Re-Gathering Plan During COVID-19
During this time of ongoing concern regarding the COVID-19 virus it is important that we be proactive as the family of faith in our community and not fall prey to an overwhelming spirit of fear. We now as always can trust in the Lord Jesus Christ who has all power, all wisdom & knowledge, and is always with us. This has not caught Him by surprise.
At Cross Church, our goal will be not to overreact as a church or not to under react as well because the concerns are a reality we face and there are those within our community that face this concern with a higher risk to their health. Our desire is to work with the suggestion of our local and federal government of helping slow the spread of this virus while maintaining our religious liberty to freely & safely gather for worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, & gospel proclamation.
Here is our plan for in-person services:
Update to Weekend Services
In-Person Services will resume August 8th/9th with the below measures:
- Enhanced and more frequent cleaning and sanitization areas.
- Limited capacity in our auditoriums and spaced out seating to accomodate physical distancing.
- Added hand sanitizer stations at key entry points for ease of access.
- Masks for everyone 6 and over per Maricopa County Guidelines.
- Temperature checks for all Volunteers and Kids prior to check-in for Kids @ Cross Church Ministries.
