11-04-2020 EastPointe COVID-19 Update + IN.GOV STAGE 5 & Mask

November 4, 2020 EBC COVID-19 UPDATE:

As the Covid-19 virus statistics are on the rise there are a few factors we must contemplate in deciding how to proceed as a church body. Consider the symptoms that must be endured; sometimes the sickness is harsh and long-lasting, and in other cases, it is short-lived and many times even a-symptomatic. Next, think of the ripple effects of a quarantine without work and for some without pay even though they are not themselves infected. Recently, these have hit a little closer to home and have impacted so many of our families in some way or another.  
Our Children’s Ministries’ routine operation has now also been affected. Several of our families and individuals that faithfully serve are quarantining or have chosen to stay home for safety’s sake. So out of an abundance of love for everyone and to relieve any pressure to serve in fear, we have decided to cancel all children’s and adult ministries held at the EastPointe campus except for Sunday Worship at 10:30 a.m. and Thursday Prayer & Bible Study at 6:30 p.m. through the end of November. Flock and other small groups may continue to meet if desired, as long as they adhere to the guidance from the State of Indiana. We are also considering a return to virtual worship only, if and when circumstances make such a decision prudent. 
We will re-evaluate the situation at the end of November and update everyone as needed. Without debating the effectiveness of wearing masks, we STRONGLY encourage everyone to use them and to maintain 6’ of distance whenever not doing so. Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to the longevity of the ministry of EastPointe Bible Church. May God grant that we faithfully lead many more in Learning,
Loving & Living Christ until He returns.” The EastPointe Bible Church Elders
