Assembly Update

Eastside continues at “condition one” with the following updates:

Sunday:

We will assemble at 2:00 pm using our current outdoor/streamed arrangement with an additional option. We have limited space inside the building for those who would like to be present together at the building for our assembly, but our other 3 options don't fit their current needs.

  • You will need to let us know in advance so we can provide an appropriate seating plan.
  • We are asking all present to wear an effective face covering for the entirety of their time inside.
  • If for some reason there is a health or personal reason preventing your ability to follow this guidance, please speak to the Elders directly.

Wednesday:

As of November 4th, we have added a midweek in-person bible study at the building for those who are both low risk and willing to follow a very strict protocol while continuing to provide the same material online simultaneously.

  • Roy (678) 876-1860 is providing a seating & traffic plan that will allow us to effectively social distance.
  • Gary (678) 876-1482 is coordinating our participation plans, if you need to make changes please contact Gary and let him know.
  • Joe (470) 215-9826 is providing a safety plan and the requisite materials to ensure a safe assembly.
  • You will need to let us know in advance so we can provide an appropriate seating plan.
  • We are asking all present to wear an effective face covering for the entirety of the study.
  • If for some reason there is a health or personal reason preventing your ability to follow this guidance, please speak to the Elders directly.
  • The ones directly addressing the class will be unmasked while speaking so they can be understood in person and in the live stream.
  • We ask that all consider their brethren ahead of themselves in this. (Philippians 2.3)

General Assembly Information:

In the event of inclement weather, all three options will continue, you are more than welcome to bring your own covers to keep the rain at bay. If you choose to do this, please allow sufficient time to do so.

We will continue to assemble primarily outside. We believe this is the best option to balance our spiritual needs in light of the uncommon days we live in. We would love for everyone to be part of these assemblies. The restrooms are open for emergency use, and we will continue to meet at 2:00 PM to ease the temperatures as we honor God.

We will now have 4 options will continue to be offered, we would love to see everyone at the in-person assemblies.

  1. In your home via the FB page & bit.ly/LiveBibleStudies
  2. In your car
  3. In your folding chair
  4. In the building via Closed Circut Video

Please make arrangements to provide your own Supper Elements (if you have questions, contact Gary Oldenkamp)

For Our 2:00 PM Sunday Service:

The songs all come from Hymns for Worship Revised, or you can use the attached song sheet.

The building & restrooms are open for emergency use.
