Re Opening Details

This is Pastor Herman L. Pickens of Pilgrim Branch Missionary Church in Houston, Texas. We are also called “The Branch”.

We at “The Branch” continue to strive to keep our congregation, family, and friends safe. Governor Abbott put churches in the category of an essential  business two weeks ago. We are happy to announce that our church will reopen on the second Sunday in May which is May 10th, Mother’s Day! There will be one service only for the first week at 11 AM.

Here are some precautions that we are taking to keep everyone safe and to conform to the latest health guidelines.

1. Per our governor, masks are optional and not mandatory but will be provided upon entry
2. We will refrain from hugging, kissing, and handshaking
3. There will be no food or drink of any kind served
4. We will all enter one way through main entrance,  but exit
 through the rear doors by sanctuary
5. Households are allowed to sit together. All households will be
 properly spaced observing social distancing guidelines
6. No bulletins. All announcements will be verbal or displayed
on screen
7. Prayer will be conducted where we stand.
We are pleased to return to group worship. We pray that you and your family are well. We trust God to guide us through this new experience!
