New Hope Update - COVID-19

Greetings Everyone,
 
It is with great excitement that we announce the Board has agreed upon the decision re-open New Hope for in-person services beginning
Sunday, February 14, 2021.
 
We have carefully been watching the COVID numbers both nationwide and locally.  The numbers have consistently been going in the right direction.  We realize that we are not out of the woods yet, even with the vaccination process starting.  However, we strongly feel that with all the precautions we have and will be taking we can re-open the church responsibly. 
 
The following is a review of our already established and new protocols:
 
  • Everyone’s temperature will be taken upon entering the building
  • Everyone will be required to wear masks/face coverings upon entering and while they are in the building
  • The exception will be the Worship Team while they are singing and Pastor while he is preaching  
  • We have removed the front row of seats in the sanctuary to allow even more distance between the team and congregants 
  • All touch points will continue to be removed e.g. pew bibles, bulletins and food
  • Sanitation stations are set up throughout the sanctuary, foyer and restroom areas
  • People are encouraged to abide by the 6 ft social distance recommendation at all times
  • Sanctuary chairs will continue to be spaced to meet the 6 ft recommendation
  • Discourage any hugging or hand shaking
 
As mentioned in a previous e-mail, we installed three iWave devices.  Two are in the sanctuary and one is in the foyer.  iWave is an air purifying device that is installed in the heating and air conditioning duct work.  They safely create positive and negative ions that actively purify the supply air, killing mold, bacteria and viruses in the coil and living space. The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke and static electricity.
 
After significant research we have made the decision to resume Children’s Ministry.  There will be an Infant/Toddler class through Kindergarten.  We will also have a class for children grades 1 through 5.  Youth Groups both Jr. & Sr will remain in the sanctuary throughout the service.  More details will be forthcoming on the set up of the classrooms, protocols and lesson plans. 
Click on MINISTRIES  and then YOUTH and CHILDREN to see the specific protocols implemented.
 
As always, it is up to each individual to make their own decision whether they feel comfortable returning to church.  We will continue to provide Pastor’s weekly Online sermons via our website newhope4you.net
 
We are looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, February 14th.
 
Be Blessed,
 
Pastor Ron & Chris
 
John 14:27 (NKJV)  "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
