UPDATE: Plan for Sunday, March 15th

Dear Wildwood Church family,

We will continue with both worship services this Sunday at 9:15 and 11am. The nursery, Kids and Students programs will proceed as usual.

Let me briefly  explain our church’s response to the coronavirus outbreak for this weekend. Hopefully this will help you prepare for church this Sunday, March 15th.

Our planning has been informed by two separate tensions. First, we want to keep people safe while avoiding a panic. Second, we want to obey the instructions of the mayor who has discouraged gatherings of more than 250 people while also obeying the biblical mandate not to avoid the assembling of ourselves together (Hebrews 10:25).

We will take extra precautions regarding all sanitary procedures, including limiting all personal contact. This includes propping open of doors (volunteers will handle doors), no shaking hands, no coffee station, no handing out of the Weekly or passing of the offering plate. Deacons will be available to receive your tithe or offering at the exits as you leave.

We encourage you to make your gift online via our Wildwood Church TLH app or wildwoodtlh.com/give, or by mail to 100 Ox Bottom Rd, Tallahassee, FL 32312.

This Sunday we are asking the following people to consider staying home and participate in worship online via our livestream (wildwoodtlh.com/live):

• Those age 65 and above.
• Those with a compromised immune system.
• Anyone who has demonstrated flu-like symptoms in the last two weeks.
• Anyone who feels uncomfortable in a large crowd at this time.

Following current policy, all programming, classes, and small groups are cancelled for Spring Break. However, if you have any needs that we can address, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Each week we will determine if we will gather for corporate worship.  Since Leon County Schools will be closed on the week of March 23-27, our office will be closed to the public. If you have an appointment with a staff member the week, that staff member will contact you regarding the meeting.  As of today, we plan to keep the office open this coming week, March 16 - 20, but all weekly activities are already canceled due to Spring Break.

This current outbreak is presenting our city, state, and nation with an extraordinary set of circumstances. But God also gives us an incredible command—to worship the resurrected Jesus Christ. In his kindness, we can do that together online and in spirit. I look forward to this Sunday as we sing together, pray together, and hear the Word preached together...even if we’re not all in the same room.

We will continue to keep you updated on social media, our website (wildwoodtlh.com/news), and through churchwide emails like this one as we make plans in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Trusting in Him,

David McNeely
Senior Pastor
