Phased reopening plan

Hello Evergreen Church,
 
We have missed worshiping with you in person, but have loved hearing the heartfelt testimonies about the life changes God has revealed to you during this time and the Words of Encouragement that have comforted and inspired our church family.
 
We are actively planning the phased reopening of worship services. We want to share with you some of the ways our discussions are developing into an action plan. Please remember that Evergreen Church will remain fluid and make adjustments necessary for the safety of our members and community.
 
Phase 1: May 10 – May 30 – Small group meet-ups
(No Sunday congregational worship until May 31)
  • Joint in home worship with 2-3 other families or friends follow CDC guidelines. Online worship will be offered through our Evergreen Church Facebook or on our website at EvergreenChurchGa.org.
  • Evergreen Church will also be open for small groups, meetings, and Bible studies. Meetings must be scheduled in advance through Raymonde Neely at Raymonde@EvergreenChurchGa.org, to ensure meeting rooms are properly set up to meet social distancing guidelines.
  • After meetings conclude, Raymonde will clean high traffic areas, ie. doorknobs, tables, and, water fountains. Doors should remain propped open while guests are in the building.
  • Evergreen Church office will remain closed unless you have prescheduled a meeting.
Phase 2: May 31 and June 7 – Outdoor worship and online worship continues
  • Evergreen Church will offer one in person congregational worship at 9:30 am as well as continue online worship service.
  • Bring your own chairs, blankets, or drive and sit in your golf cart or car.
  • We also strongly encourage you to continue to wear a face mask and will have a few provided should you need one.
  • Restrooms will not be available at this time.
Phase 3: June 14 – In person worship in the Evergreen Church building and online worship continues
  • Evergreen Church will offer two services located in the Great Room at 9:30 am and 11 am. Members are to preregister by using our Evergreen Church registration system or emailing Sarah@EvergreenChurchGa.org.
  • Areas will be pre-blocked to meet social distancing guidelines.
  • Church members and guests will be asked to head straight into worship, no mingling in the front lobby.
  • No bulletins will be handed out.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be displayed throughout the church.
  • We also strongly encourage you to wear a face mask and will have a few provided should you need one. This will increase comfort levels among all attendees.
Phase 4: August 2 – Normal Evergreen Church activities resume

Please note Children’s Ministry and Childcare TBD during each phase. These phases are also a ‘best guess’ at how things will go. We are asking everyone to remain flexible as Evergreen Church makes adjustments for the safety of our members and community.

Changes of our reopening status and ministry updates will be communicated through email and posted on our Evergreen Church website blog. We appreciate your patience and prayers as we navigate the future together. We are doing our best to address the most important immediate issues and should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Raymonde Neely at Raymonde@EvergreenChurchGa.org
