Spiritual Life Center Reopening Update
June 16, 2020
Dear SLC Family and Friends,
WE MISS YOU! We are sending this letter to keep you informed of our plans to reopen Spiritual Life Center (SLC). Our intention is to reopen SLC in 3 phases to assure that the well-being of the community is served. Phase 1 will begin June 14th. Phase 2 and 3 start dates are dependent on SLC’s ability to meet federal and state guidelines.
PHASE 1: Live Stream Sunday Services from Sanctuary with No Congregation. (June 14th) Phase 1 allows needed staff, musicians, AV team, and volunteers to live stream Sunday services in the sanctuary. All involved will follow the Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and California Department of Public Health (CAPH) guidelines including, but not limited to, wearing of face masks, physical distancing and no touch temperature checks.
PHASE 2: Limited Reopening for Staff and Small Groups. (Target Date: Late June/July) Phase 2 allows SLC to reopen during the week for limited purposes such as staff meetings, scheduled appointments, and small group meetings that are currently being conducted by Zoom or conference call. Physically meeting at SLC will remain optional. Staff and small groups may choose to continue to meet, or work, remotely if so desired. We are in the process of surveying small group leaders to find out their intentions for meeting once SLC is ready and able to reopen for small group gatherings.
PHASE 3: Reopen SLC Sunday and Wednesday Services to the Public. (Target Date TBD) According to the church reopening guidelines released on Monday, May 26th by Governor Newsom, Phase 3 requires approval from the California Department of Public Health and Sacramento County. We will reopen once we receive approval of our reopening plan that will incorporate guidelines from Unity Worldwide Ministries, OSHA, CDC, and CAPH. It is our intention to keep you well informed of steps being taken to reopen SLC. Please read the enclosed guidelines for SLC’s reopening for more details.
YOUR INPUT IS REQUESTED AND VALUED!
SLC’s Board of Trustees ask that you please complete an online survey on our website by June 30th so SLC will know how to best serve you during these unprecedented times. Visit www.slcworld.org, call (916) 448-6508, or email us at email@example.com for more details.
