COVID-19 Updates- Phase 1 Reopening

On June 7, 2020 our church will begin Phase 1 of its reopening.  We are so excited to be able to invite others to once again join us for live worship.  Services will continue to be live-streamed to both the website and Facebook live, but for those wishing to attend in person, please view the video below which explains all of the safety protocols and parameters of our first phase of reopening.  If you continue have any questions, please feel free to contact the church office or church staff.  


Phase 1 Reopening- June 7th (Survey Below)

The Church Board has voted to begin Phase 1 of reopening beginning June 7th.  To ensure the health and safety of all members, the church board has voted on the following procedures and parameters:

*Temperature checks will be done for all persons before entry (These temperature checks will be done with temperature guns while parishioners are still in their cars). This gives everyone an assurance as they come into worship that we have screened for those who may be symptomatic.

*The Church Board feels that masks are essential to the health and safety of our most vulnerable members.  Therefore, masks will be required of all staff and volunteers.  It is also highly recommended that everyone else wear a mask during service.  You are welcome to bring your own mask for home, but if you do not have one, the church will provide one for you.  We understand that masks may not necessarily fully protect the individual wearing the mask.  But, please understand that is not why we, the board, ask you to wear them.  Masks help to protect others.  We are a family and community who loves and protects each other.  One of the ways we express that love and protection is to each wear a mask- thereby ensuring that none of us contribute to the spread of COVID-19.  As you know, individuals who have COVID-19 can be non-symptomatic, and yet still be very contagious to others.  Each of us wearing a mask helps to greatly mitigate the risk so that all people are able to worship with us.

*In accordance with the Texas guidelines, the sanctuary seats will be redistributed to allow for a minimum of 6 feet between individuals and/or different family groups.  Seating will also be limited to 25% of our sanctuary capacity (sanctuary capacity is 500).

*In order to help maintain social distancing for all members, we are electing to not congregate in the church foyer.  Instead, parishioners are asked to fellowship outside the building (still maintaining the appropriate social distance).

*There will be new procedures for coming into and out of the church building.   Families will be ushered in to selected seats.  And, after the service, families will be dismissed by rows. These procedures will help to minimize large groups clustering and inadvertently breaking social distancing guidelines.

*For the month of June, there will be no nursery and no preschool or elementary children’s services.  

*At this time, all Sunday school classes will continue to meet by Zoom.  We will not be hosting in-house Sunday school classes.

*The services may be shortened to keep congregational worship to only around 1 hour of exposure.  

Please, fill out the survey below so we can begin planning for the number of people we will need to prepare for in our reopening.

Who We Are.

Our faith is in our Lord Jesus Christ, who has saved us from our sins. We believe Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried,

but then was raised on the third day. Because of Christ’s resurrection, we now have a hope

and future and our lives are lived in such as way as to reflect His life and to bring God glory. 

Here at Arlington First Church, we believe strongly that the church is to be a Community of Believers united in love. 

We know we are all flawed and imperfect, but together we strive to grow closer to God, and to grow in our faith and obedience to our Father. 

We believe that we need each other. We are here to walk the journey of our faith together, truly being the hands and feet of Christ as we celebrate with our brothers and sisters in their victories, and cry when our brothers and sisters mourn. 

We believe in living a life of Holiness (being in right relationship with God through a life of purity and in right relationship with

each other through a life of love). We believe that God's call on our lives is to reflect His love

to a broken world, loving others as we ourselves are loved by Christ. 

Christ came for the sick and needy, and in turn, he has called us to minister to the needs of our brother. 

We believe that we come to understand Christ’s love for us more deeply, as we express His love to those around us.
