Whether you join us in the sanctuary or worship from home, we are united in Spirit as one body. As we interact with one another, our aim is love for one another and our community. We will keep this page updated with any changes to our protocols. We look forward to seeing you Sunday!
We encourage everyone to follow state and local guidelines. Click HERE to see Dallas County's current COVID risk level and recommendations.
We will continue to come forward for communion, and prepackaged elements are available for those who prefer that option. The TFC board and staff will continue to prayerfully watch the situation and will update our procedures as needed in light of state and local guidelines and the needs of our church family.
While opinions on these issues vary widely, let us remember that Christians are called to a high standard of elevating the needs of others before our own preferences and comfort (Rom 12:10; 1 Cor 12:25; Phil 2:3-4). We are so grateful for the ways our body continues to care for one another in the grace and love of Christ.
How are we serving families with young children in the service?
Our nursery is open, as well as the Meadow for age-appropriate learning and activities during the sermon. For more information see our Kids page. Kids are also welcome to stay with their parents during worship. If at any point our families feel the need, they may move into the Fellowship Hall where tables are spaced for distancing. Live video of the service is provided. Parents may supervise their children on the playground before and after the service, entering and exiting only through the outside gate.
How are we handling passing things like communion, bulletins, and the offering plate?
At this time we are still observing Communion from our seats, using prepackaged elements (available in the foyer). Our printed bulletin (along with guest/prayer request forms) has moved to our website HERE. Offering plates are available in the foyer and online giving remains an ongoing option.
What about door handles and other surfaces?
Our janitorial crew thoroughly cleans the building each Saturday evening with CDC approved disinfectants. Hand sanitizing stations are available upon entering either the Buckingham main entrance or the Greenville east entrance.
What else is different about the service?
Our service order of worship has not changed during COVID-19. The main service elements will continue: the Call to Worship, the Word, the Table, and the Benediction. Special elements like Transformation Stories and Birthday/Anniversary prayers continue as well.
