TCCC COVID-19 Update 11/18/20


November 18, 2020

Dear Members and Friends of TCCC, 

By now, most of you have heard of the new guidelines in Iowa regarding gatherings. The TCCC church board has been studying these guidelines and prayerfully considering how we as a church will move ahead as we worship.   The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and they confirmed churches are allowed to meet,  but asked that we continue to follow the social distancing guidelines and safety measures.  In addition, they recommended that individuals wear masks when not seated in the sanctuary.  

The TCCC board has made the following revision to our COVID-19 procedures:

  • Individuals ages two and older will wear masks anytime when not seated in the sanctuary (ie:  arrival, dismissal, restroom)

  • Adult Bible classes will wear masks

  • Prayer meetings will wear masks 

  • Children, teens, and adult volunteers will wear masks during classes and/or youth group

  • Groups using church facilities will adhere to these guidelines

We will continue the following COVID-19 procedures:

  • Sanitize and clean weekly, with a COVID mitigation spray being applied as directed by the manufacturer

  • Individually wrapped,  pre-packaged communion will be offered

  • Offering will be collected in the boxes at the sanctuary entrance and online at

  • Members of the same household should sit together, leaving space between themselves and non-household members 

Please be aware of the following schedule changes

  • We will NOT host the Harvest Dinner in November

  • We will NOT host a children’s Christmas program

  • We WILL host our Christmas Eve service at 6:30 p.m. December 24th.  

In spite of all the challenges we have faced in the past year, God is still working and moving in the lives of his people and at TCCC.  Keep watching to see how you can be a part of buying gifts for Show Me kids this year. Keep praying for the lost and those that are looking for hope as they face the challenges of this world that they may find shelter in rest in the Lord.  “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1


God Bless, 

TCCC Church Board
