WELCOME TO SERVICES AT CHURCH!

MLLC is resuming services at the Church on Sunday May 31st with 10:30 and 6:30 services.

 

We will be reopening under the current government guidelines. While we will do our best to implement social distancing as well as taking other recommended precautions at services, we strongly encourage anyone with underlying health conditions or who are otherwise uneasy about gathering to feel free to listen online in the comfort and safety of your home (mllchurch.org).

If you or a member of your household is not feeling well and have any symptoms that could be the flu or COVID-19, please do not plan to attend church and consider listening to the service on our website. (mllchurch.org).

The Service Director and Ushers will be available for any questions you may have.

Attendance recommendations, changes, notes:

● Avoid greeting by handshake.
● Attempt to maintain 6-foot distancing from non-household members.
● Sanctuary seating has been reduced to 25% of maximum occupancy. Sanctuary seating is only available in areas that are not blocked off by tape or as directed by an usher. Seating is available in the other areas of the church but 6-foot distancing from non-household members must be maintained.
● It should be noted that singing is a high risk point of disease transfer. Singing will be kept to a minimum. If possible, use the song books on your phone instead of the paper books.
● A collection will be taken without passing collection plates.
● Avoid socializing in doorways or the entryway area to keep social distancing available for entering and exiting the church.
● Use the exit door nearest your seating area to reduce congestion in the main entryway area.
● Freely use the hand sanitizer by the entry doors.
● Doors will intentionally be propped open.
● The Coffee Shop will not be open.
● Communion services will not be held until further notice.
● The church will be cleaned between services.

Other suggestions:
● The CDC advises the “use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who unknowingly may have the virus from transmitting it to others.” Feel free to wear a mask if you are more comfortable doing so.
● Wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer.
● Try to cough or sneeze into your elbow.
● Elders and those with health conditions should avoid larger gatherings.
