Men's Ministry
Emergence Youth Group

We have been monitoring guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe manner.  After significant prayer and preparations, we will resume services at Olive Branch Community Church on Sunday, May 31st at 10:00am.  As we once again gather to worship the Lord together, we’re committed to creating an environment that meets government recommendations for safety for your health and wellbeing. To make that possible, our weekend services have been redesigned to create a sanitary, touchless environment that allows for physical distancing. 


Let’s Work Together to Stay Healthy

    What We’re Doing:

  • Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks. 

  • Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.

  • All OBCC services will be a touchless experience. A touchless thermometer will be used at the door. No meet and greet time during the service. 

  • All high-volume areas and surfaces will be sanitized regularly.

  • There will be NO Sunday School, Nursery or Children’s church available at this time.

  • No water fountains will be open or usable.

  • No hospitality food or beverages will be offered.  You are welcome to bring your own coffee or bottled water / drink.

  • All paper and pens will be removed.

  • Seating will be reconfigured to accommodate proper distancing.

  • Worship will include: Welcome, Announcements, Prayer, Singing, Message, Song and Dismissal


    How You Can Help:

  • If you don't feel well, have health concerns, or are in a high-risk demographic (elderly and those with underlying medical conditions) please stay home and join us on Facebook Live.

  • We encourage you to wear a mask and will have a limited number available for you if needed.

  • Please wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often.

  • Maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and other guests. Individuals please try to leave the seating sections of multiple chairs for couples and the tables for families. 

  • Children should remain in the care of their household unit and not interact with children of other parties. 

  • Do not move chairs or tables and please only use (touch) one chair.
