COVID – 19 Preparedness Measures for ECC

Church Family,

ECC leadership is assessing day by day the current health situation facing us. We are confident that during any crisis we have a firm foundation in Jesus Christ. Our faith is in God and His provision and we are determined to walk in faith and not fear. We have an opportunity each day to “Share Life, and Share Christ” in the midst of all circumstances, even those we have never encountered before. Our response, as God’s church, is to seek God’s wisdom in making decisions for our gatherings and to also care for those around us in this church and community. We want to embrace that role with the love of Christ.

Sunday Services

As of right now, we are planning to hold both services on Sunday. With no local cases in our area, we believe the benefit of gathering is an important step to encourage one another in faith and to care for one another. I plan to bring a special message about how to walk with Christ in faith in a time where fear and anxiety grip our culture.

  • We understand that this situation is changing regularly, and we will continue to assess it up until Sunday services.
  • Any changes in Sunday’s activities will be posted on LifeShare, ECC’s website, and through our text alerts.
  • Team meetings and small group gatherings are at the groups own discretion

Please keep in mind the following as we gather:

  • First and foremost, pray.
  • Please stay home if you or a family member are sick!
  • We are implementing a “No Touch” policy at worship, gatherings, and meetings. Greet one another warmly but avoid hugs and handshakes.

Common Preparedness Measures

We are encouraging all members and attenders to follow the guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control  on their website:

  • Wash hands regularly with soap and warm water for 20 seconds or more (about the same amount of time it takes to sing Happy Birthday)
  • Use hand sanitizer, if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your face as much as possible.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you or a family member are sick.
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you need to cough or sneeze.

We call for you to join leadership in praying for our community and country during this unprecedented time.

Praying with you and for you,

Pastor Dan
