No Bible Classes on SUndays

Due to the rising Covid-19 numbers in Amarillo and out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health of our congregation, we will not be resuming our 9:00 am children and adult Bible classes until after the first of the year. However, we will restart our children’s worship on Sunday November 1. All ages, nursery through 5th grade, will meet in the children’s area from 10:15-11:30am. Adults are encouraged to stay in contact with the members of your classes by phone calls, texts, emails, or Zoom. We are still open for our Sunday morning worship assembly at 10:15am each week.

 

The elders are making these decisions for us one or two weeks at a time and we intend to keep everybody informed through all our communication channels. Thank you so much for your flexibility and patience as we navigate these strange times together.

MEETING TOGETHER AT CENTRAL

 

Worship: Our worship service continues on Sunday mornings, both in-person and online. As of October 4, children from 4 years old up to 5th grade will participate in worship starting at 10:15am. Nursery and toddler services will be available during worship.

Wednesday Night Class: On Wednesday nights in October, we have a hybrid evening class that is both in-person (limited to accommodate social distancing) and online as well as a couple outdoor events. The student ministry will have either indoor or outdoor activities on Wednesday evenings. There are no children's ministry events or classes on Wednesdays at this time.

Sunday Morning Bible Class: Our Sunday adult Bible classes are on hold until the end of the year. At that time, the leadership will assess the current Covid-19 conditions and see what is best for our community.

WHAT TO EXPECT RIGHT NOW

  • Bring your own mask and wear it while inside the church building. (We'll provide masks for those without.)

  • Please maintain proper social distancing.

  • Restrooms and elevators are open, but please observe social distancing in these spaces.

  • Communion is available in individually packaged kits. Be sure to pick up yours at the door on your way in.

  • Half the pews are open for seating.

​​

OTHER REMINDERS

  • No coffee / donuts / snacks served by the church

  • No children's ministry classes on Wednesdays

  • One hybrid Bible class on Wednesdays for adults (limited space)

  • All exterior and worship center doors will be propped open.

  • The offering will be collected in boxes inside the worship center, or you can give digitally.

  • Bulletins will be provided in the designated pews.

  • Water fountains are taped off.

  • Find hand sanitation stations near each door.

 

If you are in any of the at-risk categories, it's still a good idea to stay home and participate in our worship assembly online. But if you're not hindered by health concerns, feel free to join us with your mask on next Sunday. There's something noble and transformational in worshiping God, even when it's not easy --- maybe especially when it's not easy. Lifting a strained note of praise to the Lord through a mask can be faithful and formational.

Wearing masks each Sunday is a way for Central to support our local city leaders and health care officials and demonstrate love to our neighbors and the broader community. Our elders continue to monitor the local and regional Covid-19 developments in an effort to protect the Central family. And we're still praying for you and for our entire congregation. Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
