Mt. Gilead’s Continued Response to Covid-19
Like you, we are navigating the current Covid situation as best we can. Our Leadership Team has been meeting regularly to be sure our church is doing our part to break the upward trajectory of Covid-19 in Morgan County. After much prayer and consideration, we have updated our guidance and programming to reflect our desire to do the right thing at this moment in time.
We are taking this week by week
Please be watching for continued updates as things may change quickly. At this time, we will continue meeting in-person and online at 9:00 & 10:30am. We will continue to have Children’s and Student programming on Sunday morning during services and Sunday evening. Classes and Groups will also be able to meet as long as the following mask and social distancing guidelines are followed.
New Mask Policy
Maybe wearing a mask is not for your sake, but it can be for the sake of others. When entering the Mt. Gilead church facility, we are asking that you wear your mask at all times including throughout the Sunday Morning service. We know there are varying views on masks, but let’s do this one for one another. We have continued to require masks in our Children's Ministry and Youth Group settings; and, we are now requiring everyone on Sunday morning to wear a face covering when you come in the building, throughout service, and, as you exit the building. If you are not comfortable wearing a mask, we invite you to join us for our online service at mgchurch.live.
Maintain social distancing in the church building
For some, the need to be at church and be surrounded by fellow Christians is great. The ministry we offer to this world is more critical than ever. We believe it's important for people to continue to feel comfortable coming to an in-person worship service to receive life-giving hope. For that reason, we will continue holding in-person worship services at 25% capacity. Families will need to leave at least two seats between other families. Gatherings in the lobby also need to be limited and mindful of social distancing.
Through all of this, we cannot help but go back to the Great Commandment we find in Matthew 22:37-40 —Love God. Love People.
