SERVICE AND SCHEDULE CHANGES


* Beginning Sunday, November 15th we will be gathering at reduced capacity and have two services available. We will have a Regular Worship Service at 9:30 am - 10:30 am and a second Regular Worship Service at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm and we will be continuing online Sunday services that will be live beginning at 11:00 am for those who are more comfortable joining us at home.  There are three ways for you to watch: www.charity.church/watch, Facebook Live, or through our YouTube Channel

*During our first service we ask that all families sit in a row marked with an Orange sticker only and during our second service we ask you sit in a row marked with a Green sticker only. This helps us maintain social distancing and to be more efficient at sanitizing the auditorium in between services. 

*Our Charity Kids ministry (PreK - 5th grade) will begin meeting in the area known as "The Porch" which is located in the brick building with stained glass windows during our second service only. Service will begin at 11:00 am. Check-in will be available in the Porch Foyer with our volunteers checking each family in and they will give you any further details that you may need. Safety precautions are in place and temps will be checked at check-in. We ask that if your child has any symptoms that you keep them at home. 

*Our Lil Acres Nursery (Birth - up to 3) will be open during both services with drop off and check in beginning 15 minutes prior to the service time. Our volunteer staff will be ready to assist getting your child checked in. Temps will be taken at check in along with other safety precautions. We ask that if your child has any symptoms that you please keep them at home. 

*What other safety precautions are we taking? All staff and volunteers will be temperature screened before entering, masks are available but not required, hand sanitizer stations are in the Foyer, doors are propped open for entry to building and auditorium, bathrooms are marked and monitored for social distancing, our greeting time has been removed from the services, and giving can be done online or by dropping off your offering in the giving boxes located inside the auditorium and by the auditorium entrance. 



*At this time there will be no evening activities or gatherings including Charity Kids, Wednesday night bible study, or Facility Reservations. As of now, our Charity Food Pantry will operate on a normal schedule with the drive through only option. Their schedule is subject to change and you will be updated if it does.



*Charity Students: Our students are meeting on Wednesday nights at 6:00 pm either in our main auditorium or outside to help maintain proper social distancing. Pastor Grant will update the MDWK gathering plans for your students should there be any changes  via social media. Be on the lookout on their social media outlets for those details and more! 



*We encourage small groups to gather together in person if you feel comfortable and within state recommended guidelines or for a virtual gathering online via Facetime, Zoom, Skype, or any of the many options that are offered. Sunday's message will have discussion questions to go along with the message that will be easily accessible to the small groups during this time.



*Many of our normal extra events have been canceled during this season. You can remain updated about schedules and changes via Pastor Marty's emails and social media. If you are not currently receiving email updates and need to sign up, please click here to send us your email address and contact information. 



* Here's a link to our online giving should you choose to try this giving option or continue using: https://www.charity.church/give. Should you choose to bring it by the church, you can bring it by the church office during normal business hours or you can drop it off in the secured and video monitored mailbox as it will be checked multiple times daily. If you are attending in person services during this time, we will have a giving time in the service during which you can place your offerings in one of the giving boxes. 



If you have questions, please feel free to message us via Facebook or call the church office at 704-938-7664. 



While our church family gatherings may look different for now, we are confident that God will see us through it! We hope that during this time we will all do our part of being the church to our friends, family, neighbors and community. The church isn't a building but a body, a body that Christ has mobilized to the world around us! Until then, we encourage you to stay connected via all of the ways we are doing our best to make available to you and your family! God has been using Charity in mighty ways and this isn't stopping Him or us!
