Guidelines for returning to church

Updated may 13, 2020

Dear Oak Street Family:

The Covid-19 virus has created a lot of opinions on what people should do and not do. Depending on hundreds of different factors, there are thousands of differing opinions. At Oak Street, we have tried to apply biblical wisdom, Christian citizenship, and community health and safety in deciding how to plan and conduct our services.

Our staff and elders have two criteria for making decisions. First, what is God’s will? Second, what is best for the church? Running the Covid -19 issue through that filter and given that there are no new cases in Young County, we want to update our suggested guidelines for worship attendance at Oak Street. We ask that all attendees follow these guidelines.

* No age restrictions in place.
Note: There will not be any nursery, preschool or kidz church provided.

* Please do not attend if you are “at risk” (see state government guidelines) or have symptoms of upper respiratory issues, please listen to our live worship service @ 9:30 am on KLBY (100.5 FM), our OSBC Face book page (, or our website, from your home.

* Use hand sanitizer at stations provided upon entering the church building. 

* Sit only with immediate family.

* Use only marked row of chairs.

* Have three chairs between non-family attendees.

* Observe social distancing (six feet separation).

* Refrain from handshakes, hugs, and other physical contact.

* Bring appropriate face mask (if desired) but understand face
masks are not mandatory for everyone in the service.

* Respect the health and welfare of all those who attend by using
common sense.

* In addition we will be cleaning and sanitizing the facilities before and following the service.

(Please check with your LIFEtime Leader for updates or changes in meeting.)


Obviously, you need to use your own judgment and decide what works best for you and others. Also, these guidelines may change as the state guidelines and situation changes.

Thank you for being flexible and understanding in these uncertain times. Your patience is appreciated and God is maturing us as we move forward together.

Your Friend and Pastor,

                                                                                      Pastor Joe
