Standing Announcements

RE-OPEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE UNTIL COVID -19 NUMBERS HAS DECREASED TO SAFER  LEVELS  

  • East Sixth Street, I love you and miss seeing your faces. For this month, let pick up on efforts to check on one another. All of us are not phone talkers and we are not going in one another’s homes now. Therefore, I am asking that you reach out to three members, not in your circle and check on them; let them know that you miss seeing them; if there is anything they may need help them with it.

ESSCC Re-Entry plan will be emailed to each member. If you have not given sister Carmen your email , please email her on the church’s email: esscc1919@coxinet.net.

Re-Entry Instructions:

We have been monitoring the numbers and there has been a sharp increase in the numbers of positive Covid -19 cases in Oklahoma. We will continue to watch these numbers carefully. The safety and well being of our church family is our top priority. To address these concerns we have developed a re-entry plan for our congregation to allow us to worship  while following CDC protocols once numbers are better under control.

When we re-open our church it will be done in phases. We are have prepared a safety plan for the protection of all members and visitors. We will follow CDC guidelines, as well as, re-opening plans in phases provided by the National Church and Regional Office. Social distancing and face mask must be worn throughout the worship service and no group fellowship will be allowed before and after service.

If you are a high risk for the virus we ask that you continue worshiping with us on Facebook Live. We are trying to get YouTube Live working from the sanctuary as well. We do upload service to our You Tube channel after service.

New worship time will be 10am. Our seating capacity is 40 members with social distancing. We will be using a waiting list system.

Please email ushers by 6pm on the Friday before the Sunday you plan to be at church.

Send your name and the name of everyone in your party. Email to : nannastz2001@yahoo.com.

We will still have a shorter service time due to covid-19 mask requirement that all mask stay on throughout service with social distancing.

We will enter through the handicap door, take temperatures , ask people to use hand sanitizer and you or your party will then be seated by the ushers; only two to a pew. Family groups will be seated together.

Pastor Jackson will conduct the corporate communion for communion and members will be given individual cups upon conclusion of service as they leave.

Dismissal will be by rows under the direction ushers,  offering and will be deposited in ESSCC offering box and communion given to each member.

We will have  communication teams. The name of each member of the church will be placed on a list. We ask that you notify us immediately if you  test positive for COVID-19 or becomes exposed to a person positive for COVID-19.  We will check the list of when you were last at church and notify anyone who was also in attendance of possible exposure.    We will NOT be able to report who has reported Covis-19 due to privacy laws but we can tell you the exposure date. Please be sure to cooperate with the state health department Covid-19 trackers.

Our re-entry plan will be emailed to each member if you have provided us with your  email.  If you don’t receive an email please send email to church at esscc1919@coxinet.net or send her a text.

If you are high risk we ask that you continue to  worship with us on Facebook Live. We are trying to get You Tube Live working from the sanctuary for members without Facebook. Worship services are uploaded to YouTube after services that evening.

If you have any questions please reach out to us. If you have questions about signing up please send Gloria a email : nannastz2001@yahoo.com.  . We are using her email to maintain and monitor the list.

Parking Lot Instructions

Please enter the parking lot from 7th street and follow directions. We will be putting larger SUV vehicles to the side or back to allow those in smaller vehicles to see, we appreciate your cooperation.

We ask that you remain by your cars and not visit a car to car so we can be careful to maintain our social distance. If you bring your chairs we ask that remain by your cars a safe distance from the car next to you. No chairs will be brought out of the church.

To keep our ushers or deacons safe while handing out communion and envelopes we are asking that you wear your mask in your car until you have received all these items and if you leave your car for any reason.

The bathrooms will be open in the church. We have to give heartfelt wave rather than warm hugs for now.

We will still be broadcasting on Facebook live so you can watch along from your cars if you are unable to see very well. Due to Pastor Jackson’s balance issues, we will not feel safe having him stand on any platforms for height.

So feel free to watch on your electronic devices from your cars. You should still be able to hear everything with our outdoor sound system thanks to Minster of Music, Sister Shawn Dawson, and Praise Leader Sister Ckai Dawson.

We will be taking communion together but due to COVID-19 will not be collecting the discarded waste, please take those home to throw away.

Please plan to arrive early to allow us time to lineup cars and get everyone settle before church begins so that late arriver’s do no disturb the service.

Online giving is still encouraged and can be done from your cars. Offerings will be collected as you drive out of the parking lot by one of the ushers. No contact offering will be available from 1-2 as usual.

The Disciple Women’s Fellowship has a Facebook group page. Sister Donna Roberts is our group administrator for the page. She and Sister Sheila Jones, president of Disciple Women,  are looking for great ideas that we can do together virtually while we all stay safe during this pandemic. Please share any ideas of interest you may have with the group. We have already seen recipes, community resources, and inspirational posters. Looking forward to getting together soon. Maybe yoga, quilting, healthy cooking classes, so many ideas. Tell them yours.

We are encouraging anyone who has been unable to participate in church services to join us on Zoom on Wednesday Nights for Bible Study via conference call.  Please share this opportunity with any family member or friend. We just need their email address so they can receive the instructions on how to call in.

Prayer List will be posted on the Web page until such time as paper programs will once again be distributed during the worship service. We will continue to ask that we remember everyone in our calls and prayers each week. If you have a prayer request please send it to sister Carmen by Thursdays each week to have the names added or removed from our prayer list listed below. You can text her cell phone or leave the message on the website prayer request form.

As we prepare to re-open our church it will be done in phases. We are preparing a safety plan for the protection of all members and visitors. We will follow CDC guidelines, as well as, re-opening plans in phases provided by the National Church and Regional Office. Social distancing and face mask must be worn throughout the worship service and no group fellowship will be allowed before and after service.

We will post the Safety Plan on this website for all to review and familiarize themselves with in the near future.
