Coronavirus Update

Greetings MeadowRidge Family and Friends,

After prayer and discussion, the leadership of MeadowRidge Baptist Church is inviting the congregation to return for worship services only, beginning Sunday, June 7, 2020 at 10:45 AM.  As of Thursday, May 28, 2020 Governor Pritzker has lifted all restrictions on churches. There are no longer mandates or restrictions prohibiting churches from holding in-person worship services of any size.  

Though we are free to meet, we plan on reopening slowly and with precautions. We care about your health and understand that we are still dealing with an infectious disease. We will reopen with some precautions recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, specifically:

  • No nursery or childcare
  • Individually prepackaged communion, when observed
  • Face masks – Bring your own (Limited supply available for those in need)
  • Retiring offering, no plate-passing, use baskets at the back door.
  • No handshakes or hugs, maintain social distancing
  • Hand sanitizer – Bring your own (Limited supply available in strategic locations)
  • Individuals or families will sit at least six feet apart
  • Doors will be held or propped open
  • We urge anyone who is sick to stay home. If a member of your household has symptoms of the virus, please stay home.
  • If you are in the most vulnerable categories, consider staying home.

We trust that you will take personal responsibility for your health and safety before, during, and after church gatherings. We want to respect the fact that people have differing views on this topic. If you are more cautious, please do not judge those who seem unconcerned. If you are less concerned, please respect those that are more concerned by not invading their space. Those who do attend should not look down upon those who do not attend for health reasons. May we practice the Golden Rule and strive to love one another through this challenging time.

For those who are not able to attend we will continue to live stream the service on Facebook. Also, you can go to the Media Page on the church website and find current and prerecorded videos there. We encourage you to stay connected with the church as best you can!
