MCCC Coronavirus update:
As many of you are aware, on Monday April, 27, Governor Abbott launched the beginning of the state’s plan to reopen Texas. On Wednesday April 29, we also received an email from the North Texas District of The Assemblies of God outlining new guidelines for churches to reopen.
We will still hold our service ONLINE and allow each of you to make your own decision as to what is best for your family and rejoining corporate worship. The Governor’s actions have opened the doors for churches to return to “in-person” gatherings, but not without many restrictions.
We believe we must submit to those who have been placed in authority over us and are making plans to implement precautions as follows:
• We want to encourage the vulnerable to stay home.
• We are thoroughly sanitizing the church building before we reopen.
• There will be hand sanitizer stations at each entrance.
• Ushers and Greeters will wear masks and gloves, and remain at a 6-foot distance.
• The use of masks by attendees are optional.
• There will be a “no physical touch” policy as we ask you respect the 6-foot distance to
be followed by all persons not under the same household.
• Fellowship and common areas such as our coffee bar will be closed.
• Children’s services: nursery, pre-school, and elementary kid’s services will not be
available at this time. (The children’s wing will be closed to all).
• Families are requested to sit together in the sanctuary and there will be at least two
empty seats (or six feet separation) between parties in a row. There will be alternate
rows between attendees (every other row left empty).
• Restrooms will be limited to the number of people so there is six feet of separation.
• We still encourage “online giving” but will provide a central collection box in the building
where families can deposit their tithes and offerings.
• At the close of the service, we will release by rows, encouraging social distancing and
ask that you leave promptly in your vehicles.
• We will sanitize frequently touched surfaces between services.
• Communion will be provided without attendees having to touch the same surfaces and
As you can see this is quite the undertaking.
With that said we are EXCITED to announce our actual RE-OPEN dates!
• SUNDAY, MAY 24th at 11:00 am - DAY OF WORSHIP
After praying and reviewing all of this information, including receiving counsel from our pastoral team, staff and the deacon board, we have decided to begin with our first live re-entry service.
o Important: Due to attendance limitations, we need to know how many are planning to attend so we can make sure we are prepared and create a safe environment. To do this, we will need you to REGISTER through the Church App. We will stop taking registrations once we reach our threshold, however should that happen, you are welcome to watch the service ONLINE!
• SUNDAY, MAY 31st at 9:00 am and 11:00 am - FIRST FULL SERVICES
We are excited that we will resume our regular services with a wonderful day of celebration!
o In addition to the guidelines referenced above, we will reserve the 9:00 AM service for church and community members who are age 60 and above.
o Everyone else is welcome to join us for the 11:00 AM service. Although we are
excited to use our newly transformed kid’s ministry space, please remember in these beginning stages of our return, there will be NO ON-SITE KIDS MINISTRY. However, we will have a kid’s bag for any kid’s that attend the 11:00 am service with their families.
As always, if you are experiencing any symptoms please do not put others at risk by your attendance.
This is a plan and not a promise. As we have seen, this situation is constantly changing. Our greatest concern is for the safety and well-being of our church family, guests, and community.
• We will continue to offer our ONLINE SERVICES; Sunday worship, Mid-Week ministries including Kids, Jr High, Student, Young Adult, Men, Women, Senior Citizen and Monday night prayer . . . along with all our weekly social media content.
I am so proud of my staff that have worked diligently to take our online world to a whole new level. I have enjoyed watching the content that is being produced on a daily basis and hope you are as well.
I also understand that some families may not want to return when we are able to reopen. In the end, I want you to do what you believe is in the best interest of your family. Please know that Judy and I, along with our entire staff, love you and can’t wait to see all of you. God bless and we love you!
