EFA is continuing to monitor the COVID pandemic, CDC guidelines, state guidelines, and county guidelines. Our Building is continuing to be disinfected on a regular basis and we have complied with county guidelines by posting signs requiring facial coverings. In our sanctuary, we have a capacity of about 100 people when socially distanced. Seating is allowed in every other pew with one family on the end of each pew. Currently, with this method of seating in place, we are within capacity, but we are reevaluating our attendance on a weekly basis to see if we need to add another worship time for our church family.
Regarding masks mandates, we advise you to follow the state and county guidelines listed for the present time, but we recognize this is a personal decision. Our KidMin and Youth ministries have also implemented department specific guidelines appropriate for ministering to minors in a health conscious way.
For those who must remain at home, we would never push you to return to church before you are ready. But we hope you will worship with us online through Ellettsville First Assembly's Facebook Page or our YouTube channel. Links are provided below for access to our streams. We begin at 10:00 am Sunday mornings, with Kidopolis beginning their stream following their worship alongside their parents in the sanctuary. Fuel is also streaming their services weekly on Wednesday nights at 7pm.
We do ask that if you are experiencing any symptoms associated with COVID-19 that you remain home until you are healthy in order to prevent the possible spread of the virus. We pray daily that a wave of healing will sweep through our region, state, nation, and world.
