June 12, 2020 Update
I trust this update finds you safe and well this week. I know that the physical, cultural, and spiritual challenges of our lives make the longing for stability, familiarity, connection, and normality even greater now since we have last met on March 15, 2020.
When we first began social and physical distancing in March, I began to envision the day, not knowing it would be this long, when we would be able to return to our sanctuary as normal. On the other hand, more recent developments have indicated that such a return and regathering in our sanctuary will not look normal, but instead will involve special precautions, changes, safety measures, and most likely a extended process unfolding in various phases as circumstances allow.
This week our County Executive signed an executive order to move Prince Georges County into a modified Phase 2 of Covid 19 Recovery. What this means: Places of worship can begin after June 15, 2020 to have in person worship services at 25% capacity occupancy limits, as well as online worship services. Although, I would be excited to see you after 13 weeks, we will not be open this week. A date is still to be established and notification will be communicated to you – next week!
Next Steps for Landover Hills Baptist Church:
- A mailing called “Re-Gathering” will go out next week to your home address. It will have steps and procedures to follow when returning to church. You will need to make sure that you and your family understand and abide by for the safety of all.
- You will be notified in the mailing of a “Re-Gathering” date and time. This will be followed up with a telephone call, text, Facebook posting, email, and an announcement on our website. (If we do not have your current cell number or if you prefer the use of a different email address) – please send to firstname.lastname@example.org before next Tuesday.
- Several items need to be purchased and details worked out for the proper safety and sanitizing protocols for the safety of all. Which should completed soon.
Thank you for being patient and gracious during this season. I, so much looking forward to our “Re-Gathering.” Should you have specific questions, please do not hesitate to ask them. I look forward to seeing you soon!
