Due to rising COVID cases in Whitfield and Murray Counties, we will make the following adjustments to Life Groups at the HWY 76 campus for the remainder of 2020.

 
  • Nursery through 5th grade LifeGroups will resume meeting at 10:00 AM on December 6th.  These classes will also meet on December 13th and 20th at 10:00 AM in their normal LifeGroup rooms. 
  • Middle School through Senior Adult LifeGroups will not meet in person at 10:00 AM in our LifeGroup space on Sunday mornings for the remainder of 2020.  
  • LifeGroups are encouraged to do the following:
    • Use nontraditional means to continue Bible study and connection through the rest of the year.
      • Class notes distributed. 
      • Zoom or other digital media classes/devotionals/prayer sessions at a time other than Sunday morning. (Sunday evening are an excellent time)
      • An offsite social distanced gathering to celebrate the holiday together. 
      • Use of GroupMe, texts, phone, or other means to remain connected. 
    • Determine one Christmas project for each class and carry that out by December 25th. (The Giving Wall that we have had for several years will be ready for giving activities on December 6th)
    • It will help classes to stay connected if our adult classes target one of the three services to come to and try to attend service as a group.  The teacher can set this target service (8:30 AM, 10:00 AM, 11:15 AM) and encourage the class to come at that time.  Variations of service attendance will naturally occur due to the needs of individual families.  
    • Each class is asked to form a plan to be part of the Evangelism Strategy for 2021. A separate document will be forthcoming to outline the needed goals for that strategy.  
  • As per our norm on the week between Christmas and New Year, there will be no LifeGroup meetings on December 27th.  
  • All LifeGroups are planned to resume normal schedule on January 3rd.  Any variation to that schedule will be communicated as quickly as information is available.
