LHBC Safety Protocols
Although we are back together, in person, we need to continue to exercise prudence in maintaining safety for all of the members of our church family. We therefore ask that everyone wear a mask while inside our church and that everyone use the sanitizer supplied in our dispensers located on the walls of our vestibule as you enter the sanctuary. We also are giving you the option of signing in each Sunday, on our back table, so that we can notify you in the event that someone would become infected. Thank you so much for your understanding and patience!
Church Worship Protocol - Upon entering the sanctuary, it is vital we recognize the sacred nature and respect we must show the Lord. For this reason we want to remind everyone of the need to avoid disruptive talking or the unnecessary leaving and reentering of our sanctuary. We also want to discourage anyone from entering the sanctuary with food or drink other then water. We want to emphasize these things so that we can eliminate any distractions and maintain a strong testimony to those joining us on our live streaming service, as well as honor the Lord Jesus Christ. We truly appreciate your cooperation in helping to make our worship services a pleasant experience that pleases the Lord.
Church Giving - Please visit our website if you want to use our convenient ‘on-line giving app’. It’s available at: www.lhbcpa.org. Under ‘HANDY INFO’, find the link ‘DONATE TO LIVING HOPE’. This link will take you to our safe, secure giving page. Directions are provided and are very easy to follow. Thank you for your faithfulness!
