SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS

DID YOU KNOW?

Just before reopening our doors for worship (Back in May) we had our entire building treated which included all the pews, chairs, surfaces and ventilation. The professionals at Microbe Free used atomized sprayers, the first spray is our Hypergreen™ “kill”, Fresh Start, which eliminates 99.9% of all microbes. Next, they sprayed an Xmicrobe Antimicrobial which forms a long lasting polymer that is firmly bonded to the microscopic pores of any hard or soft surface to form a clear protective shield that lasts for the useful life of the surface. Their Fresh Start chemistry renders Coronavirus (COVID-19) Inactive with 99.9% effectiveness. 


  • EPA registered and approved for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. 
  • On CDC's Emerging Pathogen list.
  • Does not release harmful chemicals into the earth, air, or ozone, making this product environmentally green.
  • Even safe for food prep surfaces.


Indoor Worship Guidelines

We hope you join us for worship. At this time, we will not require sign-ups.  Please note that we continue to maintain health guidelines and recommendations for indoor worship (ie. Masks and Distancing).  For those who are not ready to worship in person at this time, we will continue to livestream our 9:30 am worship service. Whether in person or online, we praise God for the opportunity to worship together! 


We are pleased to announce that the entire church building has recently been disinfected and treated for long lasting results. For added confidence, we will be disinfecting the Sanctuary and Entryway between services. Also, hand sanitizing stations will be available. Due to the process of cleaning the church between services, we ask that you not enter the building earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of the service. Also, as we anticipate seeing old friends and catching up with our church family, we encourage conversations to take place outside.  

There may be a few things you’re wondering about regarding our reopening. Masks are required, however, we do understand medical condition concerns. Each household will be allowed to sit together, but households are required to maintain social distancing of 6-feet from others. To assist with social distancing, the offering plate will not be passed, but instead offering boxes will remain near the back of the Sanctuary.


You might also be interested in some of the additional changes that will be in place as you return. Because of our desire to limit the possible spread of Covid, there will be no refreshments (coffee and donuts) at this time, nor will there be nursery services or Busy Bags available. Additionally, hearing assisted devices will not be provided by the church. We encourage you to bring your own Bible to worship, as there will be no pew Bibles available.


Thank you for continuing to pray for our church and each other as we continue to move forward winning and growing people for Christ together. 


God's Peace,

Pastor Aaron
