Classes Resume 4/18

“not looking to your own interests but each

of you to the interests of the others.”

Philippians 2:4, NIV

The elders announced that Sunday morning Bible classes will resume on Sunday, April 18th at 9 am.

After a year of not having classes, the time looks right to start. However, we will open with caution, knowing that all have not received vaccines, especially children.

Here is what you need to know about classes.

Do we wear masks?

While masks are not required to attend worship, the elders continue to highly

recommend them. However, those restrictions are more stringent for children classes

due to the lack of vaccination at this time.

 

For children’s Bible classes, masks are required for all adult helpers and

elementary aged children (1st-5th grade). Masks are not required for children in

Kindergarten and younger. We will continue to review the need for masks, and this

policy will be updated as things change. For now, we believe masks to be beneficial,

and that they will help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our facilities. As such,

we will wear them during Bible classes.

What will children’s classes look like?

Dustin Jones put together measures to resume children’s classes that will enhance the safety of children, especially in this environment. More information on procedures can be found here.

All parents should complete a one-time online screening form. We will have a volunteer at the check-in desk who will check each child in and print their name tags for them.

 

If You Have a Nursery-Aged Child:

Please bring anything your child may need including diapers, bottles, etc. Our teachers will be wearing masks as they interact with your children to help keep them safe. All toys will be complete sanitized after each use.

 

If Your Child is Age 2 to 5:

Children should wash their hands before coming to Bible class. (Use the “Little Bathrooms” near the Pre- K hallway) OR they can use hand sanitizer on arrival.

• We will give each child hand sanitizer at the end of class.

• Each child will have their own supply box provided.

• At the end of class, each child should be picked up by their parent to go to the auditorium.

 

If Your Child is First Through Fifth Grade:

• Children should wash their hands before coming to Bible class. (Use the North bathrooms or kitchen sinks.) OR they can use hand sanitizer on arrival.

• We will give each child hand sanitizer at the end of class.

• Each child will have their own supply box provided.

What kind of classes will teens have?

Teen classes will meet as regular under the recommended guidelines set by the elders.

For more details, contact Warren Shepherd.

What’s in store for adults?

Young adult, college, and young professional classes will resume upstairs in their regular classes.

Two classes for those who don’t fit in those categories will be held downstairs in the south wing:

• The class in the chapel will be taught by Robert Taylor.

• A second class held in the fellowship area taught by a rotation of teachers.

Our study will be the Book of James. A study guide is available online or

by requesting one by emailing Robert Taylor. Printed guides are not available.

 

If you do not feel comfortable coming to an adult class at this time, the lesson on

James will be pre-recorded and available on Facebook and Waterview’s YouTube channel at 9 am on Sundays.

Due to sanitary needs, we will not have coffee or donuts available in the

foreseeable future.

We are looking forward to this further expansion as

we get back together again!
