COVID-19. The Texas Department of State Health Services considers the at-risk population to be those who are 65 or older, especially those with one or more of the following:

  • Chronic lung disease
  • Moderate to severe asthma
  • Chronic heart disease
  • Severe obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis
  • Liver disease
  • Weakened immune system

If you fall under one of these categories, or are just understandably uncomfortable about attending, we will continue to stream our worship service online on Facebook at 10:30AM. You can get to it from our website, www.wallerbc.org/live-stream. We will also have an audio-only stream on our website, which is good when your internet speed is not fast enough for video.

If you have any questions about this, call the church office or email Pastor Erich at [email protected].
