October Worship Gathering Guide

Below is a guide for in-person worship at Pauline beginning October 4, 2020. We continue to encourage you to take personal inventory of your level of caution and comfort with the following protocols and make a wise decision for you and your family. We’d like to remind you to remember to wear your masks as you enter and leave the building and continue to ask that if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, are not feeling well, or at high risk for contracting COVID-19 that you remain at home and join us online. We will continue to monitor health department recommendations and our local Covid-19 statistics and respond with the necessary caution and care for our church family.

Chapel (3-5yo's) will also begin October 4 during 10:45am worship upstairs in the children's building. If you are looking for a way to serve or plug into either of these VITAL ministries, we would love for you to jump into the rotation. You can contact Aly Rabb (870.723.9630) for Nursery or Emily Howard (870.723.3754) for Chapel. There is also a family room available in the first room on the left off the fellowship hall during the services.

Should the weather prevent us from meeting outside, children will be grouped in a large group area with indoor precautions (see below) during the normal 9:45-10:30 am Sunday School time. There will be no JumpStart at this time.
