Welcome Back

Welcome Back Christ Community Church Family!

Sundays at 8:00AM & 9:45AM

 

We’ve taken a slow and steady approach to reopening, and are so grateful for your patience and prayers during this season of COVID-19.  We reopened our campus for Indoor worship services on Sunday, July 12th.  Indoor Worship Services will continue to be Sundays at 8:00AM and 9:45AM.

These services will look and feel slightly different because we’re taking extra steps to prioritize your safety given the known risks of COVID-19.  We will ask you to RSVP online for your family (including children) each week, so we can keep a close eye on crowd size and capacity levels in our various venues.  

We know you probably have a lot of questions about what to expect, so please take a look at the updated Phased Reopening Chart and FAQ sections below. 

New Fall Rhythms at CCC

We feel hugely blessed that attendance continues to increase across our two worship services.  Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to be making a few changes that we believe will help us to continue to provide a worship experience that is inviting and welcoming to everyone. Pastor Mat lays it all out for you in the video to the right!  Reach out with any questions or concerns.  We’re always here to chat.  

Update on Mask Requirements

Hello CCC Family!
 
The topic of face masks has been polarizing for many people in our country. The leadership here at Christ Community Church has continued to evaluate our mask requirements as we have moved through the past few weeks of Indoor Worship Services. We’ve received a lot of helpful feedback from those who are choosing to worship with us because of our mask requirement and those who are feeling frustrated by the strict masking policy. We hear you all and we want to do what we can, within reason, to honor your preferences.
 
Effective Sunday August 9th, our 8:00AM Sunday Services will move to being fully and strictly “masks required” and our 9:45AM Sunday Services will allow for more flexibility by becoming “masks encouraged”.  Please note that as of Sunday August 30th, The Ridge will be opened as an additional “masks encouraged” worship venue at 8:00AM.  The Worship Center will continue to serve as our “masks requried” space during the 8:00AM service time.   
Our hope is that by offering a more flexible “masks encouraged” service at 9:45AM, those with medical or age related mask exemptions and those with strong personal preferences to worship mask-free will all feel welcome and included. By allowing for more flexibility at our 9:45AM service, we also intend to more strictly enforce the mask requirement for all who worship with us at 8:00AM. We are listening and are committed to continuing to seek wisdom and spirit-led guidance on how to best care for the amazing range of people who call CCC home.
 
What this means for you: if you’ve been worshiping with us at 8:00AM but you or a member of your family meets a medical or age exemption and will not be masked, we’d ask you to shift to attending at our 9:45AM service. If you’re someone who is feeling more cautious and apprehensive about being in groups, we’d encourage you to worship with us online or join us at our 8:00AM service, which will require masks for all. We’d like to highlight that at both of our service times, some worship, production and teaching team staff and volunteers may remove their masks during the service to perform their roles. We ask for your grace and understanding as they make every effort to do so in respect of those around them.
 
Please continue to RSVP online for our Indoor Worship Services so that we can better predict attendance numbers and capacity in our worship venues.  If you have any questions, please reach out and we’ll be happy to chat with you.
 
See you Sunday!

Frequently Asked Questions

When and where will services be offered?

We will hold two weekend services on Sundays at 8:00am and 9:45am.  Masks will be strictly required at our 8:00AM service.  Masks will be encouraged, but not required at our 9:45AM service.  Services will be held in the Worship Center, but we may open up alternate venues in The Ridge and SouthPoint, if we start to exceed capacity in the Worship Center.  Please plan to arrive on time or even a little bit early to give our Welcome Teams time to get you seated.  If the Worship Center is full when you arrive, you will be offered a seat in one of our other worship venues.  

Why RSVP? Do I need to RSVP every week?
Your RSVP allows us to better predict how many people we can expect at each service time so that we can maintain appropriate social distancing. We are asking that families RSVP together for the total number of people who are planning to attend. 

Please RSVP every week.

*An RSVP does not guarantee a seat in the Worship Center, but it allows us to know how many people will be coming through our doors and if we need to open alternate venues for seating.

Will masks be required for Indoor Worship Services?

Effective August 9th, 2020, masks will be required at our 8:00AM Indoor Worship Service.  If you and your family would feel most comfortable worshiping with others who are also fully masked, we invite you to join us at this service time.  Our 9:45AM service will become “masks encouraged” so that folks with medical or age exemptions and those who have strong personal preferences to worship mask-free can join us for worship at this more flexible service.  

Please plan to bring your own mask, as we only have a small number to give out.  If you are not comfortable worshiping at these worship services, we encourage you to plan to worship with us through our live-streamed Online Worship Service from home. 

What can I expect when I come for Indoor Worship Services?
You can expect to be greeted by a welcome team who will guide you through parking, entering the building, and finding your seats. 

You can expect our campus to be well cleaned and for arrangements to be made to prioritize cleanliness and social distancing. 

You can expect to be seated with your family by one of our ushers. 

You can expect to bring your own Bible, notebook, pens, tissues, etc. for use during the service. We’ve removed the “shared touch” items from the worship venues, for the time being, in an effort to stop the spread of germs.  We invite you to fill out a digital connect card or a digital prayer request, since we won’t have paper copies available to you.  

You can expect to get all of your “hot sheet” updates and information digitally, via The CCC Weekly.  If you are not currently receiving that email, please email our Communications Director, Laura Burleson.

You can expect to drop your generous offerings in one of the secure offering boxes in the hallway outside of the Worship Center or online, as we won’t be passing an offering plate for a while longer. 

You can expect the Commons and coffee bar to remain closed for a season.  If you want refreshments, please plan to bring your own (lidded, please!) beverages.   

What is available for my children?
At this time, we will not have any Adventure Kids or Student Ministry programming on Sunday mornings.  Children are invited to worship along with their families and will be asked to stay with a parent/caregiver at all times.  Adventure Kids activity packs will be available to children who may need something to do to occupy their hands, and minds, during the service. 

The playgrounds and all Children’s Ministry spaces will be closed until further notice.  If you need access to the Nursing Mother’s Room, please speak with Clarissa Gonzalez at the Children’s welcome desk. 

What do I need to know about wellness policies and decision?
Please stay informed about COVID-19 and the steps you can take to stop the spread of this virus.  We recommend you look to the CDC and the North Carolina Department of Heath and Human Safety for more information and best practices. 

If you are feeling sick or if anyone in your family is presenting symptoms of illness, please worship with us from home to prevent unnecessary expose to others. If you have traveled to an area that has been deemed unsafe due to COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home and worship with us online.  

If you worship with us, in-person, and then become ill and test positive for COVID-19, please contact CCC’s Interim Executive Pastor, Wes Harrison, immediately.  Your privacy and confidentiality will be maintained as we contact others who worshiped with you, to inform them of their possible exposure.  

*Please note that while we are taking as many precautions as we can to honor safety guidelines, you are entering the church building at your own risk.

How can I join in worship if I'm not comfortable gathering in-person?

We invite you to join us for a true “Live” streamed online worship service that begins at 9:45AM on Sundays; right when the second service begins in the Worship Center. We will rebroadcast the online worship service throughout the day on Sunday and you’ll be able to watch on demand through our app or website by 5:00PM on Mondays.  A direct link for the live stream is easily accessible from our home page, so head there on Sunday morning!  

Still not comfortable coming to our in-person worship services? Join us Sunday’s at 9:45AM when we stream the service live online!
