Sower Church COVID-19 Guidelines (Updated April 2021)

Sower Church COVID-19 Guidelines (Updated April 2021)

After communicating with city leaders and other Lincoln area churches, Sower Church opened its doors again on Sunday, June 21st, with a two-service format to accommodate social distancing for our facility’s seating capacity.

Our first service begins at 9 am, and our second service starts at 10:30 am every Sunday. Our production team also continues to produce a weekly live stream that airs at 10:30 AM on YouTube if you prefer to join us online. Our services last approximately an hour. No RSVP is needed to attend our services. Live video feeds will be available in our multi-purpose room, nursery, and extended lobby area as well.

We’re committed to creating an environment that meets Nebraska’s Directive Health Measures (DHM) recommendations and allows us to safely worship together. 

Masks

9 AM Service: Masks (cloth masks/face coverings) are required for everyone 5-years-old and older for our 9 AM service. Please wear your masks for the duration of the service.

10:30 AM Service: Masks are left to the discretion of the attendees. That is, we allow people the option to wear one or not.

Sunday School

Sunday School is available for ages 4-12 during both of our services and meets upstairs in the middle classroom right after announcements. Parents are asked to check in their kids via our iPad station before each service to get their name tags.

For kids attending at 9 am, masks are required for the duration of Sunday School. For kids attending at 10:30 am, masks are to be work to the classroom, but kids may remove them once they’re seated, if they choose to. We will continue to post Sunday School lessons to our Sower Children’s Ministry Facebook page as well.

Nursery

The nursery is now open for children ages 0-3 years old. One room is reserved just for 9 AM and a second one available for 10:30 AM. Volunteers wear masks to protect children.

Coffee

We have resumed serving coffee. Our hospitality team members will serve you a cup of coffee upon request. Coffee is available before each service.

Not Feeling Good?

Please stay home when you are feeling sick (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle pain, chills), or if you have been exposed to a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19; exercise discernment. Join us online instead.

Hope and encouragement

We realize that for some, these measures may seem unnecessary. Others will think we aren’t doing enough. Most of us will experience a transition time that feels dishearteningly long. Wherever you are at with it all, Christ has the resources you need to find peace and patience for this time.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. -John 14:27

Though our church has entered a new normal until further notice, we are excited to gather and see all of you again each week. However, no one should feel obligated to attend Sunday services if they do not feel comfortable doing so. We want everyone to take the precautions they feel are necessary for themselves and their family.

Continue to pray for our community and all people, specifically for those who have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are very thankful that our great source of peace and hope is Jesus Christ.
