When you were thinking about what 2020 would look like there is no way that you would have predicted the current pandemic that we are in. No one is having the year that they were planning on. Everyone is having to make significant adjustments to their lives right now. One group that has been deeply affected is churches. Today Baker Sandoval Cleaning has some tips for you on what to do with your church during this time.
Churches Practicing Social Distancing
Right now, government officials have mandated that we practice safe social distancing in order to stop the spread of coronavirus. Social distancing requires us to stay within six feet of other individuals and not to gather in groups larger than 10 people. This has required churches to shut down their traditional worship services and find other alternatives to keep their members spiritually fed. Church leaders across the country are rapidly trying to accommodate these changes. One way that many churches are staying in touch with their faith community is by providing online or televised church services. Every church will have different capabilities for providing remote worship services to their members. If you have not ever done this before you can call another church and ask them for advice. You may find that some of your church members can help with this process. In addition to televised church services, you can encourage your members to reach out to one another. Everyone is feeling out of sorts with all of the chaos in the world. A phone call, text, or private message on social media can make a huge difference for someone. You can also stop by and drop off a surprise on their porch. Taking time to brighten someone’s day is worth all of the effort it takes. This will help your congregation stay connected during this anxiety ridden experience. If your church hosts Bible studies or other small groups you cannot host those in person during this time. You can find alternative ways to keep these groups going. Each group will need to choose an option that works best for them. They can meet on Zoom phone calls, Facetime, group texts, Voxer, Marco Polo, and more. Keeping these groups going will help your members feeling hope and connection. As a church leader you will want to make sure that you reach out to the different groups that you are in charge of. See what plans they have for connecting with their groups at this time. Give them some of the tips listed above. Ask them to get back to you with any concerns that you can help address. If any members are struggling you will want to reach out to them personally.
