May 13th Update

(COVID-19)

Hey there Lifers!  We have some news to share with everyone.

 

The staff, after much thought and prayer, after hearing from several of you, and by our Governor’s latest order, believe it’s time to make Community Worship available to those of you who feel comfortable in doing so.  Starting this Sunday, May 17th,  we will again offer two services for you to attend, either in person, or live stream from the comfort of your home.   

 

So, what does that look like for Living Life Church? 

  • We will be offering two services.  9:30 and 11:00 a.m.

  • We will offer Live Streaming for those who choose to stay home.

  • If you are sick in anyway, please stay home and stay safe.

  • We have spaced the chairs to allow for CDC guidelines for Social Distancing.

  • We ask that you sit with your family.

  • We will provide hand sanitizer at several locations throughout the building

  • We will only have coffee and cappuccino available before the service  (No Donuts)

  • If you want to wear a mask please do so.  If you don’t have one we will supply one for you at the door.

  • We will have available, for those who do not wish to be hugged, a “I Can’t Be Hugged YET” tag to wear. 

  •  We WILL NOT be offering any kind of child care for several weeks.

 

We understand that there’s a lot of information out there from both sides of this Covid-19 Virus.  We are not here to debate the issue as to who’s right or wrong.  Our responsibility is to do what’s best for Living Life Church.  If you choose to stay home, we respect that decision. If you choose to join us in person, we respect that decision as well.  We ask that you do what you feel is safe for you and your family. 

 

We do ask that you pray for your staff though.  These are uncharted waters for us and we don’t have the answers.  We are seeking God on a daily basis to do the right thing.  One thing we do know for sure is that this is an huge opportunity for the church to stand up and shout it Loud that Jesus Christ is the answer to our fears.   

 

 

Legal Notice

Thursday, May 7th 2020   

Governor Gretchen Whitmer said her executive order exempted churches, synagogues, mosques and places of religious worship as well the individuals participating in services.   And to quote David Kallman, a lawyer with Great Lakes Justice Center, “Churches are essential to the health and well-being of everyone.”

 

"Consistent with prior guidance, neither a place of religious worship nor its owner is subject to penalty under section 20 of this order for allowing religious worship at such place," the executive order said. "No individual is subject to penalty under section 20 of this order for engaging in or traveling to engage in religious worship at a place of religious worship, or for violating section 15(a) of this order."
