The Krum Church of Christ Welcomes You!
The Krum Church of Christ is a group of people dedicated to learning and doing the will of Christ as He has made it known in His New Testament. We are not perfect and we don't know everything. We all recognize that we are sinners in need of the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ.
On Sunday, May 17, we began meeting together again after an eight Sunday interruption due to the coronavirus. These Sunday 10:30 A.M. worship services will continue. We want to express our appreciation for the caring and loving consideration that has been shown for each of your brothers and sisters.
For safety, the following are specific ways that these Sunday gatherings will be conducted:
1. For now, we will only meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30 A.M. for worship. All other services and fellowships are canceled until further notice.
2. Because of their increased susceptibility to Covid-19 the CDC has recommended those over 65 and those with underlying health issues should consider not attending services at this time.
3. For the health and well-being of all, individuals should remain home if:
a. You have had a fever of 100°F or higher in the past 2 days;
b. You have a cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell, or other symptoms typical of Covid-19;
c. You have had known exposure to someone with Covid-19 in the past 14 days.
4. On Sunday mornings, the building will open at 10:00 A.M. All “meet and greet” should take place outside the building before and after services. Please keep a proper distance from others when inside the building. Please keep a proper distance when visiting with others outside the building.
5. Enter only through the front door, where we hope to use an infrared thermometer device to check temperatures upon entering the building
6. Masks or face coverings have been shown to be one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of the virus. Please be considerate of other members and visitors by wearing face masks as you enter and exit building. Masks should be worn during the service, but removed while partaking of the Lord Supper or leading worship. Masks are available for those who do not have one.
7. We have individual communion containers on the tables at the back of the auditorium. Individuals should pick up needed communion containers for their family upon entering the auditorium. At the proper time, communion will be taken together.
8. Collection boxes for contribution are on the tables at the back of the auditorium. Individuals are asked to place their contribution in a box upon entering or leaving the auditorium.
9. Everyone is asked to maintain 6-foot physical distancing practices while seated. Family groups can sit together, but there should be at least 6 feet between each family group. Pews are taped off to help us maintain proper distancing.
10. Please refrain from any physical contact (i.e. handshaking or embracing) with each other outside of family groups.
11. We will continue to prepare a weekly bulletin, send it out via Sunday email, and have it available on Sunday mornings at the building. Please continue to communicate any Bulletin Prayer List additions and updates to Bill Mayes.
12. We will continue to provide YouTube videos of a sermon message and Bible study made available via email links and the Krum church of Christ Facebook page every Sunday. We hope to live stream Sunday services in the future.
We ask for your continued prayers, cooperation, patience, and suggestions as we move forward with hope and caution. Please contact us if you have any questions or wish further clarification concerning anything.
The churches of the New Testament were locally organized with elders and deacons. The only ties to other congregations were those of concern and common cause. We follow that organization.
The New Testament promised admission to the Lord's church (which included forgiveness of sins) to all people of every race, nationality, and economic status on the condition that they believe in Jesus as the Christ (confessing Him), turn away from sin, and be baptized into Him.
We Preach the Gospel:
We gladly welcome all who have obeyed the gospel and who wish to be members here. Furthermore, we are eager to study the Bible with anyone who is interested, with the hope that he or she may also decide to obey the gospel of Christ.
In the New Testament, members of the church were expected to be faithful in assembling to stimulate and encourage each other as they engaged in songs, praying, Bible teaching, giving, and partaking of the Lord's Supper. We strive to be that faithful.
The New Testament teaches that Jesus Christ is the standard of right and wrong and should be imitated in all things. We urge that holy living.
