Living Word Church Family,
As you are aware, the city of Houston and Harris and surrounding counties have faced rising infection rates of COVID-19. Because of this increase we are working daily to develop safety precautions that will allow us to reunite in as safe a way as possible. According to TMC.EDU projections, there is a possibility of some flattening in number of cases within the next couple of weeks. This shows that increased safety measures are having a positive impact.
Therefore, after several weeks of meeting solely on-line we want to take a tentative graduated step towards reopening for live worship services.
Please keep an eye out for any updates sent through our normal means of communication; we are also building a COVID related area on our website which will always have latest information on service times, including on-site and online options.
If the projections of flattening continue, starting next Sunday, July 26, LWC will offer one worship service at 9 a.m. and on-line services at both 9 and 10:30am.
We want to “save you a seat”, so reservations will be taken for the 9am experience in order to save you a seat and assure that social distancing guidelines in the sanctuary are attainable. The rationale behind one live service at this stage is to guarantee that there is an adequate support of volunteer staff. The goal is to reopen both 9 and 10:30am services on August 9th. Of course, all plans are subject to change.
Also, our church board has directed that all those who attend live worship services at LWC must wear a mask while not seated.
