LATEST UPDATE FROM C3 CHURCH

November 6


IN-PERSON, INDOOR SERVICES HAVE RESUMED

We have been meeting in person, inside, since October 4th. Live streams continue on facebook and YouTube. While we hope you will join us in person or online, only you can make a decision on what is best for you and your family. We want you to be able to make a well-informed decision, so below you will find precautions and policies regarding church in the time of COVID-19 for you to consider as you make plans to join us when you feel comfortable. If you are one who is more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19, you may want to adopt a "wait and see" approach to resuming indoor services with us. Ultimately, it is our hope that you will feel safe while we gather as a people to worship God.


GENERAL COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS & POLICIES

– Service will begin at 10:00 am

– The Aroma Cafe food service will remain closed for the time-being. No coffee or food will be available.

– Our Welcome Team staff will be reduced to limit congregating in the halls, and will not be offering handshakes or passing out sermon notes or giving envelopes. They will, however, be available to answer questions, hold a door open for you, and guide you where you need to go.

– We encourage you to wear a mask, although it will not be required throughout the building, except during the service in the Aroma Cafe. Masks will be available at the Welcome Center if you would like one.

– Masks will be required in the Aroma Cafe area from 9:50 am (10 minutes before service begins) until the end of service. Please wear a mask over your mouth and nose during the service while in the Cafe.

– Please do your part to help keep others safe by not congregating in the hallway, keeping your distance from others, leaving space between your family group and another during service, washing your hands, and using the sanitizer stations set up throughout the building.

– The Aroma Cafe will be available with a live feed of the service to help spread the congregation out.

– Additional exits will be available in the Sanctuary after service.

– To help reduce congestion, we will be dismissing in a staggered manner following service. Those without children in C3 Kids will be asked to use the additional exits at the front and back of the sanctuary. Parents of elementary age children will be dismissed first to pick them up from Kids Town upstairs. Once they are finished, parents of nursery–kindergarten children may then go pick up their kids.

– Please avoid standing in the hallway. The Sanctuary, Aroma Cafe, and outdoors are the best places to congregate.
