CHRIST CHURCH’S SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
-To help ensure the health and safety of our church family, we’re observing social distancing throughout the campuses.
-At each entrance, no contact sanitation stations allow you to clean your hands when you enter and exit.
-Increased cleaning and sanitizing processes take place between services and throughout the morning.
-Doors will be propped open or held open by volunteers with masks to minimize attendees touching surfaces
-Face masks are required.
-We ask that you don’t linger in the lobby after the service, but connect with others in our outdoor spaces.
-We will not be passing the offering baskets, bulletins, or communion. We’d encourage you to utilize the Christ Church IL App or website to access digital bulletins, connect card, giving, and more. Giving boxes will be available if you would still prefer to give in that way and when applicable, communion will be available in individual, pre-packaged packets.
-We have removed chairs and closed certain sections to allow for social distancing.
Whether or not you are able to return to physical gatherings at this time, the most important thing is that we stay spiritually and relationally connected as a church family – in person or online! We will continue to provide online worship, if this is the best option for you and your family, please utilize this option to stay connected in this season!
While we’d love to see each of you in-person, we know there are some limitations that may prevent you from attending. We ask if you find yourself in one of the populations that the CDC has recommended take extra precautions, that you consider continuing to join us online. Find their list of individuals who should take extra precautions here.
