Welcome to the South Jacksonville Church of Christ web site.

*****************

The South Jacksonville Church of Christ will  worship at the building Sunday, June 28, 10:30 am

The elders have reassessed the situation and feel that we can resume meeting on the first day of the week. This initially will be for worship service only. We have reviewed multiple data sources that suggest one of the more significant risks for infection occurs when people are gathered in a closed space with limited ventilation. Risk is time dependent and can be increased by vocalization that may aerosolize the virus. Therefore windows will be opened and the length of time for meeting and singing will be abbreviated for the safety of those in attendance.

For those who have chosen to worship from home, the service will be available on-line for your participation.

Our gathering together requires us to be considerate of the safety of those meeting, as well as the safety of the surrounding community. In order to help us to meet this goal we will follow CDC guidelines, as is reasonably possible, to allow us to worship properly and at the same time mitigate transmission of disease. Link to the CDC guidelines, https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/organizations/index.html

To help decide whether to attend services at the building, each member should ask themselves the following questions:

  • Do I have a fever or chills?
  • Do I have a cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing?
  • Do I have fatigue, muscle or body aches or headache?
  • Do I have a new loss of taste or smell?
  • Do I have a sore throat, congestion or a runny nose? (Even if you think it is allergies)
  • Do I have nausea, vomiting or diarrhea?
  • Have I been exposed to someone who is suspected to have or documented to have Covid-19?

If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, then you should not attend services at the building for the safety of others. We will be taking temperatures at the door and for those with a temperature greater than or equal to 100 should either attend services in your vehicle or from home.

Prior to coming to services personal needs should be completed ahead of time as best is possible. Bathrooms will be available, but will need to be disinfected between each user for safe use by those who follow.

When meeting in the parking lot 6 foot social distancing should be maintained as well as when entering the building. As much as we have missed one another, direct contact with other members (handshakes, hugs) should be avoided.

Upon entering the building members will be expected to wear masks at all times with the exception of children 2 years and under. By wearing a mask you are protecting others from yourself. We won't provide masks at the building, but if you don't have a mask and need one, please let the elders know in advance and we'll make arrangements.

Hand sanitizer will be provided for your use. Please use sanitizer liberally to protect yourself and to help reduce surface contamination. Avoid touching surfaces as much as possible in the building.

Seating will be limited based on appropriate social distancing. In order to maximize seating for all who want to attend, seating will be assigned and members will be ushered to their seats. Please arrive early as this will help to minimize confusion. Please contact Connie Hill or Rob Fox to confirm your attendance on Sunday 6/28, so your seat can be assigned.  

You are welcome to bring the bread and fruit of the vine that you have been using at home to partake of The Lord’s Supper. If you don’t have any, The Lord's Supper bread and fruit of the vine will be supplied in pre- packaged containers to minimize potential cross contamination. This will be available in the foyer and should be picked up on the way to your seats for use at the appropriate time. Collection plates will also be available in the foyer for members to contribute as they have prospered. Contributions can be made before or after services.

Floors will be marked with tape to assist in maintaining 6 foot separation. Every other pew will be closed to seating.

In the event the auditorium is full, seating will be available in the women's classroom where participation in the worship will be facilitated by live video feed. Visitors will be directed to the high school classroom.

Additionally, folding chairs will be available for outdoor use with WiFi available for personal video streaming. You have the option to sit in your car and stream the service via WiFi from there. WiFi connection info for the various areas will be posted in those areas.

For those who have chosen to worship from home, the service will be available on-line for your participation.

We look forward to meeting together again.
