COVID-19 - News & Updates
We are so happy to be meeting again back inside the church!
We've been taking things slow to ensure everyone's safety. After careful deliberation, the SPUMC Leadership Team made the decision on June 7 that face masks are now optional while at the church. This goes along with our Bishop's and CDC recommendations, but if you prefer to wear one, there will be a safe zone during worship where you can sit with others that choose to continue wearing masks.
During the month of July, Sunday worship will begin at 10:00am instread of 11:00.
Services will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube.
What You Need to Know...
Online Sunday Worship
We will still be livestreaming worship on Sunday mornings using Facebook and YouTube. It will also be streaming on our website. Click here to access that page.
If you aren’t able to watch live, you can access the archived video later on either Facebook or YouTube.
You can also watch the service via YouTube on your smart TV.
If you have any questions about accessing Facebook or YouTube pages, please let Pastor Denise or Beth know, and we will do our best to walk you through it.
This summer, Denise is offering Online Prayer via Facebook and YouTube on Tuesday mornings at 8:00am. These videos will be archived and available to watch later.
For the time being, the staff of SPUMC will continue to work remotely as much as possible. You can reach the office by email or through phone calls. We will be checking the church’s voicemail regularly during this time.
The church office will be open on Wednesdays from 8:00am-1:00pm.
Now that we’re back in the building, you can give to the church by dropping off your donation in the offering plates by the door when you enter or leave the sanctuary. You can also use the following ways to financially support the church if you choose to wait to attend in-person services:
- Drop off your gifts at the church (in the mailbox by the office door) or send them through the mail (PO Box 639, Summerfield, NC 27358).
- Use your bank’s online Bill Payment system to set up “payments” to the church…this is completely free to you and the church and is deducted directly from your account and sent to the church.
- Online/electronic giving – to set up, click here. Contact the church office with any questions.
The Sonshine Room will continue to open as drive-thru service in order to keep everyone safe and healthy – those we assist in the Sonshine Room, as well as our volunteers.
We will be doing a drive thru only distribution of our normal boxes of food and supplies. We will ask folks to remain in their cars, and we’ll bring the boxes to them. We also won’t be filling out the normal registration forms for each family. This will allow us to limit our interaction, as well as keep as much of a physical distance as possible.
The Sonshine Room is open on the last Tuesday of each month from 1:30-3:00pm.
