COVID - 19
Tri County Christian Church urges all of our church family to help keep yourself and others safe during this global outbreak of Covid - 19 also known as the Coronavirus.. As a church we are taking preventative measures to help the effort to prevent the spread of this and other viruses. At this time, Tri County will continue to hold weekly services. having made that decision, your well-being is very important to us, so this is what we are doing to keep our church safe and clean:
(1) We will discontinue passing offering plates during the service. A single offering plate will be placed on the Communion Table in the front of the church. You may place your offering there either before or after the service. You may also contribute on our Website or through our church app. Please remember, whether we have a very large or very small attendance, our operational costs are the same and we are asking you to continue your offering even if not in attendance.
(2) we will sanitize highly touched surfaces before and after services such as doors, handles, tables, bathrooms, etc.
(3) Only pre-packaged food will be provided to children. We will immediately discontinue serving snacks from common sources such as large containers of chips, goldfish, etc..
(4) We will make small modifications to the way communion is served until further notice - such that there will be no common plate for bread.
The news media has brought a great deal of attention to this situation. Some of the information changes, but one element has been remarkably consistent: Most of us face limited risk from COVID-19. Some, especially older persons with pre-existing health issues have faced significant threat and some have died. While everyone is welcome at Tri County, it may be prudent for those at greatest risk to stay home for their own safety.
We encourage you to take every precaution to keep yourself and others safe. You can help stop the spread of this and other viruses by:
(1) Staying home when you or your family members are sick. We are working hard to get our services video taped and we will let you know when we've done this.
(2) Wash your hands often with soap and woater for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
(3) Greet each other with smiles and waves rather than handshakes and hugs.
(4) Cover your face when sneezing or coughing and get in the habit of not touching your face.
(5) If you are returning from an area with a large number of cases of the Coronavirus, , refrain from attending church or other events for at least 14 days.
(6) If you know someone who tests positive for COVID-19, please let us know right away so that we can find a way to help and pray for anyone impacted.
Plesae remember that God has not called us to live in fear bu tin faith. Paul wrote, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:7).
Together we have faith to receive everything that God has promised to us by His word. We will continue to experience a wonderful, Spirit-filled atmosphere at our services, and we look forward to ministering to you each week.
