Latest Update on Our Pandemic Protocols (updated 8.6.21)
Thank you for your spirit of patience and cooperation over the past year as we have navigated the global pandemic, and as we have worked to keep everyone as safe as possible from COVID-19. Throughout the year, our protocols have been based on CDC guidelines and best practices of our sister churches.
We love our church family. And in the weeks ahead, we will continually update our protocols based on the most recent CDC guidelines and the best practices of other congregations in our area.
After the July 27th recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, BCC Leadership has evaluated and updated our current Worship and Ministry Activity Safety Protocols with the following guidelines:
Update: While still optional, we encourage everyone to wear a facial covering (mask) in indoor group settings when social distancing is not possible to protect one another, especially those at higher risk and children who are not yet eligible for vaccinations.
In-building worship and all current indoor programming activities will continue to be offered at this time. Outdoor Worship Wednesdays in the Prayer Garden will also continue to be offered.
We will continue to utilize minimal contact methods of receiving the offering and serving communion as well as distanced seating options for worship in both the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall.
Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will continue to be available for worship services and activities.
Different on-campus events (such as Bible studies, weddings, memorial services, and meetings) may have different protocols in place to accommodate the specific needs of those involved. Please follow the specific guidelines for these events which may vary from our Sunday protocols.
We recognize that there are a variety of perspectives represented in our church family. Out of love for one another, we want to follow the admonition of Paul in Philippians 2:3-4: In humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
God is with us as we continue through this challenging season!
