In-Person Worship Guidelines

Our re-entry team has met and outlined some guidelines to keep everyone safe.

Re-Entry Update

April 07, 2021


With local vaccination numbers increasing and our effective procedures, we have determined that if we reach 40 new cases per 100,000 people, there will be the possibility of moving to online-only worship. 


We will continue with reservations for in-person worship, including limited spots in the nursery (infant to age 3) and a waiting list when we reach maximum capacity. Starting this week, registrations will remain open until Sunday at 8 AM. If, for some reason, you are unable to join us for in-person worship, please cancel your reservation or let Alisa know. Our in-person seating is limited due to physical distancing. Masks will continue to be required for all persons older than 2 years old.



What to expect for in-person worship

Registrations will open each week on Wednesdays at noon and close on Sundays at 8AM. This will give us ample time to ensure we have adequate seating.

Please reserve a seat for each member in your party. If the standard selection is full, please add your party to the waitlist.

In order to facilitate the safest worship service possible for you the following safety parameters are in place:

  • MAIN ENTRANCE (south doors) open 15 minutes prior to the start of service (the other doors will be locked/unmanned)
  • social distancing will be practiced in all areas of the church
  • masks are required in the building at all times for Sunday services for any person 2 years of age and older (if you don't have a mask, some will be available for you to take home and re-use)
  • you will be ushered to an assigned seat (please stay there during the service)
  • at the end of the service, wait for an usher to release your row
  • infant and toddler nursery is available, pre-registration is required

Some other precautions we'll be taking include:

  • limited building access
  • offering will be collected via a drop-box at the exit of the worship space
  • children's programming is temporarily unavailable


PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

It is your personal responsibility to ensure that you come to church only if you are feeling well and healthy.

Please stay home if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or any other communicable disease, including but not limited to: fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, sore throat, or headache.


Please let us know if you have been found positive for COVID-19 after attending an in-person event at Christ Church

We want to care for each of you and in order to do that we'd like to let you know if we learn of a positive COVID-19 case from someone who attended the same services as you.

If someone reports that they have tested positive for COVID-19, we will not share their name or personal information. Instead, our communication will be like this: "Christ Church has learned that a person who attended services on XX date has recently tested positive for COVID-19."


PLEASE NOTE: Subsequent weekly services will be evaluated regularly and we will pause services if there is a spike in coronavirus cases or guidance from officials asking us to make a change.
