Welcome Back

Welcome Back Christ Community Church Family!

July 12th, 2020 – 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 are so excited to announce that we are reopening our campus for Indoor worship services beginning Sunday, July 12th with services 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When and where will services be offered?
We will hold two weekend services on Sundays at 8:00am and 9:45am.  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?
The RSVP allows us to know how many people we can expect so that we can maintain appropriate social distancing. We are asking that families RSVP together. 

 

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 in-person worship?
Yes.  At this point, we want to honor the Governor’s request for mask usage to be enforced at gatherings where 6 foot social distancing cannot be guaranteed.  While we intend to provide a worship experience that is set up to allow for proper social distancing, we love you all enough that we want you to take the extra step of requiring masks for the entirety of your time on campus.

Please plan to bring your own mask, as we only have a small number to give out to those who may not be informed about the policy.  If you are not willing to worship with a mask on, we encourage you to plan to worship with us through our live-streamed Online Worship Service from home. 

We will provide an update on mask requirements when we get to a point where we feel confident inviting you to worship without masks.  

Can I Get More Details on Mask Requirements?

We’re planning to address the topic of masks week by week. For Sunday July 12, we will be requiring masks to be worn for the duration of your time on campus. We invite anyone who is unwilling to worship in a mask to join us for our streamed online service at 10AM. If you meet a medical or age exemption, we would encourage you to worship online for your safety, but we will allow those who meet exemptions to join us at the indoor worship services, if that is their preference.  

What can I expect when I come for in person 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 Gonzales at the Children’s welcome desk. 

Will Outdoor Worship Gatherings continue?
Sunday July 5th will be our last Outdoor Worship Gathering.  We hope to see many of you there!  You can RSVP for that final outdoor gathering here
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?
A streamed Online Worship Service will be available each Sunday at 10:00AM.  The service will also be available on demand on Sunday afternoons and will remain online the following week.  Links will be easily accessible from our website each week, so check back for those on the 12th! 

Still not comfortable coming to our in-person worship service? Join us for online!
