Covid-19

DOM: James Greer

As an Association, we encourage church leaders to give serious consideration to the following pro-active steps:

A. Follow the current health guidelines put in place by the Governor Abbott Executive OrderWhite House Coronavirus Task Force, the World Health Organization and the Center of Disease Control and Prevention. We believe they are working in our collective best interest.

B. Follow the current Governor Abbott Executive Order, and the White House Coronavirus Task Force recommendations on the size of group gatherings. Apply the 2nd Great Commandment to ‘love your neighbor’ as the standard for decisions. Protect the health of others.

C. Provide a way for your church members to give online Easytithe, Tithe.ly, Generosity, etc.

D. Use social media (Facebook, YouTube, etc.) to post your communications such as sermons, updates, etc.

E. Consider using Zoom, Go To Meetings, Skype, EZTalks, Adobe Connect, etc. as a platform to experience ‘live’ worship as a church.

F. Share the links & information from the webpage with your congregation as needed.

G. Do not rely on information that does not come from government and civil authority sources. For the best information go to official government and civil websites.

H. Update your church member information database.
