COVID Plan

Church Updates

Update: December 3, 2020

We’d love to have you join us for in-person, social distanced worship with or without a mask. If you choose not to wear a mask, we ask that you maintain a 6-feet distance from others outside of your household. 

We also live stream our worship service here if you’d prefer to worship from home.

At all Family Ministry events, including Sunday School, Nursery, Awana, Vacation Bible School, and other special events, hand sanitizer stations are provided in all common areas. Children and volunteers are encouraged to frequently use the stations each time they pass. We currently require all adults (ages 14+) to social distance (6ft) from other adults outside their family or wear a mask.

Oak Grove Family Ministry Response to COVID-19 and In-Person Ministry

Update: May 14, 2020

We will resume Oak Grove’s in-person corporate worship services, beginning this Sunday, May 17. A few things you should know as we resume our services:

  • Stay home if you aren’t feeling well
  • No Sunday School for children or adults
  • No nursery (but you are welcome to use the room if needed)
  • Chairs are spaced out to allow for social distancing
  • Please refrain from handshakes and hugs
  • No coffee before and after service
  • We will have communion with added precautions (preparers and servers in masks and gloves)
  • No bulletins – watch for email updates and announcements on pre-service slides

If for any reason you don’t feel comfortable joining us in person this Sunday, we will still be livestreaming the service and you are welcome to join us virtually as we have been doing for the last 8 weeks.

Update: May 11, 2020

We will resume in-person corporate worship this Sunday, May 17 at 10:15 a.m. We will only have a worship service, and Sunday School for all ages will resume June 7 at 9:00 a.m.

An announcement with more details will come out the afternoon of May 14.

Update: April 3, 2020

The church office will be closed for the month of April. Our ministry team members will be working from home, and our phone system will forward to the appropriate person’s cell phone, so please call the office as you normally would.

Update: March 20, 2020

Update: March 11, 2020

Tonight our Deacons and Elders met to consider how to care for church family and community members considering the government’s recommendations. More details will follow, but please note:

All activities, studies, etc. hosted at the church facility are cancelled until further notice.
We are recommending cancellation for all other church-related activities hosted in someone’s home or another location.

We are working on several plans to equip groups to take advantage of technology so you can still meet virtually. Not tech-savvy? No sweat. We’ll assist with set-up, and train everyone possible in how to use. (Details forthcoming.)
In the meantime, if you or someone you know has a specific need, please follow the link at the top to let us know.

We are trusting the Lord as we err on the side of caution to care for one another, creatively consider how we can continue to stay connected in community, and honor & submit to government authorities (Rom. 13:1-7; 1 Pet. 2:13–17).

Let’s use some of this extra time at home to grow in reading the Word. If you need suggestions, check out this page: https://www.ligonier.org/blog/bible-reading-plans/

Don’t see what you’re looking for?

If you are looking for a group that meets on a different night, or have an idea for a ministry we aren’t currently doing, let us know.
