Information on Update to “Safer At Home” Resolution Concerning Masks
In light of the recent updates to Governor Kay Ivey’s “Safer At Home” order, we are asking that our Church members and guests wear a mask as you attend our Sunday morning worship gathering and other smaller meetings as well. Once the worship time or other meeting has begun and appropriate social distancing has been observed, the mask may be removed if necessary. You may bring your own mask or use one of the disposable masks provided in in each of the foyers. Thank you for showing your concern for the heath of others as you help us in this way.

Stages for Regathering
     The ministry leadership at E.B.C. has been working diligently to put together a plan for regathering. In light of the recently updated health dept. recommendations, we have resumed gathering in the sanctuary for Sunday morning Worship Celebration at 10:30 AM.
     However, we realize that there are those who still have valid health concerns about gathering with a large group. If you are in the “vulnerable population” category and would feel more comfortable with a little extra distance, we recommend that you join us through our online service that will still be available on our church website: EBCINCHRIST.ORG.
