We relaunched indoor services after receiving helpful feedback from the Tulsa Heath Department and our own Pandemic Response Team. It's gone very well and we've not had any incidents of Covid spread here.
Our indoor policies are guided by two Biblical principles: 1 - We'll honor the laws of our city unless they require us to sin. While some of the ordinances required inconvenience or creativity, none required sin. We're thankful. 2 - We'll love one another and our neighbors. The Bible speaks a lot about personal sacrifice for the sake of caring for the most vulnerable.
Before you come
If someone has a fever, displays signs of sickness, or has recently tested positive, your family should stay home and participate online.
If you are “pretty sure it’s just allergies or a cold,” please stay home and participate online. It’s not going to be fun sneezing into your mask, and your presence may prompt others to understandably not return.
Please arrive Sunday between 10:15-10:25. The service will begin at 10:30 and finish by 11:30.
If possible, park and enter on the West side of the building. Only park in the East lot if you need to use the elevator.
In compliance with the city ordinance, everyone ages 10 & up will need to wear a mask over their nose and mouth, except during communion. Parents, use discernment with younger children. Face coverings should not be placed on children younger than 2 years old. (If you have a special concern or skin allergy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do all we can to accommodate you in our balcony.)
We have spread-apart clusters of seats in the Worship Center. We also have overflow seating in the Activity Center (gym) with tons of space between tables.
We're not going to shake hands, but we still love you.
You can bring your own communion or we'll have pre-packaged ones available too.
You can give digitally or drop financial gifts in a box.
When it’s time to be dismissed, please exit so that our cleaning crew can clean the room before our friends from PECE (Eritrean Church) meet in our building. If you’d like to visit with others, we encourage you to do that outside. It’s fine to remove your mask outside.
