Towne South's PLan for covid-19



How we are approaching this

The health and safety of your family is the utmost priority for us.  Therefore, as a church we are taking additional steps to reduce the possibilities of spreading germs that may cause illness.


As of March 15, 2020, 

  • We will not be meeting in person for our services as a church family until at least April 13.  
  • Our cleaning team has gone above and beyond to disinfect our building, especially the kid's areas. 
  • We are working diligently in order create a plan for community to happen still in unique ways. Including the use of technology like social media, virtual meeting apps, and more.  

If you find yourself sick, please heed our country's leadership recommendation and seek medical attention by a professional and avoid contact with other people until treated.

We are closely following the CDC and government updates and would like to encourage you to do the same.  We understand that as more news is released, that you may have questions about what our next steps are as a church.

UPDATES from our LEADership

Take a moment to read out churches response to COVID-19 below. 

The announcements are in order as they were released by our leadership.  

  • MArch 19, 2020

    In consideration of the public health concerns related to COVID-19, and in accordance with Executive Order NO. 117 issued by Governor Roy Cooper on Saturday March 14, Towne South will be suspending worship services at the church building.  At this point the executive order is not set to expire until April 13. So, for the next month, will be hosting services online, Sunday morning at 10:00am.   We will be steaming the service live on Facebook.  In addition, we plan on beginning to live stream through Youtube.  Please subscribe to our channel by searching for Towne South Church of Christ on Youtube may then watch our services on your Smart TV, RUKU, Fire TV, or Chrome cast by using the Youtube app. The services will have a communion and offering time, and we invite you to participate with us.

  • March 13, 2020

    The church leadership thought it would be a good idea to send out an update about health concerns surrounding the Covid-19 (corona).  We are actively monitoring the news from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.  As of right now (Friday morning), we are planning to have worship services as usual this weekend. We are taking extra precautions to clean and disinfect key parts of the building.  We will be doing that before, during, and after the services on Sunday (especially in the children’s areas). We are currently discussing alternate methods of distributing communion and collecting offerings. If you are someone who is older with an underlying health condition, it might be especially good to stay home until more information becomes available.  As always, if you or a family member is sick, stay home. We will be streaming our service live via Facebook and encourage you to watch online.  If you are planning to stay home and would like to take the Lord’s supper, you can stop by the church office and pick up a communion packet today from 9-5 or Saturday morning from 9-11.  If you choose to attend in person, how about if we all just smile and wave at each other rather than shake hands, hug, or high-five one another. Hopefully this will all be over soon, but in the meantime we want to do our best to help keep one another healthy. If the situation changes, we will post it on our webpage and notify you through email and Facebook.
     
    NOW, in spite of all we have said above, we do want you to know that we have special guests lined up for Sunday, and we will not be able to reschedule them--so, this will be an opportunity to enjoy these special guests.  Aaron Collins (Paul & Lisa Pipkin’s son-in-law) will be leading the musical worship.  Aaron will have been here this weekend working with our Youth Band.  Kevin McNeil, the Church Planters of Eastern North Carolina’s planter for the Goldsboro work, will be preaching--it will be an opportunity to get to know Kevin and his wife, Maiah.
     
    You decide what you believe is best for you and your family.
     
    In His Service,
    The Towne South Leadership
