Praise The Lord Christ Memorial Temple Church Family!
I'm writing to inform you that we will return to in-person worship on Sunday, August 23rd. Like most of you, I have also missed being together this past week in the worship and I can't express to you how excited I am to gather in person this coming week!
Starting August 23rd, we will begin our 3-day revival (8/23-8/25). In an effort to distance socially, there will be spaced out seating in the sanctuary. In addition, we will open and stream the service in the Mitchell Center. The Mitchell Center will be open to anyone who feels uncomfortable around crowds, yet you still want to come to the House of The Lord. The Mitchell Center will only be available during the revival and each Sunday following … (Not on Wednesday). The Mitchell Center will open 15 min. prior to service times. For those who are quarantined, we will continue to live-stream on Facebook and our church website (www.cmtlafayette.org).
One important addition to our plan to return to worship is that the nursery will not be available and there will not be Sunday school classes until further notice.
Our Shared Commitments
As noted previously in earlier communications, though we are returning to gathered worship, things are still far from normal. COVID-19 remains a concern, and it is critical that we conduct ourselves in a way consistent with the grace and mercy shown to us in and through our Lord Jesus Christ. It’s not about any one individual’s perspective or opinion and there is no perfect plan.
In conclusion, I want to express again my excitement about our return to gathered worship. Though things are not ideal, we have nothing to fear. So, may the Lord increase our faith and keep growing us in His grace and mercy.
