Best Practices For Church Re-openings

Oklahoma Churches, 

As we look forward to and prepare for the opportunity to gather in larger groups once again, we recognize that not every church is the same. The diversity of geographical location, number of congregants, property size, budget and technical abilities create both unique challenges and opportunities for every church.  

As a result, we recognize there may be a variety of opinions on the best path forward to reopen churches. While there may not be a one-size-fits-all approach, we have been working to garner ideas from different churches and to share them here as a resource for you. 

We hope this helps us discover best practices, spark new ideas and help each other as we plan the best way forward. The goal is to help keep our churches strong and safe while doing our best to honor government authorities. 

We recommend each church leadership team prayerfully gain clarity for their church before making any major decision. Please feel free to share this page with other churches around our state and country you may be connected with. 

Thank you to all the churches who shared their ideas. If you would like to share your church’s reopening approach, please send to
