Coronavirus Official Statement

Hello brothers and sisters of Midwest church of Christ.

In light of the current situation concerning the Coronavirus, we felt it necessary to address our Midwest family. There has been much conversation in regards to the reopening of many public venues, businesses, and houses of worship. We want you all to be made aware that our Sunday corporate worship gatherings will carry on as scheduled at the Midwest church. We will maintain all safety measures provided to states by the National Center for Disease Control (.CDC), to include:

 sit six feet from each over, making our Sanctuary seating capacity fifty-one members. There is additional seating in the Family Life Center,

 All persons will be required to wear face covering and gloves. Those who do not have face coverings, the Church will provide these for you.

 All areas (Sanctuary, rest rooms, doorknobs and railings),

 There will be Sanitation Stations at both entrance (face covering, gloves, temperature and other apparent symptoms such as excessive cough, runny nose, etc.) will be checked and all attendees must go through the Sanitation Stations before entering the Worship areas.

Additionally, both our in-person Sunday and Wednesday bible studies will be suspended until further notice. In lieu of our in person bile study services, we will host live virtual bible study and prayer service via our www.facebook.om/midwestcoc​ at 6:50 p.m. every Wednesday night.

All members are still asked to utilize their best judgement for attendance. Members that have compromised immune systems, exhibit any flu-like systems, senior members (60 and up), or individuals with any other health challenges are encouraged to take advantage of our online streaming services at www.facebook.com/midwestcoc. You also have the opportunity to utilize our online giving platform via our website www.midwestchurchofchrist.org. Members will have the opportunity to pick up communion packets or drop off offerings at the church building. We know that the country is facing uncertainty, but we have certainty that we can depend on Jesus the Christ. Updates will be given to you all as information is given to us. Psalms 126:1-2 “When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.”God Bless,
