Safety & In-Person Worship

Dear Ones,

Like many others, I have been diligently watching the spread of the latest COVID-19 variants. Certainly, we are living through an incredibly fluid and complex time.

We need to find a way forward that acknowledges the risks that remain for coming together as well as the cost of staying physically isolated from each other.

I am also writing to share some guidelines which will remain in place until we receive more and better information:

  • We will make every effort to hold our family-friendly Saturday 5 pm worship service outdoors, weather permitting.
  • We continue to offer worship online at 10 AM during our main Sunday Worship Service at www.cccathome.org.
  • Inside the church, we ask that you practice appropriate social distancing whenever possible.
  • We encourage you to wear a mask if you, or members of your family, have any concerns about your safety.
  • Please make use of the many options for COVID-19 testing if you suspect that you may have been infected.
  • As always, please use your best judgment always with regard to the way you physically participate in our life and work.

I have sent additional guidelines to our Vacation Bible School and Sunday School program participants. As needs arise, we may offer additional or revised guidelines for the parish as a whole.

Finally, I ask that we meet one another gracefully and accept that, in the current context, there will be many views as to what constitutes best practice.

Please stay engaged, stay tuned, and stay safe. God is working powerfully through us, and I believe that, for such a time as this, God has called us together as a congregation to be Christ’s Body in our world.

Yours faithfully and joyfully,
