Our Plan For Regathering


Three Sunday Services


8:30a  |  10:00a  |  11:30a.

There is no need to pre-register. The seating has been reduced and configured for distancing. If you haven't reviewed our infection prevention protocols, check them out below.


Online Worship

We'll continue streaming our 10:00 am service live, on our website. If you have health concerns that make you vulnerable to infection, I hope you'll gather with us online! And we can all invite friends and relatives to check out BBC online. Many people looking for a church will attend online before they choose to attend in person!

Children's Ministry

We're offering clean, safe options for children during the 10:00a & 11:30a services. Children are also welcome in the auditorium, with a parent.


"Thrive" Teens

Teens in 6th-12th grade will continue having an engaging time of worship, fellowship, and instruction during the 11:30 am service, with our dedicated (and super-fun!) leaders, Nathan & Melanie Carpenter and Rob & Rebecca Combs.


Infection Prevention

Hand-sanitizer will also be available in the lobby.


All high-contact areas of the facility will be sanitized before and after each service, including restrooms, door handles, welcome center, lobby tables, seating surfaces, etc.

Masks are encouraged/requested at 8:30am, and optional at 10:00am, and 11:30am.


We will not be shaking hands, hugging, or having physical contact with those outside of our own household, for now.
We will enter only the main (west) entry doors and exit the side (south) doors. Greeters, who will be wearing masks, will open the doors upon entry and exit, to prevent having to touch door handles.We have spaced out our auditorium seating, allowing 6-feet between each row of worshippers.


Pens, envelopes, Bibles, and hymn books will be removed. A sermon handout will be provided. Bring your own pen.
Offering plates will not be passed. Deposit boxes will be available in the lobby, along with a supply of giving envelopes. Continued use of online giving through howellchurch.org/give is encouraged.


While the restrooms will be open, we ask that you use the restroom before arriving in order to reduce the number of people coming into contact with the door handles and restroom fixtures.


If the auditorium reaches its seating capacity (reduced due to physical distancing), worshippers may view livestream in the basement fellowship area, where a TV and physically distanced seating is provided.
