We're excited to gather again at Tallahassee Classical School (located at 4141 Artemis Way) beginning November 8! But of course, we also know that we won't be able to gather together exactly as we did before. In order to worship together safely, we will all need to work together and be as helpful as possible! As a church, we'll implement new systems to help us reduce any potential for contamination or viral spread, but it'll also require some self-policing and cooperation from all of you. Check out the video below for a basic overview, and consult the following list for a full description of what to expect as we re-gather together. (Looking for all the other info you need to plan your visit? Check it out here.)
As you arrive: We ask that all Crossbridge attenders abide by the current Leon County mask ordinance and keep a mask or face covering on at all times while on the premesis (provided you do not meet one of the exceptions to the Leon County policy). If you do not have a mask, we will provide a free disposable one for you. As you walk in, we will also have a green, yellow, or red wristband available for you to put on to indicate to others your comfort level with personal contact ranging from "Hi! Glad to be here, but I'm definitely keeping my distance" (red) to "I'm totally happy to shake hands, hug, whatever" (green) or something in between (yellow). We ask for everyone to please be respectful of others' boundaries! This is an opportunity for us to grow in the all-important grace of loving our neighbors and fellow attenders well.
During our worship gathering: Our goal is to provide a touchless worship experience. In order not to pass around items, you may give a physical offering in the black boxes and each seat will be equipped with a pre-packaged communion cup (along with a pen and connection card) so we do not have to pass around trays during communion. We will not be offering a physical paper bulletin at this time to reduce possible disease spread, but one is available each weekend at crossbridgechristian.com/bulletin.
The worship area will not open to attenders until 10:15. In an effort to practice safe distancing, seating will be spaced apart six feet and we ask that you only sit with those with whom you have not been practicing distance with during the pandemic. (Please respect the wristbands people have chosen!) In order to help us practice social distancing, at the end of service we will dismiss row-by-row to exit, beginning with the back. You can still stick around and chat with friends... just outside and six feet apart for everyone's increased safety!
Increased sanitizing: While "touchless" is our goal in services, we will sanitize all benches, entry doors, and bathroom doors for your safety. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout the facility for your convenience.
