“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God, and trust also in me.” ~ Jesus


We are facing difficult and troubling times, but Jesus words are clear: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.”  That command may seem difficult, but He also tells us how to accomplish it: “Trust in God, and trust also in me.”


The church board, along with the pastoral staff, met to discuss on-going ministry considering new safety procedures from state and local authorities.  After prayer, the board voted to approve the following procedures:


  • Sunday Service will remain at 11:00am.

  • No Sunday School or Nursery.

  • If you are sick or have any symptoms, please stay home and worship via the livestream.

  • Sanctuary Safety Procedures

    • Seating every other row.

    • Only sit with those you already have close contact with.

    • Leave three chairs between you and those you do not already have close contact with.

  • Exiting Sanctuary Procedure

    • We will release by rows back to front.

  • Foyer Procedure

    • Do not gather before or after the service in the foyer.

    • Greet one another outside or in the gym keeping proper social distance.

  • Masks are highly recommended but not required.
    • If you desire a mask but do not have one, we have masks available in the church foyer.

    • Our decision relating to mask usage is in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order No. 20-52 paragraph 6 stating: “Counties may also exercise authority granted by K.S.A. 48-925 as amended by 2020 Special Session House Bill 2016, Sec. 33”.

      • House Bill 2016 Sec. 33 11-h states: “The board of county commissioners of any county may issue an order relating to public health that includes provisions that are less stringent than the provisions of an executive order effective statewide by the governor.”

      • Gray County Commissioners Decision: “Commissioners met on Tuesday June 30, 2020. They voted to NOT require masks in Gray County. Masks are highly recommended if the 6' social distancing can't be observed.” (taken from the Gray County Emergency Management Facebook Page)

  • Livestream
    • We recognize livestreaming is a vital part of ministry both during this trying time and beyond.  Because we care for those not comfortable meeting in person and the desire to reach as many as possible with the Gospel, the church board has approved several equipment upgrades to enhance the livestream ministry and make it permanent.


These procedures will be re-evaluated at the August board meeting.


We know for some these procedures are too strict, and for others not enough.  To that end we encourage you to again be reminded of Jesus words: ““Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God, and trust also in me.”
