EFMC Building Reopening Updates & Procedures
 
 
Please refer to this page for updates concerning our service locations and times as we navigate the gradual re-opening of our
building for in-person services. 
 
 
 
      How thankful we are to open our physical church building! We will have one worship service at 10:00 AM enabling us to encourage all ages to attend either in person or via our usual live-stream outlets. We are so grateful to God for His provisions of online services during these past weeks, and we give Him praise for the ability to slowly regather in our church building as well. Please take the time today to give God the glory for His blessings!
 
     We understand that all are not able to attend whether those in a high risk category or who do not yet feel comfortable. For those who we do see on Sundays, know we will practice social distancing in our lobby and halls, and ask you to avoid congregating in these areas. Entry doors will be propped open, as well as worship center doors, and hand sanitizer will be available in our lobby allowing for as much of a touch-less experience as possible.
You will find our Sanctuary re-arranged to provide social-distancing, and we ask that you allow proper distance between yourself and those who are not in your family. Please use the bathrooms sparingly.
     Adults please wear a mask; masks for children are at parent’s discretion, noting that it is not recommended for children under two. Weather-permitting, our pastors will greet you outside from a distance as you leave, and we ask that you not socialize after the service. We will have a modified children’s church to allow for social distancing and proper safety precautions, please see our new procedures below:
 
We miss our EFMC kids and will be putting the following social-distancing measures in place during our children’s church hour:
 
Pre-K/Jr. Church:
1.) More classes and classrooms will be established for children of the same age/class so that each class will consist of no more than ten children and one teacher.
2.) All children will have a set of their own supplies for crafts, etc. which will be for personal use only.
3.) Proper ventilation will take place in each room.
4.) Disinfecting supplies will be available for teachers should the need arise during the children’s church hour.
5.) Hand-sanitizer will be available for all children in the main hallway just outside of Kid’s Church area.
 
Nursery Care:
Nursery care will take place in a new room void of toys, but music will be played and parents will be encouraged to bring a toy for their own child’s personal use. Disinfecting supplies will be available for parents to use should the need arise. There will be no more than six in the nursery areas at one time and we will incorporate two nursery areas in order to adhere to six-per room.

There will be no mid-week in-person services,but we will have our message and Kid’s Klub via live-stream at the usual 6:30 PM time. We hope to incorporate more in-person services in the future.
We look forward to worshiping with you Sunday, whether in-person, or via live-stream!
 

To God be the glory!
