An Announcement from Fr. Ray Bagby

For the foreseeable future, all people who want to attend worship in person must make a reservation each Sunday. This is necessary to ensure that we can safely seat everyone who comes during the pandemic.

To make a reservation, please email the names of the persons in your household who will attend to Ray Bagby, or call or text to (254) 717-5540 with the same information. Reservations will close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday (10/30/2020). If seats are available, you will receive a confirmation via the medium you used to reserve. Actual seat assignments will be shown on a whiteboard in the Narthex when you arrive on Sunday. Please do not come without a confirmed reservation.

By reserving and by attending, you are affirming that to the best of your knowledge you have not experienced COVID-19 symptoms, nor have you been exposed to someone who has within the past 14 days. Obviously, if you are ill on Sunday, please do not come.

Also, please remember:

  • To wear a mask or face covering at all times
  • To observe social distancing
  • To enter the church by one of the side doors to the Narthex, but not before 10:15 a.m.
  • To bring your own BCP - and order of service and readings (if you want them)

Thank you for your patience during this pandemic and for following the safety guidelines.
