Reopening of GMC
 
     We at Groveland Missionary Church have carefully considered what it will take when we open our building to in-person worship services and the steps we are taking to keep every attender as safe as possible as we continue to deal with the pandemic we find ourselves in. We will do our best to keep the spread of the virus from happening, but we cannot guarantee that it will not happen. To these ends we are asking the following things from those who attend.

1.  If you feel sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus, please stay home. We will still broadcast our message on Facebook either live or prerecorded for you to listen to or watch at your convenance. Also if you are concerned about catching the virus and feel that coming to church may expose you, do not feel required or compelled to attend in any way.
 
2.  We have cleaned and disinfected our entire building. We will continue to do so every week, especially those frequently touched surfaces.
 
3.  We ask that family groups keep social distancing at least 6 feet apart and refrain from shaking hands, hugging, or other gestures that bring others in close proximity with you.
 
4.  We ask that you consider wearing a face mask when in close proximity with others especially when entering and exiting the building or in the lobby. During the worship time, once social distancing is established, mask are recommended but not required. The church has some basic, disposable masks that you can use if you need them.
 
5.  We have provided hand sanitizer stations around the building that you are welcomed to use.
 
6.  Please sit in every other pew to maintain the 6 foot social distancing. Every other pew will have a “Do Not Sit” sign to help guild you.
 
7.  We will not “pass the plate” to collect offerings. Instead the ushers (masked) will maintain control of the plate and present it to individuals.  If you so desire, a plate will also be available by the sound booth to give before the service starts each week.
 
We have started in building worship services and are still posting our service on Facebook.  Sunday School  will start July 5th and our weekly Prayer Fellowship on July 8th.  Please continue to check back on this website or on our Facebook page for more updates.
