Pomona christian Church's Re-entry phase & Guidelines

Amidst concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know how we are responding.


Beginning on Sunday, May 10th, Pomona Christian Church is opening its facility for Sunday Morning services. Due to recommendations from Howell County Health Department and the City of West Plains revolving around churches and businesses operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, Pomona Christian Church will be opening back up our facility with certain guidelines and safety precautions in place.


Our leadership and staff team are monitoring the situation and taking note of recommendations issued by the CDC, WHO, local, state and federal governments. We are committed to providing a safe environment for our church family and community. We will update this page as information evolves.


These guidelines and safety precautions will be in effect until May 31st, 2020. We will reassess the situation at that time. 


We are excited for the opportunity to meet in person yet still want to ensure we are doing everything we can do to protect the safety and well-being of our congregation and our community. Thank you for your willingness to stay involved and connected with our church during the past couple months, care for our community, and grow in your relationship with Jesus!
