We're excited to gather again soon! 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 co-operation from all of you. Check out the list below so you know what to expect before re-gathering together with us!
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. Per the policy of Leon County Schools, all of those worshiping with us will be subject to a temperature check, and those registering a temperature of above 100* will be asked to stay at home. Of course, throughout your time at Crossbridge, we ask that you maintain 6' social distancing with others. We know it'll be hard, but we also ask you to refrain from hugging or handshaking with anyone who you do not have close physical contact with (i.e. partner, family member, etc.) through the pandemic.
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 phsyical paper bulletin at this time to reduce possible disease spread.
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 only couples, families with children, or households (i.e. you and your roommates) sit together on the same seat. You may bring your own camping chair or other portable seat to sit in if you prefer. 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 will be located throughout the facility for your convenience.
