COVID19 Continues to Shape Our Plans
After some progress toward returning to normal, our city and state has regressed in controlling Covid 19. For us at HBC, we're in a holding pattern.
Attendance in person is welcome, with conditions:
- Please register to attend either service. This is to assure we don't exceed our seating capacity with social distancing. Click “register” on this site.
- Masks are required as you enter, as you leave, and while we sing. We got approval from the mayor's office to continue with this procedure even after the city-wide mask-in-public-places order was issued.
- There must be three empty seats between households of people in the service.
- We would love to have you volunteer to help with ushering (before service) and/or sanitizing (after service). It takes extra manpower these days. Either task requires only about 20 minutes of your time, and is light work
- Our 10:45 service is also delivered via livestream. Click “live” on this site.
Other things we are doing to minister as effectively as possible through these unprecedented days:
- We send a daily email with church news, interesting links, and a brief study in God's word. If you want to be added to the distribution list, please send your request to email@example.com.
- We have plans ready to roll out for phased return of Children's Church, when Idaho and Boise have completed Stage 4 of the governor's re-opening plan.
- Studies for parents to lead children are available from Dirk Wageman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We're researching the feasibility of limited outdoor seating for the 10:45 services. Check daily emails for updates.
- We're working toward a safe way to celebrate communion for those who are able to attend in person. Check daily emails for updates.
- Our Elders and Deacons have a gift for you. It's the two DVD set of American Gospel: Christ Alone and American Gospel: Christ Crucified. If you haven't been to church yet, your set should arrive in the mail by the end of July.
- Our Elders and Deacons are doing their best to maintain weekly contact with the flock. If you have a need and haven't been contacted, please let us know at email@example.com.
- Offerings are being received by way of the offering box at church, by mail to Heritage Bible Church, 7071 W. Emerald St., Boise, ID 83704, or online. Click the “Give” tab on this site.
Please continue to pray for one another, reach out to your friends and neighbors, and share the Gospel with needy souls. If you know of a need not being addressed, please let us know by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you in person soon!
In His Service,
