The Little Brown Church, on Spring Avenue on Signal Mountain, is opening the 2020 summer season on Sunday, June 7 and continuing until Homecoming service on Sunday, Sept. 6.
Officials said, "We are pleased to have Alfred Johnson as speaker for our opening Sunday worship service at 10 a.m.
We want to encourage all to come who are not health compromised or part of a vulnerable population. In order to allow for adequate social distancing, we will eliminate half of the inside seating and space the outside seating 6-feet apart. We ask that family groups sit together.
"Please feel comfortable to bring your own chair for outside seating. We encourage all to wear face coverings. If you do not have a face covering, we will provide one for you. We will not hold children services until later in the season. If you or a member of your family have been exposed to COVID 19 or are displaying any symptoms, we ask that you stay home. If you have pre-existing conditions that might make you more susceptible to risks associated with the virus, we strongly encourage you to stay home. During this pandemic, we want to safely worship together with friends and neighbors for our 112th season.
