COVID-19 Response (November 2020 Update)

Church Family,
We are grateful for your understanding, patience, and cooperation as we work hard to balance reopening the various ministries of PHBC while striving to keep PHBC a healthy and safe place to worship. As you well know, the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase in our community. Our leadership continues to actively and prayerfully monitor this situation, including notices from our governor as well as state and local health boards. We praise God for a healthy and successful launch for our Parma Heights Christian Academy and Sonshine Preschool. We’re grateful that we have been able to reopen our campus for in-person Worship Services, Growth Groups, Young Adult Ministry, Youth Ministry, Children’s Ministry, and much more. Admittedly, our gatherings have undergone necessary changes. We recognize not everyone is ready or able to meet in person, which is why we are also committed to continuing our weekly Online Worship Services at www.youtube.com/phbcmedia.
    
We will continue to provide updated information if things change. Below is a summary of how we are working to keep PHBC safe, and how you can help. If there is a need in your life – COVID-19 related or otherwise – that you believe we can help with, please contact our church office.
    
I am regularly encouraged by PHBC’s resilience, commitment to Jesus, and continued giving to the ministry of PHBC. Thank you for helping us pursue our mission of Helping People Find and Follow Jesus Christ during this most unusual year.
    

Prayerfully,

Pastor Dan Adams

 

For Your Safety, PHBC is:

  • Sanitizing the building, worship spaces, and group spaces, prior to and after each use with a COVID-19 proven sanitizer.
  • Sanitizing public spaces and touchpoints throughout the hallways, bathrooms, and entryways throughout worship times.
  • Providing hand sanitizing stations throughout the building.
  • Providing sermon notes on the YouVersion Bible App.
  • In the case of a known positive COVID-19 case, notifying individuals who may have had direct contact with that individual through a ministry of PHBC.

 

We Ask That Everyone:

  • Monitor your health, and stay home if you are experiencing flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms, and join us for worship online.
  • Wear face coverings for the duration of your time in the building, including: worship services, groups, and traversing hallways.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands regularly.
  • Maintain a 6’ distance from those not in your immediate household throughout the building. Individuals and family groups should sit in designated spaces, 6’ apart in all services and groups.
  • Limit congregating in close quarters throughout the hallways.
