Masks on SUndays

As a church family, we are committed to acting in loving and responsible ways. From now through the duration of this current surge, the wearing of masks or face shields will be required inside the Central church building. You'll notice updated signs on all exterior doors and announcements on the Central app, the church website, and across all our social media platforms.

It's important that we keep meeting together in-person as a congregation; we're convinced that worshiping and serving together are vital in shaping us into the image of Christ. And our shepherds believe these steps are necessary to continue our in-person gatherings, to show support of our local public health officials and city leaders, and to protect the well-being of our brothers and sisters at Central. Children's worship is still offered at 10:15 on Sunday mornings.

If you are experiencing any symptoms, if you've tested positive or been exposed to someone testing positive in the past 14-days, please stay home. Keep washing your hands and staying at least six-feet away from others. And, this Sunday at Central, wear your masks.

MEETING TOGETHER AT CENTRAL

 

Worship: Our worship service continues on Sunday mornings, both in-person and online. For all kids (nursery through 5th grade), we are offering children's programming during worship, from 10:15-11:30am.

Wednesday Night Class: Our Wednesday night schedule is fluid right now. Pay attention to our communication channels to see if there are any events planned. On a weekly basis, the student ministry will have either indoor or outdoor activities on Wednesday evenings. There are no children's ministry events or classes on Wednesdays at this time.

Sunday Morning Bible Class: Our Sunday adult Bible classes are on hold for now. The leadership is diligently assessing the current Covid-19 conditions to determine what is best for our community.

WHAT TO EXPECT RIGHT NOW

  • Bring your own mask and wear it while inside the church building. (We'll provide masks for those without.)

  • Please maintain proper social distancing.

  • Restrooms and elevators are open, but please observe social distancing in these spaces.

  • Communion is available in individually packaged kits. Be sure to pick up yours at the door on your way in.

  • Half the pews are open for seating.

OTHER REMINDERS

  • No coffee / donuts / snacks served by the church

  • No children's ministry classes on Wednesdays

  • All exterior and worship center doors will be propped open.

  • The offering will be collected in boxes inside the worship center, or you can give digitally.

  • Bulletins will be provided in the designated pews as well as on our app.

  • Water fountains are taped off.

  • Find hand sanitation stations near each door.

If you are in any of the at-risk categories, it's still a good idea to stay home and participate in our worship assembly online. But if you're not hindered by health concerns, feel free to join us with your mask on next Sunday. There's something noble and transformational in worshiping God, even when it's not easy --- maybe especially when it's not easy. Lifting a strained note of praise to the Lord through a mask can be faithful and formational.

Wearing masks each Sunday is a way for Central to support our local city leaders and health care officials and demonstrate love to our neighbors and the broader community. Our elders continue to monitor the local and regional Covid-19 developments in an effort to protect the Central family. And we're still praying for you and for our entire congregation. Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
