Stay up to date with everything Lakeview is doing in response to the coronavirus.
In addition to updates regarding worship & fellowship, we are providing information in an effort to better understand COVID-19. We will continue to update this page frequently as we have more information to share.
Currently, all in-person gatherings are suspended until further notice
Bishop & Cabinet Request Continuation of Suspension of In-Person Worship until at least June 1 and Preparations for Reopening our Church Buildings
When Lakeview reopens, we will continue to be guided by directives from our federal, state and local government officials, and by the recommendations of health care professionals in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.
In the meantime there is much to do in preparing for reopening our church. The North Alabama Conference has developed a document entitled “Do No Harm: Recommendations for Reopening Our Church Buildings” to assist local church leaders in decisions about when and how to reopen after the suspension expires. This resource emphasizes the importance of context in determining the specific date for a congregation to reopen. Factors to consider include the congregation’s: 1) demographics, 2) location (how many COVID-19 cases are in its county?), 3) size and 4) capacity to follow CDC standards about sanitation and social distancing. The document also includes guidelines for reopening in a safe way.
We invite everyone at Lakeview to review the “Do Not Harm” document and to view the video featuring Dr. Neil Lamb – faculty investigator and Vice President for Educational Outreach at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology – as he explains the ‘why’ behind the recommendations.
