The following COVID-19 safety measures are currently in place in our congregation:
In order to ensure social distancing, we are currently hosting two Sunday services with a maximum attendance of 50 people at each service. Others worship with us online via our livestream at our 11am service.
Before each Sunday we will perform a thorough cleaning of high traffic areas such as lobbies, halls, sanctuary, Loft, office, and areas of ingress and egress including stairways, stairwells, handrails, and bathrooms. We will also be frequently disinfecting commonly used surfaces including doorknobs, toilets, handwashing facilities, pulpits and podiums, offering baskets, and pews.
Doors will be propped open before and after service to assist with a touchless entering and exiting of the facility.
Upon arrival at the church the Greeter will ask to take each person’s temperature with a touchless thermometer, providing hand sanitizer and providing face coverings to those who don’t have one. Please note: Leaders and musicians will not be wearing masks/face covering while leading the service from the chancel.
We will have hand sanitizer dispensers, available at the entrance, in bathrooms, before entering the sanctuary, and before individuals take communion.
Sickness in your household
If you are sick, not feeling well, or have family members who are ill, PLEASE stay home and worship with us through the live stream. Also, if you end up testing positive for Covid-19 let us know and we will mobilize support efforts for your household.
When greeting or sharing the peace with one another please be mindful of social distancing, wave or use other greetings.
Please bring your own mask/cloth face coverings:
Note: face coverings should not be placed on children younger than 2 years old, anyone who has trouble breathing and anyone who is incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance. Face coverings are meant to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms.
Our worship guides will be available at the building however, they are also accessible in digital form at cornerstoneanglican.com
We will Not be offering Nursery/Children’s Ministry: Children should remain in the care of those in their household and not interact with children of other families. Consider bringing items for your child/children to look at quietly during service. We will have some activity bags available during the service.
Restrooms will be regularly sanitized and have sufficient soap and hand sanitizer.
We encourage congregants who are living together, to sit together, at least six feet apart from other congregants. Seating will be reconfigured to help maintain physical distancing of six feet or more between congregants/visitors from different households.
For communion we will bless both the wine and the bread but only be serving the bread to the congregation.
We will not be serving any refreshments, coffee, or pastries for the time being to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Concerning tithes and offerings, we will have a way for you to make an offering in the service with the usher bringing the offering basket close to you but we won’t pass the basket around. The usher will be the only one touching the basket. Also consider using our on-line giving link located at cornerstoneanglican.com/giving
