PHASE 2 UPDATE - MASKS REQUIRED

UPDATE: JULY 9, 2020

Good afternoon CLC family!

I pray you are all doing well and rejoicing in the day that the Lord has made!

As you may have heard, Missoula County – City Health Board passed an ordinance today, Thursday July 9, making it mandatory for everyone to wear a mask while inside a public venue.  This means effective immediately, in compliance with the ordinance, Christian Life Center will require a mask be worn by everyone who attends our worship services or visits our facility.  One of our main priorities is the health and safety of our church family.  We also want to continue to honor our government authorities as the Bible instructs us to “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority; whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors who are sent by him….” 1st Peter 2:13-14a

When you enter the church there will be masks available for those who may not have any -masks will be required for those 12 and older.  We will continue to have our Sunday services at 8:30am and 10:30am as well as our Wednesday night prayer meetings in person and online at missoulachurch.tv.  Kids programs will continue to be available for both Sunday services as well as nursery on Wednesday nights. Our youth ministry will continue to meet on Sunday’s at 3pm.

We are so thankful that we are able to continue to gather and meet together in unity to worship our Lord Jesus Christ.   I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

Blessings!

Pastor Matt

PHASE 2 PROTOCOLS

Greetings Church Family,

Earlier this year, due to COVID 19, we began having services online instead of in person. Although it was not ideal, the Lord was faithful to meet us in our homes week after week! In April, the Governor announced that the state of Montana was going into its first phase of reopening which included allowing churches to gather corporately as long as we were in compliance with the social distancing guidelines. We were able to open the doors to our congregation and the Lord has continued to meet us in a special way both in our homes and in our corporate gatherings. On Tuesday, May 26, the Governor announced that Montana starting on June 1st, would be entering into Phase 2, thus allowing us as well to enter into the next phase of our church reopening. We will continue to honor our government and authorities and comply with the gathering guidelines as your health and safety is of utmost importance to us.

That being said, CLC will go enter into Phase 2 on Sunday June 7, 2020.

During Phase 2, there are some things that will remain the same – such as:

  • We will continue to keep our seats as is – spaced out and encouraging people to keep a distance in between them. Our sanctuary seating will maintain at 50% capacity.
  • We will continue to encourage anyone that is in the CDC’s defined high risk category to continue to participate in our online services.

In Phase 2 – we also have some exciting additions:

  • We will have 2 blended Sunday services: 8:30am and 10:30am. For more information on this please view Pastor Matt’s sermon from May 24th titled, “Breaking Bread: Our Community.”
  • Children’s Ministry (Infant to fifth grade) will be available during both services.

During the summer, we will have a special summer schedule for the Next Generation Ministry:

  • CLC Youth will have “Sundays in the Summer”. There will be fun and exciting events throughout the City of Missoula at 3:00pm on Sunday afternoons.
  • Summer Kids Wednesday Nights: Nursery for 5 and under ONLY.

Thank you all for your flexibility, love, and commitment to the Lord and what He is doing at CLC during these unique times.

Blessings to you!

Pastor Matt Reneau
