Now is the time for all this to take place, not the week of the “you can go back to church” announcement by government officials.

  1. Deep clean your entire church. Where will germs be transferred? Consider shampooing carpets, sanitizing pews, bathrooms, doorknobs, light switches, and microphones. Should we consider a professional cleaning crew as an initial cleaning before we reopen?
