Crosspoint In-Person Worship Guidelines

Our leadership have been in prayerful conversation about resuming church activities. We have consulted with other churches, reached out to our congregation, heard from our Bishop, and read through the protocols from state and national health care organizations to develop our guidelines.

The survey of our congregation shows almost 53% are ready to gather for worship, with precautions, as soon as we are able.  Another 28% will wait additional weeks before attending.  The final 19% will be waiting some time before coming back or are unsure. Based on this information, this is our plan (pending any new health directives from the state):

  • Small groups can begin to meet in any large room to ensure proper spacing.  Larger groups such as youth activities can gather in the Worship Center using proper spacing. *Childcare will not be available for any groups at this time.
  • In person Worship will meet in the Worship Center on Sundays at 10:30am
    • For seating, appropriate physical distancing measures will be in place.
    • Family groups will be encouraged to sit together.
    • There will be no nursery, JAM or Jr. Church or Children’s activity bags offered right now.
    • Parents please bring coloring pages or activity items for your children.
    • No coffee or refreshments will be offered
    • Some will choose to wear masks, and some will choose not to.  If you are in close proximity with others, we encourage the wearing of a mask.
    • Masks will be available for anyone who would like to use one.
    • We will prop open doors to limit the need to touch handles.
    • We will not be sharing a paper bulletin; however, information on activities will continue through our weekly email, Facebook page and website.
    • We will practice social distancing throughout the building, including bathrooms.
    • Offering will be collected by one person and not by passing a basket.
    • We are encouraging singing in the way we are accustomed to in worship, not like in the car or shower, in order to protect the people around you.
    • We will continue to clean and disinfect the building each week in between our Sunday worship services.
  • Our Live Stream service will continue for those who prefer to continue to worship from home.

Please know that the details of this plan may change, and we will keep you informed of any updates.
